Elusive Hope - Escape to Paradise Series Book Two
In a colony named New Hope, while their friends are seeking a Southern utopia. . . .
Hayden is seeking revenge. Relentlessly.
After years of all but selling his soul to track down his scoundrel of a father, Hayden Gale discovers his search must continue in South America, where his father is reported to be helping colonize Brazil. Hayden has nothing more to lose, certainly not a good reputation, and vows to keep pursuing--at any cost--the vile man who he believes killed his mother.
Magnolia is seeking a way out. Desperately.
She’s in the jungles of Brazil against her will, but what choice does Magnolia Scott have? Her father insisted on uprooting their family to escape the uncertainty of Southern life after the Civil War. But how will she survive without all she holds dear—wealthy suitors, beautiful clothes, summer balls, and slaves waiting on her every whim? She vows to find a way to get back home—and attaches herself to handsome Hayden Gale.
As they journey toward Rio de Janeiro, they both seek to use the other for their own purposes. Deceptively. Falling in love was never part of their plans. . . .
I loved this book and cannot wait to read book 3 in this series... There is adventure, revenge, deception, strange visions, a pagan temple with mysteries and unknown danger, and love... My favorite part was the mirror that reflected the state of Magnolia's soul. What would I see if I looked in a mirror and it reflected my inner self- would it be beautiful or ugly?
I recommend this book, like all of MaryLu Tyndalls's books, because it is full of adventure and romance! And like all of her books woven throughout the story is God's truth!
:) I love the reference to the Maiden and the Frog as Magnolia and Hayden interacted throughout the story!:)
