Description:Graced with physical beauty, though shallow of heart, Charity O'Connor is a woman who knows what she wants. She sets her sights on the cantankerous Mitch Dennehy, editor at the Irish Times, who has unwittingly stolen her heart. And although the sparks are there, Mitch refuses to fan the coals of a potential relationship with his ex-fiancee's sister. But Charity has a plan to turn up the heat and she always gets what she wants--one way or another. Is revenge so sweet after all? Or will Charity get burned?
This second book in the Daughters of Boston series was not a disappointment! It was great! I really felt for the characters in this book.
Mitch. I am so proud of him! He really changed his life around for the better when he met Faith in A Passion Most Pure. I love how he wouldn't settle for anything less in a relationship than both him and his wife being followers of Christ. I felt so bad for him when I read this book. Knowing he couldn't have his hearts desire because she did not have a relationship with God. It broke my heart! How much it devastated him mad me want to cry.
Charity. She's starting to grow on me. Reading this book I got to see her point of view on things and see how she treated other people than her family. She really does have a kind heart even though her relationship with her family needed a lot of work. You get to see her kindness by the way she treats her friend Emma. I loved how the book dug down deep into Charity's personal issues, showing me why she was the way she was. Then to see her transformation was incredible, even though she still has a long way to go.
This book really showed me the devastation of heart break. It showed me not to settle for anything less than what I know God has planned for me. That if i'm patient and obedient he will reward me with the desire of my heart.
It also did a really good job at showing the consequences of a persons sins. The book used this verse a few times: For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord- Romans 6:22-23. Charity did many things that were not honorable, and after she did them it would say she felt dead inside. I don't think the verse means litteral death, but that you will feel used, unholy, like nothings important anymore, like no one cares..etc. That's when we realize that not commiting sin will give us the knowledge of Gods love, the gift of eternal life, and our riches in heaven. What's better than that?
I hope this review helps you decide whether or not to read A Passion Redeemed.:) I pray that if you read it you will get what I got out of it or possibly even more!
