The Lumberjacks' Ball by Carrie Fancett Pagels - Review of the second book in The Christy Lumber Camp series

A decade after surviving a brutal attack, a mercantile owner's daughter seeks to begin her life anew in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. A gifted craftsman wishes to leave his lumberjack life and seeks employment at her new store. When his presence dredges up memories she wishes to suppress, the new proprietress must learn to face her past. Can affection grow between the cabinetmaker and the proprietress of St. Ignace's newest business: And when danger threatens, will they survive to attend The Lumberjacks' Ball?

I was so glad to be able to read more about 'Janie', who now calls herself Rebecca. Carrie has told a story about one strong woman, yes she still fears her attacker, but that only makes her moving on with her life show just how strong she is. I'm really impressed with Carrie's writing and will be watching for another book in this series, hint, hint!

The first book in this series, "The Fruitcake Challenge" (a very fun read) was one of the short stories in the Christmas Traditions Series that came out in 2014
