Unending Devotion - A Review

Photographer assistant Lily Young has one goal - find her sister and rescue her from the life of prostitution that she's been leading. As Lily travels the lumber camps during Michigan's winter months, she saves several girls, but hasn't had luck in locating her sister. The photography work brings her to the small lumber community of Harrison where she meets Connell McCormick, the boss of three different camps. Sparks fly between the two of them as they clash heads over Lily's determination to find her sister and Connell's refusal to acknowledge that things need to change in the town.When Lily's life is put into danger, will Connell be able to rescue the woman he's fallen in love with and stand up to the evil in the town, or will he allow things to stay the way they are and lose any chance he has with Lily?

While this isn't my favorite book by Jody Hedlund, I did enjoy it. Lily is a very strong character. She is very determined and at times, that determination is a major fault for her as well. Connell is determined to live his life in such a way that he glorifies God. The only thing he struggles with is that he needs to take action against the evil in the town. Both Connell and Lily stumble and fall and grow in their relationships with each other and with others. Unlike Hedlund's other books, this one isn't based specifically on the life of someone in history, rather the villain in the book is based on someone from history.

I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recommended to fans of Elizabeth Camden, Laura Frantz, Julie Klassen, Maggie Brendan, Karen Witemeyer.

Rating - 4 stars
