I  enjoyed reading Healing Stone by Brock Booher, set in 1955 Cumberland County, Kentucky. The author brought the picture of this time and place to life in the pages of this book.  Ezekiel Stone Molony, abandoned in a graveyard as a baby. Found by the sheriff, crying with with a note to give him to the family of Billy & Ada Molony. He doesn't know any more about his birth parents.   Stone, a 17 year old boy finds he has the gift to heal after he runs over his his dog Rusty with the mowing machine on the tractor. As he digs into his past, trying to learn who his birth parents are and where does the gift of healing come from, he witnesses corruption, racism, and violence. Leading a somewhat sheltered life up to this point he learns a lot about the these things.   Full of suspense, mystery, some spirituality, fiction with some history thrown in. I cried at some parts, made me really think at other parts, as to how I would handle such a situation.  This was a book I didn't want to put down until finished, then was disappointed that I had came to the end. I highly recommend this book to all my family and friends looking for an interesting suspenseful read.

something for everyone Did I enjoy this book: I loved it. I couldn’t put it down. It was an unusual story about an adopted boy who discovers he has the gift of healing. The tale developed into a criminal mystery that led the main character into a dangerous riddle of lies and murder. It was well-written, has nicely developed characters, and a unpredictable plot. The conflicts were both internal and external. Several characters had compelling issues to resolve and each was wrapped up by the end of the story. I couldn’t find any unresolved questions or head scratching moments. The story flowed easily from cover to cover. Would I recommend it: I think this book offers a broad appeal to readers who enjoy religious books, fantasy, murder mysteries, and even young adult. I think there’s something for everyone in this story. I plan to recommend it to our book group and then I’d definitely want to re-read it. As reviewed by Belinda at Every Free Chance Book Reviews.

I completely enjoyed the book!  Such a rich setting and vivid characters.  It grabbed me from the first chapter and held my interest through the end.  I think my 16 year old son would also enjoy it....
