A Passion Denied by Julie Lessman
Revell - Historical Fiction/Romantic/Christian
Holly wrote a wonderful review of A Passion Denied that I hope you'll read if you're interested in historical fiction.
I'm setting this one aside for a couple of reasons. I realized after reading Holly's review that it wasn't so much the premise, which I considered a bit weak, putting me off so much as the fact that I'm unfamiliar with the characters and maybe feeling a bit out of place, as this is the third in a series. Sometimes it works to pick up a book out of sequence and sometimes it doesn't. This one threw me and, after a bit of consideration, I think I simply need to start at the beginning of the series and work my way forward.
I like the author's writing style and highly encourage you to read Holly's review, as well as the sneak peek chapter, below.
