Beauty for Ashes by Dorothy Love

Carrie Daly lost both her parents at a young age, and has recently lost her husband to the Civil War. All she has left is her brother Henry and he's about to be married to Mary who has to undisciplined young sons. After one last argument with Mary, Carrie leaves home to strike out on her own. Soon she discovers that the new-comer, Griff Rutledge, makes her heart flutter more than her intended ever could. When forced to return home Carrie learns to love Marry as the two weather a lose together. But can Carrie learn to give everything to God in hopes of happiness with Griff?

This book takes place during the great depression and is a testament to how God can help you over come lose and heart ache. I was expecting a love story when I started reading this book, but that's not what this story is about. Its about surrendering everything to God and trusting Him unfailingly. I enjoyed reading this book and hope that I may read the other books in this series. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a calm well written story with a great message.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from BookSneeze.
