hard for Steven O'Connor, the man who broke an engagement to her sister,
Annie is worried. Will he break her heart too when he discovers who she
OK, last Julie Lessman book review until Love at Any Cost comes out in a few months.. hehehe. :-D
I don't know if it was the shortness of this last installment of the Winds of Change series or if it was the wonderful Annie Kennedy, but I extremely liked this one! Kind of like A Heart Revealed, we get a new look on the O'Connor family and a bit more of what was going on outside the O'Connor's kitchen.
Aside from Faith, I believe Annie is my second favorite heroine in the whole series. Her ideals reminded me of Faith, her stubbornness reminded me of Charity, and she kind of reminded me of, well, me. Haha! She really did phenomenal in staying strong in her purity and her faith. I also loved her relationship with Glory-- that was too cute. :-)
In A Hope Undaunted, we saw Steven change his life for the better. In A Love Surrendered, it really shows how he's changed and how he struggles to trust himself. Since we saw so little of him in previous books I liked finally having a chance to read his story, get to know him a little better, and most of all see him patch his relationship with God.
In sum, this one kept me reading until the very end. I will miss the O'Connors SO much, but I know they were happy. :-)
I won this book in a giveaway, no review required.
