A Heart Most Worthy: A Book Review

About The Book:

Romance Abounds in this Engaging Novel

The elegance of Madame Forza's gown shop is a far cry from the downtrodden North End of Boston. Yet each day Julietta, Annamaria, and Luciana enter the world of the upper class, working on finery for the elite in society. The three beauties each long to break free of their obligations and embrace the American dream--and their chance for love. But the ways of the heart are difficult to discern at times. Julietta is drawn to the swarthy, mysterious Angelo. Annamaria has a star-crossed encounter with the grocer's son, a man from the entirely wrong family. And through no intent of her own, Luciana catches the eye of Billy Quinn, the son of Madame Forza's most important client. Their destinies intertwined, each harboring a secret from their families and each other, will they be found worthy of the love they seek?

My Review:

I have had the pleasure of reading Siri Mitchell's work, She Walks In Beauty, and loved it. So when the chance arose to review her most recent novel, A Heart Most Worthy, I was very excited.

The book is very well written, and it very evident that a ton of research was done to make it as historically accurate as possible. You will follow the lives of three women over a number of years and you will fall in love the characters. They are wonderful. The way that A Heart Most Worthy draws you in is amazing and I love how much the lives of these women intertwine. What I really appreciated was that the author lets you know that initially you make be confused by the story's of the women, but it does not take long for all the story lines to fall into place.

If you are a Christian Historical Fiction fan you will love the themes of history, romance, friendship, and overcoming difficulties that occur as a result of immigration. 

I highly recommend A Heart Most Worthy by Siri Mitchell and give it a huge thumbs up!
