    It is refreshing to be able to welcome a character back like Kane. He is such a great character with a big heart. He seems to always be the guy to defend his buddies without thought to his own well being. After a wrong desicion in a bar leads to his arrest, he gets suspended from his job at the fire station for a few days. When he receives a call from his sister that their mom is not doing well, he makes a trip to go visit her. Kane’s mom is a very faithful woman who knows when she dies she will be in heaven , but Kane still has some unbelief.Kane’s mom suggests that he let his nephew Christopher, stay with him for a few days, so his sister can spend some time with her. Christopher is all for some bonding time with his uncle. They head out to the park to play baseball when an unexpected power outage happens. We find Kane meeting a lovey young woman named Kristen. She is very active in her church and has a son . Is this the woman who might help Kane find his way back to God? As the story progresses the author does a great job of showing us how we have to wait on God’s perfect timing for things to happen. We have all had that urge to move ahead of God, but find ourselves making things worse.Kane finds himself dealing with a tragedy that overwhelms him and he turns to alcohol to help him deal with it. He tries to find comfort in drinking, but the pain is still there. Who will be able to reach Kane and help him turn his life around? Can he surrender to God or stay on the destructive path his life is headed? There is a secret that his mom has been hiding for a very long time . Can this secret lead to an out of control Kane, or will he finally trust God ?The story is packed with characters who lose their faith and try to find their way home with trails along the way. It’s not always easy when we find ourselves in desperation, but God is always there with open arms waiting for us. I love reading how Kane tries to do things as the world would, but as he slowly changes the transformation is very inspiring. One of the hardest things we all struggle with is forgiveness. The author does a powerful job of showing how forgiveness can set you free and help you heal from past hurts. I always look forward to reading books from this author, because the message within each story is encouraging to everyone. We have heard the saying that “people never change.” but as you read this book you realize how untrue that statement is. We can all change but we alone are the only one who can make that decision. Kane is a great character to read and follow as he looks for help to change his old habits and be a better person. I look forward to the next book in this outstanding series.I received a copy of this book from Librarything for an honest review.I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

    This is book is a follow up to the first book in the series Amongst the Flames and tells the story of Kane from the fire station and follows his struggles in dealing with grief and finding his way to rekindling his walk with God. It can be read as a standalone but reading the first book in the series will give background to the characters. I enjoyed this one as much as I did the first book in the series, and the author has done another wonderful job through the story of telling how God can bring beauty and hope out of the ashes. I was given a copy of this book in return for an honest review, and it is another from this author that I definitely recommend.

    Out of the Ashes is an inspirational book that is a must read for firefighters that shows us God’s love and redemption.This is the story of Kane’s journey back to God after his mother’s death.I loved all the main characters and how each one had their own unique walk to the Lord.The theme of this book is” from out of the ashes God created beauty and exchanged our pain for hope.”A copy of this book was given in exchange for an honest review.

  7. Scott Allnatt

    Out is a fast paced story that gets your attention quickly and keeps it. I had difficulty putting it down. It’s a very quick read. I started it this morning. I’ve done other things, like normal and it’s not quite bedtime and I finished the book.

  8. Kindle Customer

    The really enjoyed this book. After reading the first book, I wasn’t sure I would like this book, knowing it was about Kane ( He was kind of a jerk in the first book.) But I loved this book. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves Christian fiction.

    Author T.K. Chapin has already introduced us to bad boy firefighter, Kane in Amongst the Flames (book one of Embers and Ashes Series) and now we learn more about him…..his family, his life struggles and if a relationship with God can help him through it all. The road of life for Kane winds all over touching so many areas, I’m sure everyone will be able to relate to some of the struggles Kane goes through, and see how they intersect with others…and realize…it’s best said by Chapin, “That’s the power of God. He won’t stop you from being sad, but He can give you hope. And He can give you joy.” This is yet another fantastic Christian Romance that I have thoroughly enjoyed by this author! Excited for the next book in this series!!
