From the first page of Love’s Rescue, by Christine Johnson, I couldn’t put the book down! The book begins with a hurricane that forever changes the life of Elizabeth Benjamin, a young girl living in Key West with her parents and brother. Elizabeth’s family felt she needed to marry a proper man, even after the accident that took the use of her brother’s legs. To find a proper match she had to move to Charleston to live with her great-aunt. This move took her away from Rourke O’Malley, the wrecker who she was in love with. After four years, and her mother’s death, she returns back home to find that Rourke has not yet married. Their relationship, along with revelations about her family and escape attempts, kept me completely interested in this book. So much so, I found myself reading it non-stop for two days!
I clearly enjoyed reading this book, and I cannot wait to read more books in the Keys of Promise series. I hope the future books focus more on Elizabeth’s brother Charlie. They all are interesting characters that I found to be likeable and relatable. They had difficulties in their lives and had to choose whether to be bitter or give their forgiveness.
