Circled Heart by Karen J. Hasley
Meet a remarkable woman. Read an unforgettable love story.
Johanna Swan is a survivor. She escaped death twice—as a child in China during the Boxer Uprising of 1900 and twelve years later as a young woman aboard the ocean liner Titanic. Now a forward-thinking suffragist and an heiress besides, Johanna intends to use her intelligence, energy, and fortune to help poor and immigrant women. Johanna manages life the way she manages her money. Invest sensibly. Never be obligated. Reduce risk. Keep control of your assets. But the emotional turmoil in her family and the growing confusion in her own heart when it comes to charismatic, sentimental and—she fears—deceitful Drew Gallagher are interfering with Johanna’s orderly existence. For all her logical decision making, it will be the shifting emotions of desire and despair that finally force Johanna to realize that love is more complex and life far less predictable than any business venture.
