" The important thing for you to remember, Patience, is to put God first and then follow where He leads your heart, in faith , knowing that He holds your hand." - Joshua, To Follow Her Heart by Rebecca DeMarino
Hey Readers, Why is there so much to read but there is so little time!
Here is my next "Must Read" if you like to read historical romance books.

The year is 1664 and Patience Terry has been in love with Captain Jeremy Horton since she met him but he has another love... Jeremy loves the ocean. Patience has pleaded with him to stay with her but he still goes out on the ocean on his beloved ship. One day Patience receives word that Jeremy's ship had been shipwrecked off the coast of Barbados and there have been no survivors found.

While everyone is mourning Jeremy at his funeral, Jeremy shows up right in the middle of the service! Patience is ecstatic! Finally her beloved Jeremy has returned to her and they can finally start their lives together. But Jeremy has agreed to lead the militia with orders to attack New Amsterdam. Patience agrees to wait for him while he away and after the attack goes better then planned Jeremy returns home to Southold, Patience knows that Jeremy will finally marry her and they will get to live happily ever after... right?
Well, not exactly because Jeremy decides that he needs to do a few things first like get a job, help Harry build a ship etc... Patience is getting tired of waiting for Jeremy, How many times must she endure him leaving her?

You will have to read the book to find out!
What did I think about the book?
So this is book 3 of The Southold Chronicles and it is also the final book in the series. I read book 2, To Capture her Heart ( Book Review link) but this book could also be read as a stand alone. I love the historical details that the author used in every chapter of the book, like the detail of the ships or the little recipes that she included... They all fit together to tell the love story of Patience and Jeremy. I recommend this book to anyone who has read the first two books because the author concludes the series well and I also recommed this book to anyone who likes a historical romance novel with lots of ups and downs. Overall I give this book 4 out of 5 Stars ****
If you want to check out the first two books in the series or any of her others books, here's the link:
Happy Reading :)
