Orphaned in Iowa, Annie Kennedy has moved to Boston and is embracing the city life, with a new name and a wide-open future. When she gets involved with a fast crowd at Ocean Pier - one that includes the handsome Steven O’Connor - she is pulled deeper and deeper into a world of rule breakers and mischief makers. She finds herself drawn to Steven and the whole O’Connor family. But a secret Annie is keeping has the power to destroy her best-laid plans.
Will Steven ever see her as more than a sweet country girl who needs protecting? And will he break her heart when he finds out who she really is?
With heart-pounding romance, intense family drama, and the emotional twists and turns Julie Lessman fans have come to expect, A Love Surrendered will ignite your senses and inspire your spirit.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
This book may work for young listeners, but I found it too cliched and a bit juvenile.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I am not sure if my inability to engage with book was the narrator, the storyline, or the storyline and the narrator. Most of time, the telling seemed over exaggerated and overly cliched. It may be that the author used too many adjectives for a story with limited depth. Listening to the text reminded me of how it feels to view an over acted black and white film during the silent film era.
