The world is becoming more and more depressing with each passing days. There is not much I can do about the things that’s going on in the world right now.  I can’t stop natural disasters, nor I can make powerful nations who are pointing weapons at each other cease fire.

I can only seek refuge in books, in hope it will somehow stop me from feeling depressed and wistful about things that I cannot do, and cannot change.

Unfortunately for me, not all books provides the sense of escapism. At least, this one doesn’t provide me any. Instead, it makes me relate to the raging war and uncertainties that the world is facing today.

Yes, Surrender The Heart by MaryLu Tyndall is a love story, but it’s a historical romance set in the times of wars and uncertainties. There’s something about this book that tugs at my heart. I am not sure what, but I suspect it’s the fact that the characters managed to find love despite of hating each other. I suppose, there is some things that war and difficult circumstances cannot take away from us, which is love, faith and hope.

Surrender The Heart is set in the times of despair and hardship. It was explicitly written that I could feel the despair in the story.
