Product Description

Katherine Bains lost everything when her parents died of consumption in England and she was shunted off to Canada to live with an aunt she never knew. Once she met and married Frank McLean, however, she thought her pain and sadness were gone forever. Then a tragic fire destroys her house and takes the life of her precious infant son. Katherine, Frank, and their two daughters must leave their home and start anew in frigid, rough lumberjack territory. Long ago, she'd abandoned any faith in a God who would allow such devastation and despair to happen. But when catastrophe and heartbreak tail the family and a series of events finds Katherine frightened and hopeless in the deep north wilderness, she discovers she has never been alone. God's mercy is always near, and help comes in the most unexpected ways. When we lose everything we most love, we begin to find what we most need.

Publisher's Description

Katherine Bains lost everything when her parents died of consumption in England and she was shunted off to Canada to live with an aunt she never knew. Once she met and married Frank McLean, however, she thought her pain and sadness were gone forever. Then a tragic fire destroys her house and takes the life of her precious infant son. Katherine, Frank, and their two daughters must leave their home and start anew in frigid, rough lumberjack territory. Long ago, she'd abandoned any faith in a God who would allow such devastation and despair to happen. But when catastrophe and heartbreak tail the family and a series of events finds Katherine frightened and hopeless in the deep north wilderness, she discovers she has never been alone. God's mercy is always near, and help comes in the most unexpected ways. When we lose everything we most love, we begin to find what we most need. Footprints Under the Pines tells the story of one woman's loss and recovery, heartbreak and renewal, defeat and ultimate victory-and her long journey home to a loving Father. "Dawn Batterbee Miller is a fresh new voice in Christian fiction, introducing readers to the exciting and challenging logging world of the Midwest backwoods in the late eighteen nineties. Footprints Under the Pines is a fast-paced story of adventure, romance, and danger that will quickly draw readers in and hold them from first page to last-and leave them wanting more. Highly recommended " -Kathi Macias, www.kathimacias.com, Award-winning author/speaker Coming from New Hope Publishers in 2008-2009: How Can I Run a Tight Ship When I'm Surrounded by Loose Cannons?, A Higher Calling: Modeling a Your-First Love in a Me-First World, Mothers of theBible Speak to Mothers Today "Dawn Miller's Footprints Under the Pines could have been lifted right out of Th e Petoskey News-Review of 1897. With characters you just can't forget and a plot that keeps you turning pages, this book is a must-read for anyone who enjoys pioneer Americana. Miller's graphic depictions of life in northern Michigan's lumbering era make you almost wish you were there-until the tall load falls and everyone runs for their lives. Or someone is sick and the medical establishment has yet to be established. Or a little girl . . . oops, I'd better not go there. But you should, if a quiet evening, a good cup of coffee and a heartwarming story are your cup of tea. Thanks, Dawn Batterbee Miller, for Footprints Under the Pines. Now I wonder, what could you do for a sequel? -Dr. Curtis Alexander, Associate Editor, Missionary Church Today magazine

    This is one of the best books I have read in a very long time! It is definitely a "can't put it down" book. The entire book is so vividly written that it plays as a movie in your head as you read, not wanting a single commercial to interrupt the next scene! Certainly a "must read"!

    Dawn Batterbee Miller is a rising new star in Christian fiction. It was a joy to read a book of historical fiction based on the lumbering days in northern Michigan. I would definitely give Footprints Under the Pines a five star rating. Hurry up Dawn and give us a sequel!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Dawn Batterbee Miller
Located in: Avon Park, Florida
Submitted: December 19, 2009

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Retired School Teacher, now a writer published around the world in such publications as Guideposts, Focus on the Family, Cook Publications, War Cry.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted to invite the reader to visit and view life as it was in the early lumber camps in the mid west.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  And understanding of the hard working and much maligned lumberjack.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I gained a deeper understanding of my own history.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Marlene Bagnul for her guidance as I started the work and was so patient, teaching me so very much about the process of writing a novel. --- My grandpa who worked the farm in summer and worked in the camps in winter.
