A Heart Most Worthy by Siri Mitchell

A Heart Most Worthy
Siri Mitchell

There are many stories of immigrants to the USA and how they survived and prospered. This is the story of three young ladies from Italy who live in Boston around 1918 and are working in a high end dress shop. Luciana, Julietta and Annamaria are three young seamstresses earning their way at Madame Fortier's dress shop. There are many obstacles to overcome, being poor, not speaking English, prejudice and sometimes their own families interfere in how each young woman wants to lead her own life. There is history, intrigue and romance in this story and it is all interwoven to hold your interest to the end.
I would recommend this book to everyone. It was a really enjoyable read from beginning to end. I've read other books by Siri Mitchell and love her style of writing and choice of settings. Although you can't judge a book by it's cover, I really do like looking at the woman and the beautiful dress that she is wearing. It really adds to the story to picture the type of clothes that women wore at that time in our history. I'm sure that poorer women would only wish to have such beautiful clothes as the women who were able to buy dresses made at Madame Fortier's dress shop.
I received this book to read and review from Bethany House Publishers.
