His restless heart beat to a rhythm of its own. While the world begged him to ignore it, Konrad Quintero de Leon dared to follow it.

Restless Heart is an epic novel, which falls neatly and originally within the characteristics of literary and historical fiction. Set in 1840s America in the midst of great expansion and Manifest Destiny, a young man sets out on a journey of self-discovery, adventure, and love. The story follows recent Oxford University graduate, Konrad Quintero de Leon, upon his return home to New York City and the aristocratic life that awaits him there. Konrad, unready to settle down into that lifestyle, heads off to New Orleans with his childhood friend, the energetic and loveable, Miriam Monroe. From New Orleans, Konrad goes on great adventures across the frontier, but when he falls for Anastasia Carriere, he must choose between love and his restless heart.
