Wonderful Start to a new series
5 stars By Iola, May 01 2013
Katherine Dearing has been sent from Philadelphia to England to find a rich husband who will be able to salvage her family's financial situation. But at twenty-seven, is she too old to attract a rich husband? Or any husband? Accompanying her is her younger brother, Christopher, who has recently qualified as a solicitor specialising in railway law. He too is under pressure to marry well, although having a profession at least means he can support himself, but both of them find they are attracted to the wrong people. I really liked the characters. Edith reminded me of Lady Mary from Downton Abbey-well written, but unpleasant and with too high an opinion of herself. Dorcas and Florence were much more likeable, even though they were only minor characters, so I hope we see more of them. A lot of the plot revolved around the gardens, as Kate is a keen gardener, albeit one with quite different ideas to Andrew. 

I am always nervous when I see a novel set in England by an American writer, especially a historical. I have had too many ruined by insufficient research and an abundance of Americanisms, so I am relieved and pleased to say that Follow the Heart had no cultural cringes or historical anachronisms. I was also very pleased with the way the Christian aspects of the story were handled, particularly with Kate. This is the first novel in the new Great Exhibition series, set around Prince Albert's Great Exhibition at Crystal Palace, London, in 1851.
