Love’s Rescue by Christine Johnson takes place in the Key West during 1850. This is a story of a young woman, Elizabeth, coming home after her mother has passed away to help take care of her father and crippled brother. Leaving her home four years earlier after the devastation of a hurricane and her brother’s accident, she left with her parents’ wishes to find a suitable spouse. However, her heart was already involved with a wrecker by the name of Rourke O’Malley. Returning to the Key’s with her older Aunt and still unmarried, she does not receive the homecoming she was hoping for. Her family, still intent to see her married to a gentleman of their choosing, Elizabeth fights her deepest feelings for Rourke even though she knows it is useless to give up on him. Facing an unhappy future, Elizabeth discovers family secrets that turn her world upside down, and she realizes she may not have known her mother and father well at all. Infused with family secrets, history, adventure on the high seas, issues with slavery, and romance, this story has a beautiful message of what love is and what love can sacrifice and forgive.
