  • Obviously I am in the minority here, but I found this book to be just as ridiculous as the first one, except when it was promoting an appalling view of rape complete with victim blaming Then my eye rolling was replaced with anger.The soap opera continues this time with Charity, whom I despised in the first book I have NO IDEA why Mitch would ever fall in love with her after what she did to him in the first book and again in this book It always felt like lust, not love He was obviously physically [...]


  • 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 ima [...]


  • Wow Julie knows how to keep her readers on the edges of their seats I m about to start book three and am quite persuaded that the whole series is brilliant and I have NO idea how in the world Julie came up with so many fascinating twists and turns it s stunning My apologies this review is disorganized So it goes I feel like the family situation here is going to be super awkward, and wouldn t actually work in real life Faith and Charity were both engaged to their sister s future husbands at one p [...]


  • Lessman has a knack for drama and angst with a heavy dose of passion This story is no exception And like a soap opera, you never quite know who will end up with whom and what will happen next There is not a boring page in this entire novel The tension rocks There is a lot of pain and anger, as well as joy and deep sorrow But the longing is what gets to me Don t we all long for love And poor Charity was operating from a faulty point of view from the get go I found that quite profound, and well do [...]


  • When I read this for the first time I was very wary Charity was, to put it plainly, awful in A Passion Most Pure and I was a little scared that I would hate this book since she was the main character But I shouldn t have been worried, this is after all a Julie Lessman novel and I ended up loving it Charity was still a little hard to like at the beginning but we were also given the chance to see what made her act the way she did I loved watching as she grew into a wonderful heroine that you can t [...]


  • I must say, she is one of my new favorite authors I can t wait to read A Passion Denied I ve been meaning to read this one for several months after winning it from the author, but just hadn t had time till now Charity learns a valuable lesson in self worth and true love She tries to find it through the wrong men and seducing them to the point where it s about to cross the line for her, but realizes through some hard times she goes through, that she must face some harsh realities The things from [...]


  • This is the second book in the Daughters of Boston series, and I liked it a lot than the first novel in the series, A Passion Most Pure This novel is written well and a lot is revealed about some of the characters, particularly about Charity, that explain their behavior in the first novel of the series, which I d found problematic Anyway, while I still had a few issues with this novel, I appreciated being given of the characters backstories and seeing the characters mature and develop, which [...]


  • I ve had a hard time loving Charity ever since she pulled that stunt in A Passion Most Pure, and I wasn t sure if I could EVER like her, but I did Her character really developed in this book She went from just a spiteful, spoiled little girl to someone with deep, unhealed emotional scars This book was really well written and the story was wonderful There were plenty of twists and turns in the plot that kept me reading well into the night and the next morning many times I felt really connected to [...]


  • Absolutely incredible writing with a story that keeps you going until the end A great addition to the plot lines of the O Connor clan and their attachments I d say that so farA Passion Most Pure is still my favorite, but only because I m stubborn This is definitely a book that could be enjoyed alone, but for the understanding and purposes behind it s story I strongly urge any reader to start with the first book So, with that said, let me tell you that I really struggled with this book Not with e [...]


  • My Rating 4 out of 5 stars.My Overall Thoughts Impressions Charity O Connor is determined to win Mitch s heart There s just a few problems One, Mitch hates her and blames her for ruining his relationship with Faith, the only woman he s ever really loved And now, Charity has set her sights on him, he s furious Charity is a shallow girl used to getting her way She has no depth and no religion in her life And for Mitch, a pretty face just isn t enough Charity knows it won t be easy to win him over, [...]


  • I liked A Passion Most Pure, but I REALLY liked this book Often I find that authors make a great beginning only to fizzle out as the series progresses, but this book was even better and I suspect the next one will be as good as, if not better, than even the first two in the series I liked Charity O Connor from the first book, even though some people didn t because I could understand why she tricked Mitch Dennehy into kissing her in order to get back at her sister, Faith, for taking Collin s affe [...]


  • I can t believe this book has such high ratings It s terrible I have never hated a character so much as I hated Charity She was a selfish, catty, manipulative, immature little brat I found myself hoping that Mitch found himself a wonderful woman like Faith and would escape Charity s clutches She lied to him, tried to seduce him, had little regard for his spiritual beliefs, physically and emotionally abused the poor man The ending really sucked Charity finally surrendered to God and she got her m [...]


  • As I wrote in my A Passion Most Pure review, I was a little worried that I disliked Charity and A Passion Redeemed was mostly about her The I read, the less I thought I would end up liking Charity, but she redeemed herself I will admit, I ended up liking her so much that I cried during a couple of scenes, because I hurt for her Julie created characters so realistic, it s like I know them and they have became a part of my life I love it when I read books like that Charity has once again taught m [...]


  • I really struggled with how to rate this book I truly enjoy Julie Lessman s writing style and the fact that she shows Christians as real people who struggle with real passions, sins, and doubts I would have probably given this book 5 stars if I liked Charity s character at all Unfortunately through the majority of the book, I just kept hoping and praying that Mitch would dump her and fall hopelessly in love with Kathleen who I thought was a much likeable character and a believable choice as a [...]


  • Another great book by Julie Lessman Though I did enjoy this book, I didn t like it quite as much as A Passion Most Pure Charity was not my favorite character from APMP and I found my self being very annoyed with her in this book Couldn t she just get her act together, come to God and love Mitch the right way There were a few issues in the book with Charity s past and present that I was very suprised by, but found that they were bought up in a well written manner Plus, I loved catching up with Co [...]


  • Yes This book was just as good as the first I thought I would dread reading this book because it was pretty much all about Charity I didn t like her character in the first book, but I just loved how her story unraveled Her personal trials explained exactly why she was the way she was The title of the book is certainly suitable for the plot My heart broke for Charity towards the middle of the book because of her relationship with her father I m kind of sad that she didn t end up with Brady I was [...]


  • These books were almost not purchased due to the controversial opinions about the steamy sex in a Christian book.I ask Where was it The books were tastefully written, and frankly unless you are from a non human speciesmance and relationships are a part of the human race and may I addnctioned by God himself The relationships were within a marriage, and outside of marriagey kissing occurred Good heavens peoplet a grip on realityd yes, I am very much a Christian I enjoyed the series immenselyd they [...]


  • Charity O Conner knows what she wants and goes after it When that desire involves stubborn, thick headed Mitch Dennehy, she pulls out all the stops Tight skirt Silk blouse One rich millionaire s son to encourage a little healthy competition.But Mitch isn t interested At least he says he isn t interested He keeps threatening to ask someone else to marry him.Which means Charity may need a whole new arsenal.I like Mitch He is stubborn and thick headed Which is exactly what makes him a strong enough [...]


  • I totally LOVED this book I felt that after the first book there was no way I was going to like it was much, but after the first two chapters I was hooked I love the growth of each character in the story I felt that you even got to see Faith grow into a woman I cried at the end Partly because it was so sweet and partly because I didnt want it to end There is simply nothing better than books like these.


  • it was good, but I didn t like this sister as well Sometimes I wished her the happiness she wanted and other times I wanted her to grow up I also thought mitch was stupid for going back for Yes, a pretty face, but really He put up with an aweful lot I liked the continued story of Faith and Collin I liked the girl s family, I just didn t always like her.


  • Loved it I read 40 percent of the book in last night I just needed to know what was going to happen next I don t know which one out of the first two I like all I know is I enjoyed them both immensely I m just excited to read the next one bring it on


  • I didn t like this book at firstI did NOT like Charity s character from the first book and the way she was acting still was awful But as I got into it, I was drawnd by the end, I loved it almost as much as the first bookCharity grew as a character, and that s what I like best.


  • I just could not like this book I made myself finish it but even though Charity redeemed herself at the endI just could not bring myself to like her, as a matter of fact I could not stand her or Mitch They were just two very selfish people who I just couldn t relate to.


  • I became so attached to the charaters in book 1 I couldn t put book 2 down I cried when I read this book, but I loved it all the .



  • Just not a fan of Charity s character I know God says love the unlovable, and maybe that s what the author was going for, but I had a hard time reading this.



  • I loved the storyline and the continuation of the characters both in Boston and Ireland, but the Charity Mitch relationship needed to end when he returned to Ireland The ending seemed as if the author ran out of time and needed to wrap it up quickly, so Mitch came back and he immediately wants to marry her After the lies she told How they ever fell in love is quite questionable from the star The author had the beginning of a beautiful, healthy, truthful relationship for Charity with Brady, yet r [...]


  • Wow What a roller coaster ride So much love, emotion and heart break At one point I threw the book down with exasperation The characters are so real and make ridiculous mistakes just like we all make from time to time But the highs in the book are a wonderful counterpoint to the lows This is a novel of much depth and complexity Great read
