Happy Friday! Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! For my final FLF for January, I’m featuring a novel that has a strong winter element to it.
This week’s book selection is: Unending Devotion by Jody Hedlund.
It was time. The drunk shanty boys were finally quiet.
About Unending Devotion (Michigan Brides, #1)
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 into 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?
