Sixth-century Scotland -- in the time of Arthur....

First in The Brides of Alba Series, Healer gifts readers with the story of Brenna of Gowrys, a woman orphaned during a twenty-year blood feud and destined to spend her life in hiding with only her wolf and her faith in God as companions. Brenna flees as much from her mother's dying prophecy as she does from the clan that seeks her life amid the lonely hills of Scotland. When a stranger is left to die surrounded by the carnage of a nearby ambush, Brenna rescues him from certain death. However, the stranger's delirious rants leave her to wonder if his spirit will survive the darkness that enshrouds him.

Brenna's life is trapped between an enemy clan that wants her dead and her own clan who is seeking a warrior queen to lead them to military victory over their oppressors. The stranger who enters her life makes her believe that she has found the answer to her deep loneliness. The more she learns of her wounded guest, the more she is left to wonder how she is expected to fulfill the strange destiny prophesied by her mother those many years ago. How can she possibly "bring a peace beyond the ken of [her enemy's] wicked soul"? Unknown to her, the wandering mercenary to whom she administers her healing finds that his own heart is softened toward Brenna. The relationship that grows between them will provide answers that both of them seek.
