Wholesome Historical with an Unusual Venue

If you are looking for a historical romance that is a little out of the ordinary, then you may like this book. The story revolves around Big John who is strong, silent lumberjack who may look intimidating but is actually a big softy deep down inside. The heroine, Dani is a spitfire who works hard to doing whatever it takes for her loved ones to be happy. The love story between the two is rather G rated compared to other historical romances of our time, but it will still grab the readers interests.

What makes this book stand out is the insight it gives the reader into life in a logging community along the Mississippi River at the turn of the last century. I had no idea how a lumber camp works seasonally, or about logging drives down the Mississippi. I did not know about the setting up of hospitals by the Sisters to care for the lumberjacks. I personally love historical romances, but I get tired of them always being set in Regency London, the Scottish Highlands, or a Texas cattle ranch; this was a little something different!
