In depression era Minnesota, Helen Swenson inherits her deceased parents' dream resort--six cabins in need of repair near the Canadian border. Lumberjack Riley Flaherty has recently lost his job. When Helen offers him a job as one as her 'handy man' he gladly accepts, smitten by her beauty.

Breath of God - Lori Ness
A girl on a Minnesota farm in the early 1900's has been forced into a woman's responsibilities too soon.

Memories of the love between her parents and her mother's love help Betsy make the decisions she needs to face the future.
Leona's Review:
I found a clipping from the newspaper about these authors who meet in a place near me in Wyoming, Minnesota so I had an interest in the local authors. I checked out this book from my library in North Branch, Minnesota.
This book is a selection of short  stories and all include the Northern Lights and stories based in Minnesota.
This group of authors is called The Northern Lights Writers of Minnesota.  
After each chapter is About the Author.
