Honor Redeemed - A Book Review

If you read very many of my book reviews you already know that I am a huge fan of historical fiction.  It is my favorite genre to read.  Honor Redeemed by Christine Johnson met all my expectations of what a great historical fiction novel should be.  You can really tell when an author has done their "homework" and studied out a specific time period and it is very evident in this book.

One thing I enjoy is when the author includes and Author's Note sharing if there was anything true to life in the book and where they got some of the information.  This gives just a little bit more insight into the writing and preparations that went into the novel.

Honor Redeemed is the second book in the Keys of Promise series and although I did not read the first book I will definitely be going back and reading it now.

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?
