Investigative reporter Joshua Miller has turned his back on life. Since cancer claimed his wife, he can't bring himself to write another story. Then he hears about a fascinating woman who piques his curiosity.

After being struck by lightning, Sarah Reid finds herself with a gift... and a curse. She can heal the sick and dying. She soon realizes that along with the special gift also comes danger to her own life. Feeling responsible for the death of her best friend, Sarah reasons that perhaps she has received the gift to make amends, no matter the personal cost.

Neither expects sparks to fly when they meet. Sarah discourages Josh's persistence in investigating her while he fights his attraction, refusing to acknowledge that she can truly save people. Can Sarah break through Josh's stubborn cynicism and show him that miracles really can come true by leading him back to love?

Faith of the Heart is book four in the Damaged Heroes series by Sandy James. This book has been re-released the end of June. This book was unique to me. I don’t think I’ve ever read about someone that can heal the sick. And I knew right from the start that Sarah Reid was the real deal. Sarah led the usual life of a teenager, maybe a bit on the wild side. She and her best friend, Charlie, were constant companions. Until an accident took Charlie’s life and Sarah blamed herself. Not long after that, a freak bolt of lightening struck Sarah which left her with the ability to heal others. She could literally absorb the illness into herself and heal them. But then she would collapse for hours in a sort of deep sleep. She was healing people daily, the sickest of the sick would seek her out. She somehow felt this was her way of paying for the death of her friend, no matter the cost to her own health. Joshua Miller was a journalist and had a thirteen year old daughter, Elizabeth. A little over a year ago, Josh lost the love of his life, his wife, to cancer. He hasn’t been able to let go of his grief and hasn’t written a word since her loss. But when Josh hears about a woman who supposedly can heal the sick and he is asked to do a story on her, he can’t resist the opportunity to reveal a fraud. When Josh and Sarah first meet, Josh is surprised at the instant urge to protect this woman, even if she was a thief, praying on innocent people who are desperate. But the more time they spend together, Josh realizes that her gift is real. But more importantly, he witnesses the toll it is taking on her. If she continues on as she is, she won’t survive much longer. It’s up to him and his daughter to save Sarah from herself. “Sarah had reached him when he’d thought he had nothing left inside him to reach.” Josh and Sarah soon fall in love. For Sarah, it is her first real love, and for Josh, it is a renewal of life. Sarah didn’t heal him physically but she healed his heart. Now he just has to find a way to convince her to love herself as much as he loves her. That she doesn’t have to save everyone. “Each time they touched, Sarah felt a rightness descend on her she’d never felt in her life. A feeling that was so strong, she could pretend that it was real and wouldn’t end soon. That she wouldn’t go back to her old life, to healing. That she would always be with Joshua.” But Josh and Sarah’s happily ever after is not so easily won. A mistake causes Sarah to doubt every single thing Josh has said to her. Josh tries everything he can think of to find a way to convince her of his love but she’ll have none of it. This was such a sweet story, of the healing power of love, of the power of the unknown. Why was Sarah chosen to have this gift? And a gift so easily given can also be easily taken away. Josh and Sarah both deserved happiness. Will they trust in themselves and each other to accept the love they each have to offer? I look forward to the last book in this series, Twist of Fate.

I had a bit of trouble getting into this story to begin with. I hate to read or hear about people taking advantage of or using others. Makes me sick inside. It wasn't too long into it though and it started to turn around and the actual story came out. And what a story it was. I liked the twist and turns throughout. Wish we knew if gift came back after having b a by though.
