"Honor Redeemed"

Honor Redeemed

by Christine Johnson
Keys of Promise

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.

My Review:
Prosperity has been "set adrift on a vast ocean" and is unsure of how to answer the question of what she is going to do with her life now.  This is how Christine begins her latest book "Honor Redeemed" and effectively hooks the reader as Prosperity sets out to move on with her life.  Prosperity was a great main character as she is facing trials, yet she handles them with grace and dignity and draws upon her inner strength and her faith.  I love the details that Christine writes with as it brings the setting and the time period to life for the reader and allows the reader to picture such vivid images.  I highly recommend this book for historical fiction fans.
