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

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.

I read it 10 yrs ago in hardcover and loaned it and never saw it again....I bought it for my kindle....I just had to re-read it. A very good book and for those who care to know......there is NO graphic sex in this book. Just a pure wholesome good love story about a girl from an orphanage who is on the run from cruel adoptive parents and looking for something she yearns for.....and has gold rush fever. A very strong image of a young woman who is a survivor. You won't regret purchasing this book for your kindle or other.....

An interesting story was spoiled for me by the inaccuracies of the setting. My family has its roots in Alaska from 1917. I lived 10 years in Juneau, where the story begins, and have visited many times since. It was obvious to me that the author had never been there. Many inaccurate details could have been corrected with a simple Google search. For example: A ranch on Mt. Juneau? No way. Even a photo would show that the mountain is way too steep and rugged for the situations described in the book. And Juneau has its Taku Winds, not williwaws. An author of historical fiction needs to get the setting right.

Truly, I've never read a bad--or even a mediocre--book by Jamie Carie. Purchased as a Christmas read, it had nothing to do with Christmas. However, was a very good book. The gold rush in Alaska has never been part of my historical interest, but I discovered some very interesting things about that era. Prospecting for gold in Alaska was an absolutely perilous, ultra-rigorous venture, and the author chronicles it well. The story line of a mistreated orphan who grows up in an atmosphere of "gold fever," and a godly Alaskan young man who discovers this "snow angel" half frozen on the porch of his cabin is one worthy of your time. What a great, entertaining way to learn history! Jamie Carie's research is fantastic, and she is a gifted storyteller and author.

Format: Paperback
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!
