A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman

I finished this book on Friday night and I really enjoyed it. The further I got into the book the more I was hooked. The last third of the book I didn't want to put the book down.

Book Description
Refusing to settle for anything less than a romantic relationship that pleases God, Faith O'Connor steels her heart against her desire for the roguish Collin McGuire. But when Collin tries to win her sister Charity's hand, Faith isn't sure she can handle the jealousy she feels. To further complicate matters, Faith finds herself the object of Collin's affections, even as he is courting her sister. The Great War is raging overseas, and a smaller war is brewing in the O'Connor household. Full of passion, romance, rivalry, and betrayal, A Passion Most Pure will captivate readers from the first page. Book 1 of the Daughters of Boston series.

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book, I enjoyed Faiths journey and her devotion to God. Julie has writen about real people with real emotions and shows how Christians also struggle with there passions. I liked the way Faith was tempted by Collin but choose to honour God and explained to Collin her commitment to God.
At the same time Collin is courting her sister Charity. There is a love triangle forming and the story deals with this situation. Also with the coming war we also see what the impact of America going to war has on a family. After America joins the war the O'Connor family move to Ireland to stay with Faiths Grandmother and Great Grandmother till the war is over. Here another part of the story takes place. There are several interesting plot twists in this book which made it a great read. I look forward to the next book in the series.
If you like the classic's like Gone with the Wind you would love this book.
This book is a great read and I would give it a 4 and a half out of 5.
