Editorial Reviews

Review

"Grace in the Flames is a beautiful, heartrending depiction of God's love and grace. The characters' struggles, mistakes and pain were achingly real and God's faithfulness was the path-lighting ember in each of the characters' journeys. This is an emotionally evocative and profoundly moving tale of mistakes redeemed and lives intertwined in a divine tapestry of grace and hope. Highly recommended."
-- Cheryl Wyatt, USA TODAY bestselling author
of award-winning Wings of Refuge series.

"Michelle Massaro's distinctive voice captivates and enthralls in this outstanding debut novel. Grace in the Flames is unforgettable...out of the ordinary...pure literary magic.  I look forward to whatever comes next from this talented author."
-- Delia Latham, Inspirational Romance Author

"Grace in the Flames is a stouthearted story of people who find grace, forgiveness, and hope through their pain, loss, and regrets. Massaro crafts a vivid picture of redemption in her debut novel."
-- Jessica R. Patch, author of the Seasons of Hope series, Fatal Reunion, and Protective Duty.

From the Author

Dear Reader,

I invite you to take this journey with me through the lives of John, Jenni, and April. Their story has been with me for many years, and I am grateful for the chance to now share it with you. I pray that something in these pages spoke to your heart as deeply as it did to mine.

When I first "met" these characters, I was struck by the idea of how difficult and refining it would be to love someone through such a deeply traumatic situation as theirs. What would that be like? If God asked it of me, could I respond the way Jenni did? I don't know if I could, but she inspires me to dig down deep and let God have his way with me.

Writing this story challenged me to answer tough questions about my own faith. How do I respond when life gets hard? Do I become resentful and pull away from God, or do I surrender to His will? I pray to have a heart like Job's that answers "the Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord," rather than the heart of the prodigal who fled from his father's shelter and provision.

It's so easy to sing "I Surrender All" until you're asked to surrender what's most precious. As I wove the details of this story together, God revealed my own weaknesses and areas I struggle to surrender to Him. I'll be honest, I still struggle. But I cling to God's promise that "He who began a good work in me will be faithful to complete it." Sometimes we are very slow to learn, but God is so patient! And Grace in the Flames has reminded me of our Father's perfect love, and ability to take us through any storm in life if only we will cling to Him.

Let that truth take root in your heart today as well.

~ Michelle

What I thought was going to be a sweet, simple romance turned quickly into a page turner that had me hurrying to return so I could find out how these three people were going to get through some very tricky circumstances. Massaro wrote her flawed, but likable characters into corners and kept throwing more life at them in a complicated but realistic dilemma until the very satisfying, but not cliched, ending. Their struggles with faith and tough situations were handled expertly and the writing is quite strong. Consider yourself warned, you'll want to keep reading once you start. Recommended!

I have a hard time knowing when to give five star reviews. I am a critical reader and frankly most books just aren't five star books to me. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy them, I do, they just don't stand out as extraordinary. This book, now this books deserves five stars...or even six!

This is not an easy book. The characters are very real and well developed. The situations and their struggles are so very real and so very painful. But the story is divinely developed and inspired in its telling. Beautifully written. The struggles are dealt with in a believable way. I was very invested in the outcome. I would highly recommend this book if you are willing to cry and struggle along with the characters, not an easy journey, but so worth the time.

I loved this book. It is a well written novel that realistically deals with the concerns and trials that Christians go through. The characters are strongly developed and they stand out from each other. I cared about all of the characters, which is a sign that a writer knows what she is doing and she has successfully captured the reader. In the first half of the novel, I did feel that April's and John's chapters/pov were too far apart so I wasn't sure who April was when we returned to her again. I also felt that the falling in love moments were a bit mushy and teenage-like for adult-aged relationships. And I didn't understand why Jenni hurt herself in the past, so a little more explaining was needed. But, those things aside, I was really impressed with Massaro's writing talent. She keeps you there throughout the very intricate plot line, weaving in the seemingly impossible to overcome obstacles and testing everyone's faith on levels that prove challenging and that can only be defeated with endurance and trust in God.

Intrigued by the cover, I opened the Look Inside and began reading. The words were so strong and engaging that I bought the book with One Click before I finished. The characters are real people with intense struggles. No stereotypes, platitudes or Sunday School characters. The plot line is believable, with hints of what is coming, so we'll crafted that I was cheering for each development. This is no lightweight read, but if you're looking to engage your head and your heart, have at it! (Just make sure to have some free time because you won't want to put it down.)

This book touches on the reality of grief, sin and pain that can go along with it. I found some of the things a little difficult to navigate with, but I was intrigued from the beginning to the end and was willing to overlook some of those. I really enjoyed the overall story and found myself tearing up at times towards the end. The story of redemption, the talk of dealing with broken people and healing was incredible.

Deep-thinking tale of the consequences of our actions even in the midst of deep grief. Even when the easy route is simply walking away, taking responsibility for the cost of our choices takes courage, faith, and a network of love. Told in alternating viewpoints and encompassing two years, deals with tough issues.

What an amazing story of God's grace and love for His children. He really does carry us through. I couldn't put the book down at times and when I had to, it kept lingering in my mind. What was going to happen to Jenni and John? What good could possibly come from April's surprise? The romance was so touching and the end found me in tears! Good job Michelle Massaro, this one is a keeper!

A year after losing his beloved family in a fire, John Douglas turns his back on what remains of his life--his job, his mother, even God--as he tries to reason out why. Why would God take everything away after blessing his life so richly? The road holds no answers, but one life-changing night puts John back on the path of faith and he finds a new home in southern California.

Escaping an abusive relationship, April Johanson is desperate to find a way to support herself. But for a young woman with few skills, finding a decent job and place to live is hard. With her options running out, April makes a difficult decision.

Jenni Dupont is finding herself unwillingly attracted to the new guy at her church. John seems like a nice guy, new to faith, and she'd like to get to know him more, but she's careful with her heart and doesn't want to give it away too freely. God's plans for them, however, will not be denied, and the two slowly find themselves falling in love. Everything is going perfectly...until April shows up on John's doorstep.

Christians know they should always rely on God, even when...even when things don't quite go the way you want, even when things go completely wrong, you should always rely on God for He knows the plans He has for you (Jeremiah 29:11). But how do you hold on to that faith and continue to love God even if? The author addresses this question beautifully in this Christian romance about losing everything, even one's faith, and finding redemption on the other side. About trusting God to know that the path you're on is difficult, but if you stay His course, He will see you through to a better, more enriched life. To share the gospel, even when you find resistance. To believe in Him, even when you've never had reason to before.
