ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
Truly, this book has left me breathless. A first novel? Unbelievable!! This book captures the very essence of what God intends for love to be between His children!! The passion, the truth, the poignancy of true love between a man and a woman is captured within this story! Julie Lessman does a beautiful job of showing the shallow imitation of love that human lust represents in this fallen world. She sets it in beautiful, passionate contrast to what physical love can be like between two people who love each other and find the oneness God speaks of when He teaches about the intimacy of marriage between His children.
