Book Review: From Sand and Ash by my favorite, Amy Harmon
This book. Good Lordy, this book.
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the author.
I just finished From Sand and Ash.
My husband just looked at me and said, “You look like you just lost your dog and found him all in the same day.”
Good God, this book is so good.
It makes you feel everything…EVERYTHAAAAANG.
I gasped a few times while reading this and freaked Mike out. The last book that made me do that was Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher.
You know a book is reaaaaal good when you have a physical reaction to it.
I love how Amy’s books are not only about people who are beautiful on the outside but people who are beautiful because of who they are, because of their struggles, what they strive to become, and how they live not only for themselves but also for those who are no longer a part of their lives and those who make life worth living.
From Sand and Ash isn’t just your typical love story…it’s an epic love story about religion, country, family and faithfulness in the human race.
In saving someone you love, you inadvertently save yourself. What a beautiful and wonderful thing it is to love and be loved so deeply that you are willing to risk everything.
I laughed, cried, cheered and swooned all over the place with this one. Just like every one of her other books, the message of never losing hope and fighting to live a good life rings loud and clear.
I can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on this one.
Angelo and Eva will remain in your hearts long after you’ve finished the book.
You run with them covered in the monstrosity of war.
You hope with them even when nothing good seems plausible.
You root for them even when everything and anything is keeping them apart.
As always, I feel the want and need to be a better person after having a Harmon experience.
This book couldn’t have come at a better time too…it will fill you with hope and love.
Give her a pen and paper and Amy Harmon can do no wrong.
You can find it here along with all of her other great books that are in my opinion, must reads.
Love you long time,
