Life and Love in a Logging Camp: The Measure of Katie Calloway by Serena Miller
|The Measure of Katie Calloway|
by Serena Miller
In her Revell debut, The Measure of Katie Calloway, author Serena Miller brings to life the logging camps of old with danger, romance, and a dash of humor. The loggers in the wilds of Michigan had very little but no matter what they always had full stomachs. A bad camp cook could be worse than a log jam on a river drive but thanks to Katie Calloway the men of Robert Foster's company ate like kings.
This book is a very interesting look into a seldom seen world even today. There will be times when you're heart literally skips a beat especially when the river rats follow their pine to payday down raging rapids in the spring. Loggers who went under, no matter how strong a swimmer they were, often didn't surface. Ms. Miller definitely knows how to write a dramatic scene that takes your breath! To top it all off there's a subtle romance that pulls at the heartstrings. The conclusion was a bit rushed for my taste but all in all this is definitely an author whose books I will be reading more of.
