When her mother dies after a long illness, Prosperity Jones finds herself unable to remain in Nantucket long enough to send word to her fiancé serving as an army engineer. Despite their separation of two years, Prosperity has never doubted David Latham's love for her, and decides to use her remaining funds to meet him in far away Key West.
When she arrives in the South, however, Prosperity discovers that the steadfast love of her youth has recently married another woman, and is expecting a child. With help from some new friends, Prosperity finds work at the local hospital and attempts to rebuild her life. When she discovers the circumstances surrounding David's hasty marriage, will Prosperity's path to forgiveness and healing lead her to accept the attentions of the kind Dr. Goodenow, or will tragic events force her back into David's life again?
In Honor Redeemed, Christine Johnson tells a heart-wrenching story of honor, duty, and forgiveness. With a true knack for story-telling and character development, Johnson delves into the pain and bitterness that accompany a broken heart. Without overly obvious preaching, Johnson shows readers how forgiveness is simultaneously difficult and necessary. While the story had some pacing issues, and this reader wished Prosperity would make up her mind a little more quickly, Honor Redeemed is still a page-turning delight.
