My review Love Finds You in Glacier Bay Alaska


About Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska

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 Thoughts:
As Ginny rushes out to find her fame and fortune, Brett heads back home to Glacier Bay Alaska to see out God and his direction for Brett's life. What started as a Christian relationship between the two of them was torn by the love of the world. I loved how Brett resonated his Christian walk in the way he helped neighbors, was mesmerized by God's creation, and prayed for those around him, even Ginny after all of the hurt she caused him. 
Brett's Grandma is a loving Christian woman and as she presents the letters to Ginny to read, she prayerfully wishes that Ginny will see the love she has found in Brett. I love how the past and the future mesh with one another as the rich history of the town is brought out in the letters and the development of a historical society. 
We are kept wondering who Ellie and Clay are, and if they were married in the end. It is 2 stories in one and it was super easy to go between the two, they flowed wonderfully.
This was a beautifully written story, with the words helping to visualize the beauty of Alaska. I have been there and I know how difficult it is to explain the immense beauty. I think the authors did a fantastic job in describing Alaska and also the hearts of Ginny and Brett.
