Readers - let me preface this by saying that my personal opinion of this book is that it is an absolute classic and we will be reading about the O'Connor family for many years. These are the kind of books that you will save on your shelf and pass on to your daughters and granddaughters. Legacy books this classic do not come along very often - at all... so don't pass up the opportunity to get to know the O'Connors.
I was drawn into this book in a way unlike most books I've read lately - and I read a lot (24 books in January alone). I can not wait for the next installment of the O'Connor family and strongly encourage you to start now by learning about Faith, Charity and Collin!
Julie Lessman is an AMAZING author! I can't believe that this is her debut novel! Let me tell you, it is a book that you will not want to put down - so make sure that you start it when you have enough time to finish it in one sitting!
Faith O'Connor is a woman who has a strong faith in the Lord. A faith that was forged by the many trials she had to face as a young child, such as her twin sister dying from Polio. Faith was stricken with the same disease and was near death, but she survived and the only thing that remains is her slight limp.
Colin McGuire is the man that Faith has had a crush on since she was young, but no one knew - least of all Colin. So when Colin began dating Faith's younger sister Charity, sparks flew - in more ways than one!
With sister set against sister and WWI fast approaching, will this family survive?
I fell in love with these characters almost immediately and, by the time I reached the end, I wanted to pick up the next book right away - unfortunately for me, I had to wait almost a year to do it! The twists and turns in this novel are fantastic! I highly recommend that you read 'A Passion Most Pure' and make sure that you have 'A Passion Redeemed' ready to pick up as soon as you finish it!
I love inspirational fiction, but this one was EXTRA good. It made me cry several times and I couldn't put it down! I am very interested to seeing what happens to Charity, Mitch and the rest of the O'Connor family!
Absolutely loved this book by Julie Lessman! I have a lot to look forward to with the rest of the books in this series! Highly recommended!
Julie Lessman does an excellent job in displaying how if you keep your heart set on God things will work out for you! A Passion Most Pure is a mix of Romantic Passion and A love for God that keeps you interested and emotionaly involved in this AMAZING book!
