Book review and giveaway info: Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska

About the 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
The media often portrays stars, both those on the screen and those in the music industry, as lost souls who struggle from deep personal struggles. In Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska, Ginny, a  rising star in the music industry, shows us what could happen when one of those stars learns to deal with those deep struggles in a way that does not involve sex, drugs, or alcohol. She discovers a simpler life, true love, and a relationship with God. It was easy for me to sit back and wonder why she struggled so much with the issues she faces, but I quickly remembered that everyone is different.  We all come from different places in our lives and while some experiences are similar, often each of experience our lives in vastly different ways.  I enjoyed reading the story of Ginny, along with the love story that she was reading as well.  I also really enjoyed the Alaskan setting and the way the authors described it.  I was never one who wanted to travel to Alaska, but after reading a couple of books set there, I have added it to my bucket list.

I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good love story, especially one that revolves around second chances and to anyone who enjoys stories set in Alaska, as you will really get a feeling for what it is like to be there.
