And although the sparks are there, Mitch refuses to fan the coals of a potential relationship with his ex-fiancee's sister. But Charity has a plan to turn up the heat and she always gets what she wants--one way or another. Is revenge so sweet after all? Or will Charity get burned?… (mere)

This is the second book that I have read by Julie Lessman in The Daughters of Boston series. I loved it, too! In the first book, Charity was not a character that I liked, but by the time I finished this book, she touched my heart. It made me think how we tend to see the outward man of those we first encounter them and how, through time and prayer, we can see redeeming attributes of the inward man. When one sees the whole picture--a spiritual journey that Charity travels to find that redemption and love that she so needs--the story ends and you can't wait for the next book! Love the O' Connors. I was happy to have all 3 books available when I sat down to read these books so I didn't have to wait to see what happens in the lives of this family. What a wonderful reading experience! ( )

"A Passion Redeemed", by award-winning author, Julie Lessman, is the second novel in The Daughters of Boston trilogy - detailing the lives of the O'Connor family members. Those readers taking a dislike to selfish, vindictive, daughter Charity, in the first novel, "A Passion Most Pure" will be pleasantly surprised, and emotionally sympathetic, with her character, in "A Passion Redeemed".

Each of the elements for which Julie's novels are known: passion, angst, unexpected twists and turns, redemption, life-like characters, tears, laughter, prayer, and making God central in one's life - are abundant in "A Passion Redeemed". Each of her novels I read, creates an even deeper love for the O'Connor family and the writing style of it's author - and leaves a warm, cozy feeling, a renewed appreciation for family, and a continued vow to live my life for God!!

I eagerly anticipate reading each novel written by Julie - I will be a life-long reader of her novels, reading them over and over again!! She never disappoints, and each novel gets a five star rating from me!! ( )

'A Passion Redeemed' definitely redeemed Charity with me! I will tell you, had I known this book would have been focused on Charity when I finished 'A Passion Most Pure', I probably wouldn't have been anxiously awaiting this book. I love how Julie takes a character that I despised and turned her into a character that I now adore - I would have to say that is nothing short of AMAZING!

In 'A Passion Most Pure' I can honestly say that I couldn't stand her and many times just wanted to slap her! I couldn't imagine how I could possibly like this book, because of who the main character was going to be. But this book has definitely changed my view of Charity and, in fact, she in now my favorite character.

In this book I learned that while Charity may be beautiful and able to wrap men around her finger, she most desires her father's love and attention - the way he treats her sister, Faith. This among a few other things explains why she behaves the way she does.

'A Passion Redeemed' is wonderful and has become my favorite novel! I highly recommend this book - but make sure you read 'A Passion Most Pure' first, otherwise you might spoil the story for yourself. ( )

Charity O'Connor is by far one of the most complex characters I have ever encountered. The villain that I despised in "A Passion Most Pure" now becomes the heroine I love in "A Passion Redeemed". In all honesty, I was not sure how Julie Lessman was going to pull off such a monumental task! With the finesse of a true story teller, she heart-breakingly weaves the story of Charity O'Connor, showing that no one is beyond the point of redemption. Another story filled with passion, deceit, and the God who loves us more than we can imagine. Another MUST READ for Julie! ( )

Charity O’Connor puts all of her worth and meaning of life into her outward beauty. Longing for a man who refuses her advances, Charity does everything within her power with tragic results. Will she finally turn to the love of God, or blame Him when she doesn’t get her way?
Often in a series of books, characters who played a minor role in the first and then get a major role in the second often come across as perfect in the first and suddenly flawed in the second. It is often what makes series difficult for me to really get into right away. But for all those who read A Passion Most Pure, we know Charity is flawed and I was looking forward to how Julie Lessman would redeem this poor, lost girl. She did it marvelously.
This book was a breath of fresh air. Often in books the character is put through great tragedy to learn their lesson, but in this case Charity went through great personal and internal struggles, that continued to build until she wasn’t sure where to turn. It made for great reading and a wonderful different perspective.
What Lessman book isn’t complete without passion? Julie keeps it Biblical, while showing the tragedies of stepping outside the boundaries of the Lord and the sweetness of true and pure love inside the Lord’s blessing. I could go on forever! Another wonderful novel and I can’t wait to read book three!! ( )
