Publisher's Description

When Noah Wesley heard the faint sound outside the door of his remote Alaskan mountain cabin during a violent nighttime blizzard, it was no less than the voice of God that urged him to take a closer look, soon to discover his snow angel.

Unconscious and more than half frozen to death, her name, as Noah would later learn after boldly saving her life, was Elizabeth, a beautiful young woman, fragile yet fierce, and intent on discovering gold like so many others in that region during the late 1800s.

But why Elizabeth was so drawn to the gold, and why she would chase it even through a pounding storm that no man would dare face, was a secret to be shared with no one else, not even at the inviation of Noah's deep blue trusting eyes.

First time novelist Jamie Carie pens a can't-put-down debut in Snow Angel, a masterfully romantic story wherein cold and lonely hearts risk everything to be forever warmed.


"Carie is a welcome new voice in the inspirational fiction market."--Romantic Times

"A truly engaging story . . . fascinating."

"The romantic tension is both powerful and convincing."--TCM Reviews

Dancing Word

When Noah Wesley hears a sound at his door, deep in the wilds of Alaska, he thinks it’s just the wind from the raging blizzard. But when God prompts him to open the door, Noah is shocked to find a half-frozen woman. It’s touch and go at first, but Elizabeth survives. When she tells Noah that she wants to hire him to guide her to the gold fields, Noah doesn’t know what to believe. A woman has no business trekking hundreds of miles in the rough Alaskan wilderness, especially one who was near death so recently.
Elizabeth Dunning is determined to find gold and strike it rich. She’s known poverty and back-breaking work her whole life, and she needs the gold to make life better for herself. If Noah won’t take her, she’ll find someone else who will.
When Noah discovers that Elizabeth has left for the gold fields, he knows he must go after her. She has no clue the danger she’s in. Noah has realized that he loves Elizabeth, and he can’t risk losing her. But with a rough man from her past on Elizabeth’s trail, can Noah find her in time? Will Elizabeth stay alive long enough for him to save her?
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. Elizabeth is determined, if not sometimes foolish, in her quest to get gold and doesn’t mind risking her life to achieve her goal. Noah is a great hero. He’s a gentle, kind man of God, but is thrown for a loop when feisty Elizabeth storms in and quickly steals his heart. Ms. Carie’s vivid descriptions of the Alaskan wilderness and the rugged trail to the gold fields will have you believing you are there.
SNOW ANGEL is a truly engaging story, but there are several scenes that some inspirational readers may find offensive. While Noah is a Christian and relies on the Lord, the spiritual theme found in most Christian fiction novels is less obvious in SNOW ANGEL. There are brief scenes of Elizabeth’s mother before her daughter was ripped from her arms in the prologue and letters from the detective she hired to find Elizabeth that run throughout the story as a subplot and add intrigue as the detective finally draws close to his prey. Elizabeth believes that nobody can ever love her, yet Noah is determined to prove that God’s love and his own defy all odds. SNOW ANGEL is the fascinating tale of a single-minded young woman who will stop at nothing to achieve her goal, even if it means giving up the only man who has ever loved her.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Jamie Carie
Submitted: July 29, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Born and raised in Vincennes, Indiana, Jamie is a preacher's daughter. Road trips with her dad—to and from Bible studies across Indiana—were filled with talks of things beyond earth’s bounds - creation and the fall, God and Jesus and the rapture, the earthly walk compared to the spiritual walk, and how we are born for more than what we can see or touch. The highlight of those nights was stopping at a truck stop in the middle of the night where her dad would spend a little of the offering basket on two slices of pie and a couple of Cokes. Nothing ever felt so special as a middle of the night slice of pie with her dad. And nothing could stop the writing pouring out of her.

Poems, short stories, skits and song lyrics later, Jamie grew up and married. When her eldest son turned five she decided to try her hand at novels. Snow Angel was released by B&H Publishing Group in September 2007 and won the USA Book News “Best Books 2007” Awards winner, and 2008 RITA Awards® Best First Book finalist. It was the beginning of her dream career. Jamie has since written several books to great acclaim. Her first novella, a Christmas novella, The Snowflake, is scheduled to release October 2010. Jamie and Tony have been married for twenty-two years and live in Indianapolis, Indiana with their three sons and a giant of a dog named Leo. If she could only say one thing to her readers it would be, "Live the dreams God has destined you for!"

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I had been reading romance novels for years when I felt the Lord’s desire for me to loosen my grip. I tried reading Christian romance novels, but couldn't find the kind of story I longed to read, so I decided to write a story of my own. Snow Angel was born on a frosty night in an old farmhouse in Fishers, Indiana, where the cold, wood floorboards gave plenty of motivation for the snow scene. I’ve always had a romanticized view of Alaska and I wanted to explore that. The research was in-depth and phenomenal, giving me more plot than I knew what to do with. Then, I just fell in love with these characters. I couldn’t wait to see what they would do next and how their story was going to turn out.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  "And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God." (Eph. 3:17b-19, NIV) I believe in the power of fiction. Love stories are over done, but that’s only because they are so needed, so grasped at. Elizabeth’s story is the story of the church, a flawed and fallen bride; Noah represents the savior. It’s so simple . . . and yet we seem to need to hear it again and again. It never loses its power. It’s our redemption story, the story of the cross.
