Detailed plot synopsis reviews of From the Ashes

FROM THE ASHES is a "Star is born" story--a man whose musical performing career is cut short by disability, a woman who can play his music and see into his soul. But James Michael Goodwin hurt Melody Rowland years ago, and when he comes back into her life, she discovers she's still holding a grudge she has to get over in order to work with him. Through their collaboration, Melody comes to understand James's remorse about that hurt, as well as understanding how deeply his disability has wounded him. James learns to surrender not only his music to this woman, but his heart. And together they triumph over a final crisis that can either drive them forever apart...or bond them together for the rest of their lives.
