A decade after surviving a brutal attack, a mercantile owner’s daughter begins her life anew in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. A gifted craftsman wishes to leave the lumber camp and seeks employment at her new store. When his presence dredges up memories she wishes to suppress, the proprietress must learn to face her past and open her heart. When complications arise, will they overcome adversity in time for The Lumberjack's Ball?

Carrie Fancett Pagels’ writing is one of the reasons I read historical books. I have enjoyed learning about the history of logging in the upper peninsula of Michigan. It’s fascinating! Plus, there is always a strong spiritual thread woven seamlessly throughout the story.
Garrett Christy has been my favorite character in this series. He’s trying to break away from lumberjacking and follow his own calling as a craftsman. Sometimes that’s difficult in a family business. He’s a great guy with integrity and honor who loves the Lord and Rebecca knows from past experience just how magnanimous of a man he is. Speaking of Rebecca, she’s had some tough life experiences to face and learn to overcome, but with God’s grace, she is well on her way to becoming the Daughter of the King she is called to be.
Another great thing I enjoyed about this book is that the story didn’t end when the villain made his final appearance. There is more story. Yes!!! I’m glad it wasn’t rushed to an end. I was left with a sense of contentment in the future of Garrett and Rebecca, and a foretaste of what’s to come for Richard ‘Moose’ Christy and Juliana. Pagels knows how to finish and finish well!
I’m eagerly anticipating Lilacs for Juliana, the next book in The Christy Lumber Camp Series. I was provided a copy of this book for review purposes. No monetary compensation has been received.
