About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Unending Devotion by Jody Hedlund

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?

My Thoughts:

Unending Devotion is a whirlwind of a story with the strongest heroine I have ever encountered!  Lily Young is determined to find her younger sister who has disappeared without a trace.  On her journey she sacrifices her own safety in order to save other young ladies who may have met a similar unsavory fate.  Connell McCormick comes to Lily's assistance when she is in danger- more than once- and she's not sure what to make of him.  In my opinion, Jody Hedlund has outdone herself with Connell McCormick.  A perfect gentleman with a pure heart filled with passion- you'll find yourself swooning!:)  Unending Devotion will have your racing and your blood boiling!  James Carr is the despicable villain that runs The Stockade (house of ill repute)- untouchable and evil.  Could Lily's sister, Daisy, be captured there?  Lily won't stop until she finds out and the truth may cost her her life.  I was racing to the end of the book to find out what happens!   Incredible tale of good versus evil.  I can't wait to read more from Jody Hedlund!
