Together Forever by Jody Hedlund review

As a Bethany House Blogger Reviewer, each month I am given the opportunity to review new release books written by some of my favorite authors.  Jody Hedlund has become one such author for many reasons.  Her writing is developed and accurate for the time period her story is written about; her character and rich and inviting, drawing you into the story.  She will often throw in something you weren't expecting and makes each plot exciting.  This book was so rich and is the first I've read dealing with Orphan Trains.  As always, after I read one of her books I find myself wanting more.
From the publisher:

 Will the Mistakes of Their Past Cost Them a Chance at Love?
"Determined to find her lost younger sister, Marianne Neumann takes a job as a placing agent with the Children's Aid Society in 1858 New York. She not only hopes to offer children a better life, but prays she'll be able to discover whether Sophie ended up leaving the city on an orphan train so they can finally be reunited.

Andrew Brady, her fellow agent on her first placing-out trip, is a former schoolteacher who has an easy way with the children, firm but tender and friendly. Underneath his charm and handsome looks, though, seems to linger a grief that won't go away--and a secret from his past that he keeps hidden.

As the two team up, placing orphans in the small railroad towns of Illinois, they find themselves growing ever closer . . . until a shocking tragedy threatens to upend all their work and change one of their lives forever."

As a blogger reviewer, I received this book free of charge from the publisher.  No review, positive or otherwise was required; all opinions are my own.  I would give Jody Hedlund a 5 star rating, for such an incredible story.  Thank you to Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing for having this wonderful program.
