A Hope Undaunted - review

A Hope Undaunted by Julie Lessman is the first book in her new Winds of Change series. However, it immediately follows her Daughters of Boston series, so if you have had a chance to read A Passion Most Pure, A Passion Redeemed, and A Passion Denied already, you will especially enjoy A Hope Undaunted. However, it does stand alone quite nicely, being the story of the youngest sister in the O'Connor family. It is set in 1929 at a time when women were first being offered opportunities they hadn't had before. I found the historical aspect very interesting, and I also appreciated the spiritual depth of the plot.Available September 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Great review!

I also enjoyed A Hope Undaunted and am a big fan of Julie Lessman.

I found the characters to be fairly three dimensional and enjoyed the interaction between the two main characters, Katie and Luke - although at times I was surprised by Katie’s sudden abrupt turns. The O’Connor family is true to form in their larger-than-life sort of Irish personalities and entertaining as always.

I posted a more in-depth review of my own at
