Love Finds You in Glacier Bay


Book Review

Love Finds You in Glacier Bay by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss is a parallel love story of contemporary Ginny Marshall and Ellie a young woman living in the 1920’s.

Ginny is a singer/songwriter who is just about to cross over the line to become a top performer with a lucrative recording contract. She is also dating a celebrity music producer. But rather than feeling excited about her prospects, Ginny feels lonely and at loose ends. Her thoughts keep returning to Brett, her former fiancĂ©. Ginny had called the engagement off but on the verge of “making it big” in the music business she finally decides she must see Brett again.

Against the wishes of her producer, Ginny flies up to rural Glacier Bay, Alaska. She stays with Brett’s grandmother who gives her a file box of old letters to read. They tell the story of Ellie, a young woman from California who goes up to Alaska in the earlier 20th century to be a governess for a widowed missionary’s children. Ellie falls in love with the missionary and the letters relate the challenges Ellie faces.

As the two stories unfold, there is an obvious connection between Ginny and Ellie. As Ginny relates to Ellie and enjoys the beautiful wilderness of Glacier Bay she begins to put her painful past behind her and asks God to lead and direct her. She is able to make decisions that free her from the shallowness and insecurities of her life.

I received this book from the publisher in return for a review. All opinions are my own.


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?
