Unending Devotion...Review

About the book:
Michigan, 1883

In Her Darkest Hours, Is He the Man She Needs?

Lily Young longs to find her lost sister or will die trying. Heedless of any danger, she searches logging camps and towns, posing as a photographer’s assistant. And then she arrives in Harrison, Michigan–and the sights of Connell McCormick.

Connell is determined to increase the fortune of his lumber-baron father and figures as long as he’s living an upright life, that’s what matters. But when Lily arrives in town she upends his world, forcing him to confront the truth that dangerous men have gained too much power while good men turn a blind eye.

Vexing but persuasive, Lily soon secures Connell’s help, drawing them ever closer to each other. Will standing for what’s right cost them both everything?

I really enjoyed Jody Hedlund's second novel The Doctor's Lady and looked forward to this one.  While I liked Lily and Connell well enough, this wasn't a story that truly resonated with me.  Although noble, Lily was little too good to be true.  The logging aspect was fascinating.  The descriptions were vivid and the story had compelling aspects. Fans of historical fiction and Jody Hedlund especially will enjoy it.  I found it a nice diversion and an easy, comfortable read.

Thanks to Litfuse Publicity for the opportunity to review this book.  You can learn more about Jody Hedlund here.  You can purchase your own copy here.  You can see other reviews and tour stops here.
