A Glimmer of Hope: A Novella Prequel to Isle of Hope

By Julie Lessman


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.

Book Takeaway:

In today's amoral climate, doing things God's way reaps blessing and protection.

Why the author wrote this book:

To introduce readers to Jack and Lacey in Isle of Hope, which is my new contemporary that actually begins eight years later.


"Emotional, realistic, relatable, compelling - A Glimmer of Hope & Isle of Hope touched my heart more deeply than other prequel & novel ever has. The story of Jack & Lacey is changing reader's lives!"
