About the Book:
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?
About the Author:
Lily Young and her sister were orphans when her sister was placed with a family. She wasn’t happy and ran away for a “job where she could make lots of money fast.” Lily knew this was not good and was determined to rescue her sister from a live of prostitution. She worked with a kind bear of a man named Oren who was a traveling photographer. As they travel through various logging camps Lily searches for her sister and saves other young girls from a gruesome fate.
In one small town Lily meets Connell, a young man trying to prove himself to his father and also “one of the boys.” At first he doesn’t understand her militant stand against bars and whores but starts to come around and soon the two are fighting together to both find Lily’s sister and clean up the town. But not everyone is in favor of said clean up. Will their blossoming relationship be able to withstand familial and other pressures?
This is a sweet tale of an impetuous girl and a thoughtful boy falling in love. Ms. Hedlund builds her romance slowly with humor, grace and it is grounded in as much reality as possible. She has a true gift for bringing time and place to life. It was a fast, page turning read with very likable good guys and rotten bad guys. She brings to light the horrors of a “trade” that goes on to this day, luring in young girls with promises of easy money. The love of family – whether the one you are born into or the one you create – can help surmount any difficulty.
