Duty and love are powerful forces. Only one has the power to make her life complete.
It is 1664 and Patience Terry is devastated to learn that Captain Jeremy Horton's ship has been shipwrecked off the coast of Barbados, with 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 is rescued and aboard a British Naval Gunship with secret orders to attack New Amsterdam and claim it for the British Crown. When he makes his surprise return to Southold--and to an overjoyed Patience--it's not the happily-ever-after his beloved had hoped for.
To Follow Her Heart by Rebecca DeMarino was a stunning conclusion to The Southold Chronicles. The characters are true to the historical setting and they easily capture your heart. Rebecca DeMarino is a master at inserting history into the story in a way that seems natural, unlike some books I have read where it seem more like a textbook. To Follow Her Heart was the perfect book to end the series on, giving the readers time with old characters as well as the main ones in this story. I can't wait to read whatever Rebecca DeMarino come up with next!
5 out of 5. An excellent read.
I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
