Something Sinister Lurks In The Lush Brazilian Jungle...

It is 1866 and the fledgling Confederate colony of New Hope is Angeline Moore's last chance at a normal life.  Running from the law, she longs to make a fresh start in this new Southern Utopia.  But a series of strange disasters threatens to destroy everything the colonists have worked for, and strange visions threaten to reveal a past Angeline is desperate to hide.

But something is amiss in New Hope: haunting visions, the discovery of crypts beneath an ancient temple, and an archaic Hebrew book, sets the colonists' fears on edge.  When one of their own is murdered, a series of disasters leads them to believe God has brought them to Brazil to defeat an evil that, if unleashed, could wreak havoc on the entire world.

My Review

“Abandoned Memories” is the final book to the series Escape to Paradise created by MaryLu Tyndall.  This novel had me at the edge of my seat wanting to know what was going to happen next.  Especially, when many different disasters come to destroy the colony New Hope.  Angeline Moore and James Callaway are as well having plenty of haunting visions from their past where they were trying to put behind them.  Both struggle in their own separate ways.  You’ll need to find out if Angeline can truly start a new life in New Hope or be driven to somehow run again from her past, and if James can concur his fear and failures from doctoring and preaching.  Also, will those in New Hope know how to finally put a stop to all the disasters that have been occurring?  See how God works through Angeline, James, and any of the other colonists!  “Abandoned Memories” is bursting with history, mystery, romance, and lots of suspense!

My Review

After three years of publishing the first three books to the series “Legacy of the King’s Pirate” MaryLu Tyndall writes a fourth outstanding swashbuckling novel to this thrilling series, "The Ransom"!  Like her other novels, I had a very hard time putting this novel down.  This exciting adventure takes place in the year 1692 in the meanest city Port Royal, Jamaica.  Secretly, Miss Juliana Dutton is trying to keep her father’s business afloat while her father is extremely ill and her twin brother does nothing to help, but get drunk and gamble away anything.  The son of Merrick and Charlisse Hyde, Alexander Hyde, lives his life by leading a double life to hide certain deep secrets from society.  Will each choice or action Juliana and Alexander take through life either turn against or backfire on them? Only reading through this God-inspiring novel, see how each character comes to grip in trusting in their own path to what will be best for them or if they trust in the Lord to show them their rightful path!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.”
Proverbs 3:5-6
