About the Book:
One Woman. Two Men.
One stirs her pulse and the other her faith.
But who will win her heart?
Marceline Murphy is a gentle beauty with a well-founded aversion to rogues. But when two of Boston's most notorious pursue her, she encounters a tug-of-war of the heart she isn’t expecting. Sam O’Rourke is the childhood hero she’s pined for, the brother of her best friend and a member of the large, boisterous family to which she longs to be a part. So when his best friend Patrick O’Connor joins in pursuit of her affections, the choice seems all too clear. Sam is from a family of faith and Patrick is not, two rogues whose wild ways clash head-on with Marcy’s—both in her faith and in her heart.
My Star Rating: 5 Stars
Oh, how I do love a Julie Lessman novel, and A Light in the Window is certainly no exception! I've read every single one of Julie's novels, and it's been such a wonderful journey! With A Light in the Window being the prequel to The Daughters of Boston series and the Winds of Change series, it's a fantastic place to start if you haven't yet met the O'Connors. And needless to say, there's absolutely nothing wrong with reading it after you've read the other two series (in order, of course!).
A Light in the Window is inspirational Christian fiction at its finest, and overflows with drama, angst, love, and passion. It's a beautiful Christmas love story, as well as a story of redemption. I love how it shows the overwhelming power that God has to change a life . . . it's incredible and amazing, to say the least. The story is well written with fantastic attention to detail in characters and setting, and like I've said in other reviews -- Julie Lessman writes some of the best dialogue I've ever read! The characters are endearing, the story is heartwarming, and while I could go on and on, I can sum up my thoughts on this book in three words . . . I LOVED IT! If you're a Julie Lessman fan, I have no doubt that you'll love it, too! And if you're new to Julie's work, what are you waiting for? Pick this one up for your e-reader; you'll be so glad that you did!
