I was given a copy of Under the Ashes through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows:
This book will transport the reader back to 1906 Paso Robles California LittleBeth or Elizabeth is eleven and her family thinks she’s untamed but LittleBeth thinks she’s the Bravest, fastest most interesting girl in town. Even savingthe her brothers life doesn’t seem to bring praise from her family. Her family decides to send her to the Presbyterian Academy for Girls in San Francisco in hopes of teaching her to be more lady like.
While going to school in San Francisco Elizabeth will be staying with her Aunt but shortly after her arrival the Great San Francisco Earthquake happens her Aunt Sally is seriously injured but as the fires take over the city Beth finds that she truly needs to be brave as she rescues her injured Aunt from the burning Hospital unfortunately Sally is unable to save her Aunt.
Under the Ashes is a book I’d highly recommend.
Five out of five stars
