Angel's Den by Jamie Carie with giveaways


In 1808, when Emma meets and marries Eric Montclaire (the famed "most handsome man west of the Appalachians"), this young daughter of prominent St. Louis citizens believes a fairy tale has just begun. Instead, her husband's angelic looks quickly prove only to mask a monstrous soul all too capable of possessive emotions and physical abuse. Praying for mercy, she is devastated when Eric insists on her joining his yearlong group expedition to the Pacific Ocean, following the trail Lewis and Clark blazed just a few years earlier. By the time cartographer Luke Bowen realizes Emma's plight, it's too late to easily untangle what has become an epic web of lies, theft, murder, courtroom drama, and a deep longing for love. Only God can show them the way out.

My take:~

Pick up any Jamie Carie novel and you can expect vivid descriptions, perceptive characterisation and passionate emotions. Angel's Den provides all that and more as Jamie tackles the difficult and emotive issue of hidden spousal abuse in her most recent love story. With sensitivity and compassion, Jamie writes authentically about the frightening life Emma endures when trapped in a violent marriage and how drawn she feels to the compassionate cartographer her husband invites on their expedition. Murder, deceit and forbidden love journey together on the the Appalachian trail as Luke and Emma seek God's will in the midst of heartbreak and the binding power of Emma's marriage vows. While not an easy book to read in some respects, Angel's Den is moving and challenging, with a deep message of God's grace and sovereignty that will stay with you for a long time. Once again, Jamie proves she is one of the most talented writers in this genre.

After reading all the comments on Julie Lessman's kissing post before I wrote my review, I was actually thinking of you as I have long seen similarities between Julie and Jamie's writing. I was thinking this would be a book you would like and here you are as my first comment - LOL!
