She was called to be a healer, but her skills--and heart--have never been so challenged.
Levi Masters's time as a British spy hasn't ended, though his country's war with America has. After overhearing a scout reveal a discovery that could give America the upper hand in future conflicts, Levi is sent on one last mission. While trekking through the Canadian Rockies in pursuit of his former enemy, he is taken captive by warriors from a hidden mountain village.
Village healer Audrey Moreau is more curious than afraid of the outsider, and she's drawn to his commitment to honesty even at his own expense. Despite her arguments for his release, the council remains at an impasse. Compelled to help him escape, she sneaks him out of the village. But when Levi faces a life-threatening injury and the fierce mountain winter closes in, Levi and Audrey are forced to discover just how far they'll go to ensure the safety of the other and the love growing between them.

Audrey and Levi
This is the second book in the Brides of Laurent series. I have to say I liked this one more than I did the first book. Although it gave me claustrophobic vibes like the first one. You don’t have to read the first book to enjoy this one but it would help. This story is about Audrey the villages healer and Levi a British spy. He follows Evan to the village and gets captured. Audrey is one of the only ones who has faith that he is not a bad person. So she helps him escape. Adventure from the start of the book…you will love it!
A Healer’s Promise is a beautiful follow-up novel to the first in the Brides of Laurent series, A Warrior’s Heart. It is a great reminder that, in the end, the truth will set you free.
Audrey drew me in from the first book, so I was very pleased to be able to read this one, which focused in on her. She’s so gentle and kind and it makes you want to be her best friend! And Levi Masters is such a noble and upright man that you can’t help but admire him.
This was such a heartwarming story and written in a very easy-to-read style. It was like a hug, warm and uplifting. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to read it! Bravo to Ms. Beller for such a beautiful story!
Laurent is a village in the mountains, a place that we might call utopia. Strangers to their tiny community might be dangerous, seeking to do them harm. Levi Masters was a British soldier, bringing with him memories of past horrors. Could this man be trusted?
Audrey Moreau is the village healer. She has spent many hours learning from those who came before and spends her days harvesting the necessary herbs to keep the village healthy. Will she get herself into trouble by seeking to help one who is perhaps undeserving?
What a lovely story of grace, putting the past behind and learning to accept the love of God for oneself. These well-developed characters have much to show us if we just consider their circumstances and how they realized the importance of setting the Lord first. With Him at your right hand, you will not be moved.
