Editorial Reviews


Hoefling paints a vivid, bold picture of a clairvoyant woman's life in this enjoyable take on the Old Testament Genesis story... This intense story captures the personal nature of persecution that suffuses the tales of the Old Testament... faithful, determined characters will hold particular appeal for fans of Mesu Andrews.  --BookLife
"Ashes Like Bread is a story of courage and love that will grip every reader's heart and mind. The plot develops slowly,languidly, and is enriched by the author's language. As the pace goes faster,so do our heartbeats because, intriguingly, Zyla's character is surprisingly relatable even to contemporary readers. And this is perhaps the unique reason why this is a book that'll leave an intellectually stimulating aftertaste, long after we finish reading it... a must-read for Christians and non-Christians alike!" Readers Favorite, five-star review
"Lyrical, evocative, and filled with religious symbolism, Ashes Like Bread is a riveting read. It is told in a language that is atmospheric, rife with mystery and biblical references, deeply moving." Readers Favorite, five-star review

From the Author

Toni Morrison is quoted as saying, "If there's a book you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it." That's what motivated me to write my first novel, Gold in Havilah, and now Ashes Like Bread, both about obscure women from the early chapters of Genesis before Noah's flood. I am fascinated with the mystery of history, ancient characters from the mists of the world's first civilizations, and the older, the better. I hope you'll read Ashes Like Bread and enter into a world before time where people act pretty much like all the rest of us do!
