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 devastating blaze of unknown origins consumes the circus tent along with Evelyn’s hopes and Hank’s anonymity.  

When the Flames Ravaged by Rhonda Dragomir is a Chrsitian Historical Romance book. It is Book 2 in a new 6 part series of historic American disasters that transformed landscapes and multiple lives. Whether by nature or by man, these disasters changed history and were a day to be remembered. The Series is written by Various Authors. 

The Setting is 1944  in Hartford, Connecticut. Evelyn Benson is a World War II widow who lost her husband in the Bataan Death March. She has stayed strong in her faith and has moved in with her Brother, his wife and children. Being with family uplifts her and gives her courage to move forward in life. Hank Webb is a clown, affectionately named Fraidy Freddie,  with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Hank Webb has a past that he would rather not remember so he lives his life behind the clown gear. Hank has a little faith in God and he feels God wants him to trust his plans. July 6, 1944 would be a life changing day for Hank and Evelyn, as the Circus Tent goes up in flames. Will Hank be able to trust God and learn to leave the past in the past? Will there be a relationship between Evelyn and Hank? 

I dove right into the storyline and it grabbed my attention right away. Evelyn is an amazingly strong woman and I really LOVE that her faith was strong also. She could have felt so lost, but her brother and family really helped with that also. Hank Webb seemed a little down and out, but he had a bit of faith. The Circus Tent Fire was a part of History that I was unaware of and it is a very intriguing part of the History. I really LOVE the History in this book and the author did a GREAT job at making it real. I I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Romance Fiction. AMAZING BOOK!
