You know it’s a great book when your husband walks into the room and catches you lecturing the main characters, or surrounded by tissues saturated in tears. Julie Lessman’s debut novel is all that and more! -QallieQ
Refusing to settle for anything less than a romantic relationship that pleases God, Faith O'Connor steels her heart against her desire for the roguish Collin McGuire. But when Collin tries to win her sister Charity's hand, Faith isn't sure she can handle the jealousy she feels. To further complicate matters, Faith finds herself the object of Collin's affections, even as he is courting her sister. The Great War is raging overseas, and a smaller war is brewing in the O'Connor household. Full of passion, romance, rivalry, and betrayal, A Passion Most Pure will captivate readers from the first page. Book 1 of the Daughters of Boston series.
Set at the cusp of America's entrance into World War I, the O'Conners; a loving Christian family of proud Irish descent experience both triumph and tribulation in their quests for love, faith and patriotism, separated from each other and their home in Boston Massachusetts while waiting out the war from the shores of Dublin, Ireland.
Earning a permanent position in my personal library, this truly was a book that I was unable to put down. This book went everywhere with me as I was unable to stop reading until the very end. Every time that I was sure I knew what would happen next, this wonderful story would take an unpredictable twist. Faith and Charity O'Conner bring to light an honest relationship between sisters as they fight, sharing a truth that while families require love this does not always mean you will like eachother.
Peppered with scripture this families love and faith in both God and eachother is woven through out a romantic tale tantalizing enought to appeal to the mainstream reader as well. This is a book where I laughed, cried and hugged the book in my arms before tearing into the sequal. Thank you Julie for such a delightful read.y
