The Healer of Briarwood
Will be available in Paperback, E-book, & Large Print
Historical Romantic Western
COMING DECEMBER 2020
A man with a healer’s touch. A woman with a healer’s heart.
Doctor Finnegan Brody tends his patients, keeps to himself, and vividly remembers the heartaches and trials from the Civil War and why he devoted his life to healing. He watches the townspeople live their lives, loving and laboring alongside one another, and wonders if one day he will give a woman as much time and dedication as he gives the people of Briarwood.
Katharine Kiely has a deep-rooted stubbornness to never give up, even if it means leaving behind her comfortable life by the sea to protect her father’s health and help expand his empire. When she finally arrives in Briarwood to convince the Gallaghers a spur line should cross their land, nothing goes as she expected.
Finn, with his knowledge of healing the people, and Katharine, who learns how to heal with her heart, join together as the townsfolk of Briarwood face challenges and choices that could alter their way of life forever.
Welcome to Briarwood and Hawk’s Peak, where friendship, love, and hope conquer overwhelming odds.
A Note from MK
The Gallaghers and the wonderful townsfolk of Briarwood are my family, and it brings us tremendous joy every time we can welcome friends, old and new, into our clan. We have come a long way since Gallagher’s Pride, and have shared many wonderful adventures, from shootouts and kidnappings to second chances in love and life.
THE HEALER OF BRIARWOOD highlights the best and worst of humankind, and through it all, it is the hope of a better tomorrow and the love of family and friends that reminds us how precious and joyful life can be, even during the darkest of times
I have written this book to stand on its own. You will meet previous characters and read mention of events from the first six Montana Gallagher books. They are here to enhance Brody and Katharine’s story, for neither would have his or her own tale without those who came before.
I hope you enjoy reading this romantic western adventure as much as I did writing it, and whether you are here for the first time or returning to Briarwood and Hawk’s Peak, the Gallaghers and I thank you for joining us on the journey.
Be well, be kind, and stay bookish!
