A Heart Most Worthy by Siri Mitchell

A Heart Most Worthy is centered around three young Italian-American women during the early 1900's in Boston.
The first, Julietta, is a passionate young lady looking for love in all the wrong places.
The second, Annamaria, is shy and trusting but falls for a man whom her parents don't approve.
Finally, Luciana, who immigrated from Italy with her grandmother, is hiding because she fears the men that killed her father and mother in Italy are after her and her grandmother.

This book is full of many twists and turns and you are always wondering if they find the men they are supposed to in the end.
I did not enjoy this book as much as I hoped to. I did not like how the author randomly (in my opinion) used third person when talking about the women. It was distracting to the flow of the story.
It was interesting, however, that the women's stories in the book intertwined. I found Annamaria's story to be very good. The prejudice her family showed to the man she loved was ended when his family was the one to help Annamaria's family in a time of great need. Through sorrow, her family became forgiving and accepting.
This book is full of love, a little adventure, forgiveness, sorrow and in the end, joy.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
