Great New Book By Serena Miller!!

Her heart seeks sanctuary in the deep woods. But will trouble find her even here?

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 north woods 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 rowdy shanty boys to the warm cookstove and mouth-watering apple pie, every detail is perfectly rendered, transporting you to a time of danger and romance.

MY REVIEW- I had never even heard of Serena Miller before reading this book. I don't know where I have been!! I will definitely be looking for her other book, which you will want to pick up if it is anywhere near as good as this one.

The story starts out with a bang and never lets up. I have never heard of a plot like this before and it was quite interesting. I personally loved the character of Katie. She is not a quitter and fights for what she wants. I know it may seem like she is a coward because she runs but it is quite the opposite. And don't get me started on Robert. He is a knight in rugged pants and calico shirt:) There are soo many things I liked about this book. The style of writing, the characters, the plot, etc. This is an excellent book that I highly recommend!

I received a copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation.
Available October 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
