Review: Out of the Ruins by Karen Barnett


About the book:
“God, save her. I’ll do anything. Just make her better. And You’d better be listening, God, because if You dare take her away . . . I’ll never speak to You again.”

Abby Fischer doesn’t know if God will answer her prayer for her dying sister. She doesn’t know if miracles really happen. And she certainly doesn’t know if the handsome Dr. Robert King, with his risky experimental treatment, is the one to remedy her doubts.

When tragedy strikes and the mighty San Francisco earthquake shatters what is left of her heart, Abby wonders if God will hear her as she flees alone through burning streets. What will it take to show her that the One she doesn’t want to love is the One whose love will save her? A shaky prayer. A shattered faith. A city in ruins. What—or who—will bring Abby back to God?

My thoughts:


Out of the Ruins was a really good read. I loved all the history in the book and how the story made me feel as if I was actually there with the characters experiencing the great San Francisco earthquake and fire. I really liked the characters and the way Abby grew throughout the story. The romance was nice, but it didn't feel like a prominent part of the story, which was actually okay with me. It was a little bit of a slow read for me, but I didn't mind that.

All in all, a great read and I recommend it to fans of inspy historical romances. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.
