Unending Devotion by Jody Hedlund

Unending Devotion
Michigan, 1883
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 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?

My Take: I have been seeing alot of articles on Human trafficking lately and it especially came into my forefront when I attended a conference with my mother and daughter and son's girlfirend and their main topic was this one.  It is a huge problem and it seems like we can't do anything about it but like this book shows not careing about the problem is just as bad as commiting the act itself.  It is like you are helping it along by not doing anything about it.  I enjoyed this book and how passionate Lily got about this whole situation especially when her sister was involved.  I liked how she thought of them as humans and how they probably didn't have any choice in the matter.  How many times are we quick to judge people without really knowing the whole story.  I liked the way that this book shows that one person can make a difference.  
I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest review.
