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.

Where the Heart Leads

(Heart of the Prairie #2)

by

Kim Vogel Sawyer

 

Where the Heart Leads is set among a Mennonite community in America, early in the twentieth century.  

In my opinion, the plot could well be adapted into any community (particularly rural), in any country, regardless of religious beliefs.  I was born and raised in rural Western Victoria (Australia) and watched as nearly all my school mates turned their backs on the family farm and made their way to Melbourne or other cities in search of education and employment.

So it is in Where the Heart Leads.  The Ollenburger family send their son to College/University in Boston where he is exposed to a whole new way of life.  A life far different to that experienced in his hometown in Kansas.

With romantic ties in both his hometown and the big smoke we are left wondering the outcome until the last page or so.

Where the Heart Leads is an easy, enjoyable read.  It is my second Kim Vogel Sawyer book of this genre and I will go back for more.
