Cover Focus: Unending Devotion

Unending Devotion by Jody Hedlund

Book blurb from : In 1883 Michigan, Lily Young is determined to save her lost sister, or die trying. Heedless of the danger, her search leads her to Harrison and into the sights of Connell McCormick, a man doing his best to add to the hard-earned fortunes of his lumber-baron father.

Posing as a photographer's assistant, Lily can't understand why any God-fearing citizen would turn a blind eye to the crime rampant in the towns. But Connell needs to earn a profit from the logging camps he runs and figures living an upright life is all that matters. Lily challenges everything he thought he knew, but will they be able to put an end to the corruption that's dominated Harrison for so long?”

Why I like this cover: I suppose I like it a lot from a photographer’s point of view – the contrast between the gray and bleak background with her pinkish shawl is amazing. Lily is a beautiful girl, with that brown hair, and those gentle curls. So pretty! Obviously, the pinkish thing (I think pinkish describes it exactly) is her shawl, or cloak. I wish we could go back to the days when all women wore those! So…elegant. I wonder what she’s looking at…or maybe “regarding” would be the best word. As I’ve already said, the background is great with the color of her cloak. And not only is the cover pretty, but the story sounds great too! I can’t wait to read this book someday.
