Good Reading! Aug 3, 2007
This was my first Tricia Goyer book, but it won't be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed reading "From Dust and Ashes." The author managed to write a compelling novel, set in an exciting background with "lots" of heart. Her characters were entirely believable as well as being a bit unpredictable. Woman Submit!

heartbreaking and very interesting!! Apr 4, 2007
This was the first book of Tricias that I have read. I now have read them all, except her newest on the spanish war. This book was insightful and heartbreaking. The facts of WW 2 were horrific. There were those who fought for freedom of those captured and this is a story of such.I really recomend this book along with the next WW 2 story Night song.

Don't miss this book! Nov 1, 2005
Inspired by true stories of a Nazi concentration camp, Tricia Goyer writes a spellbinding tale that includes history, mystery, forgiveness, and love.
In Austria, the lives of a Nazi camp guard's wife, an American GI, and two prisoners are intertwined as they deal with the effects of Hitler's plan to exterminate the Jews and their supporters. They learn that God can bring healing and new beginnings from dust and ashes.
I couldn't put down this fascinating book, and highly recommend it to everyone!
From Dust and Ashes review Sep 21, 2005
This book can really tug at your heartstrings. We are all familiar with the stories from Nazi concentration camps, but this tale delves farther into what happened in WWII's aftermath. From the point of view of an SS guard's wife, an American GI, and a former prisoner, you find yourself entrenched in the thick of rebuilding lives that will never be the same. Helene, whose husband escaped before the Americans could capture him, is faced with seeing the men, women and children that her acquaintances starved and mistreated. She has a 4-year-old daughter and a baby on the way. Her heart goes out to the Jews and other freed prisoners, as guilt pricks her conscience, and she takes in two women to feed and care for. One of them, Michaela, a Christian and preacher's daughter, is shocked to find what Helene's husband was, but is willing to share the good news with Helene. Peter, a soldier from Montana, feels responsible for the happiness and well-being of these women. He soon falls in love with one, but is faced with a bitter disappointment when she decides to follow God's call, rather than the temptation of leaving her homeland for America. He continues to help them both, after they all part ways, with his influence in the army. Helene feels trapped when her husband's plan of stealing Jewish money is made known to her. His friend and fellow SS guard thinks she holds the key to getting this wealth and will stop at nothing to get it for himself, even threatening her life and the lives of her children. Her new faith in God must give her strength to make it until the trials against the guilty Nazi party. Tricia Goyer paints a beautiful picture as the characters travel throughout post-war Europe. Her characters spoke to me about God's will for their lives and gave a hope that life can go on after such atrocities. She has kindled an interest in this era that will have me looking for more books, by her and others!
