Michigan, 1883In 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?
I think this was one of the first books I read by Jody and I was so excited to reread it!!! It was just as good the second time!
I felt soooo bad for lily on her quest to find her sister daisy, who had run off from the family she was staying with and started workng in a saloon, but I thought it was awesome that while she searched she rescued as many women as she could.
There are many mentions of soiled doves and the saloons they work in and the one main “bad” guy seems to beat up every other person. But it was good to learn about things I never would have thought about. And I loved that the overall theme of the book is redemption!!
I also liked learning a bit about the logging industry back than!
