Synopsis:Two Men Vie for Her Affection--Survival Will Depend on Choosing the Right One
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. Arriving penniless in the South, Prosperity is dismayed to find David married to someone else. Scrambling to survive and nursing a broken heart, she 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 reader's 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.
What did I think of this book:
Christine Johnson has done it again with the newest addition to the Keys of Promise series. What a better setting could she have chosen for this series that the beautiful Key West. You could not help but feel bad for Prosperity. Her name suggests that things would be good for her but it was just the opposite. I can not imagine making such a long and hard journey as she did only to find out the man she loved was married to someone else. I know it all happened under not so good circumstances but it did not make things any easier for all involved. I was still angry at David for all of this. So now are you not only hurt but you are in a place foreign to you with no family or friends. But luckily Prosperity does find a way to move on in this situation and does so with the help of a kind doctor. I enjoyed reading about the Keys in time period and the descriptions as it helped the book seem real to me. I always enjoy the way this author can make you feel as if you are a part of the story. I am looking forward to the next book.
