Her passion is to write page-turning, romantic adventures that not only entertain but open people's eyes to their God-given potential.

Just when I thought MaryLu could not possibly top her last book, she totally blows me away with another! This book is utterly fantastic, and I had a terrible time putting it down. Not only does the plot surround the hero and heroine, but there are also fascinating subplots involving the secondary characters aboard the ship. ...Very well written with realistic characters, an utterly compelling storyline, and tremendous use of imagery, I can honestly say...MaryLu Tyndall has crafted a masterpiece here! I simply can't wait for Book Two in this series!
MaryLu truly knows how to captivate her readers with her powerful stories of love and forgiveness. In my review of her last novel I wrote that it was MaryLu’s best yet, but I have to say that this new one is even better – if possible! Yes, her writing gets better and better. You won’t be sorry when you pick up a novel by this master storyteller. Highly recommended.
This phenomenal story will have your eyes flying over the pages with its fast-paced action and your pulse galloping as you hold your breath in anticipation. It will have you aching for the characters to have their dreams realized and will easily provoke you to dissolve in a flood of tears. But you will also rejoice in faith, soar in hope, and your heart completely captured with the intensity of love expressed in this dramatic and powerfully emotive tale!
Marylu Tyndall is an incredible author. Her writing is clear, easy to read, realistic and descriptive. She writes in a way that makes me fully believe the story and she always makes me want to sail on a ship! Her ships are romantic, beautiful and exciting. Forsaken Dreams is no exception!
With humor and lightness, Marylu Tyndall addresses deep spiritual truths, personal revelations and relational issues. Challenges to pray, trust God in all things and rely on Him are always evident in her stories!
Forsaken Dreams is a book full of adventure, love, history and plenty of amazing drama!
With each book written, MaryLu Tyndall is unceasing with the way she develops such fascinating characters and a whirlwind of adventure. I've loved every novel of hers so far, and this most recent most of all.
I enjoyed the way MaryLu wrapped history into this story, the rich characters, and the overall story line. If you've read her books before, this is another adventure on the high sea and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
Ms. Tyndall has done it again with "Forsaken Dreams". I would highly recommend this title. I believe this is my favorite so far. But than I enjoy seafaring adventure and all that it entails,the danger,and the romance of it all. A job well done!
This book grabbed my attention from beginning to end. I could not put it down. I knew Marylu was a FANTASTIC writer, but this book has only further shown what an amazing, talented author she is. I, as with all her books have found a renewed faith through her writing. This one especially. Her way of stepping into the character and trying to understand what life would be like for them is nothing short of amazing. She makes the character come alive in a way that many authors before her would have failed at. It is a very good read and I will suggest this book a hundred times over.
Emotional, action-packed, riveting and inspirational are just some of the thoughts I had about this romantic adventure. As always, Ms. Tyndall’s detailed accounting of landscapes, sunrises and sunsets to the inter-workings of a ship of this era are tantalizing keeping you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. Characters’ diverse personalities, skill-sets, strengths and weaknesses are blended well bringing them to life, if only in your imagination.
