With her usual careful descriptions and finely tuned detail, Kaye Dacus introduces us to her newest novel, Follow the Heart. Set in mid-1800s England, when new inventions and industrialization sparked a shift in the status quo, Kate and Christopher Dearing travel from Philadelphia to England in order to accept the kindness of their uncle to marry wealthy. But love and money do not always dine at the same table and when Kate falls for the gardener and Christopher for the governess, what will they be willing to sacrifice to obtain their dreams?
There is such a sweetness between Kate and Andrew. I enjoyed their mutual discovery of their love through their interests in architecture.
If you enjoy the tension between the classes and a world of wonder set in 1851, you’ll probably enjoy Kaye Dacus’ newest novel, Follow the Heart.
