New from Jody Hedlund and Bethany House is Unending Devotion. This book will grab your heart and plunge it to places that will cause you to ache for others. It isn't often that a work of fiction addresses subjects such as this one does. 

Lily Young is a photographer's assistant in the late 1800s. She travels with other intentions in mind though. She's looking for her younger sister who ran away from her adoptive parents in search of a better life. Lily is afraid that she's now working in a brothel.

Lily's searching has led her to begin a rescue mission. She finds girls who want to get out and risks her own life to save them from the life that they're now enslaved to.

This book made me think of the all too real problem that plagues us, not only in third world countries, but also here at home in the States. I'm glad the author tackled this subject (and she did it well, mixing in some fact with her fiction as she explains in the end of the book). 

Jody Hedlund is a treasure to be found. Bethany House is blessed to have her and you need to seek out her works. She writes with a depth that is lacking in many other books.
