A Passion Redeemed by Julie Lessman
I have an extra copy of this book, so leave a comment for a chance to win!
If you like your Christian romance with a bit more realism and sensuality, seasoned with grace and a deft hand, you will absolutely love this book! Julie Lessman’s talents as a fiction writer are a force to be reckoned with! I can’t say enough in praise of this book. The characters are so real, so full of personality, so well-rounded, I could literally hear them speaking. And everything just seems to come together realistically, but at the same time, perfectly. Reading this book was like sinking into a comfortable sofa with a piece of gooey chocolate cake—there was nothing more I could want.
The first book in Julie Lessman’s Daughters of Boston series, A Passion Most Pure, ended with Charity O’Connor as the bad girl everyone has unfortunately encountered before. She’s manipulative, deceitful, and determined to get what she wants. But in this book we find out just why she is the way she is. We get inside her head and see that she loves with her whole heart, just as deeply as her sister, Faith. She’s capable of kindness and disappointment and desperation. And I couldn’t help but cheer for her, especially when she began to realize that she needed to change.
This is an epic love story, and a God story. I enjoyed it greatly. Two thumbs way up! I highly recommend it!
