I enjoyed this final book in the Escape to Paradise trilogy. It delves deeply into spiritual warfare and how God has a purpose for our lives. It is interesting to see each of the main characters come to the realization that God had brought them to Brazil for a higher purpose that they could have ever imagined.
This book revolves around the on-again, off-again romance between James and Angeline. It is heart-rending to see the two of them trying to deal with their past, as their love for each other grows. Both have much to accept and overcomein themselves and in each other.
I love the addition of the pirates to this novel. They add much color and interest. I am looking forward to reading more books by MaryLu Tyndall.
This was an exciting an emotional finale to the Escape to Paradise series. These are books that, in my opinion, need to be read as a series and in order. Everything really builds up between books into the incredibly dangerous conclusion.
Abandoned Memories deals with spiritual warfare and that is a very important theme in the book. Another over arching theme is the forgiveness of sins that only God can provide. Each of these characters came to mean a lot to me over the course of the three books and it was gratifying to finally get to read James and Angeline's story. The emotions and troubles between the two were very well written and I enjoyed seeing their relationship grow very much.
I loved the first two books in this series, and the third one just blew me away!! I never saw ANY of the plot lines coming, and I had to devour this book until I finished the incredible conclusion! These books really need to be read in order because each one is detailed and personal, and the other books build on the one before. I wish there were more to this series--I fell in love with the characters and their unbelievable struggles to build a new life in a foreign country, facing unexpected tragedies, developing internal strength, and experiencing triumph together. I highly recommend this series!
Abandoned Memories by MaryLu Tyndall is Book 3 in the Escape to Paradise Series. It is definitely a stand alone book, but I highly recommend reading Book 1 & 2 first, you won't be disappointed!
I could not put the book down once I started it...and I most certainly did not want it to end--the recipe for an amazing book.
As the third book in the Escape to Paradise series, this book continues the story of the same characters, bringing to the forefront Angeline Moore and James Callaway, both of whom have dark pasts of their own, who leave the South for Brazil after losing the Civil War...in hopes of a better life. As if the characters and wild jungles are not enough, there are also powerfully evil forces set on destroying the fledgling community and unleashing evil throughout the earth.
If you are looking for action, adventure, mysteries, romance, and good triumphing over evil, this is the most definitely the book you must read. The characters are very likable and very well written, Ms. Tyndall has an amazing way of making you feel as though you are living the book along with the characters. Mary Tyndall is one of my favorites and I look forward to the next adventure!
I was given this book by bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
