Publisher's Description

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.

Endorsements

It’s the summer of 1929, and Katie O’Connor knows exactly what she wants: marriage to rich, rakish, albeit spoiled Jack Worthington, and a law career. When Jack and others in her circle of self-centered, privileged friends deliberately humiliate a soda jerk, Katie is embarrassed. Then she breaks curfew too many times, and her father sentences her to work as a summer volunteer at the Boston Children’s Aid Society. Raised on the wrong side of the tracks, Luke McGee has worked his way through law school, and even though he’s now an attorney, he fills in at the soda counter for a friend, only to become the brunt of Jack and the gang’s cruelty. When Luke becomes assistant director of the Boston Children’s Aid Society, his life becomes intertwined with Katie’s, perhaps forever. A rich girl and a poor boy find that love can be the great equalizer in Lessman’s engrossing tale, which has more awareness and sizzle between the hero and heroine than your average inspirational romance. This is the first book in the Winds of Change series. — Shelley Mosley, Booklist

Publisher's Weekly

Inspirational romance author Lessman (Daughters of Boston series) opens a new historical fiction series, Winds of Change. In this first book, Lessman's female protagonist, Katie O'Connor, is a smart, sassy young woman full of dreams for a successful career in law. Barriers to Katie's goals are the time period in which she was born (the 1920s) and societal mores that locate women securely in the home. Katie's headstrong nature often does her more harm than good, and her heart pulls her away from a wealthy suitor to childhood acquaintance Luke McGee. With lots of family dynamics and competing story lines, Katie's journey to true fulfillment in both love and faith loses impact. Lessman's writing skill is noteworthy, but the tale would have been more successful if it was more succinct. (Sept.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    Although this was for the most part a good story I felt that this crossed over the line as a Christian novel. I was disappointed in the lack of Christian morals and the way the characters jumped so quickly from one person's arms to another. I must add though that the author does bring the gospel in in a wonderful way but still I would not in good conscience be able to recommend this book to others.

    I have read several books by this author, and she doesn't disappoint. Hope Undaunted was a cute and fun story, and you love the characters the more you read it. I found myself saying I will just read one chapter tonight and it was 3AM before I stopped!! It pulls you in and you can't stop reading. I highly recommend this book and any of Julie Lessman's other books also.

    I absolutely loved this story from begining to end! The book had so many twists and turns ...when I thought I had it figured out, something threw me every time! The author really pulled me in. I enjoyed the surrounding stories of other members of the O'Connor family. I just found out that Winds of Change series is a continuing series of the Daughters of Boston...i have to read those to find out about the older daughters. I really enjoyed this book and will be reading the rest of the series!
