I don't tend to pick long books, and Julie Lessman's A Passion Most Pure definitely qualifies as long to me at 480 pages. But occasionally a story will so fill my mind that the length doesn't matter. It also helped that I bought this as an eBook, so I didn't know how long it was until I realized how slowly I was making progress through it.
A great plan for the future that seems to be right on track, but then the unthinkable happens. What do you have when what you most want is taken away? Much like life, Julie Lessman addresses this question repeatedly throughout A Hope Undaunted as God presses forward with His plan in the character's lives.
What is your opinion of God? High, exalted and to be feared? Existent but uninvolved and unconcerned with your life? A bully who has to have things His way?
