Inhaltsangabe: Book by Tyndall MaryLu
Tyndall writes with passion and intrigue. This book captured me right away and didn't let me go. Adalia is a complex character who could have been even better developed. After being a slave for 7 years she transitions into the regular world with unbelievable ease. Morgan is both likeable and loathe worthy. The connection between the two is passionate and life-altering. While I had my eye rolling moments when the plot was so predictable I also had my "ah" moments and I really enjoyed this read. Tyndall is growing in depth as an author and I look forward to more from her. The view from a slave's perspective is particularly intriguing. Reading of life in Charleston in the early 1800's was very interesting. A good read that I recommend! --Melissa MacDonald"Random Refreshing Reviews" (05/03/2012)
MaryLu has created a masterpiece that not only sweeps you away to the glamour of Charleston before the Civil War, she also takes your breathe away with the descriptions of the horrors of slavery. She paints the true picture of how slavery destroys lives, be it a person enslaved in physical bonds or being enslaved to a life of riches that brings nothing but misery. She also shows God's faithfulness to us even when we let the things in life pull us away from Him.
MaryLu once again has woven a story that will not be forgotten in my mind for a long time and for all you ladies like me that love pirates let me say MaryLu did not forget us, so be prepared to swoon!--Teresa Mathews (05/03/2012)
One can expect two things when they pick up a MaryLu Tyndall novel--endearing characters and a plot that sweeps you away. Hidden within the entertainment is a spiritual message that whispers to the corners of your soul. Give yourself a treat by losing yourself in one of her enchanting stories.
Kim Vogel Sawyer--Bestselling author of "My Heart Remembers"
MaryLy Tyndall is a wonderful author with deep faith and the ability to write a novel to include the power of prayer and the amazing strength we have as a child of God. Her books are encouraging, challenging and thought-provoking. Not to mention full of adventure! The characters are very real and it is easy to relate to their feelings. As the reader, you will laugh and cry with them as they discover that their point of view might jaded. We walk with them as they learn more about people and we rejoice as they allow God to touch their hearts. This is a well-written story that will open your eyes to history and will challenge you to see things from a new perspective. This book is another incredible story from one of my favorite authors!--Jenilee Goodwin"Our Goodwin Journey" (05/07/2012)
4 1/2 Star Review & Top Pick from "Romantic Times"--You'll be instantly transported to the sights, sounds, and smells of 1812 Charleston, S.C., in Tyndall's latest. Adalia, Morgan and their friends come alive, and you will experience their joys and sadness along with them. It will take a moment to remember this is 2012, not 1812, when you put the book down. --;/div>--Cheryl Hanson"Romantic Times" (06/21/2012)
"Veil of Pearls" by MaryLu Tyndall is a wonderfully complex, romantic love story about forbidden love and racial prejudice. At the heart of the tale is a strong, courageous woman who risks all for love. It is a poignant portrayal of the prejudices of slavery and its effect on white and black people alike. The characters have depth; Morgan and Adalia both experience inner struggles to shed their past. This is an enduring novel of great depth. Beautifully written, it explores how far the human spirit will journey for freedom and love. This story was a real pleasure to read. Highly recommended. --Mirella Patzer"Historical Novel Review" (07/04/2012)
The author takes on a generational social issue and tackles it beautifully in "Veil of Pearls." I simply could not stop reading, the characters were so charming, and the plot kept getting thicker!--Kalyn Comings"Words with Books" (06/26/2012)
I loved this story of opposite worlds colliding, and it was the first novel from the author that I had read. Based on the writing skill demonstrated here, it won't be my last. Highly recommended!--Marie Burton"Burton Book Review" (07/06/2012)
A well written, jaw dropping, enlightening, frustrating, on the edge of your seat read. I'll have to ponder on this review. It must be worthy of this read. I LOVED it!--Tawana Faciane"GoodReads" (07/08/2012)
Veil of Pearls is beautiful. It is a magnificent love story that manages to make your heart ache and sing in one sitting. It takes an unflinching look at the realities of slavery and the assumptions of its morality and permanence present at that time.--Farrah Sayyed"Imagine a World" (05/31/2012)
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 myself easily absorbed in the story and it didn't 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.--Jen Whitney"Radiant Lit" (08/06/2012)
Veil of Pearls is much more than a historical romance. It is a love story with wonderful depth and a reflection of real-life society. The characters are deeply human. They are flawed and imperfect. But they are likeable. You will find yourself cheering for both Adalia and Morgan, hoping for them to find happiness together and within themselves. --Helena Frank"Romantid Historical Lovers" (08/13/2012)
MaryLu Tyndall has given me one of the best books she's ever written. After several years of waiting, she has given me what I've been waiting for, a book that makes me remember why I love her as an author so much. If I have to wait several more years to get a book this good or better from her again, I will do it, but I feel like she has found her niche and will stay in it. I have loved seeing her improve and grow as an author and look forward to watching her grow and improve more.--Danyelle Hunnicutt"The Christian Manifesto" (08/02/2012)
Wow! I have ready many of MaryLu Tyndall's books, but Veil of Pearls is by far the best! MaryLu Tyndall is a Christian writer, so the reviews bashing the Christian theme throughout the book are really silly. This book is not preachy. It is an addictive, inspiring read that I recommend to all historical romance lovers.--Stephanie Rollins"Book Reviews R US" (10/20/2012)

What a riveting plot! From the very first page I was invested in Adalia's story and sympathetic to her situation. The characters were very well written and complex, I completely understood why they did what they did and the struggles that they had to overcome and the dangers they faced.--Faith Oygard"NetGalley" (07/01/2013)
MaryLu Tyndall can bring a character, a scene, a setting to life as few others can. In a few, well-placed words, she sweeps her readers into another time and place, transporting them from their own life into that of someone they might never otherwise have thought about, let alone taken the time to get to know. "Veil of Pearls" is no exception. This is more than just a nice historical romance. This is a story that will prick your heart and call you to examine your own conscience, as the heroine asks herself just how far she is willing to go to please the man she loves. Will she betray her roots, her ancestors...her very faith...to keep from losing the one who has captured her heart and introduced her to a life she never imagined possible? Aren't we, as readers, tempted to do something similar at times? MaryLu Tyndall does more than entertain us in this well-written novel; she challenges us...and I applaud her for that.

Oh my! Seldom has my heart ached more at the turn of a last page. MaryLu Tyndall is simply one of the best in Christian romance today and "Veil of Pearls," her finest work yet. A pearl beyond compare, this is a love story that transcends era and class to race your heart and soothe your soul, leaving you breathless and longing for more. Absolutely one of my favorite reads ever!

A light historical that doesn't weigh the reader down with too many historical references, this novel has a familiar fairy-tale feel that brings a smile. "Veil of Pearls" is something of a "Cinderella" story that, while it doesn't necessarily land the Prince and his True Love in the castle, ends with them heirs to their own humble kingdom just the same.--Serena Chase"USA Today s Happy Ever After" (07/24/2012)"
This is a thought-provoking read about the perils of slavery. Tyndall doesn't just write about human slavery but how we are all slaves to something in our lives. We are slaves to our positions in society, to our looks, to our money. Not surprisingly, Tyndall portrays these slaves as the non-Christians in her book. It's an interesting thought and perhaps we need to take a look at ourselves and our own lives.
Ultimately, although this is a book about slavery it comes across as a swash-buckling romance with hints of "Pretty Woman," "My Fair Lady" and "Pirates of the Caribbean." The opening description of Althea's escape hooks the reader and the novel is a pleasant enough way to pass an afternoon.--Sally McComb"Proverbial Reads" (07/25/2012)
