The Healing Season (A Dollar for a Dream Book 3) Kindle Edition
Move to the country for $1 a week.
Dulili is suffering a people drought. Over the years more people have moved away than have arrived to stay in this old New South Wales farming town, and now only a handful of young families and elderly residents are left. The locals put a plan into action to entice newcomers: offering the town's empty houses to newcomers from anywhere in Australia. Who could resist renting a beautiful homestead for a dollar a week?
Alicia used to know exactly what her life would look like: marry her best friend, manage her home town agricultural store, and live in her grandparent's old house. But life never goes to plan, and Alicia is left with nothing more than the store to keep her going. Until a new employee walks through her door and offers a new friendship – and potentially something more.
Lachlan has spent his life running, and Dulili is just far enough away for a new start. But small towns have few secrets, and running from the past is a surefire way to guarantee no hope for a future.

I started this book as soon as it arrived on my kindle and I was drawn right into the story of the dying town of Dulili that is desperately trying to find the spark of rejuvenation. Alicia, the heroine of this story, is still grieving the death of her fiancé and Lachlan the Dollar a Week man who is hired as her assistant in the feed store, has brought with him his own set of problems as he tried to outdistance his past.
This is a tender thought provoking story of two people dealing with their own problems and learning to lean on each other and trust. It is peopled with many memorable secondary characters who add a richness to the story.
Catherine Evans', The Healing Season, was a lovely gentle and sensitive read. I found it beautifully written and very well edited and my favourite part of the book was the storyline involving Lachlan who has never learned to read, and Alicia's teaching him.
On the whole, it was just a little too gentle for me. I like a tad more of the chemistry thing in my romance and for pacing to move just a little faster, and these two (Lachlan and Alicia) for very good reasons make the decision to take their romance slow. But I'm not going to rate a book lower because it wasn't quite to my 'heat level' taste. So my five stars is for writing and story, all of which was very well done.
