Book Review - Love Find You In Glacier Bay, Alaska

ABOUT THE BOOK:

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 REVIEW: 

Ginny is an up and coming singer with a tragic past that keeps her from moving forward.  We know that she was in foster care and that she finally found her forever home when both her foster parents die.  The book opens with her flying to Glacier Bay, Alaska to see her former fiancĂ©, Brett. She has some major decisions coming up in her life and she feels the need to fly into Alaska to talk to the one person she knows she can trust and who cares about her.

This story was very interesting because there is two stories woven throughout the book. The one story is about Ginny and Brett and then we have the stories in the letters that Grandma shares with Ginny. The letters are from the 1920’s and follow the story of a young woman who goes to Alaska to help a widower after her own family falls on hard times. 

There is a lot of sweet romance in both stories and the faith of Brett is a wonderful. We find Ginny searching for her own faith again and it’s wonderful to see how those around her influence her in her search. I liked how Brett didn't give up on her, even though his heart could be crushed again. Her struggle with how she should live her life was very realistic, too, and you can imagine yourself feeling the same feelings and doing the same sorts of things.

I loved the descriptions of Alaska and, as Ginny reads the letters, the descriptions of how they lived in the 1920’s. You could just imagine the scenery as the authors described everything beautifully!
It was a beautiful story, wonderfully told, and I really enjoyed it. I highly recommend it!
