To Follow Her Heart - A Book Review

To Follow Her Heart by Rebecca DeMarino is the third book in The Southold Chronicles series.  I did not read the previous books and I think it is a fine stand alone book, however, I think that it would give you a better connection with some of the characters if you read the series in order.  I enjoyed the book enough to go back and read the other ones in the series.

I really enjoy historical fiction and this book is a reminder as to why.  So beautifully written, full of history and romance, all my favorites.  It is set in the 1600's and this is a time period that I have not read a lot of stories from and I enjoyed that most of all.

It is 1661 and Patience Terry is devastated to learn that captain Jeremy Horton's ship has been shipwrecked off the coast of Barbados.  There were no survivors.  She had hoped that Jeremy would someday give up the sea and settle down with her in Southold, Long Island.

Unaware his memorial service is being planned, Jeremy sails aboard a British warship with secret orders to attack New Amsterdam and claim it for the British Crown.  When he make his surprise return to Southold and to an overjoyed Patience it's not quite the happily ever after his beloved and hoped for.

***Thanks to Revell Reads for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
