Beauty for Ashes was a charming historical. It wasn't as romantic as I would have liked, but I enjoyed the mystery regarding Griff's past and the issue of Carrie feeling stuck taking care of people she never asked to be responsible for. She was a great heroine and I could see how Griff fell in love with her.

I love stories where the adventurous hero is tamed into desiring a domestic life because of the sweetness of a good woman. Carrie was definitely that. Griff was a great hero, too. He probably helped her keep her sanity after all of the mini-messes that needed fixing. I wish Carrie and Griff had shared a bit more affection, though. Carrie sure did get a lot of hard knocks from those kids she ended up responsible for during Mary's confinement. She was a strong and good-hearted lady. All in all it was a good story.
