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?

 I grew up in Michigan and love to read books that basically took place in my back yard. Lumber camps and timber is still such a big part of the history of Michigan. I loved the details into the lumber camps, some not pretty, but factual. I loved Lily's fortitude to rescue her sister at all cost. To put the past behind and press forward, a true love for her lost sister. 

In a time when women basically had no say, and little value, Lily searches out to find the rest of her family, her sister in hopes of restoration. I love that she is a strong woman, bent on achieving her goal despite the cost. I enjoyed watching her grow in character as well as she learns to start to trust and find other trustworthy people, in a place where they are hard to find. 

Fantastic historical fiction!! This was the first of Jody Hedlund's novels I have read. I am definitely going to check out her other books!
