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 separate 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 and his stepsister, Vivian, arrive in Alaska to set up a church and school among the Athbascan people. Clay 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?
Jeannie DonaldsonStatesboro, GAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Whisper of PeaceSeptember 14, 2014Jeannie DonaldsonStatesboro, GAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A wonderful story of love winning out over traditions. The characters are strong, independent, and have a plan of their own. God has other plans, and He wins out. Lots of surprises, some heavy times, some light and fun times. Lots of smiles. I love Kim Sawyer's books. Each is always uniquely different from the others and her grammar impeccable, which I cannot say for most of the writers these days. I had a hard time putting it down, and was so sad to have it come to an end. I felt emotionally attached to the characters and wanted more... But that is the way with Kim's books. A strong Christian message, romance, and the unique Indian flavor made it a great book in my estimation. A great story for female or male and teens. This one will remain in my library!

She's had some books (like "Courting Miss Amsel") that I've absolutely loved. This wasn't one of them, but I don't regret reading it. For one thing, I absolutely loved the Alaskan setting! Right in the shadow of Denali (aka Mt. McKinley). It was awesome - cause I've been there! All in all, this was a good book, just didn't grab me as much. Definitely worth my one-time read though.
rose mccauley5 Stars Out Of 5A unique read--A Whisper of PeaceJuly 7, 2012rose mccauleyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved this book by Kim Sawyer! Although not a typical prairie romance, it was definitely a romance! Just one set in Alaska at a mission post for the Athabascan Indian tribe. I fell in love with both the unique main characters from the start.
Lizzie Dawson is a very independent young woman who has lived on her own for years. Not a part of the tribe of her dead Indian mother or the white father who left them years ago, she has made her own way, using the skills of the Athabascans to survive.
Clay Selby has left the lower states to become a missionary like his own father. When he encounters the beautiful blue-eyed Indian girl, he wonders at her story. What he learns stuns him and leaves him in a quandry. Must he choose between befriending her or the people he came to minister to?
Lizzie is also attracted to Clay, but refuses to allow herself this weakness. Until the day she shoots him! How can God work good out of this accident? Read the book and find out, and give yourself a great read in the Yukon of Alaska in the late 1890s.

It has a lot of negativity and is not very uplifting by comparrison. It's just "ok", so I would not recommend it over other choices.
This book retails for $14.99, but I received it Free from Bethany House Publ. for my honest oppinion.

To travel so far to reach a people for God, surely He will understand if we have to sacrifice the good of one person. What is one against the chance to win so many? For Him? And yet . . . when it comes right down to it . . . God will show us the worth of one sole is more than the whole earth. Every time.
