Back cover copy

Her heart is tied to a youthful vow . . . but can true love set it free? Ten years ago, Emma Malloy fled Dublin for Boston, running for her life. Her emotional wounds have finally faded, and her life is now full of purpose and free from the pain of her past. But when she falls for her friend Charity's handsome and charming brother, Sean O'Connor, fear and shame threaten to destroy her. Could Sean and Emma ever have a future together? Or is Emma doomed to live out the rest of her life denying the only true love she's ever known? Filled with intense passion and longing, deception and revelation, "A Heart Revealed" will hold you in its grip until the very last page. "In a powerful and skillfully written novel, Lessman exposes raw human emotions, proving once again that it's through our greatest pain that God can lead us to our true heart, revealed and restored. Thoroughly enthralling!"--Maggie Brendan, author of the Heart of the West series "Julie Lessman brings all her passion for romance rooted in her passion for God to "A Heart Revealed." Emma Malloy is her finest heroine yet. These characters, with their own personal struggles and the ignited flame of an impossible love, fill the pages of this powerful, passionate, fast-paced romance."--Mary Connealy, author of the Lassoed in Texas and the Montana Marriages series "What an interesting mix of characters. Rather than a single boy-meets-girl romance, Julie Lessman's latest novel takes readers on an emotional roller coaster with several couples--some married, some yearning to be married--as they seek to embrace love, honor the Lord, and uncover a dark truth that's been hidden for a decade. Readers who long for passion in their love stories will find it in abundance here!"--Liz Curtis Higgs, bestselling author of "Thorn in My Heart" Julie Lessman is the popular author of "A Passion Most Pure," "A Passion Redeemed," and "A Passion Denied," as well as "A Hope Undaunted," which was one of 2010's Booklist Top Ten Inspirational Fiction winners.

Since the first time I read about Emma Malloy, I have wanted to see her with a happy ending and I am glad to say it has finally come! The story didn't end the way I expected, but it was exceptional! I loved how the story included sub-stories with Charity & her husband and newlyweds Katie & her husband - since Charity is my favorite character this made it extra special. I always wanted Emma and Sean to get together, ever since their first meeting I felt a spark between them, but because the ring on her hand belongs to another man that was never a possibility. The trials Emma has gone through are heart-breaking and I learned in this book that Sean has gone through many of his own too. I knew of Emma's abusive husband before I read this book, but this story goes into much more of the details of that abuse - nothing too graphic, but you see how crazed with unfounded jealousy he was. 'A Heart Revealed' is Julie's best work to date - though my personal favorite is still 'A Passion Redeemed'. Julie just keeps getting better and better as an author and I can't wait to read her next book - which sadly is going to be the last book in this series. I highly recommend this book, but since all her books to date are about the same family, be sure that you read all three books in the 'Daughters of Boston' series and then book one in the 'Winds of Change' series first - so you won't spoil any of it for yourself.show more

Okay. Let me take just one moment to reflect on this book. *Reflecting* Okay. That's better. WOW. I don't even know where to begin. There is so much to say about this novel. Let me start off by saying if you've never read a Julie Lessman novel, stop what you are doing right now, and grab a copy. You won't be sorry. The first novel I read by her was last September, entitled A Hope Undaunted, book 1 in this Winds Of Change series. I couldn't believe how much I fell in love with her work! I was then lucky enough to win all three novels in her first series, The Daughters of Boston. Though they are still sitting on my shelf to be read, they are definitely calling my name and I can't wait to go back and read them. Now, on to the rest. In the first book in this series, I fell in love with Luke McGee. In this novel, I think I love Sean O'Connor even more. I really enjoy Snickers bars, so see, Julie? You could send SEAN my way, and I'd be forever blissfully happy. I LOVED his character. He was great in his role in A Hope Undaunted , but reading his story with the focus on him, was absolutely amazing. His past wasn't perfect, and there were times when he went wild with anger, but he overcame that. There was one thing from his past that he holds inside though. No one, not even his nosy sisters, know. That is until, he finds himself drawn to his best friend Emma in a way that he couldn't imagine. He opens up to her....with everything. Emma Malloy. Bless her soul. She was a wonderful character, flawed and sweet, and wanting everyone close to her to be happy. Including Sean. When she finds her self falling in love with him, when she's still married to the man who beat her 11 years ago, she's determined to push him off on Rose Kelly...the woman who loves him. Trouble is, something happened to Sean and he won't try with Rose. Oh, I so want to go on and on....but I'm SO close to giving away the plot! I DO NOT want to do that! I want you to devour the book like I did and take the time to reflect on the wonderfulness of this novel. It's stunning. It's breath taking. It's a roller coaster of emotions, from happiness, to sadness, to anger, to pride, to passion. It has a WHOPPER of a twist and an ending that will leave you smiling and tears running down your face. Not to mention I LOVED Casey Herringshaw and Michelle Tuller's characters ;-) *grins*! I highly suggest that you grab a copy of this novel NOW. It's 5 Books worthy, two thumbs up, hats off, a home run, a winner, a best seller......what ever you want to call it's that. Julie Lessman really has a way to make ME feel a part of the heart of the story. She speaks to me through the words of her characters, and really brings me closer to God each time. She is by far my absolute FAVORITE Christian novelist and I will NEVER part with her books. They are forever on myself for me to read and reread, and reflect on each time. I am looking forward to book three in this series, Steven O'Connor's story. Sweet angels in Heaven, though, Julie, do you have to make us wait a whole YEAR!?!? *Sigh* Oh well. All the more for me to savor that one upon it's release.show more
