This book made me very sad when I first started reading. Prosperity left her home to go unite with the man that she planned to marry. He had been sent by the army to Key West. There is nothing holding Prosperity to her home, so she decides to not wait for her fiance, but to go to him. It's not an easy journey and when she arrives she finds that he has married someone else. She is broken, defeated, hurt, has no money and nowhere to turn. Fortunately for her she meets Elizabeth. She takes her in, becomes her friend and helps her work on a new life. She also meets a local doctor who becomes a friend and somewhat of a mentor to her. She starts her new life as a housekeeper in the local hospital. Imagine the shock when David sees her and has to explain his actions. This book has heart ache, love, physical and mental challenges and lots of twists and turns. It's an easy read and one that will be enjoyed when finished.
** I was given this book at no cost for my honest opinion
