{{Book Review}} Beyond the Ashes: Is their relationship worth a second chance at love when time might be short?

Where better to rebuild and face one's fears than in 1906 San Francisco, a city rising from the ashes?

Ruby Marshall, a young widow, is certain she'll discover new purpose assisting her brother Robert with his cancer research, but she doesn't anticipate finding new love.

Dr. Gerald Larkspur dreams of filling his empty home with family, but he'd always hoped it would be a wife and children. In the aftermath of the great earthquake, the rooms are overflowing with extended family and friends left homeless by the disaster. When Robert's widowed sister arrives, the close quarters seem close indeed.

Ruby and Gerald's fledgling romance is put at risk when Gerald develops symptoms of the very disease they're striving to cure. Together they must ask---is it worth a second chance at love when time might be short?

*My Review*
 "Beyond The Ashes" is the second in The Golden Gate Chronicles series. The first book is referenced, but this book can be read as a stand alone. Though if you have the chance , I would read "Out of the Ruins first".

I did have trouble getting into this book at first. The first few chapters chapters just didn't grab my attention, but as I kept on reading I was able to enjoy the story for what it is.
