Katherine Demarchis is a young widow who does not grieve the dangerous husband she was forced to marry. Now she just wants to retreat to a quiet life, content to be alone. First, though, she's agreed to accompany her grandmother on a final trip, but never expects to see a man from her past.
Katherine and Jean-Michel once shared a deep love that was torn apart by forces beyond their control. Reunited now, have the years changed them too deeply to rediscover what they had? And when Jean-Michel's nightmares return with terrifying consequences, will faith be enough to heal what's been broken for so long?

MarilynCoral Springs, FLAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great series set in AlaskaMarch 15, 2018MarilynCoral Springs, FLAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This is book two in The Heart of Alaska series, however it is a stand alone book. This is the first one in the series I have read and had no trouble understanding what was going on, yet I did wonder if it was part of a series, it just really reads like one.
This book is written different than most. Yes, it centers on two main characters, yet there are many characters who play important parts in this book. Which probably help when developing a strong series. You really learn about a lot of different people all working or staying at the Curry Hotel in Alaska. Each chapter may be written with a different characters perspective, yet you know exactly whom is speaking and or thinking.
The author does a great job at her descriptions, dialogue, history and plot. There is a lot going on in this hotel. You will find heartache, forgiveness, finding God, sickness, romance and much more.
I look forward to reading more from this series.
Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Out of the AshesMarch 11, 2018Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Tracie Peterson and Kimberly Woodhouse knows how to tell a good story, and OUT OF THE ASHES is a good story. I know when I pick up a book by this dynamic duo that it will be engaging and hold my interest until the end.
I fell in love with Jean-Michel is the prologue and felt so bad for what he was experiencing. I imagine the man (if he were real) would truly suffer from PTSD. It was that bad. And while he may not remember at the time of the events, when he does it gets pretty frightening when people might not want what he knows made public knowledge.
Katherine -- I felt bad for her too. I have not married an abusive man so I cannot imagine the terror she must've felt not knowing what would set him off. I hated that he isolated her from her family and friends, but I have known men who've done that and it really drives a wedge between them for years to come. Maybe permanently.
I wanted these two to find happiness, and I really cheered for them. I also loved the vivid descriptions of Alaska penned on the pages of this book.
I received a copy of this book free. All opinions are my own.
Abby4 Stars Out Of 5Out of the AshesMarch 7, 2018AbbyQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3Out of the Ashes was an interesting book to read. The plot of the story was different, but made for a great read. I was a little disappointed by how predictable the story was in the end. The relationships between the hotel staff and the owners was wonderful and I loved how they developed that part of the story. Katherine and Jean-Michel both experienced serious trauma in their lives. I thought they found "healing" a little too easily in the book. Although God can heal the deepest of wounds, there are still side effects of experiencing such deep trauma. Overall, I thought the book was well written and let me experience Alaska. I would recommend it to friends to read for light reading.
*I received this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review*
