A Heart Revealed


This book is now in my top ten!!!

Book Rating: Best of the Best

I was not at all prepared to be so totally consumed, and truly LOVE this book as much as I do. (Somewhere in the dark recesses of my mind I hear a second grader sneering, “If you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?” Very funny, Joey. Very funny.)

There are many reasons why I will certainly be re-reading this book, but one major reason stands out above the rest. And her name is Emma Malloy.

Emma is SO wonderful and I could not love her more. She is by far my very favorite heroine out of all of Lessman’s books. Her strength, faith and unending devotion are traits I would love to emulate. She has quite a haunting past, (so does Sean...) but she holds herself with grace despite it all. Oh! And the way her relationship with Sean develops is absolutely, heart-meltingly delectable!

Now, speaking of Sean…to me, he is just as amazing, and ranks up there with Luke. I may be a bit prejudice, because his personality is very much like my husband's, so I couldn’t help but like him, right?!  *teehee * Sean is a very manly man—I just swoon at how he loves Emma! Ah! Holy cow. I think I’m gonna re-read this again starting tonight.

I have to say something really quickly about Luke since I mentioned him earlier... You better have your smelling salts on-hand because, believe it or not, he just gets more scrumptious and you will likely faint from his all-consuming deliciousness. (You didn’t think it was even possible for him to be more yummy, did you? Oh, it’s possible!)

The other inter-twining stories are also just as wonderful. I mean, all of it. Totally fabulous. Need I say more?! I don’t think so. If you haven’t read it, please do yourself a favor, will ya? Buy it, borrow it, whatever you please, but Marvin K. Mooney will you please read it now?! *teehee *

Happy Reading!
Buy it!


  1. HOLY COW, AMBER, PINCH ME!!! I Made your "TOP TEN"??? I am BEYOND blown away, truly!! And you are in sound agreement with my hubby, who LOVES Emma and said she was his favorite of my heroines and this was his favorite O'Connor book ... that is until he read A Light in the Window, of course, which bumped it. :)

    Anyway, you pretty much made my day, my night and probably my week with this review, you sweet thing, and I cannot thank you enough!! Be sure to let me know everywhere you post this so I can give you the points in my review contest, okay?

    Hugs and more hugs and HAPPY WEEKEND!!

  2. This is HORRIBLE! I can't remember anything about this book! I love all of them but it really bothers me I can't remember much about this one. I guess I'll have to go back and read it again. :) Another amazing always!
