ARRINGTON, BOOk #2
---Lillian Arrington's turbulent lifelong journey of lies, lust, greed and tragedy continues.---

It is the year 1878, and at last, Lillian, now a young woman, is free from the prison called Sutton Hall and the evil grandmother who ruled. After years locked away far from her beloved lighthouse on Jasper Island, she finds her only escape through sheer luck and the generosity of one man, Richard Parker, an aspiring commercial illustrator. Though Lillian is shamed by the sins of her parents and the unspeakable act committed by Warren Stone, she entrusts her life to the charismatic, though married, Richard, until it is safe to return home.
However life, as unpredictable as the sea, has other plans for Lillian.

Not long after leaving, she is caught up in an adult world of money, greed, drugs, and sinful pleasures, turning her life upside down once again.

It is only when Lillian discovers the shocking truth to Richard's cruel years of deception that she finally returns to her lighthouse, desperate to recapture her lost years, and most of all, lost love.

But fate has one more devastating surprise in store, leaving Lillian with incomprehensible choices, and ultimately, tearing her beautiful new world apart.

Editorial Reviews

RebeccasReads.com - Kam Aures
Having previously read Roxane Tepfer Sanford’s first novel, “The Girl in the Lighthouse,” I have been eagerly awaiting this follow-up work, “All That is Beautiful,” and I must say that it did not disappoint. Like the first novel, the style is very similar to that of one of my favorite authors V.C. Andrews, very fast-paced and filled with drama, drama, and more drama.

Sometimes the sequel to a book does not live up to the original. Roxane Tepfer Sanford has written a startling and touching end that offers dramatic closure. All That Is Beautiful is a delicate journey, a story of Lillian’s precipitous life. Soulfully memorable with the potential for unimaginable tears, this is a story that will paralyze your heart.
writersdigest.com - Writers Digest
"The writing is lean and literate in style, painting a fascinating word portrait that is given a humanist depth in the way the author portrays Lillian’s turbulent journey through life as set against the historical environment and situation that inform the shaping of those characters’ lives and destines. The authors choice of incident is well honored in the way the individual scenes reveal character through action and dialogue; an entertaining and informative read."

This book trails Lillian through her troubled life, she has many unfortunate paths. She was faced with difficult choices-always with one goal in mind. Definately worth reading! I couldnt put it down. Filled with urgency and suspense.

This series got 5 stars from me all the way around. Each book was very different, yet linked perfectly. The plots were interesting, and surprises awaited around ever flip of the page. It was a simple, easy read. Definitely worth the time.

I enjoyed this book. Lillian was very naive, maybe overly so, but she was chasing a dream! I must admit...I HATED THE ENDING!!!! Still, i am starting Sacred Intentions.

There were some grammatical errors/typos, but other than that a great story. Once again, just like with the first book, it ended too soon. I wish there had been more detail there. Other than that I was very impressed and definitely hooked on the series.

This is book two, following The Girl In The Lighthouse. I was really hoping for a happy ending after all poor Lillian went through in book 1 but I was to be denied. Not a bad read if you like the V. C. Andews type of book but a bit depressing for me.

I enjoyed the pace and well-crafted plot of this book. Overall, a highly recommended read, and a sequel that can live up to the first book. My download had no formatting problems. I look forward to reading more from Sanford.

I enjoyed reading the first book. I thought it was great. So I was so looking forward to reading the second one. Unfortunately, The second one I could not get past chapter 1. The heroine was very boring and naive. I couldn't believe how gullible she was. I had hoped that her character would be more developed by now.

The good is that this is a continuation of the first book in the series which kept my attention, and was a quick read. Unfortunately, it looks like this e-book wasn't ready for release yet. There is a lot of bad formatting, and quite a few notes from what appears to be an editor inserted right in the middle of paragraphs or sentences. I only paid 99 cents for this ebook, but if it is anything but free, this just shows a rush to publication. None of this was apparent in the first book of this series.
