The Raven Saint by M.L. Tyndall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Loved it! The Raven Saint had me from the beginning and I couldn't put the book down. The best in the series. This is why MaryLu Tyndall is one of the greatest authors in my book! If I had to make one silly little complaint, it's the cover again. Grace has long raven hair and green eyes, the publishers missed that one. Okay, on to the review now...
I loved that Grace, the third sister in the Charles Towns Belles series, learned so much in this book about her faith. She was a Christian woman that often admonished others for their choices. After being kidnapped by the French rogue, Rafe Dubois, she felt abandoned by God. She felt sure that she must have done something wrong in His eyes and this was how she was being punished.
As circumstances change over and over aboard the ship, Grace starts to wonder if God sent her on this mission to teach these rogue pirates about their faith and relationship with God. Nearly every soul she comes across either doesn't believe in her God or they are running away from Him. Her biggest challenge is of course, Captain Dubois. While he is mercenary and claims he works for whomever can pay him the most, he has a grand secret. Captain Dubois gives his money to the poor of his home island. Grace is shocked to learn of this and feels that hint of attraction growing more and more as she is aboard his ship.
Captain Dubois had intended to sell Grace to a Spanish man who had a score to settle with her father and Grace was the pawn in that game. The money would be enough to build a hospital on his home island, to save the scores that were dying every day. However Captain Dubois had assumed that Grace Westcott would be a spoiled brat, a shrew. She was everything he had not expected. She was beautiful and strong and his once cold hard was warming at her daily presence. He is cornered into finding where his heart really is, with Grace Westcott or with saving people's lives. Is it possible for both to happen?
Is it possible that God creates miracles? :-)
