A Hope Undaunted by Julie Lessman Book Review


A Hope Undaunted
by Julie Lessman
Winds of Change series
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3415-2
Available September 2010; $14.99

From the publisher:

A Hope Undaunted is the first book in the highly anticipated new series, Winds of Change, from award-winning author Julie Lessman.

This highly charged romance takes readers to Boston, while the 1920s are drawing to a close. Katie O'Connor is the epitome of the new woman—feisty, smart and sassy with goals for her future that include the perfect husband and a challenging career in law. Her boyfriend Jake fits all of her criteria for a husband—good-looking, well-connected, wealthy, and head-over-heels in love with her.

But when Katie is forced to spend the summer of 1929 with Luke McGee, the bane of her childhood existence, Katie comes face to face with a choice. Will she follow her well-laid plans to marry Jake? Or will she fall for the man she swore to despise forever?

My Review:

Wow – what a book!  The plot kept getting thicker and thicker, I thought I would burst at the seams.  I have to tell you – I cheated and read the back pages but still was surprised to learn what happened.

This is not a book for the light-hearted.  It has a complex theme and made me very aggravated at times.

With that said, I think it would make a great movie!  I’d love to sit back and watch it with my honey!  (Plus, he won’t read a book - so that would be the only way.)

It did have a lot of “adult” content and I would not recommend for the “young”.

I did appreciate the message of walking in the Lord, how He calls His people and the Faith message.  It very inspiring. 

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
