Olivia is a healer, with her gifts and knowledge passed down through her grandmother’s line. The small town of Tristan, Colorado relies on her for all their medical help – until a doctor from the east hangs his shingle in their town. The audio version of this book was nicely read. The setting decently drawn, the story predictable. ( )

Olivia's Touch, the first book of a series in the successful HeartQuest line, is a story about rebellion and reconciliation set in nineteenth century Colorado. Forced into partnership with an arrogant Eastern doctor, Olivia must protect her calling to heal . . . and her heart.

Olivia Plummer learned the healing arts from her grandmother. The people of Tristan, Colorado come to the young woman when they are sick, wounded, or in childbirth. But when a Boston doctor sets up his practice in the small western town, he is skeptical of her folk medicine. And his cold detachment quickly offends Olivia. When an accident forces them to work side by side, however, Dr. Gray and Olivia realize that each has special gifts. As the doctor shares his scientific knowledge, she tells him of her joyous reliance on God's guidance. But can these two people from different worlds trust each other enough to nourish a shared faith?… (more)
