A Passion Most Pure Review


Christian Fiction

A Passion Most Pure

Julie Lessman


Faith O’Connor, the eldest daughter in the O’Connor family has overcome many obstacles – losing her twin to polio, being ridiculed due to her braces after her own bout with polio and many other ups and downs. These things have drawn her closer to God. And she has strived to be a good Christian, trying to follow God’s plan for her life. But her younger sister, Charity, is not making it any easier! She is always picking on her and now she is secretly going out with the one man Faith loves – Collin McGuire. But Collin wants nothing to do with God and he is engaged to Charity! Can Faith realize and learn that everything works together for good for those who love God and that God will give her the desires of her heart if she desires Him the most?
This book was a wonderful read. Set in the 1916’s, with the war brewing overseas. The characters are created with flavor and life. Faith is somebody that everybody can relate to. She wants and strives to live a Godly life, but many times her temper gets the best of her. She can also be an example to many women. In a time when many of the young women and her own sister are going the wrong way, she takes a stand to stay pure for the man God has ordained for her. Even though the book initially sounds like a soap opera (Faith loves Collin, but Collin is engaged to Charity and so on), it really makes the readers think and analyze their own lives. This world is not going to get any better. Promiscuity, immorality and sin are only going to increase as the years pass. It is time that Christians decide and choose to do things God’s way rather than following the world. It is time for all of us to stand up and declare along with Joshua, “But as for me and my household we will serve the Lord!”
I am definitely looking forward to the next installment in the Daughter’s of Boston series!
