Sister Lumberjack, Finally!


Sister Lumberjack, finally!

Sister Lumberjack, my soon-to-be-released historical novel, is set in a Minnesota Logging Camp in 1893 at the height of the white pine harvest. The book began as a fleeting thought while writing Abercrombie Trail (North Star Press 2009). Solveig, the indentured servant, became my favorite minor character. In fact, she tried to dominate the whole book and displace Evan Jacobson entirely. That, I could not allow to happen. (You may have noticed that she did not reappear in Pomme de Terre, Birdie, or Blooming Prairie. I was tired of fighting with her.)

But now, in her widowhood, Solveig Rognaldson returns as the star of Sister Lumberjack. She’s a strong character with a mind of her own. There’s no holding her back. I think you’ll love her as much as I do.

Sister Lumberjack is scheduled for release in March of 2024 with North Star Press. Chip Borkenhagen of RiverPlace Press created this beautiful cover. Blue Cottage Agency is working on publicity and a book launch, thanks to a generous (and much appreciated) Five Wings Arts Grant.

I’m thrilled to see it coming together.

      1. Thank you, Lois. How nice of you to take the time to comment. I’m planning a book launch in March. You and Ray will be invited. 🙂

      1. Thank you, Sue. Yes, I wrote a grant for publicity so I expect there will be lots going on. Hackensack is a highlight of my year and I wouldn’t miss it!
