My rating: 5 of 5 stars
New Series Keys of Promise, Book #1"Love's Rescue" by Christine Johnson
This author really pulls at the heart strings as we read the pages of this story. Elizabeth Benjamin is a wonderful character with desires that she is not sure will come true. Time is slipping away and she wonders if her time has already came and gone.
Secrets abound in the family that she never knew and she is half afraid to find out...Her mother left a diary and reading the pages leaks things she never knew.
Elizabeth feels guilty about her brother's accident at the time of a storm and it eats at her soul.
Rourke is a "wrecker," he has a ship and when another runs aground or flounders he comes to the rescue for a price. He has loved Elizabeth since she was a young girl and now that she is grown he is wanting to court her if only he can get her father to agree. Father has arranged for Elizabeth to marry and she is fighting it every step of the way-hoping beyond hope that she can marry the man of her dreams.
Key West is a special place in the 1800's , this story has an aunt who is overbearing, Father is an attorney busy in his dealings, Elizabeth has a maid that has been with her for years about the same age as she and they do many things together...more friends then maid and mistress.
Reading this story will bring a tug at your heart for Elizabeth and Rourke.
Thanks Christine for hours of enjoyment and an ending that made me smile with contentment.
