    I just finished reading the book. I love historical fiction and this drew me into the lives of the characters. I even googled some of the places that were mentioned in the book. Good background reading for those studying WWII.We must not forget that time of history.

    Just finished "From Dust To Ashes" and found it to be a very enjoyable read. The reality of the personal and relational struggles of WW2 were intriguing. I felt at times I was there with them. I appreciate American Soldiers being properly portrayed as liberators, and good hearted. My wife started reading it and couldn't put it down. Great Book!!!!!

    I absolutely love this book! It is one of those books that you just can not put down. The story brought me to tears, yet the ending left a smile on my face. The endless power of forgiveness and God's love are shown continuously throughout this story.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Tricia Goyer
Located in: Montana, USA
Submitted: December 27, 2002

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Currently I have published over 150 articles for national publications such as Guideposts for Kids, Christian Parenting Today, and HomeLife. I am the co-author of Meal Time Moments (Focus on the Family). I have led numerous Bible Studies, and my study notes appear in the Women of Faith Study Bible. From Dust and Ashes (Moody) is my first novel. My wonderful husband, John, and I live in Montana with our three children.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  An Austrian historian had invited me and my friends into her home. It was the end of a long day of travel, and I secretly desired a hot shower and a soft bed. But it wasn't long before our host had me intrigued with her true tales of villains, prisoners, and GI heroes. I sat wide eyed as Marta described the twenty-three, American GIs who had stumbled upon the Gusen camps on May 5, 1945. It was then that the horrors of WWII became real. I went home and began researching the events concerning the liberation of these death camps. I spoke to the brave men, now in their 70's and 80's who had liberated them. I was also able to visit Austria a second time to participate in the memorial services celebrating liberation so many years prior. Fueled by memoirs, oral histories and personal interviews, I began to write. This is a story inspired by true events . . . and true heroes.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope that people will understand a little more about true heroism in W.W.II. And also that eternal liberation is available to all through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I am part of a prayer group made up of Christian authors and these wonderful women have been my inspiration. Robin Jones Gunn, Cindy McCormick Martinusen, Marlo Schalesky, Joanna Weaver, Janet McHenry, and Anne de Graff to name a few.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  My grandfather served in W.W.II. While I knew this, I never got around to asking Grandpa about his exploits. I feared broaching the subject. It was this fear of hurting him that kept me from asking. And when my grandpa passed away in 1999, his stories-his unique experiences during a crucial time in modern history-sadly died with him. A few years later, as I researched for "From Dust and Ashes," I seemed to be granted a second chance to listen. God brought into my life not one, but over twenty adopted "grandpas" to share their stories with me. These true heroes reside all over the United States. Some are retired professors, radio announcers, and professionals. Others have led a more quiet life in rural America. But what brought me to these men-and what brings them together every year-is the reunion of the founding of the 11th Armored Division. These men, now gray-headed and retired, were once the mighty soldiers of Patton's 3rd Army. And even as the 60th anniversary of the end of W.W.II nears, their memories have not faded. During our talks, many shaky chins dripped tears of remembrance. And, as I was moved by their stories, I was also inspired by the honor they deserve. These men and their deeds need not be forgotten!
