Product Description

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.

Jamie Carie’s Angel’s Den is a story that brings to light a common but often hidden issue, telling of one young girl’s nightmare. Carie successfully addresses the topic of marital abuse, showing the shame, fear, and hopelessness that many women experience in such situations. Though the book starts off slowly, the time is used to introduce well-developed characters, such as Emma (Daring) Montclaire, Eric Montclaire, and Luke Bowen and to tell of how they handle this issue from different perspectives.

Like everyone else in early 19th century St. Louis, Emma Daring had been drawn in by Eric Montclaire’s charm, and for some reason unbeknown to her, he had chosen her to be his wife. No one could have told her that as soon as she was lawfully his, Eric’s charm would become her enemy. Who would believe Eric Montclaire to be capable of beating his wife?

Using thoughtful dialogue, two points of view, and an interesting plot, Carie is able to tell the story of two people whose faith in God is the only thing keeping them alive. Emma is trying to figure out how to escape Eric’s control, and Luke Bowen is trying to figure out how he got involved in the mess in the first place. Luke does what he can to protect Emma once he knows what is going on, from strengthening her faith in God to risking his life for her.

Throughout the book, Emma relates her situation to Daniel’s experience in the lions’ den in Daniel 6. In both cases, an innocent person is placed in a deadly situation, and the only one able to save them is God. As stated in Psalm 37:28 [NIV], both Emma and Luke find hope in the Lord’s promise to protect “his faithful ones” when all hope seems lost to them.

In one such situation when they are put on trial for the death of an innocent man, the reader knows the truth, but Emma and Luke have no proof of their innocence. Suspense builds as Eric is obviously winning people over to his side as he always does. Then Carie brings in a twist that catches the reader off guard and proves that faith along with patience was their greatest hope.

All in all, Angel’s Den is a well-crafted novel that many women today will be able to relate to. Whether you know someone dealing with abuse or you suffer from abuse yourself, you can discover how a young woman found the hope of God to get her through such painful circumstances. This is a book well worth reading. It demonstrates that with God, there is always hope. – Nicole E. Dynes, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Publisher's Weekly

Carie, author of five romances for the Christian market, now offers fans a contrived story set in the early 1800s, the time period noted for exploration of the American West by Lewis and Clark. Carie's female protagonist, Emma Daring, daughter of a well-to-do St. Louis couple, believes she is about to enter into a real-life fairy tale by marrying “the most handsome man.” Eric Montclaire, though devilishly beguiling in outward appearance, swiftly reveals his dark inner side as Emma's new husband. Terrified and emotionally defeated, Emma secretly looks forward to Eric's upcoming travel expedition when she will find freedom from him. Too bad for Emma that Eric decides to take her along. En route, Emma discovers hidden strength and finds support from cartographer Luke Bowen, who sees through Eric's guise and vows to protect Emma no matter the personal cost. Though Carie's previous fiction titles have won accolades, this one fails to deliver the goods in either character or story. (Feb.)Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

    Angels Den was such an interesting book. It is full of historic sites and details from along the trail that Lewis and Clark once traveled, as well as a storyline that kept me glued to the book till the very end. There is just so much wrapped up in this story!

    At its most basic, this is a tale of warning. Emma enters into marriage with Eric Montclaire without realizing the kind of man he truly is. It is a tale of his abuse toward her and the way in which he attempts to control everything she says and does. But another important reminder from Angels Den concerns the importance of relationships. Eric grew into the cruel and manipulative man that he was because of his fathers cruel abuse of his own family. In the same way, Luke Bowen, another major character in the book, is a strong and godly man because of the spiritual influence that his parents provided for him. Luke attempts to help Emma learn more about Gods love for her, in order to give her hope for the future. And he finds a mentor in Judge Littleton. This man is able to help Luke look deeper into his feelings for Emma. She needs Luke and his help, but he must not forget that she is married to another, even if that man is a monster to her.

    Something that I really enjoyed was the adventure in this story. It was a very exciting read. Eric Montclaire truly believes he is above all others and can get away with anything. And he seems to! Time and time again, he triumphs. When things seem to have gotten as low as they possibly could, I just had to keep reading to find out if his evil plans would truly flourish. There were some surprises along the way that I didnt see coming and that was fun as well. All in all, an enjoyable story.

    I would like to express my thanks to B&H Publishing for the complimentary copy of this book that I received in exchange for an honest review.
