Book Review: A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman
Synopsis (From Julie Lessman's Website):
She's found the love of her life. Unfortunately, he loves her sister ...
As World War I rages across the Atlantic in 1916, a smaller war is brewing in Boston. Faith O’Connor finds herself drawn to an Irish rogue who is anything but right for her. Collin McGuire is brash, cocky, and from the wrong side of the tracks, not to mention forbidden by her father. And then there’s the small matter that he is secretly courting her younger sister. But when Collin’s affections suddenly shift her way, it threatens to tear Faith's proper Boston family apart.
I'm so glad that I read this book! I read it in record time, due do the fact that I could not put it down! Julie Lessman has created wonderful characters and a magnificent storyline. She writes in such a way that keeps you turning pages into the wee hours of the morning.
If you love passion, romance, and God's Word, you can't go wrong with this book! Make sure you have the second book in the series, because you'll want to get started on it right away. (written November 11, 2009)
