A Book Review: {Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska} by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss

About the Book:

Two romances weave together in one novel. When a woman discovers old letters that reveal a tender love story, she is convinced to reignite her romance with a former flame. 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 When singer Ginny Marshall travels to the isolated town of Glacier Bay, Alaska, she is charmed by the town's colorful characters and stunning scenery. She discovers a box of old letters and is swept up in the love story between an early missionary to Alaska Territory and his accidental mail-order bride. When Ginny's former fiance returns to Glacier Bay, will she discover that the love she always wanted was the one she always had?

My Star Rating:  5 Stars

My Review:

Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss have come together to create a beautiful love story, that warms the heart.  They're both talented authors, who draw the reader in, and immerse you into the small town of Glacier Bay, Alaska.  I know it may sound cliche to say, but I really did feel like I was there, and I could see everything clearly as if I was right there with Ginny, Brett, and Grandma Ethel.  And while the setting was beautiful, the characters were equally enjoyable.  I especially enjoyed Brett's Grandma Ethel.  What a sweet, precious lady; she added so much to the story, and I love how her character imparted so much spiritual wisdom to Ginny.  Truly great stuff!

I found this story to be quite unique, in the fact that there are two stories in one; Ginny's story blends beautifully with Ellie's story through Ginny's reading of the letters that were written in the early part of the 1900's.  Ginny has her own struggles, and through Ellie's letters, she's able to relate and work through some of the issues she's having, and it's wonderful to watch how she (and Ellie) grow in their faith.

I love how everything comes together, and how the authors have perfectly woven two time periods, and two love stories.  With its amazing setting, heartwarming romance, contemporary aspects, historical charm, and a well-written spiritual thread, I recommend this one with two thumbs up!  Definitely a great read!
