    This review was written for Passion Denied, A - eBook.
    Julie Lessman is a good author and this was a great story. The O'Connor family definitely faces much drama throughout this series but it makes for interesting reading. The focus in this book was on living to please God and seeking his will though the reality is that we often run ahead of God and take matters in our own hands as the characters in this book did. This was also a story of pain and forgiveness. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that i don't think it's necessary to go into such detail in moments of passion. Otherwise a very good book!

    We have seen Elizabeth grow up to be Lizzie now and are reading her own personal love story. I really like the strong female characters in Julie Lessman's books, but I am also drawn to the equally strong male characters in her books. The love stories between characters are so passionately and tastefully written, it is so hard to put each book down. The reader can't wait to see what happens next in the story line. I have to say that I am drawn to Julie's books once again because of her passion for love and romance but especially the passionate way she writes about God. I have read these books from start to finish at least 3 times and have purchased them all. I highly recommend these great stories but do read them in order.

    Another Wonderful Read

    I absolutely loved this series! I enjoyed this book as much as the other two in the trilogy. I am so happy to have found Julie Lessman's books. The O'Connors seem so real I hated to see this book end. Then I found out that there is a prequel to this series so I bought it to read on my tablet. I hope everyone enjoys these books as much as I have. But if not, I have enjoyed them enough for everyone. I've stayed up late to finish these wonderful books.

    After reading A Passion Most Pure and A Passion Redeemed I was very excited to read this book! I loved Brady, from Collin and Faith's book, and Beth (who now goes by Lizzie) was so sweet. It's fun to see her all grown up and learning what it means to be an adult.

    Lizzie has loved Brady almost since she met him. For her teen years he was her spiritual mentor, someone she looked up to, and idolized. He was her "ideal" man and she fancied herself in love with him, especially after reading Jane Austen's books about "true love." The question is: what are you supposed to do when the man you love, won't love you back? But Lizzie doesn't let this hold her back, instead she does her best to change his mind.

    Brady is determined to remain a bachelor all his life and refuses to even consider a relationship with anyone, much less his "little sister" as he still sees Lizzie. He even still calls her "Beth," which drives her crazy. He tries to continue mentoring her, but finds his affections changing and can't allow that.

    I loved having Collin, Faith, Charity and Mitch back, continuing their stories, even as we read Lizzie's. Collin's point of view adds depth and understanding to Brady. We see him through the eyes of his best friend. I also love the new character added, Cluny. He was so cute!

    My only complaint is that it sometimes seemed a little repetitious at times. Brady and Lizzie seemed to have the same argument every couple chapters for the first little while. Then they would move on, but would occasionally revisit that disagreement, again.

    Watching Brady overcome his fear and guilt, may have been my favorite part. I was rooting for him all the way and kept wanting to slap him when he would backslide or push Lizzie away. He, like Charity and Mitch, had to learn what it means to be redeemed by God. Brady continued to punish himself, even though God had forgiven him. I wanted to jump and yell "yes!" when he finally got it! You know it's a great book when the characters can bring out such strong emotions in you!

    I also really enjoyed watching Lizzie grow and come to understand what true love is. It's loving someone no matter what. Her love for Brady had boundaries and when he disappointed her, she had to accept that he would hurt her sometimes. It wouldn't be intentional, but he's human. She had forgotten that God loves us endlessly and His forgiveness is infinite. He requires the same of us, that we love with His love and always forgive.

    The ending was great! I love how Julie brought it all together in the end!

    While this is the last book in the Daughters of Boston series, it is not the last of the O'Connors! If you loved these books, then you will also love Julie's Winds of Change series, where we pick up the O'Connors story again.

    "A Passion Denied" is the story of Elizabeth O'Connor, and her quest for the love of John Brady, whose secrets from a painful past threaten to destroy a friendship, keep him from loving her - and kept this reader on the edge of her seat!!

    "A Passion Denied" - set in 1922 Boston - is third in the Daughters of Boston trilogy, by award-winning author Julie Lessman, and is followed by the Winds of Change trilogy - each book, a story of a member of the O'Connor family.

    Julie Lessman pulls "all her guns" out in this story of romance, family, true love, betrayal, guilt, deceit, forgiveness, and redemption. She is a master at unexpected story "twists-and-turns", description, realistic characters with whom you hate to part, passion and angst, emotion that has you laughing one minute and crying the next, and happy endings.

    A love for God and following His will for one's life is a central theme in Julie's books. Each book I read becomes my "new" favorite, and leaves me with sadness that the book has ended, joyful anticipation for the next one, and a spiritual warmth.
