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?
MaryLu Tyndall never fails to provide a rip-roaring adventure tangled with an ardent love story and the joy of faith renewed. The Blue Enchantress continues that tradition with the story of Hope Westcott, a woman desperate for love and acceptance but searching in the wrong places and Nathanial Mason, upright and determined to prove his worth. I have to admit Hope was a difficult character to love in the first half of the book but as her past is revealed, understanding and empathy grows. I had no such difficulties with Nathaniel ~ MaryLu knows how to create an appealing hero! The Blue Enchantress will sweep you away to another time and place, leaving you perfectly satisfied.
