I just finished reading through A Garland for Ashes, and my eyes are still moist with tears.

In the interest of full disclosure, I know Hanna and her story, and even make a brief appearance in the book. So perhaps I am biased.

However, I also know great literature. I attended St. John's College, where for four years I read the great books of western civilization. One thing I became convinced of was that many of these books came to be considered great, because the author was able to unfold for the reader what it was like to be an ordinary human being - even in the midst of history-changing events.

Hanna succeeds in just this way. This book is as much about her as about the Holocaust. She has researched her own heart, feelings, and thoughts as carefully as she has researched the history of the Rzuchowski Forest. And she shows us what it is to emerge triumphant through the power of reconciliation, when facing the evil within as well as the evil without.

Thank you, Hanna, for this gift to the world.

A Garland for Ashes is a MUST READ!!! I got caught up in it immediately,but then some of the horror made me put it down for just a little while. I know this 'little Girl' who is a most beautiful Woman inside and out. So back to the book I went to find out so many things that brought her to this place in her life. There are so many examples in Hanna's
life that show us we should NEVER give up, but always put our TRUST in OUR LORD.
Thanks be to Hanna for writing this wonderful book.

This sweet woman's account of her journey as a 6 year old on one of the last Kindertransports out of Germany through the realization that her parent's had been holocaust victims was very moving. Her writing is beautiful-- filled with meaningful metaphors and her journey into a ministry of understanding, remembrance and forgiveness of the German people is amazing.

Hanna Miley's story is a story for everyone, and is the true tale of beauty being given for ashes.

It is for anyone whose heart has been shattered, their trust burned through. their confidence and joy, usurped, their ability to cope with life, near extinct.

It is the story of the redemption of the human race through the life, death, and resurrection a Man - coming to know a Life that is beyond our life, the One who is gently calling and sometimes near pushing us to receive Him, to open to Him - in love, for love, for our freedom and true healing.

It is the story of what happens when we are invited to face with courage what we most dread, most fear, and would much rather push aside and not bother with, thank you very much - except we are urged to. Except that we sense there has to be more to life than what we are experiencing.

Hanna's story is the story of my spiritual mother, who at the young age of being a twentysomething decided to put her trust in Jesus. I cannot believe how beautiful she becomes throughout this book - heart-wrenching as her journey is. I cannot believe how beautiful she continues to grow in reality as well - a vibrant, sharp, radiant women whose youthfulness becomes her.

Hanna's story is one that, as it unfolds, invites us to unfold ours as well - our fears, our bitterness, our unforgiveness. And the breath of Life surprises us with its quickness, its keeness to revive, to call forth, to make all things new.

I not only recommend the book, I recommend the woman, the couple that she and George are, and the gift it would be for anyone to be with them. I hope there are many book events and signings to come, that the "leaves" of this book would also be for the healing of the nations.

In A Garland For Ashes, Hanna Miley recounts her story of transformation from bitterness to forgiveness with honesty and tenderness, a miracle in itself since her journey started in the 1930's when the Nazi ring of horror and injustice was tightening around the Jews in Germany.

Given every reason to be filled all her life with hatred toward the Nazis who separated her forever from her loving parents, she chose instead to find out more about their fate and to open herself to healing. It is a very personal story in which family, faith, friends and tradition are primary in her dealing with the effects of the atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis.

Her book takes us on her journey from childhood memories to recent years, unfolding a magnificent story of courage and, ultimately, of forgiveness.

I have known Hannah and George Miley for many years, and have observed their lives. It is always amazing to see God's work in a human heart over a period of years. These are lovely children of God, and their testimony is true. Hannah's story is a "must read". I was living in England when the Evacuees came to Britain to escape Hitler's rule, and most Americans don't know the story of these children. Hannnah is an inspiration and a testimony of what God will do in a yielded human heart. One question remains....where would American children flee to, should something similar happen here? And don't think it couldn't happen here....
