Orphaned in Iowa, Annie Kennedy moves to Boston to stay with her spinster aunt. She longs for romance to fill the void left by her parents’ death. But when she falls hard for Steven O’Connor, the man who broke an engagement to her sister, Annie is worried. Will he break her heart too when he discovers who she really is?With heart-pounding romance, intense family drama, and emotional twists and turns, A Love Surrendered is everything Julie Lessman’s many fans have been waiting for.
My Comments: This is a great book, although Julie’s books tend to be a tad too long for my attention span. I stayed with it, and am I ever glad I did! 400 pages of great story told! I cried, I laughed, I wished I knew these people. I have never personally known a Catholic who had a personal relationship with Christ, so that was good for me to read. I’ve known practicing Catholics, but none who talked like the characters in this book. Enlightening. The relationships are somewhat on the edgy side, but so realistic. The struggles are real and the feelings are real. I like that we see characters change and mature. Of course the O’Connor family is prominent in this book as they are in Lessman’s other books. I give this book 5 stars and highly recommend it – especially to young adults (although I’m a granny and I enjoyed it – the characters span the ages.
