Surrender the Heart

By MaryLu Tyndall


On the brink of the War of 1812, Marianne Denton must marry
to unlock her inheritance. Without the money, her mother can't
receive medical care and her sister will be destitute. But Noah
Brenin needs to sail his cargo to England before the war
commences in order to prove his worth to his father and make
enough money so he won't have to marry at all.

Defying his father's wishes, Noah loathes the idea of marrying
a woman he finds plain and pompous. Marianne wants nothing
to do with the rogue who taunted her as a child, yet she must
convince him otherwise or her mother will die.

But when Noah walks out on their engagement party, Marianne
chases him down and ends up on his merchantman out at sea.
The situation worsens when Noah's ship encounters a British
man-of-war and the couple are impressed into the British
navy. While a young lad's prophecy of destiny looms over
them both, Marianne and Noah are forced to face their darkest
fears as they desperately try to find a way to escape and fulfill
their destinies-destinies that could change the course of the
war and history forever.

Book Takeaway:

No matter your insecurities and fears, God has a wonderful destiny for your life. You're here on earth for a reason. Don't let fear or guilt or insecurity rob you of your destiny.

Why the author wrote this book:

While doing some general research, I became fascinated with the War of 1812. Britain had never given up on reacquiring its colonies in America so they bullied us by stealing men off our merchant ships and forcing them into the British Navy. Baltimore became a hot spot for American privateers during the war. It was such an exciting time! Yet, the real purpose I wrote this story was to show that no matter how insignificant you think you are, God can use you to do great things, if you'll just submit to Him and believe Him.
