What Heals the Heart by Karen A Wyle Review & Giveaway

What Heals the Heart 
Cowbird Creek Book 1
by Karen A. Wyle 
Genre: Western Historical Romance 


Joshua Gibbs survived the Civil War, building on his wartime experiences to become a small town doctor. And if he wakes from nightmares more often than he would like, only his dog Major is there to know it.

Then two newcomers arrive in Cowbird Creek: Clara Brook, a plain-speaking and yet enigmatic farmer’s daughter, and Freida Blum, an elderly Jewish widow from New York. Freida knows just what Joshua needs: a bride. But it shouldn’t be Clara Brook!

Joshua tries everything he can think of to discourage Freida’s efforts, including a wager: if he can find Freida a husband, she’ll stop trying to find him a wife. Will either matchmaker succeed? Or is it Clara, despite her own scars, who can heal the doctor’s troubled heart?


I'll admit, I haven't quite finished this book but I'm loving every minute of it! I can't wait to put the kids in bed tonight so I can get my face mask and my phone and finish the adventure. I love how the characters in this story are 100% human. I can't help but smile at sweet Clara. I might come update this after I finish, if I don't know it was good and that you should  go grab yourself a copy asap!




Karen A. Wyle was born a Connecticut Yankee, but eventually settled in Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University. She now considers herself a Hoosier. Wyle's childhood ambition was to be the youngest ever published novelist. While writing her first novel at age 10, she was mortified to learn that some British upstart had beaten her to the goal at age 9.

Wyle is an appellate attorney, photographer, political junkie, and mother of two daughters. Her voice is the product of almost five decades of reading both literary and genre fiction. It is no doubt also influenced, although she hopes not fatally tainted, by her years of law practice. Her personal history has led her to focus on often-intertwined themes of family, communication, the impossibility of controlling events, and the persistence of unfinished business.

  1. Thanks for hosting the tour, and I'm so glad you're enjoying the book! (I'll be writing the rough draft of Book Two during November, as part of National Novel Writing Month.)

    I'd be happy to answer any questions about the book, my other books, or my writing process.

    1. Thank you! I love it also, and am VERY grateful to Kelly Martin of KAM Design for her patience and perseverance (both required due to my stubborn refusal to see what was best for this cover until nearly the last minute).
