To Follow Her Heart by Rebecca DeMarino is the third and final book in the Southold Chronicles. The story loosely follows the history of the author's family as they settled Long Island in the 1600's. This novel focuses on Patience Terry and her longing to marry Jeremy Horton sea captain. I love the way Ms. DeMarino brings history to life. Her love of history is quite evident in all of the small details and I really enjoyed the recipes she included. I also enjoyed the scripture that she used throughout the book. Reading this novel was bittersweet as I got to enjoy time with characters from her previous two books, but I had to face the fact that this was the last visit I would have to Southold. I look forward to Ms. DeMarino's next book whatever the subject may be.
I was given this book by the author in exchange for my honest opinion. All thoughts are my own.
