Book Spotlight: Searching For You by Jody Hedlund

Look what came in the mail today: Searching For You by Jody Hedlund! 

I've been eager to read this novel since I finished Together Forever and I am thrilled to be part of Jody's launch team. Hoping to dive into the book this weekend and, of course, I'll put out a review after reading it.

In the meantime, check out my reviews of the other novels in Jody Hedlund's Orphan Train series: With You Always and Together Forever.  


Title: Searching For You
Author: Jody Hedlund
Publisher: Bethany House
Release Date: December 4, 2018 
Genre: Historical  Fiction / Romance

For years, Sophie Neumann has been running from the orphanages of 1850s New York City. Tasked with caring for two younger children, she's determined not to let them be taken from her, and not to abandon them the same way her older sisters did her. But times are growing desperate, and when she falls in with the wrong crowd and witnesses a crime, she realizes fleeing the state is her only option.

Disappearing with her two young charges into a group of orphans heading west by train, Sophie hopes to find safety and a happy life. But when the train stops in Illinois, she faces an agonizing decision as the orphans will be placed in new homes. Afraid she'll lose them forever, she finds help in a familiar face she never expected to see so far from New York.

Reinhold Weiss has finally purchased his own small farm in Illinois. With mounting debts, a harvest to bring in, and past scars that still haunt him, Reinhold is in no position to give his heart away . . . but can he say no when his long-lost friend shows up on a nearby farm pleading for his help?
