- Full of intrigue and romance :) by sarahjmcb on 6/26/13
Forsaken Dreams is an awesome read! It follows the story of a group of southerners traveling to Brazil on the ship NewHope after the Civil War has ended. Their homes being destroyed and ruled over by the Union army, they take off in search of a new hope and a new land to call home. Their journey is filled with strange and scary illnesses, storms, attacks, and betrayal. And there were so many times I wanted to shout at one character or another, What are you doing?! No, don't do that! Tell him the truth! Tell her what's going on! Ahh!! With two main characters and so many supporting ones, there was always a clash of minds and sometimes more than that. This book is intriguing, exciting, romantic, and suspenseful from the very first sentence to the very last! I can't wait to read book two in the Escape to Paradise series!!
- Romance and adventure on the high seas by Carole on 6/9/13
Forsaken Dreams, the first book in MaryLu Tyndall's new "Escape to Paradise" series, takes the reader on a romantic seafaring voyage with a group of ex-patriots. Led by Colonel Blake Wallace, their desire is to leave the war-torn South behind and build a utopian society in Brazil. I was intrigued by this little-known piece of history, as well as the story's unique cast of characters.
Colonel Blake Wallace has seen enough death to last a lifetime. Weary and disillusioned, he slumps beneath the weight of defeat and loss. With his entire family murdered by the North and his name appearing on a list of officers wanted for war crimes, Blake organizes a shipload of southerners who, like him, long to escape the horrors of war and start a new life in a verdant land called Brazil.
Eliza Crawford can barely remember the days of her youth spent in opulence and comfort at her Georgian home. She can’t help but wonder how different her life would be had she not met her late husband, Stanton Watts, a general in the Northern army. Now a war widow, Eliza is rejected by both North and South. Desperate to keep her marriage a secret and escape her past and pain, she hopes to start over again in Brazil.
But once the voyage begins, troubles abound. Dangers at sea and enemies from within threaten to keep Blake and Eliza from the new life—and love—they long for.
I'm not a fan of high-seas adventures nor South America as a setting, so it is a tribute to MaryLu's characterization, storytelling, and enthusiasm that I enjoyed Forsaken Dreams so much. The series is based on historical events of Southerners who moved to Brazil after the Civil War, who had nothing left for them at home and hoped to start fresh in a paradise-like environment. . . . As Eliza says to Blake, a place where you can "work hard, reap the fruit of your labors, raise children, and live in peace. Peace from others lording it over you, peace from oppression and hatred."
One of this book's strengths is its rich characterization, a colorful ensemble cast of people with a past they'd like to forget. Blake and Eliza are a good, self-sacrificing couple and make endearing lead characters. Fascinating secondary characters add much depth to this story - a doctor who can't stand the sight of blood, a con man who is almost likeable, a freed slave who is shunned by many of the passengers, and a spoiled southern belle who somewhat redeems herself. I am eager to see how MaryLu develops these characters and others as their pasts and motives are slowly revealed.
Spiritual themes are well developed in this story. After all he had experienced in the war, Blake "decided that either God did not exist or He simply didn't care about the affairs of men." Eliza has grown a lot since her years of youthful rebellion, but she struggles as she faces its consequences and lasting effects. I enjoyed seeing Eliza's sacrificial care of passengers who hated her, and the prayer meeting in the hold of the ship was a highlight.
Since I love cats, I can't fail to mention how much I liked the presence of the little stowaway cat, appropriately named "Stowy."
Forsaken Dreams reaches a satisfying conclusion, but many storylines will be continued in the next book, Elusive Hope, which releases November 2013.
From characterization and plot, to setting and adventure, this is an enjoyable read and I am eager for the next book to be released. Recommended to all fans of inspirational fiction.

- A Historical Romance Masterpiece!! by Vickie McD on 4/18/13
Absolutely fantastic!! Forsaken Dreams is a past-paced historical romance set on the high seas. The hero and heroine are electric and their relationship sizzles, even though it has as many ups and downs as a ship on a tumultuous ocean. The secondary cast adds drama, suspense, and even a sinister element. Nail-biting tension to exquisitely portrayed settings, family tragedies to an hard-won, endearing romance that will stay with you for a long while, this book has it all. You're cheating yourself out of a superb read if you don't pick up a copy of MaryLu Tyndall's Forsaken Dreams.
- Not for the faint of heart! by Alexhss on 4/16/13
She grabs you with the very first sentence then leaves you on the edge of your seat in the first chapter with the knowledge that there are rough seas ahead, both literally and figuratively. Besides the white knuckled, heart racing story, she keeps you entranced with stimulating writing. “He winked above a grin that revealed a jagged row of gray teeth. “ “His body odor alone threatened to stir her breakfast into disorder.” I almost lost mine at the imagery of that alone. Their first glance of Brazil painted a beautiful picture in my mind. “Above, the sun flung glitter over the earth, turning the sea into silvery ribbons and the distant land into shimmering emeralds.”
Who hasn’t dreamed of sailing off on an adventure to an island paradise, but, was it to run away from a secret past or a war torn country? Eliza just wanted to start fresh, where nobody would know her history. Colonel Blake just wanted to escape the memories of death, destruction, and those looking for him. I’m sure none of the passengers on the voyage to Brazil ever dreamed of the trials and dangers that occurred during the trip. Would they even survive and make it to their destination? Will Eliza’s secret keep them apart? If I was Eliza I would have lost my faith and courage long before she did. She gives inspiration to stay strong in my faith!
We all like to think of enemies as physical human beings that you can see or touch. MaryLu reminds us, with phenomenal writing, that there is more out there to be prepared for. I loved the thought provoking storyline and details she writes about. This is thankfully not a fluffy nonsense romance story. I appreciate that MaryLu gives us more to think about!
Secretly, the best part of the whole book is knowing there are more to come in this series! I can’t wait to hear the stories of the special passengers that sailed with Eliza and Blake.
- Excellent story of forgiveness & God's grace by DebbieRW on 4/15/13
MaryLu’s books are the perfect balance of adventure, romance, humor, and drama set in a piece of history. She has not failed to draw me into a book. One thing I enjoy in each book is the characters the readers can relate to. In Forsaken Dreams Eliza is on the run, but just like Jonah, she can’t outrun God. God continues to remind Eliza, and the others on the same voyage, of His presence. She comes to a crossroad. Will she hold onto the bitterness and hurt in her life, or will she take the path of forgiveness, accept God’s gift of grace, and then share that grace with others? Similarly the others on the voyage have set off for Brazil, in anticipation of a fresh start, leaving their pasts behind. However they seem to be fighting the fact that God loves them too much to let them forget their pasts. It’s a reminder to the reader that just like Eliza we can’t move forward without God. It’s a great book, enjoy!

- Thoroughly Enjoyable Tale! by Casey on 4/13/13
A tale of romance, intrigue and God’s truth on the high seas.
The story has a hint of the “Lord of the Flies” simply because our characters are heading for a Utopian promise only to collide against everything *they* believe should be right. But the similarities end there.
The story captured me within the first chapter. It flipped between past and present and I loved the retrospective style of the chapter crafting. It was always very clear which present I was in, but it gave a delightful flavor to the novel that worked so well.
Since the very beginning of Tyndall’s career she has set her books on the seas. Her most recent releases though have been landlubbers, and I have to say it’s great to be back on the open sea. It’s the only way you’re going to get me out there, so as I sailed around the coast with the crew of characters I was taken into a completely different time and place.
Our characters have to come to a new faith and every moment of their journey felt nothing but authentic. The romance was sweet and enticed me to return to the pages over and over again.
A captivating story. Characters that grip your heart to an ending that simply made me sigh in delight. It’s that kind of historical novel that will only get better with subsequent readings. And left opened just enough to have this reader chomping for book #2!
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the author for my copy to review.
- Amazing Adventure! by Katie G. on 4/10/13
‘Forsaken Dreams’ is one of Tyndall’s best novels yet! I’ve always been a big fan of hers and she hasn’t disappointed with her latest novel. Eliza is young civil war widow whose deepest desire is to be rid of her shameful past. When she hears of voyage taking Southerners to Brazil to start a colony there, she jumps at the chance. Blake fought in the civil war, but can’t seem to quite get past the fact that he is the lone survivor of his whole family. He arranged the journey to Brazil in an attempt to forget the memories of his life before the war. But, when their secrets get out into the open and strange, unexplained things begin to happen on board the ship, will Eliza, Blake, and the rest of the party going to Brazil be able to make it, or will they die trying? This book is definitely one of Tyndall’s best yet. She weaves an amazing tale of hope, fear, love, and faith in ‘Forsaken Dreams’ that you are not going to want to miss! I would recommend this book for everyone ages 14 and up.
- A Wonderful Nautical Adventure by Sarah_P on 4/9/13
I really enjoyed this book. There’s an ensemble cast, but they are all written really well! Eliza has a past that, if found out, could make life dangerous for her. Yet she is determined to make a new life for herself so she sets out with this rag-tag group all hoping for a new world.
Along the way they hit problem after problem. Something suspicious is going on and those on the ship are looking for someone to blame. It’s going to get ugly.
I enjoyed this story a lot. I loved the action!! There was always a twist or something new on the horizon to keep you sucked into the story. Each of the characters are richly written with great back stories!
Eliza and Blake have definite chemistry from the beginning. I thought Eliza was wonderfully written. She was strong and brave, while still being so vulnerable and feminine. There were times I was urging Eliza to do sometime and when she didn’t I would groan at the book. I liked how strong Blake was portrayed, yet I honestly wanted to smack him upside the head numerous times. I was yelling at the book at one point and nearly walked away since Blake was not at all acting like I wanted him to. Yep, I get some awkward looks from my family. Overall, this is a wonderful book. Full of twists and turns and I had no idea how it was going to turn out!
I felt like I was sailing on the ship with the crew. I could almost smell the salt water and feel the wind and waves. MaryLu can write an awesome nautical adventure!
- You Will Love This Adventure! by Leahhhh12 on 4/5/13
Forsaken Dreams is an amazing adventure full of trials, love, friendships, and storms. I was swept right into the story when we find the ship, New Hope, in the middle of a storm. We soon learn that this ship is full of Southerners who are on their way to Brazil to begin a new life after the Civil War ended. All of these Southerners are dreaming of a better life and hope to escape the pain of their pasts.
Blake was an officer for the South. He lost everything after the war so he put together a group of people to begin a new colony in Brazil where he hopes to build a new life.
Eliza is a war widow. She worked as a nurse during the war and she is trying to escape her past. Eliza’s deceased husband was a general for the North and she is rejected by both the North and the South, causing her to keep her past a secret from the rest of the passengers.
Most of the passengers are excited to embark on their journey and begin anew. However, they encounter many trials and hardships on the way, causing them to question whether this is what they really want to do. Different enemies try to keep them from their destination, whether those enemies be storms, Yankees, thieves or other kinds of weather.
With different secrets swirling around the ship, it’s hard to keep things hidden. When different passengers find their lives connected through the past, it’s even harder to keep the past in the past. Bitterness will rise as people become prejudiced against each other, and especially Eliza. If their colony is going to thrive, everyone must learn to overcome their bitterness and learn how to forgive.
I have read several of MaryLu Tyndall’s books and have greatly enjoyed each one. Forsaken Dreams was no exception. Each chapter left you with questions that you wanted answers to, so you kept reading, unwilling to put the book down! Just when you think you know what is going to happen or you think everything is going to be resolved, another twist enters the story, sending you on a new surprising path. I really enjoyed the historical part of the book and learning about Confederate soldiers who relocated to Brazil. I never knew about that until I heard about this book and it definitely makes for an interesting story! I thought MaryLu did a great job at capturing the bitterness of the South. I was shocked at how bitter and angry the Southerners could be in this book, but we can see that their lives have been turned upside-down and they are very upset about it. Overall, I thought this was a fantastic book. I was sad when it ended but I am happy to know that it is a part of a series and I have the next book to look forward to. I thought the book ended satisfying enough as it leads us into the next book but doesn’t leave us with a huge cliffhanger. As I said before, I loved this book very much and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an adventuresome romance that will sweep them away!
- WOW! What a Story! by AngiOakley on 3/24/13
To say that MaryLu Tyndall's books get better with each release, is an understatement. Forsaken Dreams far exceeded my expectations. Her attention to detail...every description, every thought, every word...draws the reader into the very story that is being told through the eyes of her characters. I loved how she used an actual historical event to base her story around, something she has done before in previous books, which in my opinion really enhances the reality of what people of that time could have gone through. And the fact that she weaves a strong spiritual thread through the story, in my book, is a plus.
The story opens in the year 1866, after the end of the Civil War, and a group of Southerners have embarked upon a journey to a new land, to begin again after losing nearly everything they own. Among them is widow, Eliza Crawford. Her prayer is that by boarding the New Hope, she will be able to keep her past a secret and start over again. What she doesn't count on is ever getting close to anyone ever again, especially the handsome Colonel Blake Wallace.
Colonel Blake Wallace is the epitome of strength and courage, and yet he struggles with the after affects of war. Anxious to get away from all that reminds him of what he went through on the battlefields, he leads this small group of people to Brazil, the place that will become their new homeland. Unfortunately, he is still dogged by continuous nightmares of the hellish war that he survived. While aboard the New Hope, he finds an unlikely friend in the beautiful Eliza Crawford. But will memories of the war be the one thing to keep them from having a true friendship, or maybe even romance?
MaryLu, once again, pens a beautiful story of the importance of forgiveness and God's love for each of us. I give this book five stars and two thumbs up!
- Southern Utopia by MegRog on 3/21/13
In book 1 of the Escape to Paradise series, Forsaken Dreams is full of adventure. Follow Eliza, Blake, and the other characters in love, war, adventure, and the quest for a new life. The story is full of it's share of dangers and enemies. Will love conquer all? Will they come to rely on God more than themselves? This seafaring adventure will keep you moving and strengthen your faith.
- Adventure Galore by Betti on 3/17/13
Put tall ships, the sea, pirates, black magic, unexplained occurances, a little romance and lots of adventure together and you have the beginning of why this book is worth every moment it takes you to read it!
MaryLu Tyndall has done a fabulous job of starting this new series in grand fashion. Escape to Paradise is something we all dream of doing at times, I'm sure. This is the new series starting with this wonderful book, set just after the end of the civil war between the North and the South.
I found myself relating to first one character and then another, even disliking some of those less desirable. A little romance only increased the tension between the main characters, as well as several of the lesser ones.
The overall theme of learning to forgive and trust those whose path had followed a different course, created tension and an unwillingness to put the book down. Learning to follow the still small voice of the Lord is difficult for all of us.
A must read and I am looking forward to the second installment due to come out later this year.
- Great story about our forgotten past by espanrose on 3/10/13
MaryLu Tyndall has created yet another masterpiece! Pick up any book from this author, and you will not be disappointed, but this one is quite a rare treat. Delving into a part of American history that has been all but forgotten, MaryLu weaves a wonderful story richly stepped in History. The Civil War may be one of the most well-known eras of American History, but rarely is it seen with such clarity. Being neither pro-Confederacy nor pro-Union, this story shows the evils of both sides of that war, drawing on the truth that all have sinned, including her protagonists. This book will open your eyes to that era in history, allowing you to glimpse how people thought at that time, rather than just throwing our 21st century beliefs onto that era. But she balances out the truth of the period with the truth of God’s Word. Her characters are forced to face their mistakes, their prejudices, and forced to admit their flaws, especially to themselves. Through the characters of Blake and Eliza, MaryLu allows us to watch as they each have to confront their past demons, and personal prejudices, to come to a point to allow God to become the center of their lives. Full of freedom, faith, and redemption, this book will open your mind, and your heart, to a world long since forgotten, take you on a great adventure, and give you a heartwarming story that shows just how strong true love, and the grace of God, can be.
- Escape To Paradise by Elizabeth on 3/7/13
Let me take you on a seafaring adventure in a brand new series from best selling author MaryLu Tyndall. This book had me drawn in on the first chapter. You think you can maybe stop at the end of a chapter, but when you get there you want to go on...I loved it.
Colonel Blake Wallace, A leader and organizer of the expedition to Brazil and decorated war hero wanted for war crimes by the union and suffers from post traumatic stress disorder. He has seen enough death to last him a life time and is eager to leave his homeland for the pristine shores of Brazil and the prospect of a new utopian community.
Eliza Crawford , Widow, was married to a general in the northern army. Eliza seeks passage on Wallace's ship as a nurse. She is harboring a dirty secret and not being wanted by the south or the north, not even her southern father.
Thoughts of Brazil, of its golden shores, lush jungles and fertile soil, caused tears to flood her eyes once again. Would she be a part of the new world these colonists were building, never have a chance at a new life, a new beginning. Forsaken for one mistake.. Would danger from the seas and man keep them apart from the peace and love of the land they long for ?? " Love does conquer all, " " and good does conquer evil ."
This book was so good i did not want it to end.. If you have, or have not read any of MaryLu Tyndall's books this would be a good one to start on,,, I rated it a five star because it was that good.. Don't forget to pick up the second book in this series November 2013..
- A Great Escape by Natalie on 3/6/13
I am and have always been a fan of MaryLu Tyndall and this book did not change my mind at all. I wasn't sure if she could create another thrilling sea voyage tale, but she has. This book does a great job of showing how we all have our own demons and history of mistakes we would like to run from. However, running is often times not possible. History has a way of catching up and making you face it head on. I enjoyed the mystery tied to each character, which makes me want to read more of this series, and learn how they face their individual pasts. This is a story about trusting God and knowing that His plan is the best plan, and if you have had trouble with that in your own life, this is the book to remind you that letting Him take control is the only way to go. It's romantic, tragic, thrilling and full of hopes and dreams. I give it a thumbs up and am ready for the next one.
- Incredible Adventure! by Stacey on 3/6/13
First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to MaryLu Tyndall and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Forsaken Dreams" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
MaryLu Tyndall’s latest adventure casts a group of Confederates onto the high seas in search of a place to call home where the South can rise again after the Civil War. Eliza Crawford, a war widow and nurse, signed on to the ship bound for Brazil for a fresh start. Because she is the widow of a Union Officer, her Southern family wants nothing to do with her but this Rebel doesn’t belong among the Yankees, either. She’s just hoping she can keep her secret. Colonel Blake Wallace is accused of fighting for the North. But this Confederate officer bears the scars created by Yankee guns and swords. He hates everything having to do with the North.
“Forsaken Dreams” is a breathtaking adventure! MaryLu Tyndall crafts an exciting and thought-provoking tale that transports the reader aboard the ship New Hope sailing to Rio de Janeiro and encountering many thrilling and frightening events. Even though I did become a bit frustrated with the rocky relationship road traveled by Blake and Eliza, the book was immensely enjoyable. It was a difficult book to put down and kept me reading well past bedtime. I am anxiously anticipating future books in this series.
This novel was not merely an entertaining read. It opened my eyes to the climate of our country post Civil War. It also enlightened me on flaws in my own character and Christian walk. As I walked with Eliza through several trials, I realized that I would not be as peaceful or understanding or forgiving as she was. This experience brought me face-to-face with areas of my life where I need to be more like my Savior: slow to anger, abounding in love. I was also convicted of my tendency to ask God to bless my plans rather than asking to desire and do His will. Thanks, MaryLu, for bringing me to life-changing realization with your writing once again. I pray that this book will touch the hearts of everyone who reads it in a similar way.
- Terrific book, excellent read !!! by Bren7Hurley on 3/5/13
“Forsaken Dreams”, Book 1 – by renowned author, MaryLu Tyndall
A brand new series for MaryLu ... this historical-based, fiction romance novel will captivate you from beginning to end !
1866, “somewhere in the Caribbean” ... the characters are aboard the ‘New Hope’ ship (Chpt 1), fighting for their very lives .... as they find themselves caught in a violent and death-defying storm.
The Civil War in the United States has just ended – excruciating and horrendous battles, tortures and murders ... between the North and the South. (* No personal side-taking of History intended here – MaryLu writes this particular story through the eyes of her Southern characters.)
Each is seeking to run away from a past that has left them with various degrees of -- guilt, shame, secrets, and personal losses ... “Jonahs if you will, running from God”.
All wanting/needing to begin life anew, each character ventures on this excursion to the land of Brazil ... for a fresh start, to escape their memories and past haunts – while hoping that no one on this journey will recognize or remember them from Charleston, South Carolina.
On the high seas, they are confronted with – prejudices, jealousy, unforgiveness, hatred, fears, evil, life-and-death situations, thievery, twists and turns at every corner (just when you ‘think’ you know what is about to happen next), and even ... romance.
By the end of Book 1, although MaryLu has revealed “some” of the characters’ personal lives (their secrets, quandries, etc), there are still characters remaining whose lives have yet to unfold -- about their troubled pasts and what each are running from, or, to.
Weaving into this novel, Mrs Tyndall beautifully shares the amazing love of God and His forgiveness, to each and everyone who simply ‘asks Him to’.
“Forsaken Dreams” presents not only intrigue, excitement, drama, mystery, and heartbreak ... but forgiveness, trust, hope, and love as well. You will NOT want to put this book down ! I can highly recommend it... a 5-star rating without question !!!
(Book 2 of this 3-part series, will follow in November 2013.)
- A good time on the high seas by Angela/griperang on 3/5/13
Let's set sail on a journey together to a vast new land and escape the harsh war ridden country that we currently live in. Climb aboard the ship with Colonel Blake Wallace and his crew to see where the sea is going to take us. Are you up for it? I was and I am glad I set sail. Ahoy Matey!
I loved this book and have nothing but good things to say about it. What a fun and safe way to go on a journey to a new and foreign land than through an exciting new book by MaryLu Tyndall. Forsaken Dreams dealt with some real life issues like anxiety, post traumatic stress among others - this is just one of the things that made this book come to life for me. I felt as if I was right there on the ship with the rest of the passengers.
We have the captain who was an officer in the war who is wanting to start life anew and forget the things he saw in the war, an Army nurse of the South named Eliza whose husband was from the North and she holds a secret that if the rest of the passengers find out what it is they may just make her walk the plank. Then there is an array of other passengers that are anyone from plantation owners to freed slaves. Such a mish mash of people to travel with and all looking for the same thing an escape to paradise.
This book has everything from danger and adventure to forgiveness and romance. It is sure to not disappoint any reader who may dive into it. If you have not read any of MaryLu's books yet I suggest you start now with this one. I myself had not read any of her books yet, but I will be on the hunt for all of her books now. To me this book is a good one for all historical fiction and Christian fiction fans alike. I am going to be on pins and needles waiting for book two to come out.
