Full of passion, romance, rivalry, and betrayal, A Passion Most Pure will captivate readers from the first page. Book 1 of the Daughters of Boston series.
As the title implies, a major theme of the book is how to handle sexual desires in a godly way. While I think Lessman could have toned down the frequency of this subject and still covered it effectively, I also feel that her conclusions were accurate. She tried to drive home the idea that we should give all our desires to God and strive for purity, both physical and emotional, and that substituting cheap, physical love for a deep, genuine, God-centered love will never satisfy, and is harmful.
The characters in the story are pretty realistic. I could easily visualize Charity jealously attacking Faith, both verbally and by flirting with Faiths beau. I totally empathized when Faith tried so hard to bite her tongue and failed. Also, I loved Mrs. Gerson, the blind, elderly neighbor, who is a spiritual mentor for Faith. She gives such a great example of how Christians should live, regardless of circumstances. Finally, Maisie, Faiths coworker, does a good job of bringing humor to the story.
Overall, I would say that A Passion Most Pure is a good book. It kept my interest the whole time, and I enjoyed reading about a heroine that was so focused on prayer and pleasing God. Im looking forward to book two. Melissa Hellen, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
