A Hope Undaunted a Sneak Peek on Reading List

Goodreads Summary:

What happens when the boy she loved to hate becomes the man she hates to love?
The 1920s are drawing to a close, and feisty Katie O'Connor is the epitome of the new woman--smart and sassy with goals for her future that include the perfect husband and a challenging career in law. Her boyfriend Jack fits all of her criteria for a husband--good-looking, well-connected, wealthy, and eating out of her hand. But when she is forced to spend the summer of 1929 with Luke McGee, the bane of her childhood existence, Katie comes face-to-face with a choice. Will she follow her well-laid plans to marry Jack? Or will she fall for the man she swore to despise forever?

Sneak Peek:

"'They're not like us, you know, the men that God bring into lives-they're as different as the night is from the day.' The tenderness of her tone seemed to unravel Faith, causing her to list against the counter with a broken heave. Emma wrapped her in a gentle hug, her head resting against Faith's. 'They don't see things they way we do, Faith - the temptations, the dangers.'"  p 152

Initial Thoughts

This book follows a very large family in the 1920's and because of that the cast is hard to keep up with.  The intro is very long as each character is introduced.  Katie and Luke's story is so interesting though because it does not seem like the story that is usually told from this time period. I am very interested to see how their story pans out, I only wish there were so many side stories making this book so long.
