The measure of Katie Calloway

Measure of Katie Calloway, The, Serena Miller, 978-0-8007-1998-2 This book is exactly the type of book I love reading, anything that has a historical element to it is right up my alley! Plus with this book being set in an almost "frontier" type setting and showing the struggles of everyday life I found myself very intrigued!
Pretty much the book focuses on Katie Calloway, and her attempt to save herself and her younger brother from her abusive and mentally unstable husband. After an extremely frightening incident Katie finally decides to find a way away from her husband and into a relatively safe situation.
After a series of events she finds herself brought on as a cook for a logging group deep in the woods (which suits her fine, since she was still hiding from her husband). Throughout the book we read about her struggles as she learns to cook for a large group of strangers, the struggles she has to get along with other "staff" and the friendships that develop in the midst of it all.
I loved this book, it was fantastic and thoroughly believable! I would highly recommend it!!
