Tangled Ashes by Michèle Phoenix


Tangled Ashes is a work of historical fiction, which is filled with mystery, as the characters develop and the story unfolds. The author's development of the characters is excellent and they felt very real, very human. Phoenix skillfully intertwined true historical facts with incredible characters of her own, while also creating emotional attachments to the characters for the readers. I was intrigued the entire time and couldn't wait to see where the story was going.

The main character, Marshall Becker, travels to Europe to help renovate a French castle. The castle itself is a character in the story and holds its own allure. The author gives insight into the Nazi occupation of France with its hospital for the Fuhrer as an integral part of the story that lays the groundwork for a surprise conclusion.

A great story and kept me reading until the end. I recommend this book for any age. It is clean, it contains spiritual truths, and it is written with historical events in mind.

I received a this E-book from Handlebar Marketing in exchange for my review.
