I enjoyed reading Healing Stone by Brock Booher, set in 1955 Cumberland County, Kentucky. The author brought the picture of this time and place to life in the pages of this book.

Ezekiel Stone Molony, abandoned in a graveyard as a baby. Found by the sheriff, crying with with a note to give him to the family of Billy & Ada Molony. He doesn't know any more about his birth parents.

Stone, a 17 year old boy finds he has the gift to heal after he runs over his his dog Rusty with the mowing machine on the tractor.

As he digs into his past, trying to learn who his birth parents are and where does the gift of healing come from, he witnesses corruption, racism, and violence. Leading a somewhat sheltered life up to this point he learns a lot about the these things. Full of suspense, mystery, some spirituality, fiction with some history thrown in. I cried at some parts, made me really think at other parts, as to how I would handle such a situation.

This was a book I didn't want to put down until finished, then was disappointed that I had came to the end.

I highly recommend this book to all my family and friends looking for an interesting suspenseful read. ( )

An interesting tale of a teen farm boy who suddenly realizes he has dramatic healing powers. The book is situated in the Bible-Belt South, probably in the 50's. It deals with race issues in this time period. I like the book, though it is quite long for the modern high school student. Purchase.

Healing Stone does not feel like a debut book. I like the characters, they were a good mix. They had good and bad sides. Dealt with real issues that were part of history. It engaged my emotions, yes I cried in a few places. It had me rooting for some of the characters to be healed. Some decisions made me think what would I do? I did figure out early who the character that was doing the bad stuff was.

The setting was small town Kentucky. Where Stone Molony was raised on a farm. Close by was also the smaller poorer place where the blacks lived.

Stone Molony was abandoned in a graveyard and a note said give him to this farmer & his wife, Billy and Ada Molony. Stone worked hard on the farm, fished, was a regular teenager till one day he ran over his dog with the tractor. He found he had a gift of healing he did not know why or how it worked.

Ida and Billy Molony had one son and wanted more, but could not. They took stone in and treated him like his older brother Leck.
They were farmers.

Leck went to Korea and came home with metal still in him and on crutches. He was changed by war.

Billy wanted to keep it a secret that Stone could heal anyone. Ida wanted Leck healed. Stone did not know why he could heal some and not others.

This was a time when blacks could not drink out of same water fountains as the whites. Had to ride in the back of buses. Treated so poorly. Most did not have any education because they could not go to same school as whites.

Wonnie's family business was making moonshine. She just came home from living in the city so she could get some education. She wanted to change things. She wanted to sit down by Stone at the theater not up in black only seats.

Wonnie opened Stone eyes and mind to ask why should she have too. Also opened my eyes too how bad and different things were.

Stone had to find his courage, figure out who to heal and how too. He was asking some hard questions about the people around him, his past and choices he had to make.

This is a clean read, does deal with some real bad conditions and evil people, and history coming alive for me.

I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it. ( )
