Beyond the Ashes

by Karen Barnett

What a beautiful story of love and trust. Ruby is a young widow that is learning to find her way. She heads on out to work with her brother in the recently devastated San Francisco. After the 1906 fire destroyed much of the city, refugee camps and hospitals are in desperate need of help. She is determined to find her own way and not rely on a man.

Of course, once she is there she meets a Dr. that sends her heart racing! This is a beautiful story. I loved the characters. They were very relatable. There was a strange part at the end that wasn’t ever cleared up. I wish that something would have been said about it, but that is just me. I do recommend this book. It is a really great read and held my attention throughout.

Thank you, Litfuse, for this great book! As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!
