Reading Room & Book Recommendation: With You Always by Jody Hedlund

This book recommendation comes not from me but my mother. I order new books, and if I'm busy finishing one up, she "steals" it away. Actually, my mother and I have been sharing a library for years. She browses my shelves and whisks them off, which means she reads some of the books long before I have a chance. We have similar tastes in most books.


In this case, it's With You Always by Jody Hedlund. I've not yet read one of Jody's books, but I am eager to do so after the glowing recommendation. According to ma mère, this is a well-written book and enjoyable story. She immediately asked if I would order book two, and that is a recommendation in itself. Enjoy!



When a financial crisis in 1850s New York leaves three orphaned sisters nearly destitute, the oldest, Elise Neumann, knows she must take action. She's had experience as a seamstress, and the New York Children's Aid Society has established a special service: placing out seamstresses and trade girls. Even though Elise doesn't want to leave her sisters for a job in Illinois, she realizes this may be their last chance.

The son of one of New York City's wealthiest entrepreneurs, Thornton Quincy faces a dilemma. His father is dying, and in order to decide which of his sons will inherit everything, he is requiring them to do two things in six months: build a sustainable town along the Illinois Central Railroad, and get married. Thornton is tired of standing in his twin brother's shadow and is determined to win his father's challenge. He doesn't plan on meeting a feisty young woman on his way west, though.

The Reading Room is where I share books, because authors are readers, too! I don't rate books on my blog, but I do like to share books I've read and enjoyed. My tastes are eclectic, so expect to see everything from sweet, wholesome romance to edge-of-your-seat, sexy thrillers, and more in between.
