The Snowflake

The Snowflake by Jamie Carie is a wonderful book that gets me into the holiday spirit. Gosh, I love a good love story, and that is what this story is! I just could not put this book down, and it seemed to end too soon! I want to read more about Buck and Ellen! I have found a new favorite author in Jamie Carie. She writes beautifully and gracefully, and it is a lovely story!

About the Book: Christmas 1897. Ellen Pierce and her brother are determined to reach the Alaska gold rush. But when ice stalls their steamship, all seems lost, until Buck Lewis makes a decision: he'll lead all who dare to follow on foot toward Dawson City. Buck is determined to leave behind a heartbreaking past. No amount of ice or weather will stop him. But he never counted on a woman joining a dangerous wilderness trek - or on falling in love with her. As their journey unfolds and Christmas approaches, Ellen and Buck discover that the greatest gift of all can't be wrapped in paper and tied with a bow. It comes from, and is received in, the heart. Come share in a soul-deep romance that gives a joyful reminder of a redeeming God who makes us each unique, yet loves us all the same.

About the Author: Jamie Carie is the author of Snow Angel, a ForeWord magazine Romance Book of the Year winner, USA Book News National "Best Books 2007" Awards winner, and 2008 RITA Awards Best First Book finalist. She lives with her husband and three children in Indianapolis, Indiana.

  1. Christmas is just a few weeks away, and I am already in the holiday mood - listening to holiday songs, getting out the decorations and preparing the present list. And this book feels like the holidays are already here, and sounds good to read. I'll check the library to see if they have a copy (: Thanks for the recommendation!
