Abandoned Memories ~ Review

Abandoned Memories
Escape to Paradise Book 3
By MaryLu Tyndale

A darkness seems to have taken a hold on colony of New Hope.  A darkness that is bringing visions - visions that are memories from the past - memories of pain and shame.

Abandoned Memories is the final book in the Escape to Paradise series and everything is about to culminate as the colonists must face their pasts and the secrets they are keeping.  Because until they confront their pasts and accept God's forgiveness they will not survive what is to come.

Not to give away too much this is an interesting story which is a mix of genres.  There is romance, history, and a touch of the supernatural that blends into an engaging and intriguing story.

This book focuses mainly on the back stories of Angeline Moore and James Gallaway.  And as the story progresses we see how the lives of the six main characters of this series are intertwined in ways that they never knew nor suspected.

If you want to just escape within the pages of a book you just might want to pick up Abandoned Memories.  It will make for a great weekend getaway.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher through BookFun/TBCN in exchange for my honest review.


About the Book:

Something sinister lurks in the lush Brazilian jungle. . . .

It is 1866 and the fledgling Confederate colony of New Hope is Angeline Moore’s last chance at a normal life. Running from the law, she longs to make a fresh start in this new Southern Utopia. But a series of strange disasters threaten to destroy everything the colonists have worked for, and strange visions threaten to reveal a past Angeline is desperate to hide.

James Callaway failed at both doctoring and preaching, but he hopes that his move to Brazil will give him another chance to become the spiritual leader he so desires. He longs to create a world free from the immorality that plagued every street corner back home and ruined his life. And he believes Angeline is just the sort of refined woman he needs to keep him on the right track.

But something is amiss in New Hope: haunting visions, the discovery of crypts beneath an ancient temple, and an archaic Hebrew book, set the colonists’ fears on edge. When one of their own is murdered, a series of disasters leads them to believe God has brought them to Brazil to defeat an evil that, if unleashed, could wreak havoc on the entire world.
