Romance and Valor in "Surrender the Night" by MaryLu Tyndall (review)

“Surrender the Night” swept me away on a tide of romance, valor and faith against the backdrop of the dramatic war of 1812.

When I started the book one night, I told myself only ‘one’ chapter. Yeah…right. This book begins immediately with little time to think of anything else. I love the depth of the characters. Rose’s fear claims her spirit, but not her strength, though she doesn’t believe in herself. Watching her bloom like the flower of her name carries great weight in the novel.

Alex Reed is an exceptional hero. My goodness, he took my breath and he just might have a run for one of my favorite heroes in MaryLu’s books. His valor and the depths of his journey blended with perfect tapestry into Rose’s journey.

But the icing of the story was the romance. As it blossomed I held my breath. Every story is predicable, but it’s how you get there that makes it UNpredictable. This is one such story. The twists and turns, the beauty of the prose, the snappiness of the dialogue, the setting of the war of 1812, all combines into a tantalizing work of fiction.

I loved this book, it has a great faith message sure to speak to any heart and a romance for every hopeless romantic’s heart. Definitely a favorite of my MaryLu Tyndall collection!

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the author for my copy to review.
