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.
Julie Lessman is a drama queen.
A Passion Most Pure was Julie’s debut novel, the first in a 3 book series – Daughters of Boston. I had already read the two books of her follow on series, Winds of Change, both of which I loved. So I asked Jess to get me the three Daughters of Boston books for Christmas because I was very eager to read the earlier stories of the O’Connor family.
Most of this year I’ve been doing research reading, so I hadn’t allowed myself to sit back and indulge in my Christmas present. But after many YA novels and parenting books, I was desperate for a break. Within two pages of A Passion Most Pure, I sighed and thought, “This is just what I needed!”
I am dying to know how Charity’s love life transpires, and if I weren’t currently undertaking Speedbo, I would have dived straight into the next book, A Passion Redeemed. As it is, I can see Charity over on my bookshelf, daring me to pick it up. But no, she will have to wait. I think 😉
The bottom line is, if you’re looking for something gutsy with drama, passion, excitement and romance – and all in the light of God’s love – you can’t go past A Passion Most Pure.
