My husband Roy and I live in a log cabin snuggled into the Appalachian mountains with our dog, Zeke. Our two grown daughters married great guys, and we adore our growing tribe of grandkids.
I enjoy movies, waterfalls, and travel. And if I could drink more than a pot of coffee a day without feeling guilty--or like a jitter bug in a hurricane--I would.
Biblical fiction is my favorite genre to read and write. I love researching those lesser-known ladies of the Bible to discover what they might teach us. Whether writing a book, a blog, or recording an audio study, my passion is to bring God's Word to life in unique and memorable ways.
Bible readers often think of Job sitting on an ash heap, his life in shambles. But how did he get there? What was Job's life like before tragedy struck? And what was life like after God restored his wealth, health, and family?
Through painstaking research and a writer's creative mind, Mesu Andrews weaves an emotional and stirring account of this well-known story told through the eyes of the women who loved him. Drawing together the account of Job with those of Esau's tribe and Jacob's daughter Dinah, Love Amid the Ashes breathes life, romance, and passion into the classic biblical story of suffering and steadfast faith.
