Title: Anna’s healing anna

Author: Vanetta Chapman

Publisher: Harvest House

Publication Date: October, 2015

Format: Paperback

Length: 352 pages


Left partially paralyzed in a wheelchair, Anna’s friends, Chloe Roberts and Jacob Graber and her grandmother Ruth are the anchors that keep her tethered to her faith and sanity as she comes to grips with her disability.

But it seems that just as she has accepted her situation, Anna is inexplicably and totally healed. Just as she had questions when she was confined to her wheelchair, Anna is now asking why? how? how long will it last? And the notoriety and attention she and her community are receiving is so unwanted, so counter to the teachings of her people, the Amish.

Whether you believe in miraculous healings or not, Anna’s healing will cause you to consider your beliefs and reflect on this miracle. Was it truly from God? Some wonder if Anna was ever actually paralyzed. The book is very thought provoking and insightful.

Fans of Amish fiction will be eager to read this first in Chapman’s series but will find it is deeper and contains more meat than some Amish fare.
