Well-written "Hatfields-McCoys" feud story.

Okay, to tell you the truth, I'm not that keen personally on family feud stories, or small town battles.

But this author pulls it off. He sucked me right into the story with his superior writing.

Interesting other reviewers commented a lot on the space shuttle aspect of the story. But to me, it's the bonds that entangle - and survive - between the various characters in this small eastern Texas town, and the pervading mood of grittiness, and sorrow and red

I received this book from the author as part of a Goodreads/FirstReads giveaway. I thank the author for the book. In no way did it affect my review. All opinions are 100% mine.

Clay Mitchell has written quite some book. In some circles it might be known as a "knock down, dragged out, come-to-Jesus" story. I don't mean that harshly. This is a good book. It has a wonderful premise of finding the lost parts of life...taking care of your family, all very good foundations for a book.

Won in a Goodreads first reads giveaway.

Wow....Loved this book! Amid the Ashes and the Dust is about a man who has lost his faith and, through a life filled with one tragedy after another, finds it again. This is a faced-paced and engaging novel. It has a little bit of everything mystery, thriller, romance, and religion. Details are intricately woven together to form a very satisfying read with an amazing end. Very clean and well written. Would definitely recommend this book to others!
