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 I Loved: I love a novel with a sticky problem and Honor Redeemed certainly fit that bill. I found it so refreshing to read about characters who valued morality at such a high level. The majority of Christian Fiction tends to deal with at least one character who isn’t saved in the beginning, but that wasn’t the case here and yet the story was FAR from boring. Righteousness might guide Prosperity and David but it didn’t eliminate their problems.
The story moved and flowed at a steady rate. I connected easily with both characters and sympathized with them from beginning to end.
Rating and Recommendation: I’m gladly giving Honor Redeemed 5 stars and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction or Christian Historical Fiction.
