Love Amid the Ashes

Disclaimer:  This book was provided to me by Baker publishing to read and review.  In no way have they paid me to give this book a good review. The opinions expressed are just that, my opinions.


Love Amid the Ashes
by Mesu Andrews


An epic story of love and forgiveness, suffering and restoration


When her beloved grandfather Isaac dies, Dinah must follow his final command: travel to Job's household to marry his son. After Job's world comes crashing down, Dinah finds herself drawn to this great man brought low. What will she risk to fight for his survival?

Mesu Andrews weaves an emotional and stirring account of Job and Dinah. Love Amid the Ashes breathes life, romance, and passion into the classic biblical story of suffering and steadfast faith.

I don't know where to begin with this review.  This book was not at all what I was expecting it to be.   I was expecting a story that had a creative feel but that was closely in line with the Bible.  I have to tell you that after a few chapters I stopped reading it  because I was upset with the author.  But I did finish reading it! 
The Story is just that a fiction story that (you can say) takes place or continues  where the story of Job in the Bible ends ( it was all a little confusing to me excatly what time it takes place).  We don't know what took all took place in  the Book of Job.  I had to remind myself of this when I began to read it again.
It was a delightful book to read.   I was pleased with it (after I overcame my own expectations).

This book just proved to me that  you never know what is behind the cover until you began to read and get captivated by it.    I am glad that I did in fact read this book.  Take time, lose all your preconceived expectations and read it, you will be delighted.

Scripture of the Month

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
