Forsaken Dreams by MaryLu Tyndall ~ Review

Forsaken Dreams (Escape to Paradise, #1)Lucie's Review: 

A dramatic and action filled adventure, where everything that can possibly go wrong seems to go wrong...Especially for poor Eliza.

All Eliza wanted was a fresh start, where no one knows of her past.
Colonel Blake Wallace also wants to escape his past, and his mission is to start a new colonization in Brazil. He chooses people from all walks of life, who can work to together to form a tight knit community away from the Northern influence and oppression. Blake chooses Eliza for his vision because of her experience nursing during the war, but Eliza knows that if her were to discover her secret, everything would come down in shambles.

Eliza is a very headstrong and likable character. Even in the midst of her own personal agony she reaches out to those around her, and cares for those who are hurt or ill. She also recognizes her own struggles and weaknesses, and the more her faith is tested the more she grows in it.

Blake is something of a tragic hero, torn between what his head is telling him and what his heart wants.

This book plunges right into the action, and keeps up a fast pace throughout, there are many plot twists, and the story follows various storylines, with plenty of secrets to be discovered. The setting was simply gorgeous with the lush descriptions of Brazil. I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading the next one in the series.
