 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Will Faith Perish in the Big Top’s Flames?
Introducing a new series of 6 exciting novels featuring historic disasters that transformed landscapes and multiple lives. Whether by nature or by man, these disasters changed history and were a day to be remembered.
Evelyn Benson’s husband perished in the Bataan Death March but not her faith. The World War II Gold Star widow is taken in by her brother and soothed by the love of his wife and children. Evelyn refuses to cower to grief. She may not understand God’s mysterious ways, but she has never questioned Him—until the circus fire.
The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus train chugs into Hartford, Connecticut, on a sweltering day one month after the Allies invaded Normandy. Among the roustabouts is a reluctant clown, Hank Webb. He may hide from his murky past behind grease paint as Fraidy Freddie, but God wants to offer Hank a chance to be found. Though first, what little Hank believes about God will endure a fiery trial.
On Thursday, July 6, 1944, a devasting blaze of unknown origins consumes the circus tent along with Evelyn’s hopes and Hank’s anonymity.

When the Flames Ravaged is the second book in the A Day to Remember series. This is a multi-author series with each book focusing on a different event in history. As such, they can be enjoyed as standalones or in any order. 

This book focused on the Hartford circus fire of 1944. I honestly didn't know much about this event prior to reading the book, but I found the story absolutely intriguing. The author did a wonderful job of transporting us to this place and time and creating characters that I felt invested in right from the very start. It was a story of heartbreak and loss that was certainly very difficult at times, but it also offered a really beautiful message of hope. One of the big themes of the story was the question of why God allows tragedies to happen, and I think that is a question that so many can relate to. This was a beautiful story and one that I adored. 

If you enjoy Christian historical fiction, this is one you will definitely want to experience for yourself.
