Man of Steel and Velvet by Aubrey AndelinIn these painful and confusing times it is all too easy to lose sight of the fundamental meaning of what it is to be a man and what it is to be a woman. Based on Christian ethics as taught in the Bible, Man of Velvet helps men and women gain a clearer perspective on true masculinity. It shows how the combined traits of the firmness of steel and the gentleness of velvet make a man who is a good provider and devoted husband worthy of the respect of his wife and children. With wisdom, insight and humor, Dr. Aubrey Andelin - whose wife, Helen Andelin, is the bestselling author of Fascinating Womanhood - offers his successful program for Christian harmony. From what it means to be a man to how to handle children and win their hearts, from conjugal love to the division of household chores, this book will make a happy difference in your marriage, in your life and in the lives of your children.

Oakleigh Manor is the home of Rosalind Vernon who lives alone but for her devoted servants and an ill-natured parrot, cut off from the outside world by the tragic result of a childhood accident. Philip Vernon actively dislikes him; Rosalind appears to be falling under the spell of the suavely elegant Duke of Rockliffe; and worse still, Amberley is haunted by a dark and terrible secret that, if revealed, may cause him to lose Rosalind forever. Alex Wyndham, is just outstanding and the perfect choice to bring it to life. This narrator does a lovely job with female voices, which I think is rare in a male narrator! A dynamic duo that complement each other.
It is hard to do a book like this justice. If one seeks to be generous and judge it for its good intentions, for dealing with a serious issue, and for being a relic of its time , one can be accused of condemning it with faint praise, given that many people almost swear by this book for reasons that are fairly easy to understand , but others are highly critical of this book, for good reason as well. There are reasons to praise this book and reflect upon it, and plenty to find fault in as well. Finding the balance between the good and bad, sifting the wheat from the chaff, is one of the responsibilities of a thoughtful reader. It was hard to read this book and not feel insulted at some parts of it, and easy to be encouraged by other parts of it, while a bit unsure exactly what intentions the author had in mind.
