The Healer’s Apprentice By, Melanie Dickerson
Publishing House: Zondervan
Summary: Two Hearts. One Hope.
Rose has been appointed as a healer's apprentice at Hagenheim Castle, a rare opportunity for a woodcutter's daughter like her. While she often feels uneasy at the sight of blood, Rose is determined to prove herself capable. Failure will mean returning home to marry the aging bachelor her mother has chosen for her---a bloated, disgusting merchant who makes Rose feel ill.
When Lord Hamlin, the future duke, is injured, it is Rose who must tend to him. As she works to heal his wound, she begins to understand emotions she's never felt before and wonders if he feels the same. But falling in love is forbidden, as Lord Hamlin is betrothed to a mysterious young woman in hiding. As Rose's life spins toward confusion, she must take the first steps on a journey to discover her own destiny.
Reason for Rating:
This is my first G rated book! Now when I say it’s G rated it just means that it is family friendly. There is one part where she says she is seeing demons but she was poisoned right before that so it was an affect of the poison.
I really loved this story and all the twists and turns it took. Granted I did see the big one coming but that is because I read books like this a lot. You can also find this book in several Christian book stores, which I didn’t know until after I had read the book.
I would highly recommend this book.
