Book Review-A-Whisper-of-Peace

 

A Whisper of Peace

(Heart of the Prairie #7)

by

Kim Vogel Sawyer

 

Set in Alaska, A Whisper of Peace, tells of the trials and tribulations faced by an American missionary and his step-sister when they try to start a Mission within an Athabascan tribal village.

Clay and Vivian must contend with Athabascan rituals and rules in a continuous battle to win over the tribe to Christianity.

One of  the rules inhibits a budding romance, although it is the connection between these two parties which brings about a peaceful resolution to one of the strictest rules.  

There was a question I  kept asking myself during this book as I felt it was pivotal to the plot and was being ignored.  Thankfully Clay’s father responded to a plea for guidance in a manner which had me nodding my head in agreement. 

A Whisper of Peace is another easy, enjoyable, read by Kim Vogel Sawyer novel.  I will go back for more.

A definite
4_stars

read.

After our coldest February day in twelve years

on Sunday…

it was a good excuse to run some

early morning errands, with camera in hand.

After a gloomy Sunday, Monday’s sunrise

was a non-event due to cloud cover.

Rhineland-1

 
We left Amsterdam bound for

Germany’s Rhineland District.

Our coach driver was still driving on the wrong side

of the road…just like everyone else.

rhineland_train_0079

Trains were speeding by at speeds never seen in Australia.

And so close to the roadway.

I have to be honest I do not know if this shot was

taken as we left Amsterdam or

while on our Rhine River Cruise.

These houses a certainly situated on the banks

of the Rhine River.

Finally we arrived for our lunch break at the

Cuckoo Clock Factory which makes Cuckoo Clocks

from the Black Forest wood.
