ABOUT THE BOOK
New from Award-winning author, MaryLu Tyndall, a Time-Slip Novel!
A love story that spans the ages…
A woman with a past searching for pirate treasure
A pious professor seeking worldly recognition
And an historic pirate who brings them together.
The only thing Lexie’s mother left her after her death was a folder full of ancient letters and an old coin. Determined to remove the curse of poverty and crime from her family’s past, Lexie sets off to Charleston, S.C. to find the mythical treasure of Stede Bonnet.
Professor Barret Johnson represents everything Lexie hates. Born to wealth and privilege, Barret’s family are pillars of the community, successful, educated, Christians who never suffered a day in their lives. Yet she has no choice but to allow him to help her decipher the letters.
As the couple read each letter, we are transported into the past where we follow the adventures of Stede Bonnet from his start in Barbados, through each success and failure, and his eventual connection with Blackbeard himself.
Lexie discovers a kindred spirit in her ancestor, Bonnet, and lessons learned from the past soon drift into the present. But someone is after the letters, and soon Barret and Lexie find themselves in grave danger. They must figure out the puzzle Bonnet left them and retrieve the treasure before whoever is after them gets desperate enough to end their lives.
I'm giving this book five stars because this story is so beautiful!
Your heart will break for these people as the author tells their story and I learned quite a lot about Bonnet.
You know you're getting a treat when this author publishes a book because I don't see one that often from her.
Her writing is excellent! Her stories are so wonderful that they will draw you in in a second!
I finished this book in a couple of hours. I couldn't put it down!
You know, a thought accured to me while I was reading this book.
Bonnet came across to me as snooty and thought he was absolutely perfect which I disagreed with.
I didn't like the way he looked down on his crew or judged others beneath him.
Made me sad for him.
The greatest treasure anyone can have is with Jesus Christ and best of all, it's free. All you need to do is ask and believe.
Lexie, I can relate too in many ways. I liked her immensely because she's simply your down to earth person. She's like me. She wears her heart on her sleeve.
I love the inspiration verses that are in this story. They are gentle reminders that when we go astray there are consequences in the choices we make.
I truly loved and enjoyed this story. I wished that it didn't end too soon. I can't wait to see what she comes out with next.
My thanks for a copy of this book.
I was NOT required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
