What an amazing book!! Such a gut wrenching topic and yet told with class. While the scenes are intense and somewhat graphic, the reader is never glaringly exposed to the abuse. The words lead, imagine and conjure thought of what is happening, but never blatantly, graphically describe what is going on.
Elspeth and Forest are two kids I admire, to endure what they went through is to break ones heart. That they came so close to breaking on more than one occasion is understandable and yet, they pressed on and believed that there may be something better for them. Even though it didn't seem like it in reality.
Elspeth, after finding out their abusers plans for them, makes plans of her own. Plans that hopefully will set them free. Forest, the boy with the body of a man and yet so much a child. They are each other's hope and grace, even when things get really dark and the abuse reaches another level.
A brilliantly, beautiful book that will stun, horrify, bring you to tears, experience a feeling of helplessness and yet have hope that things will improve for them.
I highly recommend this book even though it is a tear jerker.
While this is a story made up in the authors mind, the sad reality is that somewhere out there in the big wide world, this is actually happening to someone.
Thank you Ellie for taking on such a difficult topic and delivering it with class and style. ❤
Elsbeth and Forest are foster brother and sister who grew up in an abusive foster home. The abuse they endure is unimaginable but the love they have for one another is what keeps them going. Even during the worst abuse they've ever endured, the love they have for one another keeps them going, to keep surviving for the day when they'll finally be free.
While reading Ashes to New, there where times I was soo angry I wanted to scream because I felt so helpless. Other times I cried for not only all the pain Elsbeth and Forest went through, but also for the love they had for one another.
Ellie Masters does an amazing job of telling the horrors they endured without making it gratuitous or overly done. And also creating characters that you'll fall in love with because of their strength, loyalty to one another, and their fighting spirit.
Ellie Masters has done a great job with the character and showing how they cope with all that is happening to them an how they survive.
Love can conquer the worst kind of evils.
