I haven't ever read anything by Jody before but I am happy to have started with this one!
One of the things I really loved in this book was for me the parallel between the love that Lily has for her lost sister. Without regard for the danger to her own person she searches through logging camps and towns searching for her sister. It reminds me of how God will never give up on us when we are lost.
I also give props to whomever had responsibility for the cover of the book. The cover alone makes you want to pick it up and dive in. Something hauntingly beautiful but with a definite air of mystery.
Lily Young is a women with fire in her soul. She has a passion for helping young women who have been forced into slavery even if it means danger to herself. On the way to saving her sister she will help any of the others who want out of the life they seem trapped in.
Heedless to the danger, she poses as a photographer's assistant so she can have access to the logging camps in her desperate bid to find her sister and save her.
During one such assignment she comes across a man named Connell in a rather unusual way.
Even though she is hard to take sometimes she helps open his eyes to things going on right under his nose so that he can confront the truth and take action the way she does.
But even though it may be right what she's doing is dangerous and may just come at a very high cost.
I give this book two thumbs up and Jody as well! It sucks you into the story and the characters lives right from the first page. Poetic and beautiful until the last word.
