He was good-natured, always up for a prank. I’m only doing this now because I’m worried that I won’t get the chance to go back and actually finish my notes without rereading it again. Aahes am not sure what happened to this part of Jo Treggiari’s story, but it made Ashes, Ashes tough for me by the end. It is a hundred or so pages later, though.

Review of “Ashes, Ashes” by Jo Treggiari | Rhapsody in Books Weblog

Her commitment to survival helps bolster us against such a desolate environment, her will as a single individual against an empty and frightening world earning our respect and admiration. And then it adds a romance, complete with obligatory triangle although in truth, not much of trsggiari.
