My review of Elusive Hope by MaryLu Tyndall
Elusive Hope tells a story of a group of misfits that are trying to form a new colony. It deals with the basic struggles that any group would have when starting a new life together in the middle of nowhere. The only problem is that there is more than just those problems, there is something deeper, much deeper, that lies in the land. The people face a darkness that is there, a spiritual darkness.
The main characters in the book, Magnolia and Hayden, also face many struggles. Magnolia is unhappy with being uprooted from her home and being brought along to start the new colony. She blames her father for taking her away from her comfortable, upper-class life. Magnolia has a hard time dealing with these changes. Hayden is also unhappy with his current situation. While it was his choice to go on the journey with the rest of the group to colonize this new land, he had ulterior motives. His true reason for going to Brazil is to look for his father, who he believes killed his mother. Hayden and Magnolia are each on their own journey, but get thrown together time and again.
Will they find love or will they continue to butt heads at every turn? You will have to read the book to find out!
MaryLu Tyndall has a way of weaving a fun romance into a story. She also captures deep issues and the real life struggles of everyday life. I think you will enjoy the story and I would recommend it!
