Jenny of L'Anse Bay, Special Edition in the series of Great Lakes Romances(R) is set in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Upper Michigan in 1867. Eager to escape the fiery disaster that leaves her home in ashes, Jennifer Crawford sets out on an adventure to an Ojibway Mission on L'Anse Bay. In the wilderness, her affections grow for a native people very different from herself-especially for the chief's son, Hawk. Together, can they overcome the differences of their diverse cultures, and the harsh, deadly weather of the North Country? Michigan's Upper Peninsula wilderness, its historic Ojibway culture, and the harsh realities of the northern woods come to life in this historical retrospective on the life of a young Christian missionary. Readers interested in the ways of the Ojibway, the challenges of remote wilderness living, and a gentle love story that crosses cultural barriers will enjoy Jenny of L'Anse Bay.
