(Affiliate link)


AVAILABLE TO BUY ON JANUARY 1, 2013 or PRE-ORDER TODAY!

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?

    My Review:
    Oh how I love a good story!
    This particular book reminded me of The Notebook, but with a deeper moral compass. It was the letters and going from back-in-time to today, is what reminded me. The stories themselves were so very different, and for me, this was richer in the things I look for in a good book.
    When I read a good Christian book, it has to have challenged my own morals and beliefs. Did I ask myself what I would do in that situation? Did I feel a tug on my heartstrings or did I shout out loud at the book in moments that were sensitive and intense? Did I smile lovingly when others I read about had good moments to smile about too? Yes, yes and yes!!!
    So many reasons to love this book and none to complain about. It was THAT good!
    I also loved the author's personal notes in the back, complete with photos from their journey to Glacier Bay, Alaska. (View the photo slideshow below.)
    I have, am and always will be a fan of these two ladies, and this book just emphasized why.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
