Publisher's Summary

Suspected of killing her husband, Charity Westcott flees on the first ship out of Portsmouth, England heading for the colonies. Loathing all men after her abusive marriage, she hopes to reunite with her family in Charles Towne, but the ship ends up in Nassau. When she spots her husband's brother, who is intent on seeing her hang, boarding her ship, she jumps overboard.

Elias Dutton, missionary and son of the famous pirate, Rowan Dutton, must get to Barbados as soon as possible. His sister is in danger, and his parents have charged him with her safety. He cannot let them down again. But after rescuing a madcap woman from the bay, he now finds himself tricked into masquerading as her husband so they both can procure passage to Barbados.

Pirates, storms, shipwreck and betrayal threaten to delay the couple in their journey even as sparks fly between them. With her brother-in-law in fast pursuit, the last thing Charity wants is help from a man, especially a religious one, but she has no choice. After Elias' heart was broken by a sordid woman who nearly ruined his life, he seeks a godly woman pure as the virgin sands of the Caribbean. He believes he has found such a woman in Charity. Until he discovers she is a murderer and is now faced with two choices: letting her go or turning her in to the authorities.

Exciting Story at The Sea

I just bought this book yesterday & have been listening to it all day & all night! I just finished!
I couldn’t stop listening because the storyline was so well written, exciting, the characters were very interesting and well thought out, and the way she wove having faith in God throughout the story was wonderful! Also, the lady narrating the story does such a great job with reading all the characters parts, she really draws you in with her voice as well.

Pirate Preacher in a Powerful Plot

Charity's Cross goes beyond a playful, romantic squashbuckler and becomes a faith building read.

Tyndall has truly become an excellent wordsmith.
As the reader watches Charity's flight from the abuse of her husband, the reader sees, feels, touches, taste and smells Charity's world. We laugh and cry when she does. Of course the hero, Elias, saves her virtue and her life many times in the first part of the story, yet Charity still makes bad choices. This is where I usually want to toss the dumb damsel is distress into the sea. However in the last few chapters, Tyndall shows the reader who is really at work.

In this section, not only is Charity responsible for her future choices, she "mayhap" impart to some readers the secret. For those who need courage to get away from abuse, the power to overcome spins out in beautifully written words and life giving truths.

Tyndall weaves real, everyday Christians into extra ordinary adventures, and does so with excellent craftsmanship.
