About the book:
Embark on a seafaring adventure in a brand-new series from bestselling author MaryLu Tyndall. After witnessing the death and destruction caused by the Civil War, Colonel Blake Wallace is eager to leave his once precious Southern homeland for the pristine shores of Brazil and the prospect of a new utopian community. Widow Eliza Crawford seeks passage on Wallace’s ship harboring a dirty secret—and a blossoming hope for a fresh start. But will dangers from the sea and from man keep them from the peace and love they long for?

A wonderful story that kept me entertained and had me flying through the pages! I loved the characters and enjoyed the plot -- I don't think I've ever read a book quite like this one.
Forsaken Dreams had me rooting for Eliza and Blake, but it seemed like things would never work out for them and so I was nervous for a majority of the story (especially near the end!).
All in all, a great book and I recommend it if you enjoy historical romance with some danger.
