Charity's Cross

"Charity's Cross"
MaryLu Tyndall
Charles Towne Belles - Book Four

Suspected of killing her husband, Charity Westcott flees on the first ship out of Portsmouth, England heading for the colonies. Loathing all men after her abusive marriage, she hopes to reunite with her family in Charles Towne, but the ship’s destination is Nassau. When she spots her husband’s brother, who is intent on seeing her hang, boarding her ship, she jumps overboard.

Elias Dutton, missionary and son of the famous pirate, Rowan Dutton, must get to Barbados as soon as possible. His sister is in danger, and his parents have charged him with her safety. He cannot let them down—again. But after rescuing a madcap woman from the bay, he now finds himself tricked into masquerading as her husband so they both can procure passage to Barbados.

Pirates, storms, shipwreck and betrayal threaten to delay the couple in their journey even as sparks fly between them. With her brother-in-law in fast pursuit, the last thing Charity wants is help from a man, especially a religious one, but she has no choice. After Elias’ heart was broken by a sordid woman who nearly ruined his life, he seeks a godly woman pure as the virgin sands of the Caribbean. He believes he has found such a woman in Charity. Until he discovers she is a murderer and is now faced with two choices: letting her go or turning her in to the authorities.

My Review

What a beautiful well written novel MaryLu Tyndall has written, “Charity’s Cross”!  I do not know where to begin describing how detailed or what events took place.  Throughout the whole novel I was always wondering what was going to happen to Charity Westcott, whether her husband’s brother was going to capture her all the way to if she would ever find a way back home to Charles Towne with getting help from Elias Dutton.  I really enjoyed where Charity and Elias go throughout their journey where telling the truth and trusting in God plays out.  Will Charity ever tell the truth to Elias?  Will Charity ever trust and believe in God for what He has planned for her?  On a last note, I really enjoyed how MaryLu Tyndall pulled characters and background history from “Legacy of the King’s Pirate” series into “Charity’s Cross”! A wonderful historical inspirational romance novel to read, makes me want to read all over again.
