Her future–and her heart–hang in the balance.
Two years ago, Prosperity Jones waved farewell to her beloved David as the army sent him to faraway Key West. Now with her parents gone, she has but one prospect for the future: make the dangerous journey from Nantucket to Key West to reunite with David and secure a happier life.
But when Prosperity arrives penniless in the South, she is dismayed to find David has not been eagerly awaiting their reunion. In fact, he is married to someone else. Scrambling to survive and nursing a broken heart, Prosperity gains the friendship–and the affection–of a kind doctor. Could he be the answer to her loneliness? Or will her life be upended by circumstance yet again?
With a deft hand, Christine Johnson fills the senses with the sights, sounds, and smells of Key West in this heartwarming story of honor lost, honor redeemed, and a love forged in adversity.
Everything I have read by Christine I have really enjoyed. I had to wait a year for this book, but it was worth that wait.
She has created a wonderful story filled with tension, confusion and love.
The whole time I was reading this I kept wondering how things could possibly work out. Just when it looked like it could something new happened to cause another obstacle.
This book has a great message of forgiveness, something I believe we all struggle with in some way.
If you read the first book in this series you will happy to see Elizabeth and Rourke again and even if you didn’t read that book you will adore them in this book.
Another wonderful story by Christine.
