Noela Nancarrow reviews THE LUMBERJACKS' BALL by Carrie Fancett Pagels

The Lumberjacks’ Ball (The Christy Lumber Camp Series, Book 2)

Reviewed by Noela Nancarrow
5 Stars *****

 In ‘The Lumberjacks Ball’ you’ll be swept off your feet as you read about the lives surrounding the men and women in and around the lumber camps, in the yesteryear of logging and Balls. This is a beautiful, inspiring story of choosing hope, love, and faith, over fear, and in following God’s signposts along life’s pathways, as these wonderful characters embark on new beginnings.

The community of St. Ignace in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is beginning to pulse with talk of the upcoming Lumberjacks' Ball. Along with a new name, the pretty but very drably-dressed Rebecca Hart yearns to make a new and safe life for herself in this small, scenic city. After narrowly surviving an unimaginable horror visited upon her a decade ago, she still jumps at every shadow. Can Rebecca find liberty from fear and a relationship she can trust, in order to attend this Ball? When lumberman and gifted craftsman Garrett Christy chips away at her barriers, Rebecca finds herself in uncharted territory. Can she let go of the past and brave the future? But what happens when the past she’s running from threatens the present?

This sweet, romantic tale captured my imagination, and my time, with the charming, authentic, and very relatable characters of Rebecca and Garrett. The picturesque landscapes of Michigan and Mackinac Island offered the perfect backdrop to this irresistible love story, and further enhanced by the inspiring message of following God’s leading. Highly recommended!
