Kim Vogel Sawyer enlivens listeners’ hearts with her CBA and ECPA bestselling inspirational novels.
In Alaska in 1898, Lizzie Dawson, ostracized by her tribe because of her white father, lives alone in the mountains, 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 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?
“Scotch crafts a plausible story, complete with a capable and prickly protagonist, that doesn’t resort to any movie-of-the-week amnesia clichés. A dry-eyed modern take on healing and forgiveness.”
“Scotch has drawn a fully three-dimensional heroine in Nell, and the story’s pacing perfectly mirrors the protagonist’s increasing rate of self-discovery. Scotch peppers her chapters with pop-culture and musical references, giving the story a modern, lively feel…A breezy yet introspective examination of one woman’s history.”
“Bestseller Winn Scotch sparkles in her captivating fourth novel…She particularly shines in creating secondary characters—especially Rory and Anderson—flawed but engaging. Readers will love Nell and won’t be able to put the book down until they know how much of her past she wants to bring into her future.”
