When a book plays out like a movie in my head—even after I’ve closed the cover—I know it’s a keeper. And Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska passes that Wish-It-Were-a-Hallmark-Movie test with flying colors. Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss’s novel contains all the elements that capture my imagination: the stunning physical setting, the beautiful, torn-between-two-beaus heroine, the handsome, good-guy hero, and the feisty-but-wise grandma. Plus, there’s an intriguing story from the past told through a box of old letters.
In modern day times, singer Ginny Marshall flies to Alaska while struggling with tough romantic and career choices. She leaves her current boyfriend behind to seek advice from the one person she trusts most in the world, her former fiance, Brett Miller. Then the story shifts to 1928, when heartbroken Ellie McKinley seeks refuge in Alaska from a broken engagement. As governess for the children of grieving missionary Clay Parrish, Ellie learns life lessons that she shares in letters. Her letters profoundly affect Ginny and add depth to this sweetly romantic story.
Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska tells the story of two women who run to Alaska when their lives are in crisis. There, God meets them with healing, hope, and love.
