Please don't enter me, I already have this entire series! But I totally get where you're coming from, I probably would have a hard time getting rid of these books too if I had multiple copies LOL! I wouldn't want to give them up! Hey you could always keep a copy in your purse so you always have it!!!

XOXO~ Renee

I'm actually reading A Passion Most Pure at the moment. Just started it the other day actually. After having read your review of A Passion Most Pure if I wasn't reading it I think I would be going over to Amazon to buy it right now! :) Saying it's one of the best books you have ever read is certainly high praise and makes me want to go grab my book and curl up and read all day (but I can't--have to work :p)

I had seen these books on tons of blogs so I got one from my library which just happened to be A Passion Denied. I thought it was a great book too. So I read your reviews for A Passion Most Pure and A Passion Redeemed. I think that between the two I would want to read A Passion Most Pure because I think I would like it better. A lot of times girls like Charity will leave me stewing, and some of the things she recommended in A Passion Denied I didn't agree with either. Also your experience that you shared in the A Passion Most Pure review reminds me of a thing I read in A Perfect Mess by Lisa Harper about how sometimes it's not good to be with someone whose motives aren't good because it's easier for them to bring you down than it is for you to bring them up. It's a tough lesson to learn and I had a friend that was similar except I pretty much just gave up before I could be terribly hurt. I hope your former friend is doing well now though. And I hope you are too. Blessings,

When you said that A Passion Denied was for "the young woman who is learning in her faith daily and not afraid to see what God will show her in the power of words", I knew I really wanted to keep reading this series.

I would want either A Passion Denied or A Passion Redeemed, since I've already read "A Passion Most Pure." If I had to narrow it down to one, I'd have to say "A Passion Denied."

Thanks for the giveaway!

Oooo! I want both the second and third...lol, but I'll take the second since i've only read the first one. After reading your review, I'm glad to know I wasn't the only one who struggled with liking Charity. It also intrigued me that you didn't guess the ending. I know the background on her story, so I can just imagine what happens with her.

I like the way the characters seem to grow and develop through the books. It sounds like it would really be best to read them in the right order, but they do all sound really interesting. Seems like she creates very believably flawed characters, people I'd enjoy reading about.

Hello! Your strong emotional response to the characters in this series really has me intrigued. You were definitely not shy when expressing your dislike of certain characters and the unhappines they caused for the other characters.

You mentioned that A Passion Most Pure is by far one of your favourite books, and that author Julie Lessman has done a great job. I've never read any of these books, so either one would be fine for me!

I love this series and need to replace my copies because my daughter "stole" them!

I love that you compared it to Liz Curtis Higgs' series because I have that series on my TBR pile and can tell I need to get to it soon!

This is why I would love to win one of Julie's books:

"This book is full of lessons and full of scriptures of life that are so relevant and will be a blessing to any reader."

I love books with lessons from Scripture that are relevant. It's the main reason I read Christian ficion.

I would love to read A Passion Most Pure because you said you liked it even more than Redeeming Love, which is one of my personal favorites.

I've not read any of the books on the reviews but I would prefer a Pass Redeemed if given the choice.
