Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska Blog Tour

Welcome to the blog tour for Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss!

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?

Ginny is on the verge of having her dreams come true. Her producer is offering her the chance to sign the deal of a lifetime. Ginny can't quite forget her old fiance though and decides he will have the best advice for her. So Ginny is off to Alaska to see Brett. When she gets there Brett is out communing with nature, so Ginny gets to know the town without him. She soon is taking care of Brett's grandmother. Brett's grandmother gives her some letters to read about Ellie, another woman who felt out of place in Alaska. Ginny and Ellie's stories parallel each others in some ways, and Ginny and Ellie both will have to decide if there are reasons to stay in Alaska.

This book is actually two stories in one. The first is Ginny's story, and the second is Ellie's. Ginny is interesting. She basically has to decide what her priorities are going to be. This can be very hard to figure out. For one thing, Ginny has had a horribly difficult life. Singing is her dream, so a big recording deal is a gateway to everything she ever wanted. However, she sees another way of life in Alaska. The community is so close-knit there. I think this is something that really draws Ginny in. Having spent much of her life in foster care, Ginny really longs for a family. This longing has shaped a lot of her life. Ellie's story is equally interesting. Sent to Alaska to nanny the children of a widower, Ellie finds that life in Alaska is much more difficult that she could have ever imagined. She too though must prioritize what is important in her life. 

I enjoyed this book. The descriptions of Alaska are really able to draw you in. You feel for Ginny. Although she seems to have everything she wanted right at the tip of her fingers, you just want her to choose everything for the right reasons. I found Ellie's story interesting as well, and there is a thread to wrap the two stories together that I didn't see coming. This book will whisk you away to Alaska and make you want to get the priorities in your life straight.
