Unending Devotion (#01 in Michigan Brides Collection Series)

High-Stakes Drama Meets High-Tension Romance

In 1883 Michigan, Lily Young is on a mission to save her lost sister, or die trying. Heedless of the danger, her searches of logging camps lead her to Harrison and into the sights of Connell McCormick, a man doing his best to add to the hard-earned fortunes of his lumber baron father.

Posing during the day as a photographer's assistant, Lily can't understand why any God-fearing citizen would allow evil to persist and why men like Connell McCormick turn a blind eye to the crime rampant in the town. But Connell is boss-man of three of his father's lumber camps in the area, and like most of the other men, he's interested in clearing the pine and earning a profit. He figures as long as he's living an upright life, that's what matters.

Lily challenges everything he thought he knew, and together they work not only to save her sister but to put an end to the corruption that's dominated Harrison for so long.

Dont miss this amazing read.
5 stars By Margot, Nov 07 2013
There's passion, suspense, drama, adventure, humour, education and social reform all held together by the amazing story of Lily Young, who tries to rescue her sister, Daisy, from prostitution in the lumber industry ruled Michigan of 1883. She stands for temperance, family and morals against environmental destruction, drunkenness and white slavery. But she stands in her own strength. It's also the story of Connell McCormick, wealthy lumber king, who learns to care about what Lily cares about when he learns to care about Lily. They both learn to stand in God's strength.
I loved that it wasn't just a shallow romance set in an historical setting. It was eye opening to see how that particular historical setting influenced things that are still issues in society today. I didn't just come away entertained - I came away informed, educated and thinking about how social reform works. Well done Jody Hedlund.

Brilliant storytelling
5 stars By Rel of Relz Reviewz, Oct 03 2012
Jody Hedlund diverts from her former stories about true historical figures to write a more traditional historical romance in a non traditional setting, with equally brilliant results. Unending Devotion is a captivating read, laced with appealing protagonists, nasty villains, danger, excitement and romance with spiritual depth and challenge.  Lily is unconventional, at times foolishly headstrong, but completely devoted to her sister, even at risk to her own life.  Connell is a remarkable man, charming and caring, yet unable to see his blind spots for what they are. The two commence an intriguing friendship, borne out of an entertaining and embarrassing introduction, as Lily tumbles into his life and upsets his ordered world. Jody doesn't shy away from the realities of life in the lumber camps as the stark beauty and heedless destruction, of both trees and people, come to life under her deft touch. The underlying spiritual theme is a challenging one that Jody weaves throughout the tale with grace and insight. Minor characters are full bodied and entertaining from the gruff and fatherly Oren to the faithful Vera and flighty Daisy.  Jody is one talented writer and holds her own alongside such wonderful writers as Tamera Alexander, Laura Frantz and Liz Curtis Higgs.
