In this story, high-flying and high-living advertising executive Erica is given the most dreadful of news. She has inoperable stage-four pancreatic cancer and only a few months left to live. In desperation, with the help of her faithful assistant Hilda, she seeks out the only chance left - a famous faith healer named Arpan, who hasn't practiced in over twenty years after a series of articles that discredited him.
So begins a fascinating journey as Erica discovers many things about herself and about the world. Everything it seems is linked somehow.
While, I really enjoyed the story and the writing of Christoph Fischer, as I always do, there were a few times when I felt the plot strayed a little from the believable. That having been said, if you're a committed conspiracy theorist, you'll just nod your head sagely at those points. The book does a fantastic job of asking and reminding us about; "what it is we are here for". There are plenty of life lessons that can be gleaned from the pages.
Christoph Fischer is a superb "indie" author and one of the leading lights in the "indie" author community. The Healer is a continuation of the superb contribution he continues to make to independently published literature. Well done him!
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good adventure story that touches all the right places in our thoughts. A book that makes you think is more than just plain entertainment and The Healer is one such book. A solid four star rating from me.
