The Measure of Katie Calloway

The Civil War has ended, but in Katie Calloway's Georgia home conflict still rages. To protect herself and her young brother from her violent and unstable husband, she flees north, finding anonymity and sanctuary as the cook in a Northwoods lumber camp. The camp owner, Robert Foster, wonders if the lovely woman he's hired has the grit to survive the never-ending work and harsh conditions of a remote pine forest in winter. Katie wonders if she can keep her past a secret from a man she is slowly growing to love.

With grace and skill, Serena Miller brings to life a bygone era. From the ethereal, snowy forest and the warm cookstove to the rowdy shanty boys and the jagged edges of the saw, every detail is perfectly rendered, transporting the reader back to the time when pine was king, men were made of iron, and rivers were choked with logs on the way to the sawmills.
My Thoughts:
I recieved this book this past friday I was drawn in by the cover art and the setting of a logging camp.
Katie's skills in the cooks cabin was so well written I felt my self growing hungry for  fried potatoes, flapjacks and so much more.  I really felt a bond with the characters and I hated for the book to end it was such a good book fora rainy weekend.
