Editorial Reviews

Review

"Snow Angel is Jamie Carie's debut novel, but it doesn't read like one. The story starts with an intense scene and never lets up in excitement. Ms. Carie's vivid descriptions of the Alaskan wilderness and the rugged trail to the gold fields will have you believing you are there. Dancing Word Reviews


"The pacing was good; the author's language was lush and her descriptions and use of adjectives were stunning; Carie's style is introspective and she has a keen ear for good dialog. Snow Angel is a pleasure to read." The Celebrity Cafe



There is romance, mystery and vivid descriptions of the Alaskan gold fields in this gratifying debut novel. Carie is a welcome new voice in the inspirtational fiction market. Four Stars Romantic Times BOOK Reviews.


"...author Jamie Carie evokes a strong sense of time and place with her poetic writing style and discriminating use of historical details. The romantic tension...is both powerful and convincing." TCM Reviews

More About the Author

Revealing secrets of the Kingdom, one story at a time . . .

Born and raised in Vincennes, Indiana, Jamie is a preacher's daughter. Road trips with her dad--to and from Bible studies across Indiana--were filled with talks of things beyond earth's bounds - creation and the fall, God and Jesus and the rapture, the earthly walk compared to the spiritual walk, and how we are born for more than what we can see or touch.
The highlight of those nights was stopping at a truck stop in the middle of the night where her dad would spend a little of the offering basket on two slices of pie and a couple of Cokes. Nothing ever felt so special as a middle of the night slice of pie with her dad. And nothing could stop the writing pouring out of her.

Poems, short stories, skits and song lyrics later, Jamie grew up and married. When her eldest son turned five she decided to try her hand at novels. Snow Angel was released by B&H Publishing Group in September 2007 and won the USA Book News "Best Books 2007" Awards winner, and 2008 RITA Awards® Best First Book finalist. It was the beginning of her dream career. Jamie has since written several books to great acclaim. Her first novella, a Christmas novella, The Snowflake, is scheduled to release October 2010.

Jamie and Tony have been married for twenty-two years and live in Indianapolis, Indiana with their three sons and a giant of a dog named Leo.

If she could only say one thing to her readers it would be, "Live the dreams God has destined you for!"

I accidentally ran into this one here at Amazon and read the blurb. Based on that, the cover and the fact this was from B&H's newer fiction line, I had to bite. I'm glad I did.

Jamie took some risks with this story. At times, it reads more like a secular romance novel. To some, she may have crossed a few lines in regards to passion and one specific scene of violence. Yet, the story is so compelling you are involved before you can resist. I liked the setting of this story, which she realistically painted with her words. Her characters were well-drawn and her plot pacing kept me turning pages. I highly recommend this award winner, though it's not for everyone. If you enjoy edgy Christian fiction, this one's for you. Jamie is a fresh voice in Christian fiction whose original prose will delight readers.

Elizabeth Smith doesn't know where she has come from but her future goals are clear ~ she just didn't count on a storm interfering with those plans.

Noah Wesley loves the solitary wilderness that is his Alaskan home but when God calls him to open his front door during a fearsome blizzard, the unconscious woman lying at his feet unlocks a chamber in his heart previously undiscovered.

While drawn to each other during Elizabeth's recovery, Noah knows he can't compete with her yearning to stake a claim in the Yukon gold fields. Noah fears for Elizabeth's safety as she pursues a perilous course but it is a more evil threat from her past that may haunt them forever.

Snow Angel captured my imagination from beginning to end. It is an epic romance with fast paced intrigue and an emotional intensity rarely achieved. Jamie Carie's gifted characterisation is of a calibre expected from a multi-published author not one writing her debut novel. Noah and Elizabeth have enormous depth, with appealing attributes alongside tangible weaknesses that evoke an emotional and compassionate response. Jamie does not shy away from portraying genuine romantic tension and desire and the dilemma that poses for Noah, a man of faith and integrity experiencing passion and attraction.

Jamie's prose is elegant yet accessible, placing the reader amongst the icy shards of the blizzard and the muck and deprivation of the gold fields. Faith and belief is interwoven seamlessly, gently revealing the loving heart of God amidst the heartache of loss and loneliness. Prepare to be swept away by this powerful tale of love and sacrifice and become a devoted reader of anything Jamie Carie pens in the future.

Format: Paperback
Based in the late 1800's, Snow Angel is about a young girl named Elizabeth who was given away by her birth mother as an infant. She went through a couple of orphanages and then ended up being adopted by a very horrible set of parents. When the Alaska gold rush came around and Elizabeth had a chance to escape her horrible adopted parents she took it! She was then followed by a man who was paid by her adopted parents to find her, she had to continually be on the run, never trusting anyone or staying one place. Somehow she ended up on the porch of a man named Noah. Noah took an interest in her but could not get through to her tormented soul. Can Elizabeth stay safe from the man who hunts her and wants to destroy her life and can Noah convince her that he loves her and can keep her safe. Can both Noah and Elizabeth follow the voice and direction of God?!

Jamie Carie did a great job with developing characters that you just connected with right from the start. Even from the beginning you wanted to continue reading as fast as you could to see what was going to happen to poor Elizabeth. I really enjoyed this story because it encourages those that have struggled with broken families, hurt relationships and bad experiences that you can overcome those situations and learn to love again! It's very inspirational and encouraging!

Format: Paperback
A romance with atouch of mystery set in the gold rush in Alaska, this book promises to be a comfortable winter and Christmas read. There is beautiful and ambitious Elizabeth, running from the secrets and the pain of the past to a slender hope of a wealthy future. There is Noah, a God fearing man who rescues from a blizzard and falls in love with her. And there is Ross, a ruthless guy with an agenda of his own.
The plot was rather promising and the cover beautiful and I was looking forward to enjoying this book.
However it proved to be really slow and after the first chapter things hardly moved at all. The plot was barely existent and it seemed like more emphasis was given to the character's inner thoughts than their actions.
Quickly, the book became mainly about forgiveness, which is a theme I am much interested in and the romance was centered around that, which I liked very much.
However, there was a huge problem with this book, and that is that God is essentially absent. People say "thank God" and "God help me" every now and then, but that's about it. The hero is a believer, the heroine is not and this doesn't seem to change by the end of the book. I was really disappointed by this, as I expected the really strong forgiveness theme to be backed up by Scripture and the belief in Jesus.
The writing is not so good, but that wasn't a major problem. This is after all the debut novel of the author.

Rating: 2/5
