Collin McGuire is passionate about the beautiful Charity O’Connor.
Faith O’Connor is passionate about the Lord- and Collin.
Set in 1916 a midst WWI, two sisters Charity and Faith are in rivalry over one handsome rogue. Collin is in love with Charity but there is something about Faith that stirs his blood. With her auburn hair and sparkling green eyes, he learns fairly quick that her passions is directed towards God.
The faithful, soulful bookworm versus the blue-eyed beauty.
The reason this book is so hard to put down, is that Julie Lessman creates real characters with real flaws. Although Faith is faithful to her God, she cannot deny her desires for Collin. These feelings grow stronger everyday. To a certain point, she can be considered a prude to the tenth degree. What makes it worse is her sister Charity uses her stunning beauty to tempt Collin and any other man around.
*Charity is manipulative, vindictive, and shallow. She is perhaps one of the worse characters in Christian Fiction. The way she treats her sister is downright despicable. The fact that the next book in the series is about Charity is enough to give goosebumps. Will her heart ever be changed?
A Passion most pure.
A Passion Most Pure has a far reaching message: Hold dear to the Lord. He will never leave you nor forsake you in your darkest hour because you see…He is passionate about us.
“Genuine love is just another name for doing it God’s way- a relationship between two people brought together by him and devoted to him. You knew that all along, Faith.”(A Passion Most Pure, pg.372).
How can you love someone else if you have not loved God?
This is a lengthy book filled with love, sorrow, triumph and so much passion. Who said Christian books had to be dry and safe? This one kept me up late and had me wondering will Faith and Collin ever realize they are meant to be or will their time be stolen?
A powerful book, highly recommended.
