To get the new year started, how about a giveaway? This giveaway, though, is unique. You'll get a chance to enter to win a copy of the book for yourself next week. This week, I want you to enter a friend to win. I'll have more information at the end of the post, so read on...
I've been lucky enough to be a part of Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss' launch team for their newest book called Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska.
One of the major perks of being a part of this team was that I got to read the book before it even released in stores. Here's a little bit about the book from the publisher:
Love Finds You In Glacier Bay, Alaska:
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?
What I Thought About the Book:
Most of the books I read are non-fiction. Not because I don't love fiction, mind you, but because I have two little children who tend to get somewhat ignored when I'm deep into a great fiction novel. This novel, thankfully, I read over the weekend when my husband was home. He was able to take care of the kids so I could find out what happened with Ginny and Brett!
I loved this book and would probably have read it in one sitting if not for my need for a couple of hours of sleep. The two story lines within the book (Ginny and Brett and Clay and Ellie) kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book. One thing about this book you should know: it's not just a simple love story. It's so much more than that.
It's a story of faith and healing. Of forgiveness and trust. Of doubt and pain. It delves into some pretty serious issues and helps the reader come to grips with how God can be present even when he seems most absent.
This book is for everyone. For the person who loves a good story. For the woman who is heart-broken from her past. From the broken teenage girl wondering why God is not answering her prayers. It's a great book, and I'm thrilled to be part of a really fun "Pay it Forward Giveaway" today!
