The Measure of Katie Calloway...UCC Ladies Book Club Selection

It's time to reveal the next book for the UCC Ladies' Book Club.
Drum roll, please...

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 Northwoods 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 warm cookstove to the rowdy shanty boys and the jagged edges of the saw, every detail is perfectly rendered, transporting the reader back to the time when pine was king, men were made of iron, and rivers were choked with logs on the way to the sawmills. Readers will have a hard time leaving the Northwoods when they turn the last page.

On a personal note...I'm pretty excited to read this book because Gerald has Georgia Callaways in his family tree, although they're spelled a little differently.

We will meet Thursday, September 18th, at 6:30 pm at the home of Nancy Itson.

Please bring a potluck dish.  Drinks and dessert will be furnished.

If you are local and enjoy reading, we invite you to join us.
We have a great group of ladies who love to get together to discuss the books
and just enjoy each other's company.
We have all ages participating.  All we're missing is you!

If you can't make it, I hope you'll still pick up the book and enjoy a good read.

So, order your copy now and start reading!

Hope to see you at the meeting!


I'm so glad you stopped by my neck of the woods!
