A Desperate Fortune by Susanna Kearsley

Available now: A Desperate Fortune by Susanna Kearsley

****4/5 stars- loved it

A Desperate Fortune has the makings of an award-winner: Romance, mystery, intrigue and personal pain

Recommended readers:

  • If you’re a fan of a multi-genre book,
  • if you like Jojo Moyes (especially her contemporary novels)
  • and if you like dual storylines (past and present).

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 3.5/5 for characters
  • 3.5/5 for plot
  • 3.5/5 overall


A Goodreads Choice nominee with some other Books for Her favorites, A Desperate Fortune is compelling and immersive. When modern-day amateur code-breaker Sara Thomas has the opportunity to try to decipher the journal of an exiled Jacobite, she get the journey of a lifetime. In Susanna Kearsley style, A Desperate Fortune has intrigue, mystery and a powerful personal storyline to boot. A great read (much like her more recently release Named of a Dragon).

Available on Amazon: Named of the Dragon
