Acclaim For Julie Lessman


“I have loved Julie Lessman’s writing for years, but I can’t believe how great she writes cowboys. I love westerns and reading Julie’s version is pure fun.”

Mary Connealy, award-winning author of Brides of Hope Mountain Series

“JULIE LESSMAN + WESTERN ROMANCE = GOLD RUSH! You heard it here, folks. I think Julie Lessman was created to write westerns.”

Reading is my SuperPower Blog

Whoa, Whoa, Whoa! If you think sparks were flying between characters in Julie Lessman’s Daughters of Boston novels, then you have GOT to get a load of her new Silver Lining Ranch” novels.”

My Favorite Pastime Blog

A Wing and a Prayer isn’t just a great novel, it’s an epic story that follows star-crossed lovers through the dangerous times of World War II. From WASP training in Texas to Europe’s front lines, I guarantee you’ll be smitten with both the characters and the story. You’ll learn history, you’ll cry, you’ll shout, your heart will pound at the danger and then swell at the romance. But most of all, you’ll come away with a huge sigh of satisfaction and a smile on your face. Don’t miss this one!”

MaryLu Tyndall, award-winning author of Legacy of the King’s Pirates

A Wing and a Prayer is set against a thrilling stretch of time. Women in new roles. Wartime. Heroes and heroines in a terrible battle for freedom. In that exciting era come two characters at odds with each other. The very real things keeping them apart battling with an attraction so powerful it can’t be resisted, though they certainly try. A fun, fast, exciting addition to the O’Connor saga.

Mary Connealy, award-winning author of Brides of Hope Mountain Series

“In Isle of Hope Lessman tells a poignant tale of first loves reunited and families reconciled. Both emotionally captivating and spiritually challenging, this sweet southern love story deals with issues of forgiveness and restoration. Fans of Lessman will be absolutely delighted with this riveting tale!”

Denise Hunter, bestselling author of Falling Like Snowflakes

“In Isle of Hope, award-winning author Julie Lessman weaves a story of how past choices collide with future consequences. Lessman’s novel has it all: lush details, dynamic characters, and a storyline that keeps you turning the pages. The characters Lessman created in Isle of Hope confront their (in)ability to forgive – and as you fall in love with these characters, be prepared to question your beliefs about forgiveness.”

Beth K. Vogt, author of Crazy Little Thing Called Love, and a 2015 RITA® Finalist and a 2015 and 2014 Carol Award finalist

“Fans of Julie Lessman’s historical romances will love this modern day love story! Isle of Hope is a heartwarming and inspirational novel about forgiveness sought and restoration found. I’m enamored with the large and wonderful O’Bryen family and I thoroughly enjoyed the romances Julie skillfully crafted for both Jack O’Bryen and his mom Tess. A delight!”

Becky Wade, award-winning author of My Stubborn Heart and The Porter Family series including A Love Like Ours

Rachel McRae of LifeWay Stores

Maggie Brendan, author of the Heart of the West and The Blue Willow Brides series

“Julie Lessman brings all her passion for romance rooted in her passion for God to A Heart Revealed. Emma Malloy is her finest heroine yet. These characters, with their own personal struggles and the ignited flame of an impossible love, fill the pages of this powerful, passionate, fast-paced romance.”

Mary Connealy, bestselling author of the Lassoed in Texas, Montana Marriages, Trouble in Texas, and Wild at Heart series

“What an interesting mix of characters. Rather than a single boy-meets-girl romance, Julie Lessman’s latest novel takes readers on an emotional roller coaster with several couples—some married, some yearning to be married—as they seek to embrace love, honor the Lord, and uncover a dark truth that’s been hidden for a decade. Readers who long for passion in their love stories will find it in abundance here!”

Liz Curtis Higgs, bestselling author of Thorn in My Heart

“Readers will not be able to part with these characters come ‘The End.”

Laura Frantz, award-winning author of Love’s Reckoning

“With an artist’s brushstroke, Julie Lessman creates another masterpiece filled with family and love and passion. Love at Any Cost will not only soothe your soul, but it will make you laugh, stir your heart, and release a sigh of satisfaction when you turn the last page.”

MaryLu Tyndall, bestselling author of Veil of Pearls
