REVIEW FOR JULIE LESSMAN'S NEW CHRISTMAS NOVEL
A Light in the Window is one of those stories that you can’t wait to finish but you don’t want to end! Julie Lessman makes you want to know what happens next in the lives and love of her characters so you have to keep reading, but her characters are so real you fall in love with them yourself, and when the story ends you’re sad that it has. Julie is one of the few people I know that has a magical way of making you feel like you’re in the story and her characters are old friends. I finished the book and was so disappointed that I wouldn’t see Patrick and Marceline again! And then I remembered I read A Passion Most Pure when it first came out with Patrick and Marceline grown up with a family of their own. Now I’m going to go back and reread it just to get some more of these characters and Julie’s awesome writing. I truly believe we will see Julie’s books on the New York Times best seller list. They are that good.
I don’t usually do a summary of the book because that’s what so many people do, but to give you a hint of the tension in the story, Marceline has loved Sam O’Rourke, her best friend’s brother since she was a little girl. She’s always wanted to be a part of what she sees as their perfect family. When she returns after having moved away, she’s all grown up and Sam is now the city rogue along with his best friend Patrick O’Connor. The men spot the new beauty at different times, but both make her their next mission and lay claim to her.
Questions arise. Can love change a man? Can a long time friendship survive the competition of Marceline’s attention? And most of all how will Marceline see through prejudices and childhood dreams to find the man that God has chosen for her? If you like great conflict, real characters you fall in love with, vivid settings, and smoldering scenes between the hero and heroine, you are going to love this story.
