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.

Recommended read gone wrong
The Shadow of the Wind - Lucia Graves,Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Couldn't finish it. I don't think I even made it 1/4 of the way through. was turned off by the explicit sexual scenes especially considering the first involved an 11 year old. They felt gratuitous and unnecessary.

D.L. Smith

Hardcover, Large Print, 488 pages
Published April 1st 2003 by Thorndike Press (first published March 1st 2003)

(slightly delayed review, so I kept it short and sweet)

This was an enjoyable read. Set in a small town in Italy, Leo comes back to take care of his deceased father's affair, only to find very little has changed. He and a friend go back to a way to make a quick buck. I did enjoy the characters. The author does well in giving the little country Catholic Church and the town a personality of their own.
