Out of the ruins by Karen Barnett

Out of the Ruins
Out of the Ruins | The Golden Gate Chronicles, Book 1
Abby’s shattered faith in both God and man is challenged when the terrible earthquake hits 1906 San Francisco.
While her sister lies on her deathbed, Abby Fischer prays for a miracle. What Abby doesn’t expect, however, is for God’s answer to come in the form of the handsome Dr. Robert King, whose experimental treatment is risky at best.
As they work together toward a cure, Abby’s feelings for Robert become hopelessly entangled. Separated by the tragedy of the mighty San Francisco earthquake, their relationship suddenly takes a back seat to survival. With fires raging throughout the city, Abby fears for her life as she flees alone through burning streets. Where is God now? Will Robert find Abby, even as the world burns around them? Or has their love fallen with the ruins of the city?
My opinion: This book was interesting and engaging.Having never read any books previously by Ms. Barnett I was excited to read this one and I am glad I did! I am a big fan of historical fiction, but it is rare to find one that I truly enjoyed but I loved this book and enjoyed finding out more about the San Franscisco earthquake.
I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
