MaryLu Tyndall is new writer for me! It was a fairly good storyline, however, I found it too full of overly descriptive words; a Thesaurus now worn out! My college creative writing professor would have slashed with red pencil! Less is more! Strains context of story!
The Falcon and the Sparrow is not part of a series.
Dominique is forced to become a spy for France, in order to save her brother. Chase is still affected by his wife's death and finds it hard to be a father to their son. He also has to battle the advances of Ms. Markham, whom he does not love. Dominique becomes Chase's son's governess.
Chase falls in love with Dominique, and she with him. Chase is informed there might be a spy in his household, which he cannot believe. Chase starts to lay traps to catch the spy. What will he do when he finds out just who the spy is?
I liked this book better than some of MaryLu Tyndall's other books. It's one I really wish had a follow-up book.
This book has a certain flow. It's full of surprises, a very worthwhile read!
I had never read anything by this author and was blown away by her compelling style. I was fascinated from the moment I started reading. Had just read a William Wilberforce bio and was intrigued by the tie-in with characters mentioned in her fictitious story. However, the Spirit-filled foundational truths that shine through this novel are anything but fictional. Wonderful!!
This single novel, "The Falcon and the Sparrow", written by MaryLu Tyndall has lots of action, trickery, and romance. The sparrow, Dominique Dawson, is forced to become a spy for France by them keeping her only brother captured. The falcon, Admiral Chase Randal, needs a governess for his son, William, after three years of his deceased wife, so he can still be out at sea. Dominique becomes the governess William needs, but in the process she is also sent to steal the Admiralty documents from Chase's home in London for the French or the French will execute her brother. As time goes on Dominique learns Chase has lost and turned from God, she grows deeply to care for him to help him see the truth again of God, though as she tries she feels her own faith wavers at what she is doing and seeking guidance from God. Read this wonderful historical fiction novel to see what happens with Dominique and Chase throughout this intense adventure!
