Healing Love by Jennifer Slattery

A news anchor intern has it all planned out, and love isn't on the agenda. Brooke Endress is on the cusp of her lifelong dream when her younger sister persuades her to chaperone a mission trip to El Salvador. Packing enough hand sanitizer and bug spray to single-handedly wipe out malaria, she embarks on what she hopes will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But Brooke is blindsided by the desperation for hope and love she sees in the orphans’ eyes. And no less by the connection she feels with her handsome translator. As newfound passion blooms, Brooke wrestles with its implications for her career dreams. Ubaldo Chavez, teacher and translator, knows the struggle that comes with generational poverty. But he found the way out – education – and is determined to help his students rise above. When he agrees to translate for a mission team from the United States he expects to encounter a bunch of "missional tourists" full of empty promises. Yet an American news anchor defies his expectations, and he finds himself falling in love. But what does he have to offer someone with everything?

About the Author

Y'all know I love a good story. I'm always down for a story that keeps me reading and reading. Jennifer's books are always that way. Sometimes they are so realistic they are hard to read but you can't stop even then. I am amazed at yet another winner from Jennifer.

My Thoughts.....
Another awesome read from Jennifer! This one was different from her other books that I've read, in my opinion. An excellent book for sure but this one felt different as I read. Maybe because it touched a different part of my heart, than her previous books did. This book definitely broke my heart, but in a good way. The story really made me want to hop on a plane straight for El Salvador to save all of the orphan children. I just can't stand to see or read about children being mistreated or not cared for/about. It made me long to hold those sweet girls in my arms. This book definitely touched my mothers heart. Jennifer always has such a way with words that puts you right in the middle of the story as if you are there. I enjoyed all the characters in the book. I think Fatima and Dinora were my most favorites. I think I will always enjoy Jennifer's books no matter what tough subject she chooses to tackle next. I received this book from the author for free. A positive review was not required. All opinions are my own.


  1. I have read Healing Love. And, you are right it is a outstanding book. I loved it.

  2. I am trying the book, and enjoying it. It has been a little harder for me to get into it because I am a paperback reader and am reading it in e book version. It always takes me longer that way. But so far it has been good.

  3. Loved this read so much! Thanks for sharing!
