Thanks to all those who reviewed The Ashes of Heaven’s Pillar. Here is a sampling.
“There is no doubt that the author has a love of early history and uses her considerable knowledge and extensive research to shed light on stories which could all too easily be lost in the mist of time. The historical events sit comfortably alongside a story of loyalty and religious strife and by interweaving historical fact and fiction; a story emerges of a strong family changed by extraordinary historical events.” – JaffaReadsToo
“The Ashes of Heaven’s Pillar brings Kim Rendfeld’s painstaking research and sensitive psychological drama to some people we never hear about in the history books.” – Author Jessica Knauss
“I loved the story. Ms. Rendfeld has done a lot of research and created a wonderful story surrounding a Saxon family as they deal with slavery, heartache and betrayal.” – So Many Books, So Little Time
“Rendfeld’s novel is the perfect book to introduce you to a key period in the formation of Europe.” – Words and Peace
“So many glorious ups and downs. I told myself I would read up to the end of the chapter before bed only to blow through three or four and realize twelve came and went hours before.” – Jen Corkill
“I am thoroughly impressed with the author’s characterization and her strong historical detail. She really gives the reader a believable glimpse of what many of the people’s lives might have been like during this period. A truly extraordinary story that everyone must read.” – Layered Pages
“I truly enjoyed reading about everyday people who struggled with their faith beliefs, the cruelties of nature, the vagaries of human characteristics, survival, loss of honor, yet refused to let hope die. In these days of marquee historical fiction novels, The Ashes of Heaven’s Pillar is a refreshing and captivating tale. Highly recommended.” – Darlene Elizabeth Williams
