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.

But Lily challenges everything Connell 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.

    " This author is from my home town and this book is about my state and area history. Of course it is interesting, but it is an average read. I liked her first two books better. "

    " I finished reading Unending Devotion by Jody Hedlund yesterday afternoon, and I will truly miss Lily, Connell and the residents of Harrison. Jody's scenes are wonderfully rich in detail. From the warm blazing fire of the Northern Hotel with the smell of fresh baked molasses cookies, strong coffee, pork and beans, and wet socks drying on the line by the hearth...to the scratching and pawing of the wolves just inches away from ripping Lily and Connell apart.... to bracing the bitter cold winds in the logging camps under majestic white pines that reach the sky. The characters are unforgettable: Strong willed Lily does everything in her power, and most times to her own detriment, to not only find and save her sister Daisy, but to help other young enslaved girls be free of their oppressors and the horrible lives imposed on them. She'll stop at nothing. Proper yet feisty, she is adorable. Connell, honest and hardworking, oversees his father's logging camps. He is every woman's dream. A real gentleman, proper, and as honorable inside as he is handsome on the outside. He will risk everything to save Lily, including his own life. A great guy from the onset, but even a better man after knowing and loving Lily. There is not enough space here to mention all the unique characters, for instance: Lovable old men like Oren, who will kill any man for laying so much as a pinkie on Lily... Mr. Heller who is reduced to whittling away the hours, and Vera, who owns the Northern Hotel. She takes no guff, has a heart bigger than herself, and runs a reputable establishment amid the chaos and corruption in town... Or poor Stuart, owner and operator of the only newspaper in town, the Harrison Herald, has lost so much. He carries the residue of grief in his eyes ....And what would Unending Devotion be without characters like James Carr. An evil man who lives, and destroys the lives of young girls, guarded by his cronies in the disgusting place he calls home, the stockade. He's greatly feared, and rightly so, since he holds the town in the palm of his hand through intimidation and murder. He never banked on Lily though. This is a real page turner, can't put it down, have to know what happens next, please don't let this be the last page kind of book! I will not only miss the little town of Harrison, but the people who call it home too. I highly recommend this book. "
