Francine has decided to leave the busy city she was accustomed to after her fiance broke off their engagement. She believes her calling is to work with the Frontier Nursing Service as a nurse midwife-in-training, and was placed in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky. Life on these hills is very different from what she has known, but Fran has decided that she will make it work, especially since she has discovered that she loves "catching babies." What she does not expect, is to not only love midwifery, but also the hills, and the people that she cares for. While the hills are beginning to heal her heart, Fran finds herself more in love with Kentucky, and perhaps a certain young man that has just returned home from the war overseas.

These Healing Hills by Ann Gabhart was a very good book! I sincerely hope that there is a sequel in the making as I want to know what happens to everyone in this book! Thank you so much LibraryThing Early Reviewers for the wonderful book. I loved it so much, I recommended it to my mom...who read it and loved it too! ( )

An excellent historical fiction book. The descriptions on mountain life and the people who lived there are detailed and thorough. The story left me wanting to learn more on the Frontier Nursing Service. ( )

These Healing Hills captured me! I loved the characters, the life of the midwives and the mountain people they served. Francine Howard choses to leave her privileged life behind to become a Frontier Nurse in the Appalachian mountains after her boyfriend breaks off their relationship. Her mother is horrified and no one thinks she can manage the rough rigors of serving the mountain people. She wants to try but there's more to learn than bringing babies into the world. She meets a recently returned War II veteran, Ben Locke when she gets lost on the hill. They survive a deluge under a rock outcropping which starts an edgy relationship. Francine's faith in God deepens as her trials stretch her dealing with the mountain people.
I could say more but you really need to read it. The characters are full, complex, and real. The author's writing is superb..

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and Publishing. My comments are my own and was under no obligation to do so. ( )

Satisfying tale of life in Kentucky's Appalachian Mountains and set in post World War II. Readers of this book will not only enjoy the sweetest romance, but also learn about the Frontier Nursing Service, a program established in 1925 to provide midwifery and family health care to the hill people.

The story of a broken heart and how love can be found a second time is one of my favorites by this author, she has made Francine a very likeable character and you can see her heart as she gets to know the hillbilly locals her mother warned her against. She's finding out these people may be very different and poor but they are hard working and genuinely care about others.

When Francine meets Ben, who has returned from war, their story takes off on a journey that is sweet and a bit comical. I totally enjoyed the setting and the people in this book.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.​ ​ ( )
