One thought on “A Heart Revealed

  1. 5 stars does NOT do this novel justice And I am completely unbiased in that statement.So few books stir me to feel hemmed in by our rating system and make me wish to burst from that bubble and rate a book the way I REALLY want to rate it Like with A Heart Revealed a story worthy of way than 5 stars But it deserves every single one of those glowing yellows.I am a diehard Lessman fan, but none of her novels have been able to knock A Passion Most Pure her debut novel from the coveted favorite posi [...]

  2. Julie Lessman.Not that I know how she does it, but every time Julie Lessman writes a book, the last book I read of hers gets bumped to my second all time favorite book I read in a blog interview a while back about how she d initially made up the character of Emma Malloy just to fill a role until the moment she wrote Emma meeting Sean O Connor over dinner at the O Connor household And I tell you I don t know if it s just because I ve been training my brain for so long to think like a writer and n [...]

  3. Scratch what I wrote in my review of A Hope Undaunted I can and I will pick a favourite O Connor book, and it s this one Sweet mother of pearl, it was just wonderful I was completely swept away from page one, and thoroughly enjoyed myself until the end.All previous little nitpicky things from the other books magically had no appearance here except for the earlobe nipping there seems to be no doing without that No passionate kissing between the H h at random innoportune inapropriate moments, no f [...]

  5. It was good I like Emma, but I would like to see a little wit or something I really liked her as a person It was hard for me to relate to her I had a hard time understanding her thinking process I actually liked Charity in this book, I think for the first time I liked how it told there story You didn t hear much about Faith and Elizabeth, but still saw them interact That was nice, but I admit although I liked that touch, I often skimmed or even skipped it I did feel like the story of Elizabeth [...]

  12. Ask anyone, and they will tell you that I m one of Julie Lessman s most devoted readers and that s not an exaggeration and loved every one of her books So why didn t I give A Heart Revealed 5 stars Probably because I just didn t get to see Sean And Emma as I d hoped,and instead we got a look at the other couples a bit than usual The story picks up where A Hope Undaunted left off Katie and Luke have finally been married, and the next one up on the marital chopping block is sweet tempered Sean, w [...]

  13. A HEART REVEALED, book two in the Winds of Change series, was like a carnival full of emotional roller coasters While the heights were breathtaking, some of the twists were jarring than entertaining.Emma Malloy had spent ten years trying to put the violent and tragic events of her past behind her With friends like the O Connor s, she has thrived in Boston, pushing the events that happened in Dublin to the recesses of her mind What she didn t plan for was her deepening feelings for Sean O Connor [...]

  17. This book was very different from what I had anticipated It s part of a series, and I m not really sure that it can be read as a standalone novel There were a lot of characters to keep straight right from the very beginning It was a struggle to keep up with all of the different couples and become invested in all of them at the same time I had thought the book would focus on Emma and Sean, but there was just as much time and pages devoted to the other two couples as well I m sure this contributes [...]

  18. Catching up with the O Connor clan is always a treat Lessman s family saga continues in A Heart Revealed a sweet story of grace and godliness, as well as the struggle to accept and act in both Hearts are certainly revealed in several marriages and friendships throughout this story, and Lessman s sensitivity makes the result ultimately uplifting.Reading through this book is like reading through plenty of case studies for various personality theories The pages are rich in each character s personal [...]

  19. I am still fairly new to Julie Lessman s books Having missed her entire Daughter s of Boston series, I didn t start reading her books until the first book in the Winds of Change series, A Hope Undaunted A Heart Revealed is the second book in the series and after enjoying A Hope Undaunted, I was really looking forward to this book I have slightly mixed feelings about this one On one hand, this book was a little slow to me I don t mean slow as in boring, don t misunderstand It s just that it took [...]

  20. 1 Reasons you chose this bookI read the first one in the series, A Hope Undaunted my review and absolutely loved the main character and her story Agreeing to read review this one when contacted by the publishing company was a no brainer 2 Reasons you liked or disliked this bookI absolutely loved this story This genre, which I call my gentle reads instead of inspirational fiction just keeps getting better as the authors understand that the way to a reader s heart is not to pummel them with biblic [...]

  21. Emma thought she had found true love when she married Rory Malloy Emma was sadly mistaken Rory was both physically and verbally abusive to Emma Emma has a disfigurement on the side of her face from the result of one of Rory s many violent moments Luckily for Emma, Rory took an interest in someone else and left Emma Charity is Emma s friend She knows that Emma needs help in the shop, so she tells her that she has someone in mind, her brother, Sean As much as Emma needs help, she is unsure about S [...]

  22. The Winds of Change series is the continuation of the Daughters of Boston series It is highly recommended that readers begin with A Passion Most Pure My review can be read here Finally we find out what the eldest O Connor brother has been up to Up until now, we ve only caught glimpses of Sean s life through his sisters eyes, and all we know is that he s a self proclaimed bachelor Well, that s all about to change Enter Emma Malloy, Sean s sister Charity s best friend She s spent the last thirteen [...]

  23. Oh I loved this book so much I absolutely loved Emma s story and didn t find any part of it predictable I always loved her character and my heart felt complete when she finally married Sean Like the rest of Julie s books, this one also held many biblical lessons The fact that Emma had suffered the way she did would cause any normal human being to turn from God and hold Him accountable But what I loved so much about this story is the strength Emma had A single quote from this book made me cry at [...]

  24. Julie Lessman has been hit hard by people who think she is too edgy I disagree because her books are realistic and never cross the line Emma is a sweet and lovely heroine Sean could be exasperating at times but I found it interesting that he never really contemplated infidelity even though he was not a Christian It shows that he respected Emma and had a morality that even for that time might have wavered This book is one of the most morally upholding books I have read in awhile It is also intere [...]

  25. I have found that the tag Line Passion with a Purpose does not touch the surface of the Love, Dedication and sincere realism, that takes her books beyond the shelf, but into the lives of her readers Not just for a day, but her work hit a special place in your heart and will stay long after you place the book on the shelf only to be read again I give Julie Lessman and her works in Christian Literature a 5 Star rating Her books will make you beg for another.

  26. I had to buy myself a copy of this one on Kindle, because I wanted to read it so badly and only by the light of an electronic reader would suffice in the nursery See the Kindle copy, for my review.

  27. This review is from my blog and originally published in 2011 Okay Let me take just one moment to reflect on this book Reflecting Okay That s better WOW I don t even know where to begin There is so much to say about this novel Let me start off by saying if you ve never read a Julie Lessman novel, stop what you are doing right now, and grab a copy You won t be sorry The first novel I read by her was last September, entitled A Hope Undaunted, book 1 in this Winds Of Change series I couldn t believe [...]

  28. A refreshing story about the love of God and the love of two people struggling with their pasts.I thought this was a good story, and the bits of prayer and calling on scripture were just enough to not make it feel like a bible lesson Lessman did a good job of evoking the human part of this story.Set during the Great Depression era, Emma Malloy, a battered wife from Dublin, is living in Boston being loved by the family of the O Connor s She has lived there for 11 years and has a best friend in Se [...]

  29. I couldn t put this novel down It really gets to your in so many ways spiritually, emotionally, physically Be prepared Lessman delivers and she means it with every word I loved it so much I was so sad to have it be finished I devoured this book with all my being, and had me hanging on every chapter to find out what happened next You are with Emma and Sean, but then you are stuck on Charity and Mitch and Katie and Luke, and boom, you have a story that is so real you almost feel like you lived it [...]
