With You Always - A Book Review
It is the early 1850's and Elise Neumann is working hard to care for her younger sisters. They have been living at the 7th Street Mission. The mission helps prostitutes reform, but the Miss Pendleton wants to help out Elise. This makes the other ladies very jealous.
The city is a very dangerous place and one day while on an errand Elise finds herself in the midst of danger as the gangs of the city start rioting. Thornton Quincy comes to her rescue and helps her back to the safety of the mission. There is an instant connection between the two, but Thornton must stay focused. He has the chance to inherit his family's wealth, but he must first prove himself more worthy than his brother.
Elise and Thornton are two people for completely different worlds but they cannot deny the spark between them. If they let it continue to grow they will lose everything they've been working for.
I always enjoy the Author's note at the end of the book. Not all Author's include this, but Jody Hedlund did not disappoint here either. I enjoy getting a glimpse into the thought process behind a book and a little more facts to go along with the fiction.
I would definitely recommend this great book. I can wait for the second book in the series to come out!
