Along with Ginny's adventure, Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss also weave in a story told through letters from long ago which are filled with characters who will steal your heart in a matter of seconds. The letters are a major part of the plot and without them the book would lose part of its charm. In fact, I would really enjoy a book based on the characters from the letters! When you read this book please take my advice and have a box of tissues ready along with ample time to devour each page. As you travel through Glacier Bay your attention to everyday mundane chores such as cleaning may be limited due to the fact that one simply cannot put this book down. I say travel because you really will be transported to Alaska through the pages of this truly heartwarming story minus the long underwear or as they say in my neck of the woods long johns. Happy Reading!
I am a member of Tricia Goyer's 2013 Launch Team and was given a copy of this book for review purposes.
The characters were really nice and I especially like Brett, Brett's Grandmother, and Ginny. I loved the setting and how small the town of Glacier Bay was.
I also loved the "letters" that were in Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska - they were one of my favorite parts of the story. I found it interesting to read Ellie's story firsthand. =)
Overall, Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska was a great read and I recommend it if you enjoy good, sweet romance stories.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
Later in the story, both Ginny and Brett put aside their own wants to make their love a priority. Their love story is mirrored by the love story in the old letters that Brett’s Grandma Ethel pushes Ginny to read. I often seem to like stories set in the past better than contemporary ones; this book is no exception. Luckily, there are two stories in this one book. Clay’s reflective journal entries about his first wife show the grief and love he feels for his wife. Ellie Bell and Clay’s early 1900s romance in the Alaskan wilderness is so sweet and funny; reading about her attempts at cooking, shooting…and the outhouse falling in the river – it’s great!
This is also a story with amazing secondary characters: Ginny’s grandfather, Brett’s grandmother, the gossipy Dove, Janey…and who wouldn’t love the interjections by Nurse Schroeder? I haven’t been to Alaska; but after reading this book, I hope that I can visit there one day. A friend who went there was not too impressed by it, but the authors’ descriptions make the wild scenery sound like God’s country.

In modern day times, singer Ginny Marshall flies to Alaska while struggling with tough romantic and career choices. She leaves her current boyfriend behind to seek advice from the one person she trusts most in the world, her former fiance, Brett Miller. Then the story shifts to 1928, when heartbroken Ellie McKinley seeks refuge in Alaska from a broken engagement. As governess for the children of grieving missionary Clay Parrish, Ellie learns life lessons that she shares in letters. Her letters profoundly affect Ginny and add depth to this sweetly romantic story.
Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska tells the story of two women who run to Alaska when their lives are in crisis. There, God meets them with healing, hope, and love.
This novel is a great read for teens on up! ***Thanks to the authors for providing a copy for me to review.
