A Hope Undaunted Blog Tour

The 1920s are drawing to a close, and feisty Katie O'Connor is the epitome of the new woman--smart and sassy with goals for her future that include the perfect husband and a challenging career in law. Her boyfriend Jack fits all of her criteria for a husband--good-looking, well-connected, wealthy, and head-over-heels in love with her. But when she is forced to spend the summer of 1929 with Cluny McGee, the bane of her childhood existence, Katie comes face to face with a choice. Will she follow her well-laid plans to marry Jack? Or will she fall for the man she swore to despise forever? A Hope Undaunted is the engrossing first book in the WINDS OF CHANGE series from popular author Julie Lessman. Readers will thrill at the highly charged romance in this passionate story.

“Available September 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”


As a fan of Julie Lessman, I look forward to the continuing saga of the O’Connor family. She never disappoints as she spins the next tale. Katie is the baby girl of the family and probably the most headstrong. She doesn’t like her father running her life and wants her freedom to do as she pleases.

One night she misses curfew and her father decides her punishment will be a summer without her sweetheart, Jack and her volunteering at the local orphanage, a decision that would change her life forever.

Katie is not thrilled at the idea of volunteering or working for her worse enemy, child hood friend, Luke McGee. The man she loves to hate. Their child hood rivalry has grown into an attraction that Katie refuses to acknowledge.

I enjoy Ms. Lessman’s style of writing. She introduces history into the story without overwhelming you. It was fun learning about the roaring twenties and different historical figures during this time. Katie keeps you on your toes as you read about her different antics. Will she choose the man who fits all her criterias or will she choose the man who flips her heart?
