My rating: 5 Stars!
‘The Measure of Katie Calloway’ is the first book that I’ve read by Serena Miller and I very much enjoyed it!
I found Katie’s story very sad and heartbreaking. She was married to an abusive husband who (in the first chapter) tried to kill her. Katie, upon learning this, hurriedly left Georgia and her violent husband behind, traveling North with her brother. She ends up in Michigan where she secures a job as a lumber camp cook.
Her heart seeks sanctuary in the deep woods. But will trouble find her even here?
I liked Katie’s, Robert’s, Mose’s, and Skypilot’s characters. The story was entertaining, suspenseful, romantic, and interesting. I read ‘The Measure of Katie Calloway’ relatively quick and would enjoy reading a sequel – just to see how the character’s stories develop.
The whole aspect of the lumber camp, wildfires, and shanty boys made me enjoy ‘The Measure of Katie Calloway’ all the more!
I think if you enjoy a good story with romance and a little suspense, then you would enjoy ‘The Measure of Katie Calloway’! Recommended!
