Love Finds You in Glacier Bay Alaska – Book Review

Love Finds You in Glacier Bay Alaska

Are you familiar with the Love Finds You book series?  Featuring light-hearted romance set in towns with unusual names, these books are a inspirational and quick read.  I love each one that I have read – and I have read a lot of them!  I am grateful to have been given another opportunity to review the latest book in the Love Finds You series – Love Finds You in Glacier Bay Alaska.  I will get to my thoughts on the book in a bit, but first here is a summary of the book and some information about the authors.

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 on Love Finds You in Glacier Bay Alaska:

Ginny’s struggles throughout the book really struck a cord with me.  No, I am not famous, but I think the point is that we all struggle with God’s plan for our lives.  We all second guess ourselves and wonder if the path we are taking is the right one.  If we are open to God’s gentle nudges though, we will end up where we are supposed to be.  We see that with Ginny, time and time again in the book.

One of my favorite parts of this book was the story within a story.  The tale of Ellie and Clay, as told through a box of old letters, had me just as enthralled as the romance developing between Ginny and Brett in modern day. Double the romance!

And of course, I have to mention the setting.  I don’t think the Goyer and Fleiss could have picked a better backdrop for this story.  You can tell that the authors really took the time to really  get to know the town and its history before they set down to write this book.  I totally want to visit  Glacier Bay, Alaska now.  Truth be told, if it weren’t for the long winters, I would totally want to move to Glacier Bay, Alaska.  The small close-knit community and reliance on your neighbors as described in this story completely appeals to me.  I think that it says something about a writer’s skill when they can make you completely fall in love with a place you have never been.  I bet if you read this book, you will fall in love with Glacier Bay, Alaska too!

If you are a fan of Christian romance, contemporary or historical – as this story has a bit of both, I highly recommend Love Finds You in Glacier Bay Alaska.  I read a lot of Christian fiction books and truth be told, I don’t hang on to most of them.  However, Love Finds You in Glacier Bay Alaska has earned a place on my bookshelf.  I know I will want read this inspiring story again.
