About Healing Hazel

Healing Hazel

Hazel Thornton has one great ambition: to help the sick and wounded as a nurse. But that dream can never become a reality. After a devastating childhood trauma, she has spent her life battling fits of panic that make it impossible to finish her studies. Everything changes, however, when a trip to Spain takes a perilous turn that derails her plans to visit her father for Christmas and immediately plunges her into the dangers of a brutal war.

With single-minded focus, she springs into action to help her fellow travelers. To ensure their continued care, she begins work at a Spanish hospital alongside Dr. Jim Jackson, a man whose only emotion seems to be wariness of his new assistant. Armed with gifts of support from each of her dearest friends, a group that dubs themselves the Blue Orchid Society, Hazel embarks on a journey of hope and healing to battle the demons of her past with the help of the doctor who has captured her heart.

My review

I’m loving each and every one of these Blue Orchid Society novels. If I’m going to pick a favorite right now, it’s going to be Hazel. I loved her story so much!

Hazel is a young woman who has been training to be a nurse. Something that I really loved about Hazel was the way she thought that she wasn’t strong. I think in a way she thought that she was broken. Because Hazel suffers from severe anxiety. But as Hazel goes on this journey, she learns that she isn’t broken. Is she perfect, no way! But are any of us? Hazel learns that she is strong, even with her anxiety, and that was beautiful.

I really liked Jim as well. Jim deals with a lot of things, due to his background. And that makes it hard for him to let people in. But he lets Hazel in without even thinking about it. I loved watching these two characters as they lived and worked together. There were a lot of misunderstandings between the two of them. But they were there for each other when it really counted.

I loved the ending of this one so much! You’re going to have to read it to see just why. This book is so great! I loved every bit of it.

I was sent a copy of Healing Hazel as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
