About this Book
When new lumberjack, Tom Jeffries, tells the camp cook, Jo Christy, that heâ€™ll marry her if she can make a fruitcake, â€œas good as the one my mother makes,â€ she rises to the occasion. After all, heâ€™s the handsomest, smartest, and strongest axman her camp-boss father has ever had in his campâ€”and the cockiest. And she intends to bring this lumberjack down a notch or three by refusing his proposal. The fruitcake wars are on! All the shanty boys and Joâ€™s cooking helpers chip in with their recipes but Jo finds sheâ€™ll have to enlist more helpâ€”and begins corresponding with Tomâ€™s mother.
Step back in time to 1890, in beautiful Northern Michigan, near the sapphire straits of Mackinac, when the white pines were â€œwhite goldâ€ and lumber camps were a way of life. Jo is ready to find another life outside of the camps and plans that donâ€™t include any shanty boys. But will a lumberjack keep her in the very place sheâ€™s sworn to leave?
