A Whisper of Peace by Kim Vogel Sawyer*A Review

A Whisper of Peace by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Ostracized by her tribe because of her white father, Lizzie Dawson lives alone in the mountains of Alaska, practicing the ways of her people even as she resides in the small cabin her father built for her mother. She dreams of reconciling with her grandparents to fulfill her mother's dying request, but she has not yet found a way to bridge the gap that separates her from her tribe.

Clay Selby has always wanted to be like his father, a missionary who holds a great love for the native people and has brought many to God. Clay arrives in Alaska to set up a church and school among the Athabascans. He is totally focused on this goal... until he meets a young, independent Indian woman with the most striking blue eyes he's ever seen.

But Lizzie is clearly not part of the tribe. And befriending her might have dire consequences for his mission. Will Clay be forced to choose between his desire to minister to the natives and the quiet nudging of his heart?

  A Whisper of Peace is a good book, but for me it really started slow. It didn’t seem like a lot happened in this book and it was easy to guess the ending. It took me longer than normal to read because it just wasn’t that interesting. I know Kim Vogel Sawyer is a sweetheart of a person and has written many wonderful books, but this just isn’t one  of them.
  Don’t get me wrong this is a fun read if you don’t have any other books to read. It is full of encouraging thoughts.
  I would have liked the characters to have had a little more depth of character and to be stronger in their feelings and the way they lived their lives.
  I just don’t think it is a book I would ever read again.
I recommend this book for a easy going kind of read if you don’t have anything more interesting to read.

Thanks for the honest review. I've loved many of Kim's books and the Alaska setting on this one sounds interesting.
