My review of The Restitution by M.L. Tyndall

From the Publisher:

Lady Isabel Ashton, scorned by society after the birth of her illegitimate child, longs to regain wealth and position-despite Christ's call on her heart. But when her son is kidnapped, she's forced to seek the aid of the man who pirated her purity. How far will Isabel go to save her child and redeem her honor?

Captain Kent Carlton, desperate to win the heart of the woman he once ravished, finds himself battling jealousy as well as the sea. Can a penniless pirate capture the love he so urgently desires, or will the lady seek her safe harbor in another man's arms?

My review:

All of the books in the Legacy of the King's Pirates series have been awesome, but this story was probably the best of them all. It's a difficult task to take someone who was so unlikeable in previous books - Captain Carlton - and make him someone you want to see Lady Ashton choose to love and spend the rest of her life with. The author has such rich, emotional characters and so much depth to her stories that it's hard to not feel sad when the story ends. I enjoyed this novel to the last page, because when it comes to torturing her characters, M.L. Tyndall is the queen of tension. The Restitution was riveting.

I also loved how Tyndall created pirate cuss words without having the characters actually swear. Her skill with the English language and her ability to describe things is incredible. This is an author who puts you in every scene--from the stench of the filth inside the ship to the hair-raising fear experienced by the characters. And the faith element was once again believable. There is no easy faith on pirate ships, but God shows His love in impossible, but true-to-life situations. This is an author I will not miss. Every book she writes is a treasure and I highly recommend them all.

The Restitution
was published by Barbour and released in August 2007.
