Another Great Read by Siri Mitchell
I really enjoyed the last book I read by Siri Mitchell, so I was very excited to see another of her novels appear on my list of books up for review. And I was not disapponted!
A Heart Most Worthy follows the story of three seamstresses living in Boston in 1918. They are each so very different from each other, although they have one thing in common - they are Italian. The book follows each of the women as they face their past and family traditions, and try to forge futures for themselves during a time when life for immigrants in America was anything but easy.
Although it took me a while to get to know everyone in each of the girl's lives, I found it was worth forging through the first few chapters to delve into a wonderful story. It is filled with history, and I learned a lot about life for immigrants during the time period. It takes a while for all the threads of the tale to wind together, but once they do, they create a rich story that you will be glad you took the time to read!
Thank you to Bethany House Publishers for a free copy of this book for review!
