LD2Age: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5INCREDIBLE, RIVETING, UNFORGETTABLE SERIES!May 9, 2015LD2Age: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This trilogy is extraordinary! MaryLu Tyndall is an exceptional writer in every way: her settings are vivid and realistic, her characters are multifaceted and relatable, her plots are intricate and utterly intriguing, and her stories are historically accurate. This series is based on part of early American history that I had never heard about before. After the Civil War, many southerners moved to Brazil to build fresh, new colonies unmarred by the destruction of the war. These optimistic people left everything and everyonefull of dreams and hopes, yet completely unaware of what they would face. MaryLu describes what it was like for these pioneers: the wonders, perils, tragedies, triumphs, and inevitable transformation of everyone.
The series is about one group of (fictional) travelers, and each book focuses on certain specific people in the group--we get to know these people deeply and personally. We also watch as the entire colony evolves as they all go through many unexpected and life-altering circumstances. I had to *wait* for each book to come out--oh, so agonizing--so to have the entire trilogy together is a TREAT! I devoured each book as soon as it was released, and even though its been so long since I read them, they left a lasting impression on me. I still remember the characters and struggles they went through, even though I've read countless other books since then (Im a fiction editor). MaryLu is such a masterful, riveting writer! Her books are doubly powerful since they are based on historical facts (she tells us all of the facts she used in each book). These books are part of my permanent "save" collection--very few make this cut of distinction. I HIGHLY recommend this series!

-Surrender The Heart
-Surrender The Night
-Surrender The Dawn by MaryLu Tyndall
In Surrender the Heart, we meet Marianne Denton and Noah Brenin. Marianne and Noah have known each other since their childhood, but don't really like each other much. Even so, to please their parents, they announce their engagement. Circumstances find them captive aboard a British warship. Can they escape? Can they somehow defend their beloved country against this enemy of America? What of the unexpected growing love Marianne and Noah share? What is God's plans for them?
In Surrender the Night, we meet Rose McGuire and British Naval lieutenant Alexander (Alex) Reed. When Rose is assaulted by a British officer, Alex defends her and ends up injured. Rose cares for his injuries and hides him from her family. He is the enemy after all. Can Alex trust this lovely farm girl to keep him safe from her countrymen while he recovers from his wound? If Rose is found out to be harboring an enemy officer, she and her family could be tried for treason. What should she do? Can she trust Alex and can he trust her?
In Surrender the Dawn, we meet Cassandra Channing and privateer Luke Heaton. Left with little money to support her mother and sisters, Cassandra decides to invest with a privateer. However, since she is a woman no one will take her money. Desperate, she seeks out Luke, who is known to be a gambler, womanizer, town ruffian and drunkard, but she has no other choice. Can she trust him with her money or will he take it and gamble it away? As the only caregiver for his younger, crippled brother, this is a chance for Luke to prove he is not a failure as everyone believes, even himself. However, there are those who wish for him to fail and set a trap for him, blackmailing him to supply British ships. They plot against Cassandra as well for personal reasons. With betrayals, blackmailing and dangers of war, can Cassandra and Luke escape with their lives. What of the budding love they now share, will it too be destroyed?
In the Surrender To Destiny Trilogy we read about three American patriotic ladies who stand firm for their country against the British who have invaded their land in 1812. These ladies face many challenges, not only related to the war but personal challenges in love, financial, trust and faith and more. Like MaryLu's other books, this trilogy is filled with adventure, drama and action along with unlikely romances between the main characters. Weaving the love of God for each of them and His redemption throughout the stories and their return to their faith, trusting God to work out each detail of their lives no matter the outcome. I always enjoy reading about our history and how we, as a young nation, fought for our freedoms despite the overwhelming obstacles. Great stories all.
