Veil of Pearls by MaryLu Tyndall

Be swept away by a tale of love, hope, danger and so much more with MaryLu Tyndall's newest book, Veil of Pearls.

Adalia Winston has landed in Charleston, SC in 1811 as not only an immigrant but a runaway slave from Barbados. She has lost everything in her life and comes to America hoping for a future and a life of freedom. Not long after arriving she finds herself employed by a local doctor because of her knowledge of herbal remedies.

Morgan Rutherford, a prominent young man, eyes the young lady and is instantly intrigued and does all he can to get to know her and involve her in her life. Adalia quickly learns that living in his world is a lot harder than she ever imagined and that her past may put them both in trouble. Her heritage and view of slavery may just be the wedge that drives them apart, unless Morgan learns to accept her as she is and turn his back on the family fortune. What will he do and what will happen to Adalia when she is thrown into a very dangerous situation?

I loved this book! I had never read anything from MaryLu Tyndall before but now I know I have to read more of her books.  Everything about this book was fun and entertaining. The twists, the danger, the love! I found my self easily absorbed into the book and it did not take me long to finish at all. I loved Adalia, the courage she demonstrated and the fact that she stuck to what she believed is such a great example for us all. I would highly recommend this book to anyone loving a good historical romance. Way to go MaryLu and 5 Stars to this excellent book!

* I received this book through the publisher and Radiant Lit for the purpose of this review. Thank you!
