Prolificreader Faith thought she knew her sister- until she finds her in the bushes with the man Faith loves. From page one the rift can only grow wider as these two sisters battle for the same man. The trials in this Irish American family only escalate as loving sisters turn on each other, their love for the same man bringing out the absolute worst in their relationship. Pushing all involved to the breaking point.

This was my first book by Julie Lessman and I was not disappointed. This book is long, 477 pages and I didn't know if she could hold the tension through the entire novel. I was never bored during one page during the story. There were times I felt I was eavesdropping on the characters, my heart breaking at times and others so mad I could have throttled one or two myself. There is something to be said of an author who draws forth a reader's emotions, Julie knows how to wield that all too fine tool and does it masterfully. This book certainly does seep passion from nearly every page, albeit appropriate, nothing sensual, but she knows how to spark the imagination and captivate the reader into the story. Never was I sorrier to see a book come to it's end. I am so glad there is a sequel!

Anonymous This is a story of a Boston Irish Catholic family in the year just prior to and all through WWI. It especially focuses the two oldest daughters, who are dating age and the parents, whose 20 year marriage is still full of passion, not only for each other but for God. To say that there is sibling rivalry between the girls is to put in mildly. However, in the end, everyone lives happily ever after--and much as I like happily ever after, given other things that happened in the book, this one was almost too happy--one of those 'trust God and everything will be great in the end' type of things. I really liked the overall message of the book--that it is by following the rules set down by God for romantic relationships that we will achieve the relationships that give us the love we seek, including the passion. Disobey those rules and we open ourselves up to using and being used by others. I enjoyed the story and had it been about a Protestant family, I'd say it was about what I expected--an enjoyable light read. The characters were a little one-dimensional (the good sister had few if any bad characteristics and the bad sister had little good in her). The problem is that the book is about a Catholic family, yet for the most part, they acted like the main market for this book--Evangelical Protestants. I hope that some of the problems with the book are due to the author's lack of familiarity with Catholicism especially as it was practiced at that time, rather than a deliberate choice to mis-represent it. She has a main character, one of the teeanged daughters of this devout Catholic family, going over to the house of the Protestant next door and reading the Protestant's Bible to her. That would not have happened. Catholics didn't read the King James Bible the teenaged girl would have known that and if she forgot, her parents would certainly have reminded her. On both Christmas and Easter the family went to mass at noon--after breakfast. At that time you had to fast from midnite to receive communion at mass, and its likely the family would have wanted to go to communion on Easter especially. It's not inpossible that they went to noon mass, just unlikely. At one point the oldest daughter, the religious one, has a date on Friday nite. They were in Ireland at the time. The author mentions they were eating chicken. My guess is that in Ireland at that time, no restaurant would have served chicken on Friday because no one would order it--Catholics didn't eat meat on Fridays. Good Friday and fasting is metioned, but attending Stations of the Cross or Veneration of the Cross on Good Friday was not. AT one point a daughter was reading from her prayer book--but the scripture quoted was from the KJV, not the Catholic Douay-Rhiems. There are other things that I wonder if were left out because they didn't agree with the author's religion, or the faith of the majority of the people for whom she is writing. At one point a character who is practicing his faith only to impress the family is told by the 'good' daughter that he should go to confession. He refuses, saying that just because he is acting this way to impress the family doesn't mean he is going to tell his sin to any priest. I don't have any problem with that, after all, why should someone who has no faith confess his sins, and repent of them? However, there are a couple of occassions where members of the family sin seriously and repent, but no mention is made of them going to confession. Any decent Catholic of that era was in the confessional regularly and would have certainly sought it out in the case of serious sin. We hear the family praying on many occassions, but they never make the sign of the cross. The family is told that a member of it died, and no one prays for him. I wouldn't say that A Passion Most Pure is critical of Catholicism but all the characters who are just going through the motions of religion are Catholic. The Protestants who are mentioned are people of faith w

Geralyn Having recently been snowed in, or rather in my case, snowed out of my house for a week, I wondered what it would be like to be snowed in with a set of characters from one of the books I've read recently. Hands down, I'd rather be with the O'Connor family from A Passion Most Pure than any other. And here's why.Set against the backdrop of world war one in 1916, A Passion Most Pure spills off the pages and into one's heart and mind like butter. It had a way of gripping me like no book had in many years. And let me tell you, it takes a lot to hold me especially when I'm working on my own stuff. Emotionally compelling and just as satisfying, the story revolves around Faith O'Conner and her younger sister Charity who both have their cap set for the same man. One the girls parents would rather they both leave alone. Collin McGuire isn't exactly the type of chap to write home about in their book, let alone bring through the front door. But that's exactly what happens.Faith's ever growing affection for Collin is kept hidden in her heart for many years and to suddenly find her sister Charity wrapped in his arms one day shatters her world. To see Collin then court Charity nearly rips it apart. Why can she not just let it go? What is it about him that so draws her? And why does he have to be in love with her sister? But wait! Collin seems to be asking himself some of the same questions. But he's asking them about Faith! Ohhhh now we have a pickle!The thing I loved about this book is the strong family core of the O'Connors. They love and laugh together, cry together, fight together. They are the stuff of the heart. The grist and guts that holds a family together. They are steadfast in their love for each other and that, along with an understanding of God's forgiveness pulls them through an extremely difficult time. I've never started a rating system when I review a book, but if I did, and scored on a scale of 1 (being don't waste your time) and 5 (being keep it on the shelf and never lend it out!) I'd have to give Julie's book a five! The copy I read was loaned to me and under penalty of death too I might add. I need to remember to get it back to its rightful owner. One of these days ...In the mean time I'm going to dig into A Passion Redeemed, the second in the Daughters of Boston Series. After reading A Passion Most Pure, you'll have to have more of this new author's incredible talent! Thank Heaven it's a series!

skmfuturevet I first saw this book on the shelf at my local Christian Book Store. I was quickly enticed by the wonderful cover and enthralled by the caption on the back cover: "She's found the love of her life. Unfortunately, he loves her sister." I bought the book and was stoked to crack it open.



I immediately fell in love with each unique character in this book! They were so whimsical and real. Julie Lessman's writing style is 'right at home.' It is neither too hard to read, or too easy and boring. She is a great writer, and I did not find any blatant errors in her copy (something I am notorious for). Once I got into the book, I couldn't stop reading it! I became obsessed with it! It is an amazing book. I read it in three days; I would lay on my bed for hours upon hours totally enthralled with the wonderful characters and plot.



This is the type of book that is perfect for cuddling up under a pile of blankets and reading on hours end! That is exactly what I did! The plot is interesting, keeping the reader focused and wondering what will happen next; the reader never wants to stop reading.



It is a romantic novel, but it does not go into any unnecessary details. It also has encouraging Bible verses generously strung across the pages. This book is both encouraging and thrilling. It perfectly combines romance with God's word and demonstrates God's passion and desire for everyone, no matter the circumstances He finds them in. It has great ideals and context.



This book also has no profanity in it (which i find very commendable). Instead, the author simply writes, "...he cursed under his breath" to get her point accross.



Like I have said, this book is a romantic novel. Yet, the author does not go into unneseccary 'details.' It is mentioned in the book, however, that the kisses are very passionate, there is some groping, it is obvious/hinted that her parents make love once or twice (says something like they went to their room together), and Charity mentions her cleavage as she looks at herself in the mirror.



A Passion Most Pure was definitely one of my favorites, and I will certainly read the next book in this wonderful series: A Passion Redeemed. I love how, with this series, the reader is allowed to fall in love with every character, and be able to continue the beloved characters' journey in the next books. It's like the adventure never ends!



Wonderful Novel! *****

AshliHitchens If you are a fan of romance, intrigue, emotion, historical adventure and edge of your seat drama, this is a MUST read. It instantly became one of my favorite reads! The saga centers around the O'Connor's, a tight knit Irish family living in early 1900s Boston.



Be prepared! This book will bless your socks off! =)



Bringing a new meaning to sibling rivalry, Faith and Charity couldn't be more opposite had they purposed it themselves.



Faith is quiet and gentle spoken whose heart desperately want to follow God's precepts for her life in every area. Her parents, Patrick and Marcy, have given her the greatest example of what a marriage should be. Tended with love and care and centered on God and family.



Charity is gorgeous! She lives for the thrill of the moment and craves the attention that is often given freely to her by those of the opposite gender. Her outgoing personality hide her true insecurities as jealousy and anger fuel her feelings toward her older sister.



Faith feels shattered when she learns that Collin, the man she has loved for nearly as long as she can remember, is courting her younger sister. And even as he is vying for their father's approval with Charity, Collin suddenly notices the older sister as never before and makes her the object of his affections.



Faith knows that the kind of feelings Collin has run deep. But, she longs for a passion most pure. Caught between her beliefs and the man she has loved for so long, Faith must make the decision to stand firm in her trust in God's plan for her life or give in to herself.



War strikes and sends away the men they love.



New people enter their lives and everything seems to change around them.



An amazing story of hurt and healing. And the triumphant glory of God's will in all of our lives.

harstan In 1916 Boston, godless Collin McGuire and deeply religious Charity OConnor apparently are a love match to the chagrin of her sister Faith, who also is attracted to the wild Irishman. Faith knows she has no prayer of competing with her much prettier sibling so she hides her jealousy, envy, and desire behind the rationalization that their father specifically forbids this rogue from courting either of his daughters and besides the rowdy Collin does not believe in the Lord.----------- Collin initially finds Charity as the more attractive sister although he acknowledges Faith is pretty he secretly dates Charity knowing her father would prevent them if he openly tried to see her. However as the Great War enflames Europe and America struggles to remain neutral, he begins to notice the inner beauty of Faith and soon gets distracted by Charitys older sister as he knows he must make up his mind because either way their father will say no.---------------- The first Daughters of Boston tale is an entertaining historical romance that brings to life Boston during WWI just prior to Americas entry into the Great War to end all wars. The story line is loaded with real events from 1916 such as Wilson breaking off diplomatic relationships with Germany that bring the era in Massachusetts alive, but also somewhat slows down the pace as if Julie Lessman could not decide between a pure historical or a romantic historical. Still the prime four characters are fully developed and their feelings seem genuine so that fans of early twentieth century romances with plenty of interwoven historical information will feel transported to New England as the United States slowly prepares to go over there.------------ Harriet Klausner

Anonymous Passion is an amazing gift that has been granted to us mere beings from our heavenly Father. It is a story set in Southie Boston and Ireland during the time of the First Great World War, but the issues broached are timeless in the worlds of men and women. When I first saw the cover of this book, it looked like something that I would enjoy. It was when I first got my hands on a copy and read the back and examined the cover in more detail, that I was fairly certain that this story was definitely something that I would enjoy. A Passion Most Pure is by far, one of the best books that I have ever read in my entire life. I like it better than I liked Francine Rivers' Redeeming Love (Now that's saying a lot). My favorite Christian Historical Fiction novel that actually was my gateway to my current addiction was Liz Curtis Higgs' Thorn in My Heart. I literally consumed the entire series within days of their publish-ment and cried when I had to wait months for more. I doubt than anything can replace my love for Liz' books, but this book sure does come close and I can hardly wait the next few months until the sequel A Passion Redeemed is released! This story told by fabulous debut author Julie Lessman involves many lives and all the intricate parts of each individual. Meaning, each heart and daydream, every fear and nightmare, as well as every prayer and hope is brought to life and is completely real. On a personal note for me, I can really relate to portions of the storyline (and I am sure that other readers can as well). This book is full of lessons and full of scriptures of life that are so relevant and will be a blessing to any reader. I strongly recommend it.

Deborah_K Christan romance used to be happy endings and chaste couples. Many times in traditional Christian fiction, the characters seem fake because they keep their feelings hidden. What I loved best about this book is the fact that emotions are allowed and shown in great detail. This is one of the most edgiest and steamiest Christian fiction books I have ever read. And I thought it was wonderful! It's about time we realize that Christians have emotions are capable of showing love and desire. Fans of Deeanne Gist will love this book because it falls into that same genre. The characters were very real and multidimensional. This love triangle really manages to keep the reader on their toes with all the drama and conflict that surrounds them. I really felt for Faith throughout the whole story. Her emotions are realistic and I love how she tackles the challenging job of working for a newspaper. Colin was a great character because kept my attention throughout the book making me dislike him on one page and then rooting for him on the next. But I'm sorry but I really hated Charity. She bugged me from the beginning of the story and just kept irritating me throughout. Her attitude and actions were so 'Mean Girl' like. I am looking forward to reading the next book where she gets redeemed, but I do hope that she gets what's coming to her first! This book is a wonderful read and at 477 pages, it's a great way to spend a rainy day curled up in a chair. This is one of the best debut novels that I have ever read. I am highly looking forward to more books from Julie Lessman.

Anonymous Faith OConnor and Collin McGuire are old friends. Faith has always thought Collin was special but only when he starts dating her sister does she realize just how deeply in love with him she is. Collin is a playboy, which is why Faith has never bothered to hope anything could happen between her and him, because she refuses do dally with such a man. But now hes dallying with her sister and Faith is trying to save her sister, who doesnt want to be `saved thank you very much. But when she interferes, she draws Collins attention to herself. She stays away from him but suddenly Collin isnt staying away from her. And her sister Charity, once she realizes Faith is smitten, delights in twisting the knife in her sisters already wounded heart. A Passion Most Pure is set against the backdrop of the impending danger of World War I, every young man is in danger and every one who loves freedom believes they need to be part of the fight in Europe. A secondary story between Faiths parents gives this fast paced, tempestuous romance a wonderful depth. Faith sees her parents love and wants a love like that for herself. I have rarely enjoyed writing a book review more. A Passion Most Pure is wonderful. Funny and heart breaking and joyful and intense by turns, and sometimes all at the same time.
