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.
My, oh my! What should I say about this book? Good, yes. Funny, not exactly. Intriguing, totally. Exciting, kind of.
First of all, I really like the cover. I mean, I don’t usually like covers with faces, but this one was very well done.
Next! I was so heartbroken whenever David and Prosperity were together. It was seriously super sad! I mean, betrayal and love in the same room–kind of scary!! Christine Johnson did a very good job describing these scenes.
As for the doctor…do I have a thing or two to say to him. First things first, can’t you tell when a girl is still nursing a broken heart? Seriously, dude! Don’t try to make her fall in love with you right away! Give her some time. I also kind of felt bad for him, though. He’s an older guy, not in the prime of his life, trying to find love again. So, perhaps there will be a book about him–or not.
Now for the overall rating of this book. Okay, I personally enjoyed this book a lot. Sure, it was kind of slow in the beginning, but once I got into it, I really liked it. So, I would like to give this book four stars!
