Book Blurb:

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 Thoughts:

I fell in love with this book and it's surroundings. The story told through the letters that Ginny read about Clay and Ellie was just precious. Ginny's original reason for going to Glacier Bay was to get advice from Brett about her singing career. She never quite gets to ask him as she is diverted by Brett's, Grandmother who has her read the letters of Ellie and Clay. 

Tricia and Ocieanna have written a wonderful story of love, forgiveness, and true happiness. This is a must read for 2013.

As a member of Tricia's Launch Team for 2013, I have a brand new copy of this book to giveaway. I will also giveaway with it a LFY in Glacier Bay Alaska bookmark and postcard.

The Lesson - Reviewed

Book Blurb:

Sometimes love shows up when you least expect it.
Nineteen-year-old Mary Kate Lapp yearns for adventure, but all she seems to find is trouble. Her dreams of travel have taken a backseat to her assignment to teach school this year. And nothing ever seems to happen in her sleepy Amish community.
But when a sudden and unexplained death conveniently coincides with the arrival of a mysterious young man, M.K. is frustrated that no one takes it seriously. She’s determined to take matters into her own hands and get to the bottom of it. Will she find more than she bargained for?
Centered on one of bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher’s most loved characters, this is the Stoney Ridge story you have been waiting for. With a surprise at every turn, a gentle romance, and a shocking answer to an old family mystery, The Lesson is the dramatic conclusion to the Stoney Ridge Seasons series.

My Thoughts:

I haven't read the other books in the series, but I wasn't lost at all. I loved M.K. she was full of spunk, and her determination even if it was misguided was fun! I was pulled in at the first paragraph and I kept reading until I was done.
Chris and Jenny's story was heartbreaking and the way that it tied into the Lapp family was even more painful.
There were many Lessons in this book. M.K. doesn't want to be the teacher at the school, yet with determination, and creativity she learns how to teach, and finds that she loves it.
The main lesson, was forgiveness and grace. We can't give forgiveness and grace without our Heavenly Father and the characters in this book learn that.
I highly recommend this one! A great read to start off the New Year!
