Waiting on Wednesday: A Passion Denied!!!

I've been waiting to participate in Waiting on Wednesday until I could share the cover of my most anticipated book. Julie sent me the final cover this weekend, and I'm so excited...I just love the blue tones and the synopsis sounds amazing. I even think Beth looks a little like Rachel McAdams in the picture.

Julie said that she had to rewrite some of the book, because her publisher thought it was too dark. I have to say that really intrigues me and she'll be back for a huge celebration of the final book in The Daughters of Boston series in April or May and an interview where she promises to talk more about stay tuned!

Here's the information about the book from Julie's website:

Book 3, working title A Passion Denied, is the story of Faith and Charity’s little sister, Lizzie, a shy bookworm who dreams of a fairy-tale romance. It unfolds a man’s dark past and a young girl’s shattered dreams … and the God who redeems it all.

Elizabeth O’Connor is the little sister John always longed for. With a fire for God in his belly, he has been her spiritual mentor since she was thirteen, sharing her love of literature and her thirst for God. But when his gangly protégé blossoms into a beautiful young woman bent on loving him, he refuses to act on the attraction he feels. His past won’t let him go there. Unfortunately, “Lizzie” won’t let him go anywhere else … until his dark and shocking secrets push her away.

It sounds wonderful, doesn't it????

Go visit Jill at Breaking the Spine to find out what everyone else is waiting for!

:o) I too was so excited when she sent me a "peek" of the cover over the weekend... This is my most favorite of covers of the three Daughter's books! Of course I have been looking forward to this story the most because Lizzie reminds me so much of me and that dream of a fairy tale :o)

I will be on pins and needles waiting for this it April or May yet???

I'm impatient for this one and for Time Masters: The Prophecy by Geralyn Beauchamp but The Prophecy won't be out till late 2009.

That sounds like a really good book. I'll have to check out the rest of the series as well. Thanks for sharing! Here's mine:

Oh man, I was so excited for the second one and then I was slightly disappointed... I hope this one is better. And "too dark" that's weird. although I guess for my sake I'm glad it's not as dark I wonder how that affected her story, if they made her change it. I'll definitely be interested to read her thoughts on that.
