Rating: 4 stars
I am now becoming a fan of Sherry Ewing. She writes books that totally enchant you to the point that you become engrossed in the book. I was not much of a fan of historical romance but after reading one of Sherry Ewing's books, I am now loving it and definitely going to read more of her books and even give historical romance a try. Plus this is a time travel book which to a shock I loved it even though some might find it strange. To follow My Heart was truly an engaging book and I truly loved reading it.
To Follow My Heart is about a woman Jenna who is whisked back to 1182 after going through a terrible break up from her fiancé. She runs to Sir Fletcher, a knight. She does not believe where she is and she takes a while to fully comprehend where she is. She becomes attracted to Fletcher and quickly falls in love with him. This story was so charming and sweet. I do not usually go for stories like this but this story truly captivated me. it was not cheesy and sometimes there were parts that truly amused me and made me smile a lot. Definitely a book that will cheer you up when you have a bad day. I praise Sherry Ewing for giving a truly unique story that makes you love magic and the force of time travel.
The writing was truly unique. Even though some of the text was written in Shakespear language, I could follow the story easily. ok, some people would think its boring but it made me think of the days in high school when I came across the language in English Literature. It was truly memorable to me. The characters were fantastic. I loved Fletcher. He was such a gentleman and I am so glad he found love after he had feelings for a married woman. At first, I did not like Jenna because she was a bit selfish but she later grew on me. I loved their journey to love.
Overall, To Follow My Heart was truly a magical story and showed sometimes you have to sacrifice for love.
