  • Okay, this book was completely amazing from start to finish In fact, of the eight novels of Marylu Tyndall s that I ve read, this is my absolute favorite Not only was there plenty of realism and romance, but there were a lot of insightful comments about faith, slavery, surrendering to God, the meaninglessness of worldly riches, etc But you could also see how difficult it was for some of the characters to forsake the physical comforts in life The lure of wealth is powerful and can snag the hearts [...]

  • Review on review R73K6FVYReview on my blog to be posted 3 18 christianbookshelfreviewsI m not that familiar with MaryLu Tyndall s novels in fact, Veil of Pearls is the first book of hers I ve finished I really enjoyed it and found the theme message of the book great slavery, of all kinds, and being free prejudice etc.Adalia and Morgan, the main characters, were wonderful I especially liked how they both had struggles and things weren t resolved instantly There were a few unsavory characters tha [...]

  • Morgan and Adalia the most ill suited, unlikely couple in Charleston Perhaps they were brought together in order for Adalia to open Morgan s eyes to the horrors of slavery, or was it a romance that bloomed where seeds should not have been sown Was Adalia being deceptive about her heritage or was it because she had become familiar in a society whose perverted ideas said the negroes were worthless She truly felt like she was intruding upon a dream being with Morgan It was like a fairy tale he was [...]

  • I just finished reading Veil of Pearls by MaryLu Tyndall I was swept away from the very first page MaryLu has a way of bringing her characters to life As I read this book, I found myself being transported to the year 1811 The details are so vivid, that you can actually picture the people, places and events This is a very inspiring story about a young slave girl, who finds her freedom, yet she is not completely free She finds herself in a world she s never experienced before, one she only dreamed [...]

  • I picked this up as a Kindle Daily Deal, thinking the story of an escaped slave and a plantation owner s son had to be interesting And it was, especially for this type of romance What I wasn t anticipating was the overly mystical preachiness I ve read some Christian authors who don t rub your face in it, but this one got to be too much for me Too much prayer, rationalizing events to fit them into a certain idea of faith, and even worse magical divine intervention all over the place, including di [...]

  • Is the content of our character really decided by the color of our skin It was back in 1811 Charleston In VEIL OF PEARLS, author MaryLu Tyndall body slams into this sensitive topicd comes out the victor Adalia is a runaway slave, but her skin is so light, no one guesses she s got a black heritage She settles in a town where no one knows her and begins a new life A good life And it worksr awhile Enter the dashing hero, Morgan, who s a wealthy plantation owner s son Conflict fireworks erupt Will A [...]

  • I have been wanting to read this for so long and it was worth the wait This was an excellent book Taking place in 1800 s Charleston, SC, it had a lot to do with slavery A hard subject to tackle but Ms Tyndall handled and delivered it with grace As with most, if not all, of her books, many lessons were learned and souls were changed by accepting the Lord as their savior Of course there was an incredibly sweet romance plot that I think may be one of my favorites It was a hard one to read, thinking [...]

  • This book was incredibly entertaining while also being moving and thought provoking In fact, I m still grappling through one of the themes I m not sure I completely agree with the author on one issue, but that s okay, because great fiction makes us think and come to our own conclusions Overall, I would highly recommend this book.

  • Started out strong and went downhill fast The writing is all over the place and many cliches regarding the villains More like 1.5 stars What could have been a very poignant and emotional read, was dumbed down with one dimensional characters and a major lack of tension and overall plot.A pass.

  • Oh my goodness What a fantastic book My heart just feels so complete after reading the author s afterword I thought this story was well thought of ML Tyndall just does such a great job of writing about being a slave to the things of this world I loved the story of Adalia and Morgan I haven t felt so giddy when reading a book in a long time.

  • This was a wonderful book The struggle to be accepted in a world without Jesus is something we all experience Even if we know Jesus already The way she described the difference in reading the bible and knowing Christ was very well written I recommend this one.

  • welll i have myself to blame as much as the book for the poor review Didn t see the classification as christian so throw that into the mix of a historical romance and i found it to be an odd duck A bit naive a plot development and found the ending hurried and too predictable sorry.

  • This book has been a delightful as well as a dreadful experience It s made me laugh, cry, and sometimes both at once I ve been urged to scream in anger at some pages, and tingled with happiness at others Some pages blurred before my tearful eyes This book has stirred up emotions I didn t think could come from simply reading a book.Yes, I fell in love with the characters as it all unfolded I find it a hard task to at last part with it, but I shall relive it all someday Veil of Pearls does not res [...]

  • This amazing, sweet and adventurous story tackles serious subjects as abuse, harassment, and most importantly, racism It takes place on an exotic island, and features a kind, dashing Mr Darcy type hero and a smart, strong heroine Can t wait to give it a reread

  • As soon as I read the summary of this book, I was instantly intrigued I m pleased to say Tyndall does not disappoint Veil of Pearls meets all my expectations beautifully written with descriptive and evocative language a gripping, compelling plot filled with action and adventure strong characters, some of who we love and others we simply love to hate This book is thoroughly interesting Truly, I enjoy this story so much, I couldn t stop smiling I give Veil of Pearls 4.5 stars.We begin with Althea, [...]
