A Love Surrendered by Julie Lessman- Memorable
Secrets lie unbidden in wait longing for exposure.
Peggy is one with the world and looking for new recruits, from where she is watching there is more fun to be found.
Annie looking for a life in Boston that she was not afforded in Iowa, finds herself wanting to viewed as more mature.
Steven holds the memories of a past love deep within his heart. He strives to protect the young, but can he protect Annie from the snares that threaten to destoy her completely?
Romance, secrets, humor and passion will take the reader on a journey to a time in the past and will thrill with twists, turns and surprises. This book is complete with believable and easy to relate to characters like they are friends who experience some of what we may, interactive easy to follow dialogue and progressive plot that kept surprising me. A faith filled read laced with raw passion in some parts will satisfy even the most descriminate of readers especially those who also enjoy secular novels. Although part of a series this book can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel. Extremely hard to put down I was entertained by this well written read and will recommend it to others.
