Recently, I received this book from Bethany House to review. I had not read anything by Jody Hedlund before, so I was excited to read this book. I will tell you the story line was taken from an actual town and lumber area. Below is the story line for you to read.
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."
I have not received any payment for my review and the book was sent to me, free, from Bethany House. I enjoyed this book but found it a bit long; I also thought some of it could have been made into a second book. I would definitely read another of her books; she developed her characters in a deep manner and you felt like you had known them in today's world.
I would love to send this book to one of my readers to enjoy; if you are interested please leave me a comment and I will draw a name on Thursday.
I forgot to add this on-I am thankful for receiving free books to read and I am thankful for the gift of eyesight and the ability to read.
Have a great day!
