Book Review: The Blue Enchantress by Marylu Tyndall

Book Description:
Betrayed by the man she longed to marry, Hope Westcott finds herself
on an island in the Caribbean being auctioned off as a slave to the
highest bidder. Raised in an unloving home and after enduring a
difficult childhood, Hope's search for love and self-worth have led her
down a very dangerous path. All she ever wanted was to find true love
and to some day open an orphanage where she could raise children
with all the love she never experienced

as a child. But how can a woman with a sordid past ever hope to run an
orphanage, let alone attract the love of an honorable man? Determined
to overcome the shame of his mother's past, Nathaniel Mason worked
for many years to build his own fleet of merchant ships in an effort to
finally acquire the respect of Charles Towne society. Ignoring the call of
God on his life to become a preacher, he forges ahead with his plans
for success at a distant port in the Caribbean, when he sees a young
lady he knows from Charles Towne being sold as a slave. In an effort to
save Hope, he is forced to sell one of his two ships, only to discover
that her predicament was caused by her own bad behavior. Angry and
determined to rid himself of her as soon as possible, Nathaniel
embarks on a journey that will change the course of his life.

My thoughts:
The Blue Enchantress by Marylu Tyndall was an exciting read. To be honest though, I had a hard time liking the main character, Hope. I understood what the author was trying to portray with her, but she was difficult to like. I appreciated the all the miracles that occurred in this story--emphasizing the power of God. The ending left me hanging and I will be checking out the next book in this series: The Raven Saint.
