Pepper Basham's thorn healer is a historical romance. It is the third book in the "Penned In Time" series, but can be read as a separate book. However, I would recommend reading the previous books first to enjoy them to the fullest. In the last year of the First World War, fact and fiction play in this epic reading.

There is the topic of trust – trust in God and trust in people. An extraterrestrial internship camp in the small American town is met with fear and dislike. People distrust the Germans because of their war experience. Prejudices are common, but not everyone should be tared with the same brush.

Jessica is a front nurse who has a hard time trusting God after all she's seen. "How can you see what's happening and so quiet?" It focuses on people and not on God. Her heart longs to see God, but he seems to be absent. "If you're in the middle of this mess, show me."

War creates bitterness. Bitterness eats away a person. "The only thing that bitterness does is change you, not him." Bitterness must be given to God. Life must be given to God and committed to his plans.

The people who returned from the war have changed. They had seen things they couldn't "overlook". They bore the scars of the fight. “The war left many scars. Unseen. "Not all scars were visible. Many returned with mental scars. Now we know it as PTSD, but then it was called shell shock. People were broken, but" Nothing is broken that cannot be restored. "God is the god of restoration. In him all things can be made new.

The novel contains a broken chapel. This can be seen as a motive for broken life. Pieces have to be put together again. Each broken piece is a treasure, the beauty of which is restored when it is combined with other broken pieces.

The theme of the novel is to look after widows and orphans. There are some really adorable children in the novel. The young Judas was particularly charming with his childlike observations.

This is a beautiful novel by Pepper Basham and what a pleasure reading it was. My feelings were twisted, especially towards the end, when I literally gasped for breath. The thorn healer is a poignant read that undoubtedly gives God the glory for his unshakable loyalty.

I got this book for free. A positive rating was not required and all views expressed are my own.
