Beauty For Ashes is a series of stories that witnesses true love lifting the helpless and the hopeless from the dark reaches of despair and lifting them to the heights of joy. Each story followed the journey of one courageous lady to rich fulfillment on the Frontier plains.
These four seasonal shorts open a window on their lives after their arrival and vindication. Every story here can be read and enjoyed as a standalone, and all are written with one intent – to bless the reader with joy! Nothing more, nothing less. 🙂
Catherine is known as the Medicine Mother and has found her place alongside her doctor husband as a worthy nurse and mother. She considers herself the most blessed of women, and wanting nothing. But William has a special Christmas and New Year surprise for her that bring complete joy to her heart.
Clarissa’s journey was a long and painful one, but her experiences have made her one of the most compassionate people you could ever hope to meet. Together with her husband Maurice they deliver two babies just in time for Christmas – but not the kind of babies you may be thinking about. A truly amazing story of how those who have been comforted can comfort others.
Clementina Ash lost everything in order to find true love on the Western frontier. But her heart still cannot accept that someone could love her so fully and selflessly as Grover, her husband, claims to. A mysterious sickness exasperates the situation, but leads to a delightful Christmas surprise that will change Clementina and Grover’s lives forever!
Despite a heartbreaking journey to happiness, Ellie now finds herself wealthy beyond her wildest dreams. Seeking to honor the name of her late first husband she dreams up a scheme to help war widows and veterans that rallies her whole community that restores and respects countless war-torn lives, giving them the dignity and future they deserve.
Each of these short stories can be read alone, but to enjoy the richness of the tale I recommend you also find out more about the wonderful characters that feature in them in the Beauty For Ashes book series.
