Rosemary is a herbalist, who served as a nurse during the Civil War. When the new doctor comes to town, Rosemary offers to help him, but her relationship with him is off to a rough start when she suggests natural remedies to his patients, remedies not recognized by medical experts.
But Elijah and Rosemary again but heads when a young unwed expectant mother comes to town. trouble brews and love grows.
When the Heart Heals is a stand alone tale in the Sisters of the Heart Series, while reading the first one in the series would be nice, you really don't have to read it to appreciate Rosemary's story.
There are many various twists and turns, and I loved how Elijah and Rosemary slowly became friends. There is a mystery of sorts, and plenty of great side characters and trials for Elijah and Rosemary's friendship. I loved how this book focused on Rosemary and Elijah, and the people that they helped. The characters interacted well with each other, and I liked how there was a lot going on so I was kept entertained.
Overall a sweet romantic story, that I thoroughly enjoyed. And would happily recommend :)
