The Blue Enchantress

By MaryLu Tyndall


Still grieving the loss of her mother—and private tragedies of her own—Hope Westcott plays the part of a dutiful admiral’s daughter. But longing for the love and acceptance she never felt at home, Hope plunges into Charles Towne society. . . and an illicit affair with Lord Falkland.

For Captain Nathaniel Mason, wealth means security, so he is determined to build his shipping business—ignoring God’s call on his life to become an impoverished pastor. He also ignores his attraction to the frivolous, vain Hope Westcott.

Hope’s adventure seeking lands her in the hands of an unscrupulous ship captain who wants to sell her to the highest bidder. When Nathaniel sees Hope on the auction block, will he listen to God and sacrifice his ship, cargo, and security to save her?

From the Carolina Coast to the Caribbean, through stormy seas and shipwreck, can Hope and Nathaniel put aside their painful pasts, listen to God’s voice, and find true love and acceptance?

Book Takeaway:

Don't waste your time worrying about an outward beauty that will fade. God is the only one who can cleanse your heart and create an inward character that is beautiful and that will attract the right kind of love.

Why the author wrote this book:

Our culture today places too much emphasis on a woman's appearance, so much so that many girls believe their only value comes in their outward beauty and consequently, they spend tons of money and time fretting over the way they look and then they use their looks to attract the wrong kind of attention. This is the story of a woman very much like that. She has suffered many injustices in her childhood and consequently, she is looking for love in "all the wrong places". I wanted to show through her story how empty and meaningless is the so called love the world offers that is only surface deep and how inward beauty far surpasses outward beauty in its quality, longevity and in the way it attracts true love.


"Intriguing heart-and-soul characters, swashbuckling adventure and heart-fluttering romance put a gust of wind in your sails in The Blue Enchantress, a treasure trove of inspiration and fun."
