Title: Honor Redeemed

Author: Christine Johnson

Series: Keys of Promise #2

Genre: Historical

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. 

**3 stars**

Honor Redeemed, book two in the KEYS OF PROMISE series by Christine Johnson, was a thought-provoking story set in the Key West, 1852. It was a bit different from the first book, Love's Rescue, but I still liked it!

Prosperity Jones is now an orphan. Determined to reunite with her beloved David, she sets sail alone to the Key West, where he's stationed. But when she arrives, she shocked to find that things between her and David were obviously not as she had thought. Now married and a father, will David ever have his honor restored? What will Prosperity do now that the man she staked all her hopes on has hugely disappointed her?

It was more focused on the romance and emotions concerning that - rather than adventure, action, daring escapades, drama, and forbidden love as was in Love's Rescue. I was a little bit let down, and not sure what to think of the unusual, messy (emotion/relationship-wise) storyline. But then I did get into it and came to like it by the end! *smiles* It was interesting, thoughtful, painful ... and ultimately, heartfelt.

A little more mature than Love's Rescue perhaps, as there's a theme concerning hasty weddings due to women pregnant out of wedlock.

Overall, a good book. I look forward to more by Christine Johnson!

I received a copy of Honor Redeemed from Revell Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
