Editorial Reviews

Tyndall is a talented writer, as she brings to life a time in America's past that divided not only a country but the people as well.

Wow wow wow! I was gripped from the first page and couldn't put it down! You know the book is a great one if you wrestle between not being able to put it down and trying to slow your reading down so that you can savor it longer so the book never ends!! 

Mystery, suspense, and breathtaking romance is what you are in store for if you buy this book!

I enjoy the characters, they are not flawless far from it, but are realistic,enduring, and engaging. This series just gets better!

An intense,emotional but very exciting and satisfying story of love and healing. I would highly recommend especially to historical romance readers and anyone who enjoys an awesome read!! If you have never read one of Ms. Tyndall's books you are in for a real treat, if you have, I need say no more... She is a compassionate,masterful storyteller who draws her readers into her stories as her characters face tragedy,their faith and the power of love.

MaryLu Tyndall delivers a romantic adventure with believable touches of the supernatural in a remote historical setting. As the settlers try to build new lives, Magnolia and Hayden learn that hope can be elusive, unless found in God.

I love how the author digs into the spiritual realm as she enters into the middle of the series. I found myself on the edge of my seat as I was reading this book constantly wondering what was going to happen next.
If you love historical fiction this is a must read series!


ELUSIVE HOPE is an exceptional historical romance. From page one, the reader cannot help but be drawn into pages of this addictive novel. MaryLu Tyndall is an author who provides readers the utmost reading pleasure in how she is able to spin her tale that will quickly wrap its way around anyone's heart. The rich historical detail she blends into her books make for a realistic adventure that will have your heat beating fast. There is no doubt, that MaryLu Tyndall is the Queen of the Historical Romance gene, her endless talent continues to leave me speechless.

    Elusive Hope continues the story of a group of post-Civil War Southerners who have left the United States and relocated to Brazil to begin a new life there. The story centers around Southern belle Magnolia Scott and conman Hayden Gale. Although they come from very different backgrounds, they are both facing personal battles including unresolved conflicts with their fathers.

    As the story progresses Magnolia and Hayden find themselves on a journey—a physical one (through the jungles of Brazil) as well as an emotional and spiritual one.

    MaryLu Tyndall does an excellent job of drawing the reader into the compelling story. As a reader you feel like you are on the journey with Magnolia and Hayden, and you feel their pain and their eventual joy as they discover faith and hope, and the healing power of love and forgiveness.

    I also thoroughly enjoyed how the author wove elements of humor and emotion into a beautiful story of adventure and love and redemption. I highly recommend Elusive Hope!

    A Story of Love and Adventure

    Elusive Hope is the story of spoiled southern belle Magnolia Scott and con man Hayden Gale. Magnolia has been forced by her parents to leave her beloved south and start over in the wilds of Brazil in hopes of securing a rich husband to restore the family fortunes. Hayden is on a mission to find his father and make him pay for walking out on his mother and leaving them destitute while Hayden was still a child. But as Hayden's and Magnolia's paths collide, sparks begin to fly!

    This is a great story of adventure and love as God begins to do a work the hearts and lives of the Colony of New Hope. Marylu Tyndall is a gifted writer who creates interesting characters and story lines. I enjoyed seeing her take a character who I didn't like very much in the beginning and change them into someone I was rooting for. I do feel I should mention that there is a super natural element written into the storyline.

    I was given a copy of the book by The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Elusive Hope: Escape to Paradise (Book 2)

    By: MaryLu Tyndall

    MaryLu writes such wonderful Historical books. Elusive Hope is number 2 in the series. They just get better. Very strong characters. Lots of adventure. This is the story of Hayden and Magnolia. Magnolia daughter to a plantation owner use to getting her way seeks to get what she wants no matter what. Hayden who isn't trust worthy is out to get what he wants these two are using each other to get what they want. Will Hayden and Magnolia get to gather? Will they put their Faith and Hope in Jesus?

    MaryLu has a way of telling a story where there is some adventure and some romance but done in taste ,then she always blends in the Spiritual. I leave this book looking forward to the next.

    Elusive Hope is a continuation of Fallen Dreams. I love this series since they are from the South in the book, about from where I am from :) which always makes it a good read :). Do y'all remember Magnolia Scott? She was that prissy whinny girl from the first book that liked to flirt and decided to try drinking? Yea she's back! lol But she is trying to change, unfortunately her parents don't really approve of this change or condone it. She decides to leave for that fancy pants 'Fiance' She says she has back in the states, but the only person she can find that is going that direction is Hayden Gale. A man she isn't very fond of.

    Hayden Gale, all he is wanting to do is find his Father and have his revenge. It's the only reason for being in Brazil in the first place, Not to babysit some rich spoiled little girl. Until he realizes what he can earn from this 'position'. They both start bluffing each other and using each other on their way back to the states. Little did they know what trials would be waiting for them on the Journey. Or how closely knit their lives truly were.

    *I received my copy from the author for free, but have been in no way told what to say in my review be it positive or negative.
