In 1872 Mary Margaret left Seton Falls, South Carolina to travel across the country to Devil's Camp # 2, Oregon to marry a man she never met, Walter Peabody. When she reaches her destination, she learns that she made it in time to attend her fianc's funeral. Walt bled to death after accidentally cutting himself with an ax. Rather than turning back, Mary Margaret decides to live in the cabin she just inherited from Walt.
As an aftermath of his time in the civil War Colonel Tom Randall hates the south especially the belles symbolized in living flesh and blood by Mary Margaret. He demands Meggy, as she calls herself, go back to the Carolinas where she belongs. However, Meggy is more than just a steel magnolia as she begins selling the pies she bakes. Soon Tom finds he admires Meggy and not long afterward he now loves the courageous female who has taken over the camp. Meggy reciprocates his feelings, but knows this is one Yankee who will never let go of the hatred he feels.

This enjoyable Reconstruction Era romance refreshes the typical story line starring a northern soldier and a southern belle by shifting the locale to the Northwest. By doing this, Lynna Banning introduces the audience to an eccentric invigorating band of secondary players who rejuvenate the plot and enliven the charming lead couple. Still this tale belongs to the Yankee military officer and the angel as their relationship serves as the center of a delightful nineteenth century romance.

I really loved this story. Mishaps, humor and adventure in a logging camp historical had such a very good plot and was so well told! A surprising 'sweet as apple pie' title that left me wanting more!
