She’s a wounded girl serving up trouble. 

He’s a pastor’s kid bent on serving God. 

But can they find a glimmer of hope for a future together? 

From the moment Jack O’Bryen kissed the sixteen-year-old tomboy next door, he knew he would love her forever. Lacey Carmichael was everything he’d ever wanted—intelligent, warm, and brimming with life, the perfect complement to his serious and sensible self. A girlfriend who not only shared his faith, but he hoped his future as well, the perfect mate for a would-be pastor. 

Eighteen-year-old Lacey Carmichael has dreamed of marrying Jack O’Bryen since she was twelve years old, the boy next door who always picked up the pieces after her father shattered her heart. But when her cousin leads her astray while Jack’s away at school and her father’s rejection soars to new heights, Lacey finds herself at odds with the boy that she loves, not only jeopardizing their relationship, but Jack’s faith and heart as well.

Great story

This prequel shows very clearly the temptations of young love and how peer pressure and hormones can affect us. It’s also a great lead-in to the novel Isle of Hope. I’m anxious to read it now.

A Glimmer of Hope is the prequel to the Isle of Hope series. As intended, this short story leaves you hanging and you will definitely need to read the first complete book in the series. Julie Lessman has written strong characters who, I am sure, will continue in the rest of the series.

I'm a big fan of Julie Lessman's historical fiction and she does not disappoint in the contemporary genre! A Glimmer of Hope is centered around two young adults in a long-time relationship and their families. Jack admirably tries to protect Lacey without compromising his commitment to honor God's Word. Unfortunately, Jack can't fill the hole in her heart where her daddy's love should be. Lacey's father is verbally abusive and breaks her heart time and again. The horrible influence of her cousin, Nikki, drives Lacey's situation from bad to worse! What is going to happen next between Jack and Lacey? If I know Julie Lessman, it's going to be good and I can't wait to read Isle of Hope to find out!

I found this book accidentally. I hadn't seen anything written by Julie in a long time and I love her writing. I visited her blog and I found she has taken a different route in her writing. So I snatched up this novella eager to see how she would handle contemporary romance. This is a super quick read and introduction to her novel Isle of Hope. I was actually very surprised to turn the last page and that was it. But it's a great lead in to the next novel (which you can read that first chapter at the end of this book).
