Book Review~Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska

A few days ago, I wrote this blog post explaining that I'm on Tricia Goyer's 2013 Launch Team, with a sneak peak of her new book.  Well, today is the day!  Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska comes out today, January 1st.  I'm a big fan of the authors, and I've always been fascinated by Alaska, so I was excited to read this book! And let me tell you, it was incredible!!

The story starts out introducing singer Ginny Marshall, who is rising in stardom in LA and in a relationship with a music producer.  Her heart still aches for former boyfriend Brett Miller, who wanted to marry her and now lives in Glacier Bay.  A lifetime of loss has kept Ginny from making commitments, and she finds herself on a plane to Alaska, wanting to get Brett's advice about her upcoming recording contract and escape her high pressure life.  When she arrives, Brett is on a kayaking trip, and Ginny ends up staying with his Grandmother.  Grandmother Ethel shares a box of old letters with Ginny, which turn out to be the story of Clay, an early Alaskan missionary, and his children's governess, Ellie. Ginny gets deeply into the letters, which tell of an amazing story of love and healing in the wilderness of Alaska.

I loved this book.  I couldn't put it down.  It was like I was reading two stories in one-the historical story of Glacier Bay with Clay and Ellie, and the contemporary story with Ginny and Brett.  I felt like I was there with the characters-like they were part of my family, and the authors did a beautiful job of painting the scenery of Glacier Bay with words.  I learned so much about this area of Alaska, and now I want to go there even more than before (and I really  have wanted to go)!  I highly suggest reading Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska-it will make you laugh, and it will make you cry!

To learn more about the authors, here are links to their websites:
