Editorial Reviews


With captivating characters that warm and nearly break your heart, an intriguing, can't turn the pages fast enough plot, and a passionate love story, I was touched, inspired, and encouraged in my walk of faith. All the passion and adventure of the War of 1812 spring to life in MaryLu Tyndall's wonderfully written and researched Surrender the Dawn. An absolute pleasure to read from first to last! --Laura Frantz, author of The Frontiersman's Daughter, Courting Morrow Little and The Colonel's Lady

Swordplay, swashbuckling and sweetness. . .Tyndall s newest book combines fascinating history, adventure on the high seas and the taming of the town rogue into a novel packed with excitement and delivering on romance. --T.L. Higley, author of Pompeii: City on Fire

A good old-fashioned historical packed with rich, beautiful details launches the Surrender to Destiny series with pirates, swordplay and lots of romance. The characters are so much fun, readers will not want the book to end. Tyndall is a gem, and her characters are bold and believable. --Patsy Glans RT Book Reviews 2011-08-01

Format: Paperback
Cassandra Channing's determination to save her family from destitution sends her on a near impossible quest. The war of 1812 presents the unique opportunity to invest in a privateer--yet no man is willing to submit himself to a woman investor. The town rake, Luke Heaton, isn't the most reputable. With only a broken sea vessel that will cost far too much to repair and no one willing to take a chance on him, he knows his luck is short. When the beautiful Miss Channing offers to invest in him, he knows he can't turn the opportunity down. Is it possible she could be the answer to his deepest desire--a new start?
As Luke and Cassandra work together, an undeniable attraction pulls them closer together. When it finally seems as though Luke may have his new start, the British blackmail him into selling to them and betraying his country, risking everything he holds dear.

Once more MaryLu Tyndall takes readers on an epic sea adventure filled with danger and heart-stopping romance. In this satisfying conclusion to the Surrender to Destiny Series, readers will find themselves engaged in this thrilling and unique story. Through detailed and vivid description, she breaths life into the War of 1812.

From the fist page, I couldn't put it down. Filled with brilliant writing and determined characters, I hung on every word, desperate to know what would happen next. Mrs. Tyndall is a talented writer who captures the thrill of a high-sea adventures and awakens the sea-lover within (Yes, even me--and I hate the sea!).

A word of warning however: this book is not a continued progression to Surrender the Night (#2). Since Surrender the Night is a continuation to Surrender the Heart (#1), I naturally expected the third to progress in time.

Surrender the Dawn... By MaryLu Tyndall
With her father and brothers gone from home, Cassandra Channing is taking care of her family. She wants to invest her money into something reliable, but no one wants to take investments from a woman. That is until Luke Heaton comes into the picture. Luke won a ship while gambling and he needs money to restore it, but with his drinking and gambling, can he be trustworthy? Will Cassandra turn all of her money over to Luke for the ship fixer upper? And it doesn't help matters when Cassandra and Luke start having feelings for each other as they spend time together. Read this wonderful historical story to find out these answers.
In Surrender the Dawn, MaryLu Tyndall writes another page-turning historical romance. The unique characters were so real I felt like I knew them personally. And I love that she so professionally weaves the characters from all three book together in this last book in the series. I will miss reading about these charming and fun characters.
This is my first series by MaryLu to read, and I am hooked! I love the passion she has for writing historical fiction, and the way that passion comes to life in her writing. Another thing I almost forgot is the message in her stories of the importance of living Godly lives. Of course these characters are just like people today, they struggle daily with difficult issues, causing them to turn their backs on God, but MaryLu so consciously teaches through her writing that when we let God control our lives, things are not perfect for us, but God will be there for us, carrying us through our difficulties.
I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy Christian Fiction of any kind. You will not be disappointed in either book in this series!
A huge thank you to the author MaryLu for providing me a copy of this book to read and review. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are my own honest opinions.

Format: Paperback
I just love a good, swashbucklin' adventure set on the high seas! Recently, I've found a gem of an author in MaryLu Tyndall. While Surrender the Dawn doesn't spend too much time ship-side, there's still plenty of adventure, tension, and romance packed within these pages. Hold onto your hats--there are rough waters ahead! But rest assured that all will come to a beautiful and satisfying conclusion with Captain Tyndall at the helm!

Cassandra Channing was a really strong character that I grew to respect and admire. She had a pretty big independent streak in her, but if it weren't for that, her family would've suffered much more than they did. Cassandra is what held them together. After getting to know Luke Heaton in Surrender the Heart and again seeing him briefly in Surrender the Night, I was really excited when this book came out. He was a deep character that needed his own story! The things he hid so well behind a smiling face and amiable manner in Surrender the Heart were laid bare in this newest book, Surrender the Dawn. I loved watching Luke grow and change!

With realistic characters, complex situations, and heart-stopping moments, Surrender the Dawn was a very easy read for me. From the first pages, my attention was grabbed and I flew through the book. One of my favorite scenes is probably when Luke and Mr. Crane both had dinner with Cassandra and her family. Oh boy! The banter and insinuations that bounced back and forth had me laughing out loud!

Not only did the storyline and characters hold my attention, but MaryLu's writing style made it easy to get lost in the story. From the difficulty for a woman to hold a business position to the attack on Fort McHenry, she vividly brought the scenes to life and transported me back in time.
