Product Description

One Woman. Two Men.
One stirs her pulse and the other her faith.
But who will win her heart?

Marceline Murphy is a gentle beauty with a well-founded aversion to rogues. But when two of Boston's most notorious pursue her, she encounters a tug-of-war of the heart she isn’t expecting. Sam O’Rourke is the childhood hero she’s pined for, the brother of her best friend and a member of the large, boisterous family to which she longs to be a part. So when his best friend Patrick O’Connor joins in pursuit of her affections, the choice seems all too clear. Sam is from a family of faith and Patrick is not, two rogues whose wild ways clash head-on with Marcy’s—both in her faith and in her heart.

While overseeing the Christmas play fundraiser for the St. Mary’s parish soup kitchen—A Light in the Window—Marcy not only wrestles with her attraction to both men, but with her concern for their spiritual welfare. The play is based on the Irish custom of placing a candle in the window on Christmas Eve to welcome the Holy Family, and for Marcy, its message becomes deeply personal. Her grandmother Mima cautions her to guard her heart for the type of man who will respond to the "light in the window," meaning the message of Christ in her heart. But when disaster strikes during the play, Marcy is destined to discover the truth of the play’s message first-hand when it becomes clear that although two men have professed their undying love, only one has truly responded to “the light in the window.”



What people are saying about the works of Julie Lessman ...

"At last, the prequel I've been longing for ..."
-- Mary Connealy, bestselling author of the Kincaid Bride Series


"A Passion Most Pure is a frolicking read brimming with humor, desire, and addled affections, and guarantees to satisfy the most romantic of hearts." -- Tamera Alexander, bestselling author of Rekindled, Revealed, and Remembered.

"A thought-provoking yet very enjoyable read, one I hated to put down and returned to over and over with great eagerness and anticipation. I can't wait for the next one in this series." -- Kathleen Morgan, author of A Fire Within and As High as the Heavens.

"In a powerful and skillfully written novel, Lessman exposes raw human emotions, proving once again that it's through our greatest pain that God can lead us to our true heart, revealed and restored. Thoroughly enthralling!" -- Maggie Brendan, author of the Heart of the West series.

"Julie Lessman brings all her passion for romance rooted in her passion for God to A Heart Revealed. Emma Malloy is her finest heroine yet. These characters, with their own personal struggles and the ignited flame of an impossible love, fill the pages of this powerful, passionate, fast-paced romance." -- Mary Connealy, author of the Lassoed in Texas and the Montana Marriages series.

"What an interesting mix of characters. Rather than a single boy-meets-girl romance, Julie Lessman's latest novel takes readers on an emotional roller coaster with several couples -- some married, some yearning to be married--as they seek to embrace love, honor the Lord, and uncover a dark truth that's been hidden for a decade. Readers who long for passion in their love stories will find it in abundance here!"--Liz Curtis Higgs, bestselling author of Thorn in My Heart.

"Lessman writes my favorite kind of book: the kind I can't put down--a book that has a heroine with unforgettable spunk, a romance with undeniable sparks, and a family that will remain in your heart long after you turn the last page."-- Siri Mitchell, author of She Walks in Beauty.

"Captivating characters, richly drawn, along with riveting and thought-provoking scenes--A Hope Undaunted will leave you breathless with anticipation. Julie Lessman has written a novel that resonates throughout with constant reminders of God's unconditional love."-- Maggie Brendan, author of Heart of the West series.

The author has given us a beautiful story of a young girl who truly wanted to honor God in every area of her life. Despite this desire, Marcy found herself struggling with her affections for her best friend's brother, Sam, who she was attracted to since she was a child. Then Sam's best friend, Patrick, informed him that he was interested in Marcy and so the battle begins. They made a bet as to which one she would choose. These boys had one thing in common - they were both travelling the wrong road. They were womanizers and drunks who had no intention of commitment. Who would she choose? Would she choose either of them? Her choice was about to take her down a long road that would be strewn with sorrow, heartache and disappointment. She was so close to missing out on God's best for her, but because of her heart for God, He honoured her and directed her steps. You will enjoy this story as you walk with Marcy through the highs and lows of her love life. One statement almost left me in shock. I found myself saying "No it can't be. That can't happen." Before the end I was pleased with the outcome. Sit back and relax, it's a great ride.

An absolute cannot-put-down, perfect-for-Christmas or any-time-of-year novel.

Turn after twist, revaluation after shocking revelation, heart rending and heart-stirring, thought-provoking. Fascinating, discombobulating. One is always left wondering what will happen next (even if you have your suspicions, which will often be wrong), how it will ever possibly turn out.

You cheer characters on, shake your head in disgust at their actions, are shocked by what just happened, certain but uncertain as to how it will end, entranced. Curve ball after curve ball with absolutely excellent character development of starkly individual and unique characters. A story of affections, uncertainties, decisions, actions, revelations...I'm in love ;)

This would make an awesome Christmas (or pre-Christmas, or birthday, or just-because...) gift for anyone. Not your typical Christmas novel. Decidedly different.

This, for so many reasons is one of my favourite novels of all time (and I've read 'em all)!

Thank you, Julie Lessman. You knocked this one out of the park, beyond any and all expectations.

Having read every book published by this author so far, I think it's now safe to say that if you need a good read, a Julie Lessman book is not only a good- but a great option to consider.

I enjoyed reading ALITW. I mostly found it very hard to put down as I finished it in one day. I loved getting a glimpse of Julie's passion for God and for romance in this well-written, heartwarming tale that will most surely have readers sighing when they turn the last page.

Patrick and Marcy truly make a memorable couple. However!
I don't know maybe it was because I read the other books in the saga- and I knew who Marcy belonged with- but I found her a bit naive, impulsive and not very likable at times with her harsh judgements toward Patrick. *Sigh*. And needless to say that I REALLY disliked that O'Rouke fellow.

But Patrick O'Connor... oh, my can we all say 'FINE' please? A top-notch, admirable and handsome in and out hero. My favorite character in the book, no less. I found myself taking his side again and again throughout the story. Kudos, Mrs. Lessman! (Ladies, y'all will have to read this to believe it- I am not exaggerating!...)

The unforgettable ending to this story crowned it all in such a lovely way, reminding readers once again, that a blessing from God can be found in the most unexpected way. (Brought tears to my eyes..)

Oh, beautiful love.

Bravo Julie! Can't wait to see what's next.

This is my honest review. Many thanks to the author for an e-copy of this book.
