But when Prosperity arrives penniless in the South, she is dismayed to find David has not been eagerly awaiting their reunion. In fact, he is married to someone else.

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
Christine Johnson surprised me! It was my first book I’ve read by her, and I loved it. The story events and the characters lead me thinking that I figured out all of it. Yet at the end I was totally shocked, and I was proved again to be wrong. Don’t read further for more spoilers, just go and grub the book for yourselves!
