Beauty For Ashes: Isaiah Cadre, Book 1 (Isaiah Cadre Series) is the first of a series by my friend, Alyce-Kay Ruckelshaus. It chronicles the story of Kelly, a student at Westmont College in Santa Barbara in 1981. She is an MK (missionary kid) and in love with Matt, a PK (preacher’s kid). She is also part of the Isaiah Cadre, a group of dorm mates who have committed themselves to God and one another.
The book starts off a little slowly but sets the stage well for an idyllic college experience, deep friendships, and young romance. It gives context that will be important later. And then the unthinkable happens and in a moment, Kelly’s world is shattered. Her faith is tested. Her love is tested. Even her friendships are tested.
The book offers a realistic portrayal of the way many people handle sudden trauma. It especially demonstrates how trauma affects a normally logical person, and how shame can distort one’s thinking.
I highly recommend this book. I loved it even though it’s not my demographic. It’s well written, fast moving, and thoughtful. The author offers discussion questions for personal use or better yet, for a book group. Or even for a cadre. And best of all, it’s free on Kindle!
P.S. Just finished the book, at first glance seemed like simple light reading, however, on reading further, while it is easy to read, it is not light. It is powerful and heart wrenching at times, heart warming at others. The whole thing carries multiple powerful messages.
1 Put God first. 2 TRUST HIM. 3 Pro-life, when He gives you a gift, such as a child, don't throw it away.
You will be crying your eyes out, and shocked when you reach the end, pining away for the next book, (hint, hint.)
P.P.S. recommend pre-reading for teens.
