Charlotte Amelia Etheridge has cowered to her mother’s sharp tongue and endless demands for the last time. In a fleeting moment of rebellion, she recklessly asks a foreigner from the Leeward Islands for a dance. But her one courageous act lands her in a compromising position. Forced to wed a stranger, Lottie leaves the only home she’s ever known to reside on the isle of St. Kitts. Nathaniel Winthrop’s troubles are mounting, and the rumors of him being cursed are spreading. Due to the dwindling sugar crop, he risks everything to start his own shipping company. The last thing he needs is a wife, especially one with a weak constitution. Yellow fever has already claimed the lives of his mother and siblings. He must guard his heart against falling in love with this gentle beauty, knowing island life will be a death sentence. No longer under her mother’s scrutiny, the newfound freedom of the island rejuvenates Lottie’s spirit. If her days on this earth are limited, then it’s time she lives life to the full. Now it’s up to her to prove that even though Nathan was coerced into marrying her, she’s the one he can’t live without.

What a wonderful adventure set on a tropical island! The story captured you from the beginning and kept your attention through the end. It wasnt so easy to figure out the what was going to happen. I loved geting to know Lottie. At the beginning of the story, she was timid but had many challenges throughout the story that caused her to change and grow. I loved getting a glimpse into her relationship with Nathan. I laughed and smiled and awwwed over it. Most of the character’s I liked but others not so much. Lorri Dudley did a wonderful job weaving the gospel into her story.
I recommend this story to my family and friends.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
