A WHISPER OF PEACE
Sawyer’s strong young women are willing to take risks and become mentors to those less fortunate. Set in a breathtaking Alaskan territory, this story of friendship, trust and a true desire to minister gives the reader an eyewitness look at how demonstrating the love of God can work miracles.
Clay Selby and his stepsister Vivian are building a mission church and school for the Athabascan peoples of Alaska. They develop a friendship with Lizzie Dawson, who is an outcast because of her white father. Then an outbreak of a deadly illness creates opportunities for ministry and outreach that could go beyond the physical needs and reach the spiritual. (BETHANY HOUSE, Sep., 352 pp., $14.99)
