If there were ever an author I absolutely adored, it would be Julie Lessman. She has created an entire cast of characters whom I’ve come to love and feel as tho they’re family!
My first introduction to Julie’s newest release was when she shared a snippet from Chapter 17 in her newsletter. Oh my word. With just a couple of pages read I knew that I was ready to read Emma and Sean’s story!
Reading A Heart Revealed was a pull on my emotions. One minute my heart is being wrenched for what they’re going through, the next I’m laughing at their interactions.
Julie takes on quite the tough topic of abuse. Emma has experience the abuse from a man she believed she loved. Throughout this story we see the ramifications of what that has done to her: emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
Not only are we sharing Emma’s life in this story, Julie manages to keep us entwined in the lives of Charity, Faith and Katie. And of course along with the ladies come their husbands who always seem to be playing keep up with their wives in this book!
There’s a twist towards the end of the book that really grabbed my attention and it will grab yours as well. Julie doesn’t mince words and when she tackles a topic, she does so straightforward, but with tactful fashion.
If you have ever wanted to love characters and be drawn into the story of their lives, you will get a heaping dose full with A Heart Revealed.
