Product Description

2006 Christy Award Nominee!

The Redemption is a rousing pirate adventure filled with sea battles, chases, arrests, and betrayal. Tyndall expertly interweaves history with fiction to create a spellbinding tale any lover of pirate romance will enjoy. Cindy Vallar – Editor Pirates and Privateers

Charlisse Bristol sets off on a voyage in search of a father she never knew, only to become shipwrecked on an island. She longs for a father’s love to fill the emptiness in her soul from an abusive childhood, but resigns herself to a lonely death of starvation. Her salvation comes in the form of a band of pirates and their fierce, enigmatic leader, Captain Merrick.

The last thing Merrick expected to find in the middle of the Caribbean was a beautiful maiden. Now he is burdened with the task of not only protecting her from his crew, but from himself. A recent convert to Christianity, Merrick is haunted by a sordid past while he struggles to become a better man and accepts a mission from God to hunt down the most vicious pirates on the Caribbean.

Charlisse can make no sense of Captain Merrick. A pirate who prays and drinks rum? Breaking her vow to never trust any man, she finds herself falling for the pirate/priest, who more than once risks his life to save her. When she confides in him her quest to find her father, Merrick agrees to help. What he doesn’t realize is Charlisse’s father is the ruthless Edward the Terror, the one man Merrick has vowed to hunt down and kill.

Evil forces are at work against Charlisse and Merrick: enemies, battles, imprisonment, jealousy, and betrayal, all threaten to destroy not only their new found romance but their very lives. It will take a miracle—or several—for either of them to survive.

M. L. Tyndall has written a fascinating story that rivals Pirates of the Caribbean, and Captain Merrick is giving Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) a run for his money, too! I highly recommend this well-written, high-seas novel that dares anyone to label it as merely just another romance. Sherri Myers, Romance Junkies

Before I begin, I want to mention that I do not normally read romances.Most romances are too smutty for my taste, or too formulaic. The last one I read was about five years ago, a Nicholas Sparks novel called A Bend in the Road, and afterward, I only regretted the several hours of my life that were now irretrievably lost with so little return value. In general when it comes to fiction, I favour fantasy (mostly classic stuff that has stood the test of time--I am currently reading Robert Jordan), classic novels (think Jane Austen, Mark Twain, Danial Dafoe, and other long-dead literary greats), and if it is a modern novel then I prefer stories where there is a little mystery and a lot of personal growth on the part of the main character.

Ironically, I also tend to stay away from Christian romance novels, because although the ones I have experienced have all been clean, they have also been a little too... tame? Bland? I don't know... Unless we are talking about a romance that takes place in the context of biblical history. I have read several novels based on Esther, as well as Leah, and other women of the Bible where romance was a key part of the plotline. Don't ask me why... this post is to analyze someone's book, not the strange workings of my own brain.

From the first pixelated page, The Redemption had me hooked. There was danger, suspense, personal growth, and yes, a little mystery.

Charlisse is a realistic, struggling heroine, who didn't magically figure out how to survive on her own (which is a positive for me) when the ship she had bought passage on was destroyed in a storm and she was left alone on a tropical island.

A great book with a great story line. It is, however, a christian book which in itself I don't have a problem with, but when there is too many sermons, I need to skip. The ending was a little weak. On the other side, it was very well written and clean, and it had enough villains and twists to make it a very enjoyable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars who'd have thought of a Christian pirate? Aug. 31 2014

Pirates and romance! I love this new author. A Christian pirate, a lady searching for her father, the open seas, and a romance. It's not great writing but it is good, clean fun. I also learned some historical trivia too. I plan to read many more of Ms Tyndell' s books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book twice in the same week May 14 2014
By Sheri Salatin - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is one of those books that I could not put down. I originally picked up a copy from our local library. It looked different. Something new. Pirates, adventure, romance and all with a Christian message? I was intrigued.

Wow! I was hooked from the very first chapter. I could not put the book down! Read the whole thing in one sitting and then drove back to the library to check out the rest of the books in the series. Read them all. Loved them all. Bought them all.

I found myself so sad when I closed the cover on book #3 that I decided to start them all over again. This time, I savored the stories. :) To this day, I count this series as one of my all time favorite.

They're different. They're exciting. They're romantic. They're faith-based.

Let me close with this. If you're on the fence about them and not sure, try reading a sample. I'll bet you get hooked too. :)

And now there is a Book #4!

4.0 out of 5 stars Do you enjoy a great pirate adventure/love story? Then you'll love "The Redemption"... June 22 2014
By Kandy H. Bennett - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm reading "The Reliance" right now, the 2nd book of this trilogy. Does that tell you how much I enjoyed "The Redemption"? MaryLu Tyndall writes in such a way that you smell, taste, feel, hear, and see the Caribbean Islands and the adventure. I enjoyed her twist of the usual plot ... the pirate is the one who shows his very human struggle with his hope and faith in God. Refreshing!

The characters are very real, and I wish I would have found this book when it first came out! Ready to transport back into the days of pirates and high seas adventure? Read on...

Never would I have dreamed that someone could make a Christian pirate story believable and hold my interest but it happened. The story had me hooked from the beginning. What I really love about Tyndall's writing is that she makes her characters real she shows their weaknesses and how everyone struggles with sin but their is always the good news of Jesus Christ and his forgiveness. When you start the story you won't want to put it down. I'm already to start reading book 2 in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars First and the best! May 15 2014
By Rachel A. Cook - Published on
Format: Paperback
Humor, adventure, pain, romance, history—all wrapped into a novel named The Redemption.

Lady Charlisse Bristol is a young woman plagued with the death of her mother, the absence of her father, and the abuse of her uncle. Charlisse manages to escape her uncle to search for her father, only to end up on a sinking ship in the middle of the ocean. After surviving the ordeal, Charlisse ends up stranded on an island alone. Until…Captain Edmund Merrick shows up with a pirate crew and a ship needing repair. It is a difficult enough task for handsome, godly Captain Merrick to protect Charlisse against his crew, but his problems are exacerbated by the destructive plans of his arch enemies. There is one amongst the crew who is ready to betray his captain and take Charlisse for himself. Will Charlisse and Merrick survive the battles, betrayal, mutiny, and the law?

This is my favorite of MaryLu Tyndall’s books, and Merrick and Charlisse are my all-time favorite of her characters. The book has heavy topics and answers difficult questions, including the answer to why bad things happen to good people. This book is very special to me because it was filled with scripture and character examples of a life lived for Jesus; it is the book that led me to Jesus.
