Love Finds You in Glacier Alaska by Tricia Goyer & Ocianna Fleiss

About Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska:

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 Thoughts

Ginny's wishes to become a famous recording artist has come true.  But it seems to be happening so fast with no one to share it with or to even get advice from.  Danny had invited her out to celebrate and  one surprise was a contract he is wanting her to sign but she just does not feel right about something.  As camera flashes were going off Danny gives her a gorgeous diamond necklace.  What kind of commitment was he expecting from her?   She tells him she needs time to think, maybe take a few days off.

When Ginny gets home the only thing she can think of is she needs to speak with her ex-fiance Brett Miller.
She makes flight arrangement to Glacier Bay, Alaska.  But will Brett even want to talk to her after the way she just left him hanging with her ring in his hand to follow her star to fame?

Ginny arrives in Alaskan and  it was breathtakingly beautiful.  She is planning to stay at the Lodge but when she stopped off to meet Brett's grandmother Ethel in order to find out how to get in touch with Brett his grandmother insisted Ginny stay with her until Brett came home.  Ginny felt right at home with Ethel, she was such a sweet woman.  Ginny discover a box of letters from long ago and  Ethel encouraged her to read them.  The letters were an eye opener for Ginny.  Not just as to the history of the letters but of the trials and tribulations of a missionary by the name of Clay.  The letters had a healing affect on her, opening her heart to what God has planned for her in this place.

The authors came together and wrote a story of reconciliation not just with a loved one but with oneself and God.  I loved Ethel and could feel her heart breaking physically and emotionally.  Then there was the comparison between Ellie and Ginny I found most intriguing.  Brett and Clay two men each in a different time still healing from a lose yet yearning to love and with a reluctance to accept a special gift from God for fear of lose again. 

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

Disclosure:  I received a free copy of this book from Summerside Press/Litfuse Publicity Group for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  It is my honest opinion.
