A Hope Undaunted by Julie Lessman

A Hope Undaunted (Winds of Change, #1)

(From Back Cover)

What happens when the boy she loved to hate becomes the man she hates to love?

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 eating out of her hand. But when she is forced to spend the summer of 1929 with Luke 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?

My Thoughts:

Katie O'Connor is a spunky young woman with high standards for herself and the man she will marry. But when she breaks her father's curfew with Jack one too many times she finds herself punished for the summer. Her punishment is to work as a summer volunteer at the Boston Children's Aid Society, which she finds makes her childhood nemesis Luke McGee her boss.

I LOVED reading "A Hope Undaunted" and I eagerly await the next book in the series, "A Heart Revealed", which will be about Sean O'Connor, Katie's oldest brother and a confirmed bachelor.

"A Hope Undaunted" is the first book in the "Winds of Change" Series, which is the second series about the O'Connor Family. The first series is the "Daughters Of Boston", which is about Katie's three older sisters (Faith, Charity & Elizabeth) and their journeys to find love. I highly recommend both of these series, and I would love to know your thoughts on these books when you read them. So feel free to leave a comment!
