I volunteered to review this book without any promises about the review (the rating or the posting).

I was completely thrilled to be able to get a new series from Liza. She’s always been an incredible writer and I was certain this would be no different. What I failed to realize (through no fault of the author) was that the genre included “historical”. Mind you I’m glad I didn’t know. I might have passed this book by since I’m not a huge history reader. And I would’ve missed out on an incredible b

Amy Goodheart's life has been turned upside down when she is cast aside by her father and the townspeople who consider her and her young infant the child of Satan.

Ms. O'Connor tells the tale of an extraordinary girl who has the power to heal with her hands and the power to change lives with her heart.

Amy grew up lost and alone after the death of her mother. Small minded people didn't understand the little girl. Instead they punished her for things outside of her control. But their anger and hate only turned her into a wonderful person. It takes extraordinary pressure and heat to make diamonds.

I loved how Ms. O'Connor gives us a child who loves no matter

Liza gifted me a copy of Pure Innocence. She did not request a review, but I decided to support a fellow author.
From the tense beginning and through the antics of a delightful and intelligent young girl with a fabulous earl for an adoptive father and a silly earl she's in love with, plus just for good measure – some ghosts - both good and bad ones - you have to love a story with ghosts – Liza O'Connor's latest is a fun romp with clever twists and a heroine you will instantly fall in love with.
