A PASSION DENIED
Julie Lessman’s books never disappoint. This third volume in The Daughters of Boston series was a gut-wrenching roller coaster ride.
Elizabeth O’Connor, younger sister to Faith and Charity of books 1 and 2, has been in love with John Brady since she was 14 years old. But he hasn’t a clue, treating her like the little sister he always wanted, and sharing with her his love of literature and of God. All of a sudden, Lizzie is a grown woman and wants more from John than friendship. He claims he doesn’t return the feeling. Little does Lizzie know that he is in love with her, but won’t allow himself to tell her on account of his painful past. She refuses to give up on him. Can their love survive through it all before John gives up on himself?
A Passion Denied pulled me in from the beginning, and feeling at home with the setting and characters. I became so engrossed in the story that each character’s emotions gripped me by the collar and wouldn’t let go until the very end.
If you’ve read the other two volumes in Julie Lessman’s series, then you won’t want to miss this one. If not, I urge you to read them all, and start from the beginning. You won’t be sorry.
