Orphaned in Iowa, Annie Kennedy moves to Boston to stay with her spinster aunt. She longs for romance to fill the void left by her parents' death. But when she falls hard for Steven O'Connor, the man who broke an engagement to her sister, Annie is worried. Will he break her heart too when he discovers who she really is?
With heart-pounding romance, intense family drama, and emotional twists and turns, A Love Surrendered is everything Julie Lessman's many fans have been waiting for.
Annie is a sweet gentle girl who is hungry for friends. Steven O'Connor tries to keep her from getting in with the wrong crowd, but is having a hard time not falling for her. Annie is already head over heels for him.
This is a really fun book. It takes place during the prohibition era. So you will see some things that pertain to the era while reading.
Steven has trouble knowing when to stop being to "friendly" with girls in the past so he tries to keep his distance with Annie.
Annie and her younger sister are living with their Aunt, who seems to not like both girls.
While I found the book fun to read, I did not care for some of the more personal conversations the characters had with each other.
They tended to deal to much with "relations with the opposite sex" more than I would have liked.
