A Hope Undaunted


I loved A Hope Undaunted by Julie Lessman!! It was my first book by this incredible author, and I look forward to reading her Daughters of Boston series that precedes this one!
Here is the description from amazon.com:

The 1920s are drawing to a close, and feisty Katie O'Connor is the epitome of the new woman--smart and sassy with goals for her future that include the perfect husband and a challenging career in law. Her boyfriend Jack fits all of her criteria for a husband--good-looking, well-connected, wealthy, and head-over-heels in love with her. But when she is forced to spend the summer of 1929 with Cluny McGee, the bane of her childhood existence, Katie comes face to face with a choice. Will she follow her well-laid plans to marry Jack? Or will she fall for the man she swore to despise forever? A Hope Undaunted is the engrossing first book in the WINDS OF CHANGE series from popular author Julie Lessman. Readers will thrill at the highly charged romance in this passionate story.

Romances are often slightly predictable, but that is what readers love: the girl getting his guy! In this book, though, while you may think you can guess what will happen, there are a number of twists and turns in the plot that keep you wondering. The characters are believable and lovable. The historical setting adds depth to the plot, which includes romance, love and loss, and friendships and family relationships. It also includes beautiful messages on prayer and giving your life to the Lord. There are strong Christian characters who share the love and peace of the Savior with others who are seeking and struggling. This is my favorite kind of book: one that is well-written with a strong Christian message. I am so excited that I have three more of her books on my shelf waiting for me! I would highly recommend this book and this author.

*I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

  1. I really liked this one too. Katie took a bit to warm up to, but she really redeemed herself. I can't wait for the next one, which I hope will be Sean's and Emma's story!
