Review

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

Book Description

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.

I have read all of MaryLu Tyndall's books and I cherish them all. She is a fantastic writer who is not afraid to let the power of Christ shine through her work. I have read some Christian fiction that barely has a word about Christ in them, almost as if the writer were afraid to offend the reader. Not this author! No way! She knows that believers go through tough times and spiritual warfare and she portrays this in her work.

This book was, in my opinion, the best of the Surrender to Destiny series. It is set during the war of 1812 in Baltimore and she does a fine job of portraying the history of the time. I love history and she makes it come alive. During the British march on Washington and the battle at Fort McHenry, the author makes you feel as if you are there! There are also some fascinating tidbits that would ruin the reader who hasn't read the book yet, so I'll keep quiet.

Both Cassandra and Luke have turned their backs on God due to circumstances in their lives. But God is right there, ready to welcome them back and even encouraging them through the folks around them. He shows them in many ways that there are no coincidences for the believer in life, but God's hand at work in all things to bring good out of every situation.

There is adventure, excitement, romance and deep spirituality in this book. Tyndall writes mainly pirate books and she is supreme in this field. I felt my heart racing as Luke set out after the British merchant ship to take as a privateer during the war. The descriptions of what is going on are vivid and vibrant, so realistic I almost felt as if I were on the ship with the wind blowing in my face and the sea spray flying up on me!

And Luke Heaton? What can I say about him?

I enjoyed the characters & the author's writing style. However, all three of the books in this series follow the same theme. A woman resists her attraction to a man due to his character. The book unfolds to reveal that he is worth the woman's affections. The two main characters resist their faith in God due to past tragedies. The book unfolds to show them finding their faith again. I found the repetition to be a bit boring & predictable.

What an AMAZING book! "Surrender the Dawn" is the third and final book in the "Surrender to Destiny" series...and, once again, MaryLu Tyndall outdid herself finalizing the series or bringing the series to a close. Each book in this series can be a stand alone BUT they are so much better read as a series. Page by page, chapter by chapter, book by book, Ms. Tyndall kept me captivated with her extraordinary storytelling! This is the second series I've read by MaryLu Tyndall...and it did not disappoint. The only disappointment was that of my hubby because I could not put this series down long enough to cook. lol (I am going to have to be more careful and such, otherwise, he just might take my Kindle from me. lol) Again, AMAZING book...and AMAZING series!!! You will not be disappointed! Not to decide what book or series to start next. :)

I got all of MaryLu Tyndall books and love each one for them - she wrote the best Christian fiction with pirates as the theme and I love them! The focus is always on salvation and that without God as the centre, you cannot succeed. Her books always have the right mix of everything - adventure, passion, romance and many more. Her books and characters are so alive and real that you are so sorry when the book is finished. Long after you finished it you still remember her stories. Surrender the Dawn is no exception. Enough was said already in all the reviews about this story. Now you have to buy it and experience it yourself!
