‘Forsaken Dreams’ is one of Tyndall’s best novels yet! I've always been a big fan of hers and she hasn't disappointed with her latest novel. Eliza is young civil war widow whose deepest desire is to be rid of her shameful past. When she hears of voyage taking Southerners to Brazil to start a colony there, she jumps at the chance. Blake fought in the civil war, but can’t seem to quite get past the fact that he is the lone survivor of his whole family. He arranged the journey to Brazil in an attempt to forget the memories of his life before the war. But, when their secrets get out into the open and strange, explainable things begin to happen on board the ship, will Eliza, Blake, and the rest of the party going to Brazil be able to make it, or will they die trying? This book is definitely one of Tyndall’s best yet. She weaves an amazing tale of hope, fear, love, and faith in ‘Forsaken Dreams’ that you are not going to want to miss! I would recommend this book for everyone ages 14 and up.
