Love Find You In Glacier Bay Alaska - Tricia Goyer & Ocieanna Fleiss

4.5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Singer Ginny Marshall is one signature away from the recording contract of her dreams-a deal that would guarantee success for the former foster child, who still struggles to bury the memories of her painful childhood. But Ginny needs advice from the one person who will look out for her best interests-her former fiancé, Brett Miller. She travels to the remote town of Glacier Bay, Alaska, where the town's colorful characters and stunning scenery provide respite from LA's pressures.

In Glacier Bay, Ginny discovers a box of old letters and is swept up in the love story between Clay, an early missionary to Alaska Territory, and Ellie, the woman who traveled there to be his children's governess. When Ginny is reunited with Brett in Glacier Bay, will she discover-as Ellie did-that healing and love are sometimes found in the most unexpected places?

MY REVIEW -
Well first off - Is that not an absolutely gorgeous covert? And this book has a story to match! What a wonderful read this was.I absolutely love books like this.

This is really two stories in one.It is a modern day story of Ginny, heart broken and trying to make it as a singer - the question is - will it be on her own and if not, with who? While she goes back to Alaska to seek out the advice of her ex-fiancé, her heart strings are pulled in all sorts of directions. The second story is told in a bunch of old letters Ginny starts reading. The story of Elle, in 1880, who travels to Alaska to become housemaid and possibly wife to a man she doesn't know (like a mail-order bride kind of thing). Ginny starts to see similarities between Elle and herself and she becomes desperate to finish the letters to find out what happens to Elle and who she really is.
 "That you're running again, but this time, its in the right direction. Last time you ran to your dream, but when your fears arose about this contract, you ran to where you felt safe. When we're afraid, we always run to who we feel safe with."
The character development is great! Not only do you get to know Ginny, her ex and his Grandmother, but you also get to know Elle and her new family through the letters. The authors do a fantastic job with this!

There are even a few mysteries in this story. It keeps you guessing with lots of twists and turns. A few things are predictable (which is ok) but a lot of things are not!

This is my 2nd "Love Finds You" book. I would love to read them all! There are so many. How long do you think it will take me? Here is a map of where all the books take place.

  1. I took a cruise in the Inside Passage last year. It was beautiful and one of the most breath-taking places I've ever seen. I truly loved it!
