A huge thank you to Tyndale House for giving me a free book to review. I love that I get these opportunities!
from her ex, Tandi Jo Reese finds
refuge in a deserted caregiver’s cottage on Hatteras Island. Everyone
assumes that she’s there to take care of the main house, and she is
supported and befriended by the locals. Things are especially difficult
for Tandi, since
she has two children. Tandi then discovers a heritage left
behind by the deceased owner in prayer boxes. She is inspired by the
owners faith and life. Her road of faith has been hard between choosing
the wrong man and a daughter the is in a rebellious stage. Wingate,
takes the story of ashes to beauty to a new level.
Lisa Wingate is such a wonderful author. She constantly has this ability to tug at the heart strings and give you multiple ways to connect with the characters. Tandi (the main character) works through so many hardships, trials, and challenges throughout this book --- it is a beautiful story of reaching that point in your life where you come to a place where something has to give. The beauty of growth and forgiveness....showing how your past can truly become your future and finding love in the most unlikely places...learning how much your children should be in the front of your life and not the back....I was taken all across the board of life in this story and would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good read!
