"'Healing Charles' is a moving story that rivets the reader from the first paragraph to the last. Kudos to Larry Matthews for this outstanding work of fiction." Allie Povall, author of "The Time of Eddie Noel".
Here's another review from blogcritics
Healing Charles is book one. Saving Charles
is book two. Both are character stories about one man's life and his bad choices. It is also the story about a search for faith.

Charles is a backwoods Alabama boy raised in the mystical world of his grandmother, who has given him the “gift” of healing. Charles rejects the gift and sets out in search of the pleasures of the world. He finds them in California. In a powerful moment he comes to understand that pleasures of the flesh do not fulfill him. His life is back in the mountains. Charles meets Johnny, a young singer/songwriter, and the two come east to work as disc jockeys in a small Virginia mountain town. There Charles embraces his gift of healing, Johnny sings his songs, and the two become the most famous young men in America in the early 1960s. Charles finds faith and love with a girl who once knew the healing power of his hands and the two create a place of grace and comfort for thousands who come to Paradise Mountain. Healing Charles is a story of faith and the power of miracles.
