Review: Love Amid the Ashes

Title: Love Amid the Ashes

Author: Mesu Andrews

Pages: 416

ISBN: 978-0-8007-3407-7

Book Description:

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.

My Thoughts:

I always wanted to read more of Dinah, Jacob’s daughter. But the Bible only mentions her name a couple of times. This book fulfilled my desire for more information of her. Mesu Andrews draws a person into the book until it feels like you are actually there with the characters. Job (from the Book of Job found in the Bible) takes Dinah to hos homeland to marry her to his oldest son, Ennon. when Job returns home the calamities start to happen.. Now Dinah has come here for nothing or so she thinks. With no man to marry her now, she wants to return home to her father’s tents. It’s almost a year later when Job is finally healed from his sickness that Dinah returns home to a supposedly sick father. She finds she has been tricked and finds a healthy father on his way to Egypt with his family. She realizes she has fallen in love with Job and can’t forget about him. Job follows her to Egypt and asked her to marry and come home with him.

Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. These words and thoughts are mine 100%.
