Summary

Behind the scenes at Patrick Henry College: “A deft and honest narrative of evangelical education . . . historical background, close observation and skeptical wit” (Publishers Weekly). One of the Christian Science Monitor’s annual “Books We Liked Best”   Take a walk down the halls and into the dorms and hearts of tiny Patrick Henry College, a Christian school just outside the nation’s capital, where ambitious young evangelicals are groomed to become tomorrow’s conservative elite. The future front lines of politics, entertainment, and science will be commanded by these idealistic graduates, who plan to lead the battle in reclaiming a godless nation.  God’s Harvard reveals the evangelical movement at a moment of crisis and climax, its future leaders struggling to resist the temptations of modern life even as they try to remake the world in their image. This is a vibrant, insightful look at kids who may very well be in charge of our country one day.   “A rare accomplishment for many reasons—perhaps most of all because Rosin is a journalist who not only reports but also observes deeply.” —San Francisco Chronicle   “Rosin is at her best when chronicling sympathetically the lives of these young evangelicals, as ambitious as their secular peers but single-minded in their focus on politics.” —Chicago Tribune   “Nuanced and highly readable . . . With her feisty, richly detailed prose.” —The Washington Post

    No one writes a pirate story better than Christy award finalist Tyndall!  This romantic, action-packed adventure illustrates the healing, redemptive power of God’s grace while still offering readers the excitement they crave. Chandra McNeil, Romantic Times 
    How does a British Admiral’s daughter end up being sold as a slave on the auction block in St. Kitts? Could it be the loss of her mother, the verbal abuse of a strict father, the violation by a family member? Or maybe that her sister is a pirate! All these things and more drove Hope Westcott to seek love and value in the arms of unscrupulous men and hence into this dire situation. 
    Nathaniel Mason has loved Hope from afar for years, but her scandalous behavior, along with his efforts to start a shipping company, have kept him at a distance. Growing up an orphan has convinced Nathaniel that only wealth can provide security. Yet when he sees Hope on the auction block, how much of that security will he risk to save her?    
    Hurricanes, shipwrecks, deserted islands, and even pirates threaten to keep the lovers apart before they learn that only God can provide the love and assurance they both seek. 
    I really enjoyed this novel. It had the right touch of mystery, intrigue, romance and faith – which is a combination that is potent.Romance Readers Connection
