...She's ayoung woman raising her younger brother and he's a widower who owns a loggingcompany. She's attracted to him, but her Aunt warns her that loggers just love'em and then leave 'em...
Ms. Currydoes a very nice job of describing logging life back in 1886 on the St. CroixRiver. I grew up in the state of Washington and visited a lot of logging campsand exhibits. It made it easy for me to visualize the saws they used and the pikesfor moving the logs. My father-in-law still had his spiked boots. Life wasdifferent then. Everything was done by manpower or with horses. The author'sdescription of the life and times of the loggers and how they impacted towns isvery accurate and authentic....The authortakes two wounded beings and starts their relationship with a near collisionoutside the tavern. Will gets knocked out of the tavern and almost falls onCarrie. From there, Ms. Curry takes them on the slow dance of courtship. It'sfraught with potholes. They are both working and haven't much time together.Other people are vying for their attention. Then there is Carrie's Aunt'swarning ringing in her head. And he will go home and will only return for thefall logging again. What hope is there?
Thisauthor entertains you with a good solid story that keeps you reading as youwait to see what happens next in the fragile relationship between the two maincharacters. It's a very good historical romance that I enjoyed reading. Why notget a copy and see what you think?
