Pirates, maidens, and kidnapping, oh my!

If you love exciting pirate adventures, kidnapped young maidens, and a healthy dose of God’s miraculous intervention, this is the book for you. In The Raven Saint, MaryLu Tyndall has written yet another ripping tale of high drama on the high seas. Pure and devout Grace Westcott makes the perfect target for the notorious pirate captain, Rafe Dubois. Here is the story:

Grace Westcott has spent her entire life serving God and helping the poor—not to mention trying to save the souls of her two wayward sisters. But while on an errand of mercy, she is kidnapped by a French mercenary and told she will be sold to a Spanish Don in Columbia. Determined to hold on to her faith and see God in every situation, she believes she must have been sent to help someone find God’s love. But no one will listen to her pleas, warnings, and prayers. When Grace’s situation grows far worse than she could imagine, she is forced to face her own human weaknesses. But she isn’t prepared to face her biggest weakness of all—falling in love with the nefarious captain, Rafe Dubois. Will Grace discover God’s purpose for this harrowing journey? And what will she do when she realizes His purpose for her is not to redeem the captain and his crew, but herself?

I never cease to be amazed by MaryLu’s daring in her stories. She creates compelling characters, forces them to the brink of complete disaster, and then makes their perils even worse! Through many twists and turns, her stories take you on a ride to a more than satisfying finish you won’t want to miss. The Raven Saint is a true delight and will keep you up into the wee hours turning the pages of this terrific book. I highly recommend it!
