About this book!

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 this Book

It had been two years since Ginny had walked away from Brett’s love and a life with him, but she didn’t realize what she really did until her trip to Alaska to ask Brett’s advice on a recording contract. He was to one she really trusted enough to talk to about it. But why was she really there? Was Brett’s grandmother Ethel right that maybe God sent her there?

 

Wow I love, love this wonderfully written story by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss! Ginny’s trip back to Glacier Bay and her journey through the letters Grandma Ethel wanted her to read turned out to be one of the most beautiful and tender stories I have ever read. And I loved Grandma Ethel. She surely lived a loved and blessed life, even though it was simple and she didn’t have a lot of material things. She really knew what was really important in life. And she wanted to make sure Ginny found that out too. But it wasn’t always easy. And I appreciate how the authors show how important it is to make sure we are doing what God wants us to do in our everyday lives.

 

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good, clean Christian story. You will truly be happy with this one. A copy of this book was provided by Litfuse. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.

Ocieanna Fleiss’s passion for writing grew out of two seeds. The first was when her third grade teacher instructed her to read a story she wrote in front of class. As the characters lost their pants, revealing all sorts of goofy underwear, the kids howled with laughter. (What greater comedic height is there for a third grader?) Ocieanna craved more.

The second seed was planted when, as an adult, Ocieanna read The Robe by Lloyd C. Douglas. This book actually challenged her to grow as a person and Christian. Other books have made similar impact, and Ocieanna decided to try her hand at harnessing the power of story to share the healing and life-giving power of the gospel–faith alone, grace alone, Christ alone.

Ocieanna hopes her first book, Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana, combines her passion for fun with her compassionate heart.
