Présentation de l'éditeur

In the prim-and-proper Philadelphia of 1820, a shocking marriage...

It was the perfect contract for a marriage of convenience to a woman he didn't even know. Didn't want to know. Justin Randolph, a wealthy Philadelphia widower responsible for two small children, is convinced that love is a myth. The only reason for marriage is to find a mother for the children under his care.

Mistaken for Justin's intended bride, Elizabeth Frazier seizes the opportunity to escape a forced marriage to wealthy, abusive Reginald Burton-Smythe. In contrast to Reginald's unwelcome attentions, Justin's aloof indifference is appealing, and the plight of his motherless little girls pierces her heart. Like Justin, Elizabeth enters into the marriage seeking not love, but safety. God, however, has a different plan...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 very enjoyable read 22 juin 2005
Par Sherri R. Myers - Publié sur
Since others have already told what the book is about, I will just say it is a very enjoyable read and one romance historical lovers should check out. It is a book readers will become engrossed in. Dorothy also has a new book with Justin's sister as the main character entitled JOY FOR MOURNING which is a July 05 release from Steeple Hill. I have read it and it is excellent also, one that should also be picked up if you decide to purchase this one, which I really hope you decide to do!

When Elizabeth married Justin Randolph, it was strictly a business deal. She was to take care of the children, run his house, and put up a good "wifely" appearance for people in general. No intimacy. For this, she received room and board, proper clothing, and a goodly monetary settlement. That was Justin's understanding and desire.

Elizabeth`s desire was a place to escape her father and marriage to Reginald Burton-Smythe. Intimacy was not necessary. She accepted the clothing to look proper but wanted no money. "...I do not wish to feel purchased."

She thought God had forsaken her. But did she want to know a Father God who left such bad things happen to his children? Her father was a wealthy, selfish, greedy man. Money was his god and Elizabeth his chattel. Were all men like that? According to her mother, yes. But she had heard of a different relationship between her grandparents.

Justin was a ship owner of means. He had earlier been jilted for lack of money by his fiancée and later was married for his money. His wife left him for her old boyfriend. Her death left him with two babies and a bitter, battered heart.

But God had other plans. Isaiah 61:1-3 reads: The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; bind up the brokenhearted, comfort all that mourn; give unto them beauty for ashes...."

Could Elizabeth and Justin learn to trust God and each other? Could God heal? Were they willing to let Him?

Dorothy Clark has woven a beautiful, compelling story of God's mercy and healing as she shows how He can draw two bruised and battered people back to Himself. Truly, God can and does give "beauty for ashes" in our lives as we yield ourselves to Him. - Linda Demorest, Christian Book

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very creative! 21 février 2005
Par Mrs Debarr - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I enjoyed this book, my only complaint is the inappropriate giggling the heroine does early in the book. She's been accosted by the man her parents want her to marry, her life is totally fraught with uncertainties (she just married a total stranger) and she's giggling...I personally found it hard to believe and very annoying but in spite of that, the book is a worthwhile read! I have dropped it to 4 stars after rereading because there should be a difference in a fine book and one that is an enjoyable read but a tad cheesy in some ways. There is a LOT of inappropriate giggling and for that alone it should be a 4. I liked the way the author developed the relationship but Elizabeth's discovery of this fact is a first silly (a little dance of joy in her room?) and from that to totally hiding her feelings- annoying. Some things I really liked (like the overall creativity of the story and characters). I should add that I typically have found love inspired a total waste of time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 History, Romance, and Suspense -- A Novel With It All 14 juin 2004
Par Tina L. Miller - Publié sur
What would you sacrifice to escape an arranged marriage with a cruel, evil man? Would you leave your home and sacrifice any hope of finding true love? Would you trade a loveless marriage of convenience to an absolute stranger for safety from the abusive man your parents want you to marry? Elizabeth Frazier is faced with this dilemma in Beauty for Ashes. If you enjoy historical romance, you'll enjoy this story that interweaves suspense and romance with Elizabeth's growing awakening to the power of prayer and her own personal trust in God. When she discovers God is a real and loving God, perhaps she can open her own heart to love-and trade beauty for ashes.
