Have You Seen the Book Video for Shards of Light by Susan Miura?

Shards of Light is in the second in the Healer series by Susan Miura. It’s a story of a gifted teen with the ability to heal others who discovers a dark secret at the convent where she’s been sent to learn more about her gift.

“With its different characters and their special focuses and its gentle exploration of a young woman’s life in flux, Shards of Light is a beautifully evocative story that stands well alone while enhancing a series. It invites readers to reflect long after Shilo’s journey through faith and secrets comes to an end.” – D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

MiracleGirl 1400x2100

Leanne Strong hates June eighth even though it’s supposed to a day for celebration.  Fifteen years ago on that date, baby Leanne was purported to be miraculously healed of a spinal cord defect after her mother prayed to a religious mystic who was later elevated to sainthood. Since Leanne’s unexplained cure, thousands of people gather in her small town every year to celebrate her miracle—a miracle she doesn’t remember but still accepts as real—most of the time.

When teen pitching phenom Braeden Dalisay moves into the house across the street from Leanne, he harbors a chip on his shoulder even larger than his athletic talent. Forced to spend the summer in the same law office, he and Leanne carry on a working relationship that vacillates between stormy and silent. After Leanne finds out that Braeden’s sister, Emeline, recently passed away, the reason for his behavior becomes clear. Emeline Dalisay was a girl who didn’t get a miracle.

Time softens Braeden’s anger, and he and Leanne eventually draw closer. But when he and his family are hit with another traumatic event, he pulls away, the unfairness of life a deep wound. Leanne wants to help Braeden and his family heal as much as she wants a relationship with him. More than that, she wants a miracle for Braeden.
