            “Reading These Healing Hills is like wrapping up in a beloved quilt and stepping back in time. Ann H. Gabhart captures a fascinating slice of Appalachian history in this tale of a mountain midwife and a soldier, bringing it to life as only a native Kentuckian can.” – Laura Frantz. “These Healing Hills is a beautifully written, heartwarming story of life in the Appalachian Mountains at the end of the Second World War.” – Amanda Cabot. Ann Gabhart is a very successful author of many novels, and was inspired to write this one by the work of the Frontier Nursing Service headquartered in Leslie County, Kentucky.
