Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska
Tricia Goyer
Ocieanna Fleiss

This book intertwines a wonderful historical romance with a contemporary love story that leaves the reader with a sense of wonder about how generations can reach across the years to touch lives. The wonderful team of Goyer and Fleiss has again created a story that takes you directly into the lives and struggles of another place and time (their first book was Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington).

Through intense research and an actual visit to this fabulous setting, the reader can sense the majesty of the landscape and feel the cold bite of the wind. The local characters are based on real life residents of the town who obviously add quite a bit of color to the community.

LFY in Glacier Bay, Alaska is a delightful book with deep messages about forgiveness and trust. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes either historical or contemporary love stories.

You can order it here:

Over the next  week I will add interviews with the main characters of the book to my blog. At the end of this series, anyone who has left a comment will be entered in a drawing for a wonderful Glacier Bay prize pack. This includes a copy of Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska, a beautiful stationary set for writing your own historical-to-be letters, an antique tea cup, and some wonderful flavored tea. And maybe a few other things I might decide to throw in as we go along!

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 fiancĂ©, 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?
