Review: A Love Surrendered by Julie Lessman

A Love Surrendered by Julie Lessman
Revell / October, 2012

About the book:

Orphaned in Iowa, Annie Kennedy moves to Boston to stay with her spinster aunt. She longs for romance to fill the void left by her parents' death. But when she falls hard for Steven O'Connor, the man who broke an engagement to her sister, Annie is worried. Will he break her heart too when he discovers who she really is?

With heart-pounding romance, intense family drama, and emotional twists and turns, A Love Surrendered is everything Julie Lessman's many fans have been waiting for.

My rating:
My thoughts:

Normally I like to read series in order, but unfortunately I wasn't able to with A Love Surrendered. Even though I haven't read the first two books in the Winds of Change series (A Hope Undaunted and A Heart Revealed), I was still able to follow along pretty well (probably because I knew most of the characters from the Daughter's of Boston series). Although I now know who ended up with whom from the previous two books, so I recommend reading this series in order.

I didn't know much about Steven O'Connor before reading A Love Surrendered, so it was great to read his story and find out more about his life. Of course I also loved getting updates about the rest of the O'Connor family and, let me just say, Charity made me laugh so much during this book!! She is definitely still one of my favorite characters!

A Love Surrendered kept me entertained throughout and more than once on the edge of my seat - a few times I just didn't know what was going to happen! There were a lot of twists in this book (a few I saw coming) and it was just overall a great read! I'm hoping for future books with the O'Connors! ;)

Same as with the previous Julie Lessman books I've read, I only recommend this book for mature readers because there is a lot of "passion" in it. So, if you enjoy historical books with romance, than I think you might like A Love Surrendered (I know I did!). I do, however, think you might want to read the Daughter's of Boston series first, because it's connected to the Winds of Change series.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*

  1. I'm so glad you liked this! I hope you do go back and read the first two books in the Winds of Change series. Katie is a hoot and a mess! ha! I am also looking forward to seeing what you think of A Light in the Window.

    1. Thanks, Julie! I do plan on reading the first two books when I have time. :) I'm really looking forward to Katie's story. :)
