A Heart Most Worthy

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?

Book Review

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.

I'm getting to where I love historical Christian fiction. So many good books out there. Siri Mitchell is an author I have not read, but have been wanting to read. I have the free one from Amazon downloaded to my Kindle and hope to get to it soon. I'm reading a very good Christian fiction one now (set at the time of Jesus ministry and the crucifixion), so I'll swap up and do a romance or mystery next, before hopping back to "olden" times :)

Happy Reading!
