What reading level is The Healing book?
To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:

Polly said with contempt. “Go see how she needs you now.”
The statement seized the girl’s heart. “Why you say that? You have done something!”
Polly’s eyes smoldered. Her voice was barely audible and came from down low in her throat. “The water you despise will be the water that drowns you.”
“Choose for the people, Granada, and God will be on your side. Choose for yourself and you’ll be walking alone.”
The words had the sound of a curse. The girl fought harder to get free.
“See for yours
...elf then.” Polly released Granada’s arm.
The girl fled from the hospital in her shimmy and bare feet. She ran straight to the cookhouse, charged up the steps and through the door. Old Silas sat alone at the table, his cup of coffee before him.
“Where’s the mistress at?” she cried, sick with urgency.
Silas didn’t look up at once. He sloshed some coffee from his tin cup into a chipped saucer, brought it up to his lips with trembling hands, and cooled it with his breath.

The Healing is about the life of a woman who was born into slavery and lived past slavery into her nineties and the hardships of survival for her and the people around her and the learning about oneself through the people in your life.
Books about slavery are hard to read but this one has a well-written story and characters who were not one dimensional or stereotypes. For me it was a compelling read.

I absolutely love this book. I was shocked to realize it was written by a white man. He did his homework and I was captivated by the characters in all of their circumstance and ignorance of that 'freedom' meant. Really shows how brutal the industry of slavery was. The 'master' calling his brutality scientific was incredible. His arrogance led to tragedy in his family too. I love how it ended!
