Love Amid the Ashes is biblical fiction at its ultimate finest!!

I have always been intrigued by the story of Job and his trials and tribulations. Love Amid the Ashes has brought a well known story to life, and I am anxious to read the Bible version again to see how close this fictional account really is.

From the stunning cover graphics and right through to the very last page, I loved this story. Job's suffering was unbelievable, and yet his faith remained strong.

It is amazing how the pages of the Bible come to life in a refreshing way as they are combined with romance, truth, drama and redemption. This is great story and I highly recommend it for all readers!
