Glad to have you visit my little corner of the blog world! I'm a minister's wife and stay-at-home mommy.
Here you will find LOTS of book reviews, because I LOVE to read. You'll also get a little peak into our family life as we seek to raise the three gifts from the Lord with which we have been richly blessed and a little of the things I'm learning as I daily surrender to the Lord in complete trust. This life isn't always easy, but it is an adventure like no other. At the end of each day, I rest in the faithfulness of Almighty God.
Praying you are blessed by your visit with me!
Rebecca DeMarino is the author of The Southhold Chronicles, a series based on the lives of her ninth great-greandparents, Mary Langton and Barnabas Horton. She inherited her love of baking and gardening from her mother; a love of horses, reading, and writing from her dad; and the wanderlust gene from both parents. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Romance Writers of America, New England Historical Genealogical Sociaety, and the Southold Long Island Historical Society.
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. There were 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 sails aboard a British warship 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 quite the happily-ever-after his beloved had hoped for. With a finely tuned senxe for authentic historical characters and settings, Rebecca DeMarino plunges you into a world of tall ships, daring journeys and yearning hearts. My Thoughts:
I have really enjoyed the previous books in The Southold Chronicles, A Place in His Heart and To Capture Her Heart, and To Follow Her Heart did not disappoint! DeMarino's impeccable research and knowledge of the history and nuances of the time period are obvious. She is able to transport readers to another time and place. I felt as if I were actually there with Patience and Jeremy and could see and feel the things they were seeing and feeling. This is an exceptional Historical romance series and author you will not want to miss!
