From Whiskey Creek Press/Torrid:
Never Love a Logger"
A historical romance set against the background of the big log jam pictured below from the 1886 Taylors Falls, MN, log jam, the largest log jam Ever. It depicts life in the logging days with lots of detail about the lives of people during that time.
What happens when a rough and ready logger who wants no responsibility and thinks he doesn’t deserve a second chance at love falls for an attractive prim and proper lady with a ready made family?
Will and Carrie think there is no chance for them to have a family of their own. Each has reasons to avoid love and entanglements. Will is burned out on responsibility after helping his widowed mother raise his siblings. He turned away from God when his wife and infant son died. Carrie thinks no man will want her and her brother. She promised her father she’d raise her brother and while she’s attracted to Will, duty comes first.
Then the greatest logjam in the world throws them together for six weeks. Will is staying at the boarding house where she works while he and many others try to break up the logjam.
There are many more pictures of the log jam on the MN Historical Society's website and on the WI Historical Society's website as well.
