Taras Healing, first published in 1951, is Janice Holt Giles's third novel and the last of her Kentucky Mountain trilogy, which includes The Enduring Hills and Miss Willie. Readers will find themselves on Piney Ridge again with Hod and Mary Pierce and their neighbors. This is the story of Tara Cochrane, who had been Hod's captain during World War II.
