About the book: 

Abby's shattered faith in both God and man is challenged when the terrible earthquake hits 1906 San Francisco.
While her sister lies on her deathbed, Abby Fischer prays for a miracle. What Abby doesn't expect, however, is for God's answer to come in the form of the handsome Dr. Robert King, whose experimental treatment is risky at best.
As they work together toward a cure, Abby's feelings for Robert become hopelessly entangled. Separated by the tragedy of the mighty San Francisco earthquake, their relationship suddenly takes a back seat to survival. With fires raging throughout the city, Abby fears for her life as she flees alone through burning streets. Where is God now? Will Robert find Abby, even as the world burns around them? Or has their love fallen with the ruins of the city?

My Review:
Karen Barnett is a new author to me, yet based on what I have read she is one whom will be on my must-read list! "Out of the Ruins" is the first book in Karen's Golden Gate Chronicles series and I am looking forward to reading book 2!  Karen has done a fabulous job with bringing the time period to life in  this book as she transports the reader back in time to the early 1900's and also a historical event as well.  I loved her style of writing and the details and imagery that is a part of the writing as they really created the scenes in the story and brought everything life.  The characters were also so lifelike as were their interactions with each other and I enjoyed "seeing" the relationship between Abby and Robert develop and grow.  I highly recommend this book to historical romance fans!
