Toni FGMAMTC's Reviews > From Sand and Ash
From Sand and Ash - Amy Harmon
 
Eva and Angelo grow up together in a sort of mixed family. His grandparents take him in. They live with Eva and her father. She considers his grandparents as her grandparents. Her father considers him the son he didn't have. All of these bonds are tested by the events of WWII. Eva and her father are Jewish. Hitler has control of Italy. Eva and Angelo are getting older. They find that the love they have for each other is more than just familial. Angelo's goal has always been to become a Catholic priest. His position allows him to help people (especially the Jews) more than he could otherwise, but it also means he can never marry.
 
This book is full of beauty and tragedy. It follows two people in love and the conflict and consequences of everyone's choices. It portrays the best of worst sides of human nature. Mostly it focuses on the lengths people will go to help each other. My heart hasn't felt so much in awhile. From Sand and Ash is an experience that should not be passed up. It's an epic love story that will restore your faith in humanity.

The Bird and the Sword - Amy Harmon

This story has throwback to so many fairytales, but it's definitely original. It has a poetic feel. The leads are likable. It's very easy to root for them. No one is overly perfect, and no problem is easily solved. I like how the characters question the morality of a situation. The storyline is well-weaved. For sure check it out if you're interested in romantic fantasy that falls somewhere in between Children's and Household Tales (Grimms') and Disney or maybe off to another side.

Infinity + One
Infinity + One - Amy Harmon

What a way to start off my vacation, buried inside one of Amy’s novels. Let’s jump start my heart right away. I was introduced to Bonnie. She had the world at her fingertips, she captivated everyone’s attention, her name was well-known yet Bonnie felt there was something missing. Then there was Clyde. He had lived and then some, Clyde carefully watched his world as he went about his day for he knew he had a lifetime yet to live and his past was behind him. Was it chance or fate how these two met? Bonnie had had enough of her glittery life, the night that she walked out of it. Clyde was driving his pickup along the road when he saw her alone in the fog, she was looking out into the water and he stopped and walked back to help.

I loved how this story has the wrongs and the rights mixed into it. Bonnie has the money, the talent and all the advantages to smooth all the wrongs/issues that came their way but Clyde wasn’t looking for this. Being a famous individual Bonnie could turn everything around almost instantaneously and I loved that this option was available but it wasn’t the magic wand that they wanted to use. As Bonnie and Clyde are experiencing the world together, I saw how each day was a new experience for them, a new adventure and they were capturing these moment together yet there were individuals who were trying to take that away from them. It’s was like a game to see who would win and for how long this game would last: can Bonnie and Clyde stay together and build a life together or would individuals pull them apart deeming that their worth apart is greater than it is together? I enjoyed the time these two spent together, the time they spent with others and the time they spent reflecting on their lives. I got frustrated at time with Bonnie, I wondered if she really wanted to leave her celebrity status behind with the way that she was acting. The ending of this novel was fantastic and William, he be the man. I highly recommend this novel or any of Amy Harmon’s other novels.

From Sand and Ash by Amy Harmon $1.99
From Sand and Ash - Amy Harmon

Italy, 1943—Germany occupies much of the country, placing the Jewish population in grave danger during World War II.

 

As children, Eva Rosselli and Angelo Bianco were raised like family but divided by circumstance and religion. As the years go by, the two find themselves falling in love. But the church calls to Angelo and, despite his deep feelings for Eva, he chooses the priesthood.

 

Now, more than a decade later, Angelo is a Catholic priest and Eva is a woman with nowhere to turn. With the Gestapo closing in, Angelo hides Eva within the walls of a convent, where Eva discovers she is just one of many Jews being sheltered by the Catholic Church.

 

But Eva can’t quietly hide, waiting for deliverance, while Angelo risks everything to keep her safe. With the world at war and so many in need, Angelo and Eva face trial after trial, choice after agonizing choice, until fate and fortune finally collide, leaving them with the most difficult decision of all.
