Book Review - "A Heart Revealed"

Julie Lessman's second book in her Winds of Change series is here! "A Heart Revealed" tells the story of Emma Malloy who is trying to recover from emotional and physical wounds in Boston. Emma left Dublin to escape the abuse she was receiving from her husband; however the trauma and effects of the abuse was not left in Dublin as she tries to begin a new life. Spending time with her best friend Charity and Charity's family that keeps on growing, Emma finds herself healing and reading to move on. Charity's brother Sean catches Emma's attention and soon her heart as well. However, Emma's past and the emotional baggage that is still so ever present keeps on getting in the way.

This novel is set in 1931 yet the couples are dealing with the same struggles and issues that couples deal with today - balancing work and family, trust in a marriage, money, true love. This is a great novel that will pull you into the lives of the O'Connor siblings as you go through everyday life with them and watch the romance between Emma and Sean unfold!

“Available September 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”

  1. Hey, Kristie, thank you SO much for the great review -- MUCH appreciated!!

    I don't know if you are prone to posting your reviews anywhere else, but if you are, you might be interested in a newsletter contest I am running where anyone who posts a review on their blog,,, Goodreads, B&N or anywhere else, gets a point for every review posted. It only has to be a line or two saying you liked the book if you can honestly say that, then even just one review posted enters you into a drawing for a signed copy of Steven's story, A Trust Restored when it comes out next year.

    The persons who come in first and second in posting the most reviews will get a character named after them in Steven's story and the top winner will also get a $50 gift card. So if that sounds like something you'd be interested in, just sign up for my newsletter on my website and post a review or more, then let me know by forwarding me the links. BUT ... if posting reviews is NOT your thing, PLEASE do not worry about it, okay? This is only for those people so inclined.

    Thanks again for not only taking time to read my books, but for posting such a great review.
