This is a secular book with some Scripture scattered throughout; but you need to wade through all sorts of stuff (i.e. violence, seduction, etc.). I definitely would not recommend this book nor would I read any more books by this author. I ended up tossing the book.
MaryLu Tyndall totally captured my attention with this book, The Redemption, the story of a pirate Captain with a new-found faith in God. The once ruthless Edmund Merrick has vowed to rid the seas of the most vicious of pirates that would pillage, plunder, and ravage the very seas which he sails, and bring them to justice. Merrick has his sights set on one man in particularthe fearsome Edward the Terror. But while his ship is grounded on a deserted island for maintenance, Merrick stumbles upon a beautiful woman, half starved, the lone survivor of a sunken ship. He rescues the Lady Charlisse Bristol from her lonely plight on the island, only to have to protect her from his crew. Not to mention he finds himself falling in love with her. What he doesnt know is that there is a connection between the lovely Charlisse and the man whom he hunts and has sworn to capture. The Redemption is a swash-buckling masterpiece filled with adventure, romance, and the wonderful message of Gods love and how it heals all wounds.

Will Edmund help her or does he have his own agenda. The Redemption is a creative, engaging, and swashbuckling, Christian romance that will take your breath away and leave you on your knees.
I'm not the high seas and pirate type of reader but bought all 3 books on a whim. I'm so glad I did since there was great adventure and lots of God references. Frequently problems and complications caused doubts and fear but God's love shines throughout the book. If you like adventure and excitement you will enjoy this series. I love how the titles reflect the faith lesson learned.
MaryLu Tyndall is an amazing writer. In each novel she has written, you can definitely see the hands of God. In the Redemption, you have a story of adventure, love and intrigue. But most of all, you see how God gives us the redemption that we all need in our lives. This is Book One of a trilogy, so you must read all three! I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
