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.

Hott Review:

The Healer’s Apprentice is a sweet fairy tale told with a Christian heart. This is an adorable book. Appropriate for most older teens and all adults.
There iss a great adventurepaired with a sweet romance and a fight between good and evil. It’s really very fun how Ms. Dickerson pulls this together. Some would say it’s a Cinderella, or a Rags to Riches Riches, story but I really think that it shows a great picture of God’s love and how he pulls all things together at the perfect timing even though we would prefer He do things in our time.
