The Blue Enchantress

The Blue Enchantress
By: M.L. Tyndall

Once again M.L. Tyndall has produced a book that you just can't put down. This book is so relevant for the issues that many people face today, but in a much better time period (in my opinion). Hope Westcott really struggles with her identity; with feeling truly loved; with trusting the right people. Any of those things sound familiar to you? It is wonderful to see the transformation of Hope throughout the book. She has the desire to do what is right and to make right the things she has done wrong in the past, but she quickly learns that it is a much harder and longer road than she ever imagined it could be.

Captain Nathaniel Mason is also a very relevant character. Not many people are willing to give up all they have to help someone else or to follow Christ with all your heart, soul, and mind. That is the struggle that Nathaniel faces. He is thrown into numerous situations where he has to give up things that are very important to him. Things he has worked for his whole life. He truly loves the Lord and wants to serve Him, but really struggles with the thought that he may have to give all he has in order to do that.

Pick up this book to see how they each learn to overcome their struggles in some unexpected ways. M.L. Tyndall has an amazing talent in writing fiction books that are so convicting! May God continue to bless her ministry through her writing.

Back of the Book:

Still grieving the loss of her mother--and private tragedies of her own--Hope Westcott plays the part of a dutiful admiral's daughter. But longing for the love and acceptance she never felt at home, Hope plunges into Charles Towne society. . . and an illicit affair with Lord Faulkland.

For Captain Nathaniel Mason, wealth means security, so he is determined to build up his shipping business--ignoring God's call on his life to become and impoverished pastor. He also ignores his attraction to the frivolous, vain Hope Westcott.

Hope's adventure seeking lands her in the hands of an unscrupulous ship captain who wants to sell her to the highest bidder. When Nathaniel sees Hope on the auction block, will he listen to God and sacrifice his ship, cargo, and security to save her?

From the Carolina Coast to the Caribbean, through stormy seas and shipwreck, can Hope and Nathaniel put aside their painful pasts, listen to God's voice, and find true love and acceptance?

Thank you for stopping by!
