A Love Surrendered by Julie Lessman

A Love Surrendered
Winds of Change Series- #3
By Julie Lessman

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.
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?

Julie Lessman is the popular author of A Passion Most Pure, A Passion Redeemed, and A Passion Denied, as well as A Hope Undaunted, which was one of 2010's Booklist Top Ten Inspirational Fiction winners, and A Heart Revealed. Lessman has garnered several writing awards, including ten Romance Writers of America awards. She lives in Missouri.

Here is my review of this terrific novel:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Julie Lessman and her publisher for sending me a copy of "A Love Surrendered" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
Julie Lessman’s “A Love Surrendered” is the latest novel in her Winds of Change series chronicling the lives of the O’Connors of Boston.  Annie Kennedy wants to grow up and experience the life that her sister, Maggie, enjoyed during her college days.  Now that Annie and her little sister, Grace, are orphans and living with their spinster Aunt in Boston, Annie has the opportunity to frequent Maggie’s old stomping grounds and actually befriends her sister’s “friends”.  But how far will Annie go to grow up?  Especially when her heart races whenever she thinks about Steven O’Connor, who just happens to be her sister’s former beau.

Filled with lots of twists and turns and O’Connor family drama, this wonderful novel will make the reader feel like a fly on the wall watching one of the most passionate families in literature!  “A Love Surrendered” made me laugh and brought a tear to my eye.  And the heartwarming conclusion definitely brought a smile to my lips.
