Book Review: A Passion Denied

A spectacular ending to a thrilling series!

I don’t know how Julie Lessman does it, but every time I pick up one of her 470 page books, I am swept away and not released until I have set the book down. Not much gets done when I have a Lessman book in my hands!

The twists and turns this novel takes kept me riveted to the spot. The drama doesn’t end with just Lizzie and Brady, but spreads to all three married couples and expounds with each page turned. I cheered and moaned for each character, but primarily for Lizzie as she struggled to show Brady just how much she loved him.

I felt I have become a part of the O’Connor family and if it weren’t for the fact that Katy’s story is coming up, I would probably sit right down and cry.

The love expressed in the book made my heart race and my blood warm, but it was the spiritual message that I adore so much about Julie Lessman’s fiction. Her words speak to my heart and lift me up, they are the message I need to hear right then. Only through God could that be possible.

All I can say in closing it what I said at the beginning… A spectacular ending to a thrilling series. Really that is all that needs to be said!


  1. This sounds like a book I would definitely enjoy. Thanks for the review.


  2. I couldn't have said it better Casey!
    I loved this book I do believe it was my favorite out of the series! I cannot wait to read A Hope Undaunted I am absolutely dieing to read it!! It can not come out soon enough for me, If don't win it in one of her giveaways I'll probably be fighting my way through the store doors early in the morning to get to it or ordering it online first thing when It comes out!:)

    If you haven't read her books. Oh boy You are in for a real treat!
    She is an awesome author (my total favorite!), and one of the sweetest and kindest people you would ever want to meet she really cares about her readers!:)

  3. Oh yeah, and I meant to say I agree with you completely If she wasn't going to write more about the O'Conners I think I would just sit down, and cry as well.
    I feel like a part of there family, and have completely fallen in love with them:)
