The Lumberjacks' Ball,#2 the Christy Lumber Camp Series by Carrie Fancett Pagels

***** 5 stars

Great Lumberjack Romance Set in St. Ignace...

I loved this sweet romance set in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Carrie Fancett Pagels has taken a tragic 19th century lumberjack song and turned it into a work of faith and triumph in the Lumberjacks' Ball,#2 of the Christy Lumber Camp series.

While the series is set in yesteryear, I was surprised to discover how real the characters were. The human heart can be a very wicked thing, but as Rebecca and Garrett discover, God can circumvent that evil or use it as part of His plan. While it would never be part of His plan to have orphans thrown out, for example, this leads to better things down the line.

I especially loved how Rebecca learned to listen to and obey God. How wise our Father is, even in the absence of the love and care of an earthly father!

This book can stand alone, but now I am off to find books one and three. I gratefully received this book from Goodreads Giveaway and the publisher.
