Book Description

1 Sep 2007
When Noah Wesley heard the faint sound outside the door of his remote Alaskan mountain cabin during a violent nighttime blizzard, it was no less than the voice of God that urged him to take a closer look, soon to discover his snow angel.

Unconscious and more than half frozen to death, her name, as Noah would later learn after boldly saving her life, was Elizabeth, a beautiful young woman, fragile yet fierce, and intent on discovering gold like so many others in that region during the late 1800s.

But why Elizabeth was so drawn to the gold, and why she would chase it even through a pounding storm that no man would dare face, was a secret to be shared with no one else, not even at the inviation of Noah's d eep blue trusting eyes.

First time novelist Jamie Carie pens a can't-put-down debut in Snow Angel, a masterfully romantic story wherein cold and lonely hearts risk everything to be forever warmed.

Review

An excellent example of the Christian genre.
The author was clever in her use of the prologue to set the back story, the use of actual letters to indicate that Elizabeth's mother tried hard to find her child, and then...

The pacing was good; the author's language was lush and her descriptions and use of adjectives were stunning; Carie's style is introspective and she has a keen ear for good dialog.

Snow Angel is an excellent example of the Christian genre. Throughout the story, Noah keeps his love of God and because Noah has been ever faithful to God, He gives him that which he desires most.

Snow Angel is a pleasure to read. -- TheCelebrityCafe.com

An author to watch!, October 7th, 2007
Elizabeth Smith doesn't know where she has come from but her future goals are clear ~ she just didn't count on a storm interfering with those plans.

Noah Wesley loves the solitary wilderness that is his Alaskan home but when God calls him to open his front door during a fearsome blizzard, the unconscious woman lying at his feet unlocks a chamber in his heart previously undiscovered.

While drawn to each other during Elizabeth's recovery, Noah knows he can't compete with her yearning to stake a claim in the Yukon gold fields. Noah fears for Elizabeth's safety as she pursues a perilous course but it is a more evil threat from her past that may haunt them forever.

Snow Angel captured my imagination from beginning to end. It is an epic romance with fast paced intrigue and an emotional intensity rarely achieved. Jamie Carie's gifted characterisation is of a calibre expected from a multi-published author not one writing her debut novel. Noah and Elizabeth have enormous depth, with appealing attributes alongside tangible weaknesses that evoke an emotional and compassionate response. Jamie does not shy away from portraying genuine romantic tension and desire and the dilemma that poses for Noah, a man of faith and integrity experiencing passion and attraction.

Jamie's prose is elegant yet accessible, placing the reader amongst the icy shards of the blizzard and the muck and deprivation of the gold fields. Faith and belief is interwoven seamlessly, gently revealing the loving heart of God amidst the heartache of loss and loneliness. Prepare to be swept away by this powerful tale of love and sacrifice and become a devoted reader of anything Jamie Carie pens in the future. -- Rel Mollet "RelzReviewz" (Australia) - Amazon.com

Carie's 'Snow Angel' is riveting, August 26, 2007
Jamie Carie's debut novel, "Snow Angel," gripped me from the beginning and wouldn't let go. This romance/adventure story includes Christian themes as well as suspense and history. From the first page, the characters and their struggles drew me in. Elizabeth, Noah and Jane seem real. Their personalities are well-developed; they have strengths and weaknesses. They're not perfect, but regular people trying to make the right decisions. Sometimes they succeed. Sometimes they fail. Joining each of them on the journey made me want to speak aloud to them, to tell them what's coming next, or to tell them what they don't know that might prompt a different decision. Also watch for Will and Cara Collins, Charlie McKay, Joe Brandon and William Cleary, among others. Their story takes place, for the most part, in rugged Alaska during the 1897 gold rush. The historical details and facts about life in that time and place give this book an educational aspect, even for readers whose main purpose is simply to escape into another world. The historical details blend in with the story and don't overpower the plot or frustrate the reader who wants action instead of dominating description. Their struggles: a toddler taken from her mother, given away by her grandfather - location unknown; a woman seeking gold and freedom, half frozen at a man's door - someone seeks her for dishonorable reasons; a man warms to his new companion, just as she decides to pursue her dream. This book is a thoroughly enjoyable read. Others, like me, may find they don't want to put it down until the last page is read. -- Rhonda S. Johnson (Rochester, IN) - Amazon.com

The romantic tension is both powerful and convincing." -- TCM Reviews

From the Author

Dear Reader:

Independence is the safe route. If you fail, you have no one to blame but yourself, right? Elizabeth has found this to be true. Abandoned as a child she has learned the value influencing people and circumstances to fit her need. If she knows anything for sure, it is how to survive. And she's convinced all she needs is her share of Yukon gold. Back in 1898, women had few choices aside from marriage - Elizabeth's security, her pot of gold, means Alaska and the courage to get there.

But she didn't plan on meeting a man like Noah.

Noah Wesley startled her out of all her thinking. He didn't seem to need anything . . . and why that was puzzled and courted her. This man, so tall and strong in ways that weren't just physical, taught her something beyond mere survival. He taught her risk . . . and hope . . . and a faith in something bigger than the here and now.

Noah taught her love.

They say you can't let nothin' in without letting go. Now, Elizabeth is faced with the task of letting go of everything that has helped her survive over the past twenty years. Can a mere man be trusted with something so guarded as her heart? Will he prove as good as he appears? There is some healing to be done first. Jane is the mother who has been searching for her stolen daughter. A dark evil has kept them apart, but God is still God and His timing is perfect. Just look up, Elizabeth. Look up and believe.

Dear Reader, if you have ever doubted love, both His and man's, as I have, you will know Elizabeth's story. There might not be fairy-tale endings in this life . . . but there are eternal endings, and any effort of faith we put into the side of love will count for eternity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic First Novel 27 Oct 2008
By Annette M. Irby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I accidentally ran into this one here at Amazon and read the blurb. Based on that, the cover and the fact this was from B&H's newer fiction line, I had to bite. I'm glad I did.

Jamie took some risks with this story. At times, it reads more like a secular romance novel. To some, she may have crossed a few lines in regards to passion and one specific scene of violence. Yet, the story is so compelling you are involved before you can resist. I liked the setting of this story, which she realistically painted with her words. Her characters were well-drawn and her plot pacing kept me turning pages. I highly recommend this award winner, though it's not for everyone. If you enjoy edgy Christian fiction, this one's for you. Jamie is a fresh voice in Christian fiction whose original prose will delight readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Adventurous Romance 17 Aug 2007
By Kevin Joseph - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Part Christian romance, part historical adventure novel, Snow Angel features an indomitable female protagonist in the orphaned Elizabeth Greyson and a worthy love interest in mountain man Noah Wesley. These two forces of nature collide when Elizabeth collapses on the doorstep of Noah's remote cabin during an Alaskan blizzard. While reviving her, Noah becomes entranced by the unlikely contrast between this beautiful young woman's delicate appearance and her hardy, adventure-seeking constitution.

As Elizabeth regains her strength, however, Noah finds his romantic intentions spurned by Elizabeth's desire to shield him from her spotty past and pursue her dream of striking it rich as a gold prospector. The suspense mounts as Noah sets off across the Alaskan tundra in desperate pursuit of Elizabeth, who herself is being pursued by an unsavory figure from her past.

Set during the Yukon Gold Rush at the turn of the century, author Jamie Carie evokes a strong sense of time and place with her poetic writing style and discriminating use of historical details. The romantic tension between Noah, who represents the Christian ideal, and Elizabeth, whose tragic circumstances have led her morally astray, is both powerful and convincing. Carie illuminates various facets of Elizabeth's hard-luck story through several point-of-view characters, including Elizabeth's mother who has spent years searching for the daughter who was taken from her at age two.

While melodramatic in places and lacking the heated passion some romance readers may expect, Snow Angel will resonate with fans of religious-based love stories and historical fiction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can she trust again? 17 Mar 2011
By Courtney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Based in the late 1800's, Snow Angel is about a young girl named Elizabeth who was given away by her birth mother as an infant. She went through a couple of orphanages and then ended up being adopted by a very horrible set of parents. When the Alaska gold rush came around and Elizabeth had a chance to escape her horrible adopted parents she took it! She was then followed by a man who was paid by her adopted parents to find her, she had to continually be on the run, never trusting anyone or staying one place. Somehow she ended up on the porch of a man named Noah. Noah took an interest in her but could not get through to her tormented soul. Can Elizabeth stay safe from the man who hunts her and wants to destroy her life and can Noah convince her that he loves her and can keep her safe. Can both Noah and Elizabeth follow the voice and direction of God?!

Jamie Carie did a great job with developing characters that you just connected with right from the start. Even from the beginning you wanted to continue reading as fast as you could to see what was going to happen to poor Elizabeth. I really enjoyed this story because it encourages those that have struggled with broken families, hurt relationships and bad experiences that you can overcome those situations and learn to love again! It's very inspirational and encouraging!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully engaging story. 29 Oct 2007
By Marcia Calhoun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Snow Angel is a wonderful tale of Elizabeth's search for identity and finding destiny instead. From the first page this novel hooked me and reeled me in, until the very last page when I really wasn't ready to let them go. Jamie Carie's wonderful description of the Alaskan frontier painted a beautiful word picture for me and it was more like watching a movie than reading a book. I liked this so much that I can't wait to see where her next one takes me. 2 thumbs up from me!
