Publisher 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.

Wonderful read

The Book of Job has always been my favorite Old Testament book and Mesu brought it to life. Always enjoy her books. Very well written.

Love Amid The Ashes

Audio book: Job is a difficult one to write about. I have a hard time reading it in the Bible every year, but understand more each year. I think this book helped me visualize even more the story of Job. I like the narrator chosen for the audio book. I definitely recommend this book. I received an audio copy of this book from the author. All views stated are my own.

Give it a Try!

I listened to the audiobook of Love Amid the Ashes. I think listening to it took me on a little different journey than if I had just read it. For me it was an emotional book and felt like I was invested in the characters. I never would have thought about Dinah being Job’s wife but the author did lots of research and at the end she tells us why and what she found when she decided to write this book the way she did. Remember it is fiction of a real event.
Of course anyone that knows anything about the Bible has heard of Job, but to listen to the story told to you in detail was awesome. Such a great story of how God is faithful to His children. Job being so downcast after losing everything but yet still holding on to God is a story I can hear over and over again. Dinah’s part in this book really held my attention too and how Job would tell her about God. There were many details and characters that I loved. Loss, love and redemption are all part of this book. I think it’s written in a powerful way. Mrs Andrews knows how to get you involved in the characters.
If you have never read/listened to Mesu Andrew books do yourself a favor and get one if you like Biblical Fiction at all.
I received the audiobook from justreadtours and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
