Don’t Miss Amy Harmon’s Newest Release!
It is Haunting, Heartwarming and Unforgettable.
From Sand and Ash is a beautifully written, poignant historical fiction novel that touches the soul. The story takes place in Italy, during WWII.
Eva Rosselli was the love of Angelo Bianco’s life. He was sent to Italy as a child after his mother died. Although he was a Catholic, he grew up with a Jewish family, the Rosselli’s. He also fell in love with their daughter, Eva.
It sickened him to see the Jewish people humiliated, robbed and murdered by the Nazi’s. Angelo became a priest to save as many Jews as possible, especially the family he grew up with and loved. Eva’s heart broke, though, when he was ordained. And as much as Angelo wanted to stay faithful to his vows, he had a difficult time resisting Eva’s affections. Her kisses soothed him, but at the same time, tortured his soul.
Amy Harmon’s writing is superb. Her story flows effortlessly from one scene to the next. She uses her talent to shine a bright light on the beautiful acts of love done by courageous souls, in the midst of Hitler’s atrocities. This book is haunting, heartwarming, magnificently written and unforgettable.
Amy Hammond is a gem of an author, and I’m so glad that I discovered her. Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for my advanced review copy of this book. I loved it.
