Healing Love ... By Jennifer Slattery

A news anchor intern has it all planned out, and love isn't on the agenda.

Brooke Endress is on the cusp of her lifelong dream when her younger sister persuades her to chaperone a mission trip to El Salvador. Packing enough hand sanitizer and bug spray to single-handedly wipe out malaria, she embarks on what she hopes will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

But Brooke is blindsided by the desperation for hope and love she sees in the eyes of the orphans she encounters. And no less by the connection she feels with her handsome translator. As newfound passion blooms, Brooke wrestles with its implications for her career dreams.

Ubaldo Chavez, teacher and translator, knows the struggle that comes with generational poverty. But he found the way out – education – and is determined to help his students rise above.

When he agrees to translate for a mission team from the United States he expects to encounter a bunch of "missional tourists" full of empty promises. Yet an American news anchor defies his expectations, and he finds himself falling in love. But what does he have to offer someone with everything?
Brook Endress was in search for fresh ideas to set her apart at the news station, but all her efforts were set aside as God stepped in with His own plan. Healing Love by Jennifer Slattery weaves a few different story lines in such a way that doesn't let you put this novel down.
Two countries that are extremely different hosted the events of several lives, which kept me wondering what could God make of all this? Slattery dug deep with my emotions of the unique cultural differences that I was not familiar with, but admire those who step forth in God's direction even though there could be a painful outcome. The lives of children and the depth of love makes this novel a must read.

Love conquers all...
I think cultural differences don't stop people from falling in love or staying together if the connection is strong.
This books sounds like a great romance!
