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 Ginny needs advice from the one person who will look out for her best interests-her former fiancé, Brett Miller. She travels to the remote town of Glacier Bay, Alaska, where the town's colorful characters and stunning scenery provide respite from LA's pressures.
In Glacier Bay, Ginny discovers a box of old letters and is swept up in the love story between Clay, an early missionary to Alaska Territory, and Ellie, the woman who traveled there to be his children's governess. When Ginny is reunited with Brett in Glacier Bay, will she discover-as Ellie did-that healing and love are sometimes found in the most unexpected places?
My take on this book:
Tricia Goyer is one of my favorite Amish fiction authors so when I realized she had co-authored a Love Finds You book I was totally excited because I have been reading this series for a couple of years and just love them. The thing that I enjoy most about the Love Finds You series is that each book always sweeps the reader to a different locale. With Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska the reader finds themselves swept into a snowstorm in Alaska. We meet Ginny Marshall, who seems to finally be getting what she wants, a top recording studio wants to sign her to a major contract, and she is dating one of People magazines most eligible bachelors, but instead of feeling happy, she just feels like she wants to run away. Brett Miller is the only person she feels like she can trust to talk to, thing is he is in Alaska and she is in LA and more than that he just happens to be her ex- fiancee. Will she find the answers she needs once she makes the trek to Alaska?
This book was a visual treat! The author's descriptive prose really brings the setting of Alaska to life, allowing me to easily picture Alaska in all it's beauty! While the characters in the story were great, and easy to relate too, after all Ginny was dealing with past issues, issues that her new boyfriend new nothing about.I thought the chemistry between Ginny and Brett was great. For me though, it was the story that is revealed thru a box of old letters. The letters transported me back to the 1920's revealing a remarkable love story. Even though the story shifts from past to present, the transition is always smoothly done. If your looking for a very well written story, that blends together a wonderful historical story, while also providing a great contemporary read as well, your not going to be disappointed with this book. A great story line with interesting characters and beautiful scenery made this another great addition to the Love Finds You series!
