Summary

Healing Springs is a quirky little town tucked away in the mountains in the middle of nowhere, tucked so far, in fact, that it could have faded away a dozen times over if not for the healing springs it was named for. The Healing Springs Inn grew up around those springs, then the town around the Inn…and for hundreds of years, the healing waters there has brought both curious tourists and desperate souls seeking relief from what ailed them. 

Selene and Amy, fast friends since childhood, longed to escape from their small town. Selene wanted to write stories, not be a part of them…and Amy had dreams of travel and excitement behind the lens of a camera. As soon as they could, they left Healing Springs behind and went their separate ways. 

But, the legends and stories behind Healing Springs have a habit of following you beyond the town’s boundaries, seeking you out wherever water flows freely. When Selene is badly injured in a car accident that leaves her battered and broken, her memories tattered into shreds, she reluctantly returns home. 

She thought she was going home to hide from the world, but little did she know that her world…the one she had forgotten had also found its way back to Healing Springs. 

The two women are reunited, and a journey back to love and self-acceptance begins. New memories and old stories bring the true spirit of the Springs back to life, and as it should be…what was lost is once again found.

Beautifully Poetic

This was a beautifully poetic, inspiring story.

Selene has suffered in a horrific life altering car crash and returned home to healing springs. Her story evades many emotions, but deeply focuses on the difficulties she faces as a result of the accident. How it has altered her life and focusing largely on how people are affected with many emotions after such events. Rhavensfyre has perfectly captured a grieving process in her words here, put them into a beautiful and emotional story that stays with you.

Having listen to the audiobook, I would love to read the book now and see if I feel any different about the words when I read them, but Stephanie Montalvo was an excellent choice to narrate this book. She brought a uniqueness to Selene’s character, surprising me with how well she conveyed her character’s feelings through tone, and pacing of the narration. When voicing the story, she had excellent timing in keeping me thrilled to listen on.

The characters were easily distinguished with the accents Stephanie used for them, making for a unique listening experience. Her voice just enhanced the poetic edge of the words, perfectly delivering the beautiful story in an unforgettable way.

A thoroughly enjoyable but emotional listen, that I can’t recommend enough.

Sometimes a little fantasy is good

I am not into fantasy and witches but a dash of fantasy is excellent, when a book is well written and the story flows like this one. I loved this book loved the characters, loved the story line, loved the patience and the way the plot revealed itself.
Narration was excellent it is the first time I listen to a book narrated by Stephanie Montalvo and I am looking forward to listen to more.

A different kind of story of magical realism

This is the story of Selene who’s having good success as a writer, but after an accident that leaves her with severe injuries including a little loss of memory, she has to go back live to her childhood home in Healing Srpings. She also reconnects with an old friend Amy, with whom she gets a deeper connection. Her goal is to rebuild her life, but while doing so, there’s a mystery to be solved.

It is a very good book; it is as well a different story. This one goes with a lot of magic and mysticism, there’s a mystery too. It got me on the edge of my seat most of the time. I was eager to keep listening to find out what was going on and what was the truth behind the mystery. At points I was as confused as Amy but as determined as her to know what was going. It creeped me out a bit in a few places, but nothing that made me stop. Overall I enjoyed the story and the narration is excellent, I love the voices and I think Stephanie Montalvo did a brilliant job.

Pretty writing

pretty writing, not in the mood for this type of story. 5 chapters in, and I can't get interested. Narration is good enough not to be noticed much, or detract.

mislabeled

Magic/metaphysical should have been in the description somewhere. not a happy listener.
Narration had only a few mistakes and you could tell the difference between characters.
