A Heart Most Worthy
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?

Picking up a Siri Mitchell book means you are getting lost in another world for a few hours. It is what I love most about reading. Siri pulls you into another time and place and in this book that place is Boston in 1918. As a homeschooling mom, I love that Siri has so accurately portrayed the historical events of this time along with her storyline. The flu epidemic, the popular dance called the mattchiche, The Great Emigration... all part of our American history.
More than the history, A Heart Most Worthy probes the choices of three women. How their choices affect them, their families and ultimately each other.
