Jody Hedlund in her new book “Unending Devotion” published by Bethany House Publishers takes us into the life of Lily Young.

From the back cover:  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?

There doesn’t seem to be many books that use the background of lumber camps.  Shame really because these camps offer such a wealth of story possibilities.  However, there is no need to fear because Ms. Hedlund has filled this void with her new novel, “Unending Devotion”.  First there is the quest, Lily is looking for her sister, because she fears she is being held in a brothel and Lily is going to rescue her.  Then there is Connell who doesn’t see the lack of morality in his father’s lumber camps because he feels he is living a moral life.  If you thought the book was exciting when you started just wait until these two characters meet.  Then the excitement really takes off.  It is one thing to ravage the land, it is quite another to ravage people and Ms. Hedlund tells this story with great skill.  Romance, mystery and adventure all rolled into one marvelous story.  I really liked “Unending Devotion” and look forward to more stories from Jody Hedlund.
