"Surrender the Night"
MaryLu Tyndall

Surrender to Destiny - Book Two

A Timid American Farm Girl At The Mercy Of The Enemy...  A Wounded British Sailor Driven Into Hiding...  Both Are About To Change The Course Of History Forever.

When British soldiers invade Baltimore amid the War of 1812, Rose McGuire, alone on her family farm, is easy prey for a brutal lieutenant. In the midst of the attack, she's saved by British 2nd Lieutenant Alexander Reed. Will she now have to heal, as well as hide, this enemy soldier?

Rose is having trouble keeping Alex hidden from her family, the townspeople, and the man intent on courting her. Will the discovery of Alex's presence force her to accept an abhorrent proposal?

As their love blooms, trouble looms, for the British are on the move again. This time, their target is Washington DC. Will these young lovers at heart find themselves enemies at war?

My Review

I have very much enjoyed reading MaryLu Tyndall's second book "Surrender the Night" of the "Surrender to Destiny" series! Rose McGuire, an American farm girl, who has lost both of her parents at a young age due to the British heading into war against her country, now alone on her family farm with her uncle and aunt, and now having to deal with a British 2nd Lieutenant who defends her against a brutal lieutenant in the processes of getting injured. Alexander Reed, a British 2nd Lieutenant, who is at war by trying to become a better person where his own family back home will accept him, gets injured by saving Rose from a brutal lieutenant, and as he is healing he tries to keeps his true identity secret.

After reading, "Surrender the Night", I noticed how two people of the opposing countries could really have an effect on the war. Rose is always being so nervous, and very afraid throughout the war that is going on. She does not want to venture outside her farm home area with her aunt to help others in need during the war. She is also having a hard time to trust anyone especially Alex while she treats him of his injury. Alex is trying to make up for his past back in his home country. After he recovers from Rose's treatment of his injury, he is too stubborn and won't go back to where he suppose to go. As time goes on, Rose starts to let go of her fears, and Alex starts to realize what a true family is like and is feeling more at home with Rose's family than his own. See how God works through both Rose and Alex when more trails and dangerous situations arise just as their relationship starts to grow. Just as the first book to this series, “Surrender the Night” is also filled with lots of action, adventure, drama, and a love story that makes you keep on reading to find out more and more!
