In book two of Lynn Dove's Wounded Trilogy, Heal The Wounded, the author takes the reader once again into the lives of the families from the first book as they struggle with their own set of problems. Each teenager is still trying to cope with the death of Ronnie; they all have a healing process to go through as their faith is tested to the max. Jake's family is facing his mother's fight against cancer, while Leigh's family is displaced due to a fire. Leigh and Jake's relationship is tested. Ronnie's brother, Tim, has his own demons to face. Being bullied at school causes him to become self-destructive. There is one special character in this second book that I would like to think of as a little guardian angel: Cassidy, a five year old living with her grandmother, who seems to bring a smile to everyone in the hospital and helps bring a healing process to Tim.
As with the first book, there are many issues dealing with the teenage years and family issues. Each character fights to hold onto his faith in the midst of many upsets and trials. Not only is this a book for teens but also for adults. In today.s world, it's such a busy life that parents seem to ignore the warning signs of their teenagers. I recommend parents and child alike read this book.
Look for the final installment "Love The Wounded" in 2011.
