Product Description

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.

    This book made Job human. In the Bible, we only read such a small portion of Job's life. Although it is fictional, it helps set the tone for what could have happened. It brings the characters in the Bible alive. We weren't there and don't know what happened, but this book made the people someone relate-able.

    I really liked the book and I always enjoy Mesu Andrews. I love the family tree at the beginning of her books. I always enjoy reading about the research she has done and how she ties everything together.

    In Love Amid the Ashes Mesu Andrews brings the story of Job to life. She offers plausible explanations for the events depicted in the story of Job. Well-developed characters and realistic plot draw readers into the story. Research provides a solid foundation for the story, in the background without distracting the reader's attention. I'm reading this on a mobile device, making it awkward to refer to the character chart at the beginning of the book, which I'm sure would be very helpful for keeping everyone straight. I started reading this when I had quite a few other things going on and now I'm making time every day to read another portion of this fascinating story. I picked this book up on a free Kindle promotion, and now I'll be trying to track down the next title in the series!

    Love amid the ashes is a fictional story of Diana, Jacobls daughter and her life after her encounter with Shechem, the prince of the Hivite. It also intertwines with the story of Job.

    The story opens when Job decides to ask Jacob for Diana's hand in marriage for one of his younger son's. Jacob agrees, but Diana wants nothing but to stay in her father's camp and tend the sick. Job vows not to force the young Diana, but waits patiently for her come with him willingly. However just when Job and Diana return to Job's home tragedy strikes. Job's children are all killed, all his wealth taken, and finally his health begins to fail. Through it all Diana remains at Job's side when all others flee. She encourages him and uses her knowledge of healing herbs to help Job's illness. It was a true picture of unconditional love.

    I admit I'm not very familiar with the book of Job, but I did like that I could go to Job in the bible and follow along with this story and that Job and Jacob were contemporarys. The pictures that the author paints about the people and the buildings and the way of life were truly brilliant. It took my breath away when Job offers a sacrifice to God on the behalf of Diana for her to be cleansed.

    The only problem that I had with this book the part in the beginning where the author chose to make Diane and Shechem relationship a love story and that Diana was shamed by marring a Hivite, but scripture (gen 34:2) says that he took her by force.

    I also had a hard time getting through the last third of the book. It just seemed to slow down and drag for me.

    Overall though it was a delightful book, and it could inspire someone to study the book of Job. I would recommend it.

    Love Amid the Ashes is a well-researched look into the life of Job. Mesu Andrews stays true to the story of Job using her meticulous research to write a story full of life, romance and passion. What was Jobs life like before he lost everything? How did Jobs wife react to the tragedy that struck her family? As with other books Ive read of Mesus, she makes reading Biblical fiction fun introducing characters that add to the story. If youve read the book of Job and wondered how things might have been, I recommend reading Love Amid the Ashes! A definite must-read!
