A Heart Most Worthy is actually three totally separate stories of young women passionate about finding happiness and fulfillment in their lives. They find themselves all working together at Madame Forza's designer gown shoppe.
The story begins in Boston in 1918, and most of the characters live in the lower class North-end. Filled with rich history of Italian immigrants and their struggles in America, it also details the intolerance of other ethnic groups towards them.
Each of the girls has their own family responsibilities and obligations, and I found it interesting to see how each of them reacted when possible suitors came into their lives. They individually needed to accept that they were worthy of happiness and love in their relationships, even though their personal decisions might cause opposition and even danger.
This is the first book I have read by Siri Mitchell, and I thoroughly enjoyed it from the gorgeous front cover and right to the very last page. I will definitely be looking for more books by this author.
