MaryLu Tyndall has a real gift for bringing characters to life and making you feel you know them in a deep and personal way. The Blue Enchantress is no exception. She has skillfully crafted believable characters--flawed like you an me. She doesn't sugar coat things but hands you life as it was in the 1700's. And does she know her time periods. You'll feel like you are there. MaryLu brings you along on stormy seas and deserted islands. If you've never sailed on a tall ship you'll feel like you have when you finish this book. Her descriptions are fabulous. Ever wonder what it would be like to be stranded on a deserted island? You'll know after reading the Blue Enchantress.
From the moment you start reading you will be riveted to the book as M.L. Tyndall begins Hope Westcott's story with the young woman on the auction block! The thing she does best is look for love in all the wrong places. This time it's in the arms of the not so chivalrous Lord Falkland. She is spurned by him and is shocked when she discovers the man is married. Don't fret, she is quickly rescued by Nathaniel Mason, an acquaintance who has admired her since they met in Charles Towne. Nathaniel, a man with his own problems, stumbles across her just in time, and begrdgingly buys her freedom. I won't tell you how because that was one of the most romantic things, even though he does resent the gallant act.
Nathaniel is a man of God but isn't listening to what God wants him to do with his life. Ashamed of his heritage, he thinks the way to prove himself is to become rich. Thrown together now until he can get her back home to Charles Towne, Mr. Mason struggles with his own feelings. A hurricane lands them on a deserted island where many more hardships are faced. And then things go from bad to worse when a pirate ship lands on the island. Nathaniel must now decide if he is willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice.
Love blossoms but not before God reveals some changes they both need to make in their lives. Will Nathaniel yield to God's calling on his life? Can Hope turn from her sordid ways? Discover the thrills, spiritual warfare, and romance in The Blue Enchantress.
This book is a page-turner that you won't want to put down. Once again, MaryLu never disappoints!
