Elusive Hope: Escape to Paradise (Book 2)

By MaryLu Tyndall


Embark on an exotic adventure in Book 2 of the Escape to Paradise series from bestselling author MaryLu Tyndall.

In a colony named New Hope, while their friends are seeking a Southern utopia. . . .

Hayden is seeking revenge. Relentlessly.
After years of all but selling his soul to track down his scoundrel of a father, Hayden Gale discovers his search must continue in South America, where his father is reported to be helping colonize Brazil. Hayden has nothing more to lose, certainly not a good reputation, and vows to keep pursuing--at any cost--the vile man who he believes killed his mother.

Magnolia is seeking a way out. Desperately.
She’s in the jungles of Brazil against her will, but what choice does Magnolia Scott have? Her father insisted on uprooting their family to escape the uncertainty of Southern life after the Civil War. But how will she survive without all she holds dear—wealthy suitors, beautiful clothes, summer balls, and slaves waiting on her every whim? She vows to find a way to get back home—and attaches herself to handsome Hayden Gale.

As they journey toward Rio de Janeiro, they both seek to use the other for their own purposes. Deceptively. Falling in love was never part of their plans. . . .

Book Takeaway:

There are many takeaways: Man may plan his steps, but God directs his path, A good heart is far more beautiful than outward appearance, bad parenting, revenge, a conman who gets caught in his own con, but ultimately it's that God loves us beyond measure, no matter the bad things we have done.

Why the author wrote this book:

The heroins has been told that her only value in life is her beauty. I believe so many young women grow up in our culture today placing too much emphasis on their outward appearance. Through the course of the story, I wanted to show how unimportant appearance is to God and how a kind heart is much more beautiful.
