Reviewed By Bil Howard for Readers' Favorite


In Sinful Purity, K. A. Standen expertly contrasts the issues of bondage and freedom on two different levels: the institutional and the inner spiritual. It is a story filled with deep inner tension as Liz works her way out of the darkness of hidden childhood and into the light of freedom. The plot is thoughtful and well-developed and the reader will feel the inner conflict and tension that grips Liz. It is almost impossible to put this book down as the reader pursues each of the suspenseful twists and turns which Liz faces as she unravels the identity that lies beneath. This is a thought provoking masterpiece which will serve the reader well as it questions the deeper truths of bondage and freedom. An honest book. Highly recommended reading.


Reviewed by Lit Ami for Reader's Favorite

In terms of suspense and mystery, Sinful Purity hits the ground running. I was transfixed, starting from the story's prologue itself. Walking in a cold and rainy night, the protagonist's emotional and bloodied physical pain expressed through the haunting and beautiful prose swiftly evoked my curiosity.  The fascination was instant and I was eager to start chapter one. Coupled with the right amount of angst, romance, and even humor, it definitely gives a great boost to the well-developed characters. From start to finish, the plot keeps me on the edge, as K.A. Standen keeps it tight, leaving no room for me to guess in advance about what will come next. By the time the story comes to an end, with far greater power than it started, Standen has done the work of showing the readers how a great story can still linger in one's mind and will not be easily forgotten.

I really liked this story! It came to a surprise to me actually. It starts out kind of slow but gets much more involved and by the time this book ends I was hooked and wanting it to continue! I think I may have to read book 2!

Though this book is shorter than my preferred book length, it was still able to tell a good story. The first three chapters lay a good foundation for the story and for the series to come. Don't let the idea of members of the Catholic Church as a nemesis put you off. Whether you are Catholic or not, it is a good story and by no means does it bash the church as a whole - this is not Angles and Demons or The da Vinci Code. It is a sweet coming of age story that most of us will be able to relate to.

K.A. Standen’s “Sinful Purity” riveting novel is a must read that keeps you guessing until the very end. This story begins with willful Mary Elizabeth, an orphan at Mary Immaculate Queen Orphanage questioning the church’s nuns practice of naming all the orphaned girls, including her Mary. Early in the book you get a clear indication that something sinister is going on at Mary Immaculate.

However, the author does a great job balancing clues, innuendos and hints without giving up the conclusion or making it predictable. The reader will know early on who the antagonist is but the reader will not know in what way or to what degree.

I was not a big fan of Mary Elizabeth’s first love interest so I am interested to see how that plays out in the sequel. There are a couple of questions still unanswered which is a brilliant way of inviting the reader to check out the next novel.

Standen has a unique writing style that draws you immediately into the prisoned world of the orphanage and compelling you to connect with the main character.

One of my favorite lines, “There in the corner of the courtyard he bared his soul to me, with only the shade tree and the crucifixes as witness.” is an example of Standen’s ability to emotionally set the tone and themes of the book through visual representation.

This book is marvelous and explores religious zealousness and faith in a nonthreatening way.
