A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing A Passion Most Pure (Revell January 1, 2008) by Julie Lessman


Julie Lessman is a debut author who has already garnered writing acclaim, including ten Romance Writers of America awards. She is a commercial writer for Maritz Travel, a published poet and a Golden Heart Finalist. Julie has a heart to write “Mainstream Inspirational,” reaching the 21st-century woman with compelling love stories laced with God’s precepts. She resides in Missouri with her husband and their golden retriever, and has two grown children and a daughter-in-law. A Passion Most Pure is her first novel.


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.

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. Collin is trying to win her sister Charity’s hand, and Faith isn’t sure she can handle the jealousy she feels. Full of passion, romance, rivalry, and betrayal, A Passion Most Pure is Book 1 of the Daughters of Boston series.

    “Collin McGuire is brash, cocky, and from the wrong side of the tracks, not to mention forbidden by her father.” ALL of these are GOOD reasons to STAY AWAY from this man, the last one having directions from God’s word, and that is to obey your parents. I also applaud Faith O’Connor for settling for nothing less than that romantic relationship that pleases God. GO, FAITH!! I am thrilled to my toes when I read reviews OR interviews about this book and can hardly WAIT to get my hands on it so my husband AND I can read it together,(I’ve been talking to him about this and he just grins). If this were a book give away, I’d shout out loud, PLEASE ENTER ME!

    Amen and amen! You tell ’em!

    And I WISH I had a copy to give away, but alas, I didn’t review this one.

    But I’ll be announcing another giveway tomorrow!

    Thanks for leaving a comment! I always look forward to hearing from you!
