Book Blurb:

One Woman. Two Men.
One stirs her pulse and the other her faith.
But who will win her heart?

Marceline Murphy is a gentle beauty with a well-founded aversion to rogues. But when two of Boston's most notorious pursue her, she encounters a tug-of-war of the heart she isn’t expecting.

My Thoughts:
Finally, the prequel to Julie's Daughter of Boston's series and Wind of Change series that I have been waiting for; and I wasn't disappointed!
Marcy is eighteen and has returned to Boston after five years of being away in New York. Her best-friend Julie(Jewels) has volunteered them to direct and organize the Christmas play that will fund raise the parish soup kitchen.
Julie's older brother Sam, and his best friend Patrick are the local rogues in town. Marcy has no desire to have any thing to do with either one of them. Patrick is quite taken with Marcy and will do just about anything, even turning to God to win her heart.
The girls don't know that the boys were caught drinking the sacramental wine in the confessional and were caught by Father Fritz, and he punished them to help with the play, by building sets and whatever else was needed.
With Julie's pen she brings us the beginning of the O'Connor family. As I read this story I was able to see each of the children in Marcy and Patrick. I fell more in love with this family than I did with the book A Passion Most Pure.
The main thread that Julie has in her books is still there, while our passions whatever they may be, have to come under the control of our Heavenly Father, so that we can do for Him what He has desired for us.


Highly recommended!
