Book Review!

Hey Everyone!!

For this weeks post I have a book review to share with you! It’s my first time writing an actual book review, so please cut me some slack. πŸ˜€

Kaelyn did a review on the second book in this series. I hadn’t heard of the series before Kaelyn’s review, so Thank You, Kaelyn! πŸ˜€

Anyway, I am doing my best to not have any spoilers, but if you are really worried then you probably shouldn’t read this!

The Healer’s ApprenticeΒ  By Melanie Dickerson



When I got the book from the library I was expecting another boring christian, historical romance book. I was pleasantly surprised that The Healer’s Apprentice was actually quite original! It was a refreshing to read an interesting christian, historical romance book. For the most part they are all the same, admittedly it was similar to other books but much of it was original.

The Healer’s Apprentice was actually suspenseful! It was fairly obvious that Rose and Lord Hamlin were going to end up together somehow, but I had no idea how until the middle of the book. It also wasn’t until about three fourths of the way through the book that it was obvious what Rose’e true identity was.

A summary of the book from Goodreads is:

“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 herβ€”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.”

The Healer’s Apprentice is loosely based on Sleeping Beauty. Honestly other then the evil sorcerer, I didn’t see many (or any) similarities to Sleeping Beauty.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes christian, historical romance books!

Well, I hope that this review was helpful. πŸ˜€
