A MODEL OF DEVOTION by Mary Connealy, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #ReleaseDay


The Lumber Baron's Daughters #3

What an exciting conclusion to a stellar series. I felt like I was watching an episode of The Wild Wild West when Jilly and Nick gave chase on the train!

These three very smart sisters plot how to run the family lumber business they inherited. “Jilly’s math brain. Michelle’s invention brain. Laura’s chemical brain. They were a trio of mad scientists, for a fact.” And with the help of three very capable men, they try to outsmart the villains bent on destroying them and Stiles Lumber.

With the voice of reason and godly wisdom from parson Caleb, the girls and their mother keep trusting God to get them out of trouble. Jilly takes Nick’s wise words to heart. “Take the work that you do on your own strong, capable shoulders, but let God take the weight off your soul.” Nick and Jilly” turned and walked toward promises. Toward danger. Toward their future.”

Ms. Connealy has given us another outstanding book with unique characters that teach us spiritual truths in a very enjoyable way.

BackCover Blurb:

She's finally claimed her independence . . . how far will she go to keep it?

A brilliant engineer, Jilly Stiles has been educated since childhood to help run her father's lumber dynasty. With the company safe from her stepfather after the marriages of her two sisters, Jilly can now focus on her dream of building a mountaintop railroad--and never marry.

Nick Ryder came into Jilly's life when he saved her mother from her no-good stepfather, and he's prepared to protect Jilly from anything that threatens to harm her--as long as he keeps his heart from getting involved.

But when a cruel and powerful man goes to dangerous lengths to make Jilly his own, she must make a decision between her safety and her hard-won independence.
