"Beauty For Ashes" by Dorothy Love

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Dorothy Love and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Beauty For Ashes" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

Dorothy Love’s “Beauty For Ashes” is the incredibly moving story of a young widow displaced from her life by her brother’s recent marriage. Carrie Daly could be living the “ideal” life with book shop owner, Nate Chastain, but wanderer, gambler and horseman Griff Rutledge appears to have captured the attention of the lovely lady. When Griff remains in Hickory Ridge to ride a horse in a race that may help the town regain its economic footing, Carrie seems to want a closer relationship but fears what will happen when he leaves.

Griff is running away from his father’s disappointment, his family home and his past. His mind is set on a ship bound for Australia – and freedom – but he never planned on Hickory Ridge or the widow, Carrie Daly. This incredibly engaging Christian romance is a terrific weekend read. This clean entertainment will entertain, encourage and inspire.
