    Historical romance makes sweet holiday novella

    The Snowflake by Jamie Carie is a short novella perfect for the Christmas season. Ellen Pierce has spent most of her life caring for her brother Jonah, trying to protect him from the world while keeping herself safe from him. His obsession with her has kept them moving often to keep her away from any man who may be attracted to her, but there's nowhere to run from Buck Lewis when they are all on a ship trapped in the ice on the way to Alaska. Buck leads a group through the icy winter snows to Dawson City where he can continue tracking his wife's killers. The journey through the snow will take the lives of more than one of the travelers, but it will bring Buck and Ellen together as the two lonely souls find solace in each other. But Buck's desire for revenge pulls him away from her, leaving Ellen to make her own way in a strange town. Will he return in time to fulfill his promise to come back to her for Christmas? Carie is a talented writer of historical romances and while this plot may seem at first glance a bit of fluff, there is great depth in Ellen's guilt over Jonah, the demons that haunt him, and Kate's history. I hope that Carie gives Kate and Lucky a book of their own. This quick read is perfect for the busy holiday season and with a message of God's love for everyone, even lonely exiles.

    more from this reviewer

    A Glimmer of Hope Can Lift Your Soul.

    Surrounded by unimaginable, mind numbing cold, nigh frozen to death, a glimmer of hope can lift your soul.

    Fear and love are the greatest motivational forces. Jamie has woven these into "The Snowflake" with vivid and clear detail. It is easy to visualize and feel the outward and inward struggles as the harshness of the Alaskan wilderness bears down.

    The story line is familiar, but Jamie's twists and turns add depth, imagination and strength of will.

    Great "Fireplace Reading".
