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.
Review by Blanche Mancuso
Author, Christine Johnson does a wonderful job of weaving the story of Prosperity Jones and her love of Nantucket and the love and honor she has for David, a soldier who was sent to Key West. Prosperity sets out to be with David only to find out he is married to someone else. Now Prosperity is penniless and alone but not for long as she becomes friends with a kind doctor.
This is the second book in this series, Keys of Promise. Although this book can be read as a stand alone novel. This is an inspiring novel of love, honor, and duty. It will keep you spellbound to a dramatic climax with all that happens to Prosperity. There is lots of drama as the story tells of duty, honor, family, and romance. I love this book and would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to get lost in a wonderful story.
