Shipwrecked in Key West.
Salvaged Love is the story of a young girl's journey into womanhood and her need to carve a place for herself in the small island community and in the heart of her husband. Set in 1828 at the cusp of Key West's rise to wealth from ship salvaging, the story blends facts and fiction to entertain and highlight the fascinating history of Key West, Florida.
Nineteen year old Abigail Bennington eagerly accepts her father's invitation to sail to the Caribbean in a desperate need to escape a pending proposal. Their six month holiday goes awry when they become stranded in Key West, a newly settled island at the entrance of the Gulf of Mexico. Abby becomes enchanted with the island and its residents until circumstances force her father to insist she marry. Now locked in matrimony, can the young couple's burgeoning love survive resentment and isolation?
This is the first book in the generational series Love in Key West. It is a complete story and can be listened to as a single audiobook, however, much as we are our own story tied to those before and after us, so is this audiobook tied to those that will follow.
