Isle Of Hope
Unfailing Love book 1
by Julie Lessman
She stole his heart. He stole her peace. Can hope steal their pain? At the age of eighteen, Lacey Carmichael was a wild girl bent on fun, promised to Jack O'Bryen, a straight-and-narrow pastor’s kid bent on the seminary. When her father kicks her out of the house, she runs away from Isle of Hope, turning her back on everything she loves. Now, eight years later, she’s back as a woman of faith, hoping to make amends to the father she defied, the boyfriend she deserted, and the best friend she denied. Only the bridges she’s burned are still smoldering, kindled by an adulterous affair by Jack’s pastor father that damaged his son’s faith. But can a turning of tables—and hearts—lead the way back to “hope” for them all?
Romance by the sea...
What an emotional roller coaster ride! Isle Of Hope caused all kinds of disruptions in my day, not only did I have a hard time putting it down but while I was making my breakfast I got to thinking so hard about the story that I walked out of the kitchen and forgot my Kindle, AND this is one of the only two or three books that have ever caused me to tear up.
Julie Lessman has done something quite different from the norm, there was no hero or heroine in this book, no, there were just real and very flawed people. The issues they all face are the same kind of things we face in our own lives. Isle Of Hope is story of love, loss, and most importantly forgiveness. Every facet of forgiveness. It isn't just a theme but is key to the entire story. No need to worry, Julie Lessman has a definite storyline and lots of her trademark romance.
