I had received the e-mail from Carrie Fancett Pagels that I had won the Jen Turano book. In our correspondence as to how I would receive the book, Carrie asked if I would like to review her new Novella. Of course I said yes. Well, I now have another "favorite" author to follow!  I really enjoyed reading about Jo and Tom. Carrie brings them to life - you want to keep following their lives when you're done. Maybe there will be a sequel? Hint hint Carrie :) Maybe you did too good a job?

My review:
A lovely tale set in the white pines of a lumber camp in early Michigan.  Jo is the boss' lovely daughter and camp cook. She loves
her family but wishes to break away for a life of her own. Then Tom comes to the camp to work - actually a teacher, but taking the job of a lumberjack to earn extra money for himself and his widowed mother.  Each has been praying for God's direction in their life, and doesn't realize what He has been working out in the background for their future. The fruitcake challenge provides romantic spice and will make you hungry throughout the story, so be prepared with a cup of tea and dessert as you curl up with this story. Sweetly satisfying, a wonderful example of how God works in the lives of the faithful.

I received this book from Carrie Fancett Pagels at "Overcoming With God"
