A HEALING TOUCH By LIZ ARNOLD Doctor Hilliard: Medicine Woman. Snakebites or smallpox, saving people, including herself, is what Molly Hilliard does best, and she intends on being a doctor in the Northwest Territory, except he guide is causing all sorts of problems of the heart. In post-revolutionary America, Molly Hilliard wants to be more than an herbal healer, and she answers the lure of adventure on the Ohio River and journeys to the Northwest Territory seeking the freedom to set up a medical practice. Along the way, she tries to hire Romney Applewood as a guide, but he is going the opposite direction. After ten years as a captive of the Delaware Indians, Romney wants to get as far east as possible to forget his past and avoid the bounty on his head for taking part in raids upon settlers’ homes. Something about the way she sacrifices herself to heal others, and something about the way he endures the difficulties he encounters because of his tormented past, links them in more than their quest as they blaze new trails in their lives and on America’s frontier.
ABOUT AUTHOR Liz Arnold
I wrote my first drama around age ten in which a romance plot figured prominently. It was a western about a young woman whose father had been killed by bandits, and the local town banker offered to marry her to “save the ranch.” (I was ten years-old when I wrote this remember!) What the heroine didn’t know was that the banker had paid the bandits to kill her father so the bank could foreclose on the prosperous ranch. Today, my heroines make their own choices with a strong, yet flawed hero alongside who works to quell his own demons whatever they may be. Together they learn that love conquers many problems all while being set against the backdrop of exciting times in American history. I teach college English online part-time. I have an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. For relaxing and fun I like to practice yoga, walk, and grow herbs. I am a member of several local and national writing organizations and won “First Book 2020” from Northeast Ohio Romance Writers of America.
