About the Book:

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 review:
I loved this book!   Right away on the very first page, there was an aura of mystery that drew me right into the story and kept turning the pages.  Lily is helping a young girl escape from the life she has been living and although this girl is not her sister, she is not giving up hope of finding her. Right away, I loved Lily's character, she is compassionate and although her main goal and focus is finding her sister, that does not keep her from helping other young girls in need as well. Oren is a great character as well as Connell; these two are both strong main characters and ones I enjoyed reading about.  It is very easy to get into the story as Hedlund's style of writing draws the reader right in and it is filled with descriptions and imagery transporting the reader to the late 1800's traveling around to camps. This is an excellent book filled with mystery, romance, personal choices and decisions and characters growing!
