‘Healer’ by Linda Windsor – Information and Interview

Buzz this

One of the most prolific and successful authors in the Christian book genre is Linda Windsor. Her latest novel is ‘Healer,’ Book One in The Brides of Alba series.

Here is the synopsis of this book:

A Prophecy Launches This Family Saga of Strife and Superstition on Arthurian Scotland and of the Healer Whose Love and Faith are Its Only Hope.
Her mother’s dying prophecy to the chieftain Tarlach O’Byrne sentenced Brenna of Gowrys to twenty years of hiding. Twenty years of being hunted – by the O’Byrnes, who fear the prophecy, and by her kinsmen, who expect her to lead them against their oppressors. But Brenna is a trained and gifted healer, not a warrior queen, so she lives alone in the wilderness with only her pet wolf for company. When she rescues a man badly wounded from an ambush, she believes he may be the answer to her deep loneliness. Healing him comes as easy as loving him. But can their love overcome years of bitterness and greed…and bring peace and renewed faith to the shattered kingdom?

Here is the book trailer for this fascinating novel (the music alone would make me want to read it!):

Here is the biography of this author:

Linda Windsor is the best-selling, award-winning author of twenty-nine novels in both the CBA and ABA markets, with an estimated million books in print. A former professional musician, Linda speaks often (and sometimes sings) for writing and/or faith seminars. Her recent work includes the early Celtic Fires of Gleannmara trilogy. She makes her home on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and prays for courage and strength to meet the needs of today’s readers with page-turning stories that entertain, teach, and inspire.

I wanted to share with you the heart of the author, and to show how she wants to reach younger readers with the saving truth of Jesus Christ:

As high school and college students head back to classes this fall, they will have the opportunity to meet new friends, experience new things and learn more about the world outside familiar surroundings. It is likely these young adults will face situations they may not know how to deal with, especially when it comes to the appeal of New Age thinking. From Wicca and Ouija to Goth and Celtic, teens and young adults are surrounded by the desire for a spiritual connection.
Helping young people drawn in by this way of thinking is a cause near and dear to author Linda Windsor’s heart. Windsor’s research for her series of early Celtic novels resulted in a personal mission to provide Christians with an effective witness to reach their New Age and unbelieving family and friends. This goal continues with her latest release Healer, which reveals early church history, much of which has been lost or neglected due to intentional and/or inadvertent error by its chroniclers. The knowledge of early church history enabled Linda to reach her daughter, who became involved in Wicca after being stalked and assaulted in college, and blaming the God of her childhood faith.

Linda Windsor was recently interviewed on the ER program on the online radio station,, focusing on New Age appeal and how to combat it.’s mission is to connect with teens and college students to develop relationships and better understand what issues their listeners are facing.

“Linda Windsor has her finger on the pulse of this generation. Her research and ability to create a world of relevance to her teen audience gives believers hope that there is someone providing answers to students dabbling in magic, darkness and the prison cell of witchcraft,” says Clinton Faupel, Executive Director of and host of ER. and Windsor are working together on other ways to reach out to young people, including directing youth counselors to the author's website for more information about Healer and speaking opportunities.

Windsor is convinced that, had her daughter known the struggle and witness of the early Christians beyond the apostles’ time and before Christianity earned a black name in the Crusades and Inquisition, she could not have been swayed from her early faith. Nor would Linda herself have been lured away from her faith in Christ in college by a liberal agenda. “Healer includes information about the church’s origins, beliefs and how Christianity won over the pagan world when the sword could not,” says Windsor. “This history can help prepare our youth from being seduced by New Age philosophy and prepare Christians to witness to New Age believers as it helped me witness to my daughter when she wouldn't hear Scripture.”

“So often, the kids don’t know any better and most Christians don't know how to reach them except via means the kids won’t accept,” Windsor concludes.
