The year is 1929.
Katie O’Connor, her boyfriend, Jack and some of there friends are hanging out at a restaurant. It is almost 10 pm. Katie is hungry. Jack hollers for the soda jerk to come take their order. The guy is not intimidated by Katie or her boyfriend. Katie has shocked as she has never met anyone who did not bow down to her every wish. Katie is so mad but to make her evening worse, she comes home past her curfew. Her father puts his foot down and tells Katie that for her punishment, she has to give up her summer to help volunteer at the Boston Children’s Aid Society.
Katie is not thrilled with the idea. Katie gets the surprise of her life when she learns that Luke will be helping out as well as associate director. Will Katie have the summer of her life?
A Hope Undaunted is book one in the Winds of Change series. Julie Lessman is a new to me author. I truly, absolutely loved this book. Mrs. Lessman is a prolific writer. I was instantly transported back in time with Katie. At first I thought Katie was stuck up but once I got to know her, I found her to be very sweet and someone I would hang out with. Katie was full of spunk. Luke is so dreamy. It was easy to see why Katie fell for him. I felt sorry for Luke a little bit. Katie is a spitfire and Luke will have his hands full with her. I read this book in one sitting. A Hope Undaunted gives me hope that the next book in this series will be just as good!
