Readers often think of Job sitting on the ash heap, his life in shambles. But how did he get there? What was Job's life like before tragedy struck? What did he think as his world came crashing down around him? And what was life like after God restored his wealth, health, and family?
Through painstaking research and a writer's creative mind, Mesu Andrews weaves an emotional and stirring account of this well-known story told through the eyes of the women who loved him. Drawing together the account of Job with those of Esau's tribe and Jacob's daughter Dinah, Love Amid the Ashes breathes life, romance, and passion into the classic biblical story of suffering and steadfast faith.
Wow! What a great read Love Amid the Ashes is! This Biblically based novel presents a very plausible retelling of the era of the Patriarchs by breathing vibrant life into sparsely told Biblical accounts. Only important, significant women are mentioned in the recounting of these early Biblical days. Dinah was one such woman. This novel uses her to weave several early Biblical stories together with what is currently understood about life in those ancient times. Having been a student of Old Testament times for many years, this reader found Love Amid the Ashes by Mesu Andrews to be a riveting, historically, and Biblically believed tale. It's extremely well researched and written! Loved it!
