I like a book that has you second guessing all the way through. One that grabs hold and takes you on a wonderful journey. This book is exactly like that. I changed my mind as to who is wrong and who is right, who could be trusted and who couldn’t, from the start through to the finish.
The story tells of Erica, a successful advertising executive who is diagnosed with terminal cancer. After exhausting her options using conventional treatments, she seeks out a healer and convinces him to treat her. The descriptions of her treatments, her own attitude to them, and what happens afterwards, kept me chasing after the truth of that happened.
This book hooked my interest and at no point could I guess what was coming next. I can’t honestly say I warmed to any of the characters, but that was probably because it so was so well written I didn’t know who to trust at any given point. Overall, a great read.
My rating - 4/5
I recommend this book to anyone who likes a story full of twists and turns.
When advertising executive Erica Whittaker is diagnosed with terminal cancer, western medicine fails her. The only hope left for her to survive is controversial healer Arpan. She locates the man whose touch could heal her but finds he has retired from the limelight and refuses to treat her. Erica, consumed by stage four pancreatic cancer, is desperate, and desperate people are no longer logical nor are the willing to take no for an answer. Arpan has retired for good reasons, casting more than the shadow of a doubt over his abilities. So begins a journey that will challenge them both as the past threatens to catch up with him as much as with her. Can he really heal her? Can she trust him with her life? And will they both achieve what they set out to do before running out of time?
