You Might Be Interested . . . A Heart Most Worthy

29 Sep

Several great historical novels set in the opulent and decadent Gilded Age of America have come out in the past year — Nancy Moser’s Masquerade and An Unlikely Suitor, Susan May Warren’s Heiress and Siri Mitchell’s She Walks in Beauty.  All are well written and researched and show the contrasting lives of those living in the era — the very rich and the very poor.

Siri Mitchell has another Gilded Age novel you may be interested in.  I have not yet read it, but it is definitely in my TBR pile.

A Heart Most WorthyThe elegance of Madame Fortier’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 Fortier’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?

So check out this book for yourself, you may just have found the perfect read!
