Publisher's Description

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 fiance, 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?

    Ginny is a singer on the brink signing a contract with a major recording label, but now in light of all the chaos around her she goes home to Glacier Bay to seek the advice and companionship of her best friend and ex-fiance, Brett.

    Brett's grandmother gives Ginny a collection of old letters to read that tell a timeless tale of love overcoming hardship.

    This was an enjoyable read, and I really liked following the two stories and seeing how the old stories had an effect on Ginny. I liked the interactions between the characters, and how Ginny healed through her relationship with God and with her friends. I really liked the old-time story, and how it really added to the one set in present day. One of my favorite characters was Ellie's grandfather, his faith and sense of contentment was inspiring.

    Overall, this was a well written book and I really got the feel for the two stories and thought they went well together. It's a hard book to describe because it isn't a story that goes in a straight line, but the heart is there. Ginny didn't deal with things the way that she should have, but it made her human I could see that sometimes when she pushed people away it was her way of crying for help. A surprising satisfying read :)

    I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.

    When the copy of Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska arrived, the snow was flurrying and ice was forming outside my door - unusual but not impossible for Texas. At my age, I can easily feel the cold in my bones and curled up in my cozy chair with a favorite throw and somewhat dreaded reading about Alaska with such cold weather about.

    Soon, my chill lessened as the words of Trish Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss warmed my heart with the blessings of how they joined together to write a sweet lovable story of a modern day successful popular singer Ginny Marshall who still yearned for her lost love and decided to leave her responsibilities behind in Hollywood temporarily to find ex-fiancé Brett Miller who had returned to his home in Glacier Bay, Alaska.

    Ginny was not prepared for what she would find, and could she_would she allow these things to change her life forever or return to her singing career. Everything was completely different and opposite of what she knew as life and she was faced with not understanding what she was learning. Ginny found that Brett was away in the wild beautiful mysterious Alaskan country with no way of contacting him. Surprisingly, Brett's Grandma Ethel knew who Ginny was immediately and insisted she stay with her. Soon, we are immersed in two periods of time when Grandma Ethel's wise sense of discernment gave Ginny a box of letters from the 1920's that told the story of Ellie who had traveled to Alaska upon her own broken engagement to become the governess to missionary Clay's children upon the death of his young wife. From here our story becomes much deeper in emotion, hardship, and endearing information on history of this charming but untamed part of Alaska and the people brave and determined to settle this area as their home

    .

    The authors blended together the two ongoing stories with skill and Biblical truths that kept the story's strength alive in this reader's imagination. The descriptions of Alaskan scenery made it very visible in my mind and awed me. Being a history buff, I admit shear admiration and fascination for the research that was essential to the story.

    Two love stories_..Ginny and Brett, Ellie and Clay - both very parallel, but unalike with the exception one couple learning to love; while the other attempted to find their love again. This story is about love. All the kinds of love God has created and told so well by the writers Trish and Ocieanna. My chill of the weather outside was soon forgotten through the warmth and heart rendering stories of these characters, their community, and their history. The authors added clever wit and humor throughout that made it such a joy to read and I wholeheartedly recommend it to you_.see how God can work all things together for good.

    Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss in thier new book, "Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska" published by Summerside Press takes us to Glacier Bay, Alaska and into the life of Ginny Marshall.

    From the back cover: Love finds you

    Sometimes the love we've always wanted is the one we've always had.

    Singer Ginny Marshall is one signature away from a major recording contract--a dream come true for a girl still struggling to bury the memories of the past. Wanting to talk to someone with her best interests in mind, she looks up her former fiancé, Brett Miller in Glacier Bay, Alaska. There, the stunning scenery provides a respite from LA's pressures, and Ginny finds community among the charming residents.

    She also discovers a box of old letters and is swept up in the tale of Clay, an early missionary to Alaska, and Ellie, the woman who traveled there to be his children's governess. As their story unfolds, Ginny just might discover that healing and love are sometimes found in the most unexpected places.

    I have yet to visit Alaska but this book makes me want to remedy that situation soon. Glacier Bay seems like a really nice place to hang out in with the people to meet and the places to see. "Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska" is written by two authors so we are treated to two stories that dovetail together. And both of them are romances. It just doesn't get any neater than that. "Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska" is great fun to read. Ms. Goyer and Fleiss have a great way of telling the story and moving it along at a nice pace. Their characters are wonderful and they give them life and unique voices. All this and Glacier Bay, Alaska also. A really enjoyable read.

    Ginny's wishes to become a famous recording artist has come true. But it seems to be happening so fast with no one to share it with or to even get advice from. Danny had invited her out to celebrate and one surprise was a contract he is wanting her to sign but she just does not feel right about something. As camera flashes were going off Danny gives her a gorgeous diamond necklace. What kind of commitment was he expecting from her? She tells him she needs time to think, maybe take a few days off.

    When Ginny gets home the only thing she can think of is she needs to speak with her ex-fiance Brett Miller.

    She makes flight arrangement to Glacier Bay, Alaska. But will Brett even want to talk to her after the way she just left him hanging with her ring in his hand to follow her star to fame?

    Ginny arrives in Alaskan and it was breathtakingly beautiful. She is planning to stay at the Lodge but when she stopped off to meet Brett's grandmother Ethel in order to find out how to get in touch with Brett his grandmother insisted Ginny stay with her until Brett came home. Ginny felt right at home with Ethel, she was such a sweet woman. Ginny discover a box of letters from long ago and Ethel encouraged her to read them. The letters were an eye opener for Ginny. Not just as to the history of the letters but of the trials and tribulations of a missionary by the name of Clay. The letters had a healing affect on her, opening her heart to what God has planned for her in this place.

    The authors came together and wrote a story of reconciliation not just with a loved one but with oneself and God. I loved Ethel and could feel her heart breaking physically and emotionally. Then there was the comparison between Ellie and Ginny I found most intriguing. Brett and Clay two men each in a different time still healing from a lose yet yearning to love and with a reluctance to accept a special gift from God for fear of lose again.

    I highly recommend this book.

    Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from Summerside Press/Litfuse Publicity Group for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. It is my honest opinion.

    Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska, is a heartwarming story of love . . . and more! Romance is very much a part of the tale, but another big draw for me was observing Ginny and Ellie grow and discover more about themselves. The descriptions of the surroundings made me feel like I was visiting Glacier Bay -- and made me wish I could go there.

    Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss did a tremendous job of weaving together the two women's stories. As I understand it, Tricia wrote the contemporary part of the story and Ocieanna the historical part. The life paths their two main characters took were so very similar, even though Ginny and Ellie lived decades apart. There are a few fun surprises along that way that tie Ginny and Ellie closer together that was apparent at the beginning.

    For a fun, touching read, settle in to your comfy reading spot for an enjoyable journey to Glacier Bay, Alaska. I think you'll enjoy your trip.

    Thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
