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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “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.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steena Holmes | 2/10/2014

    " Loved this new story. I wish the characters were someone I could relate to more - someone more down to earth and all around 'american' but I could still relate to them and believed the story line. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy | 2/3/2014

    " Three, maybe more stars. About a plane crash survivor with amnesia, trying to piece her life story back together. Pretty good, mostly clean "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandydoyle | 1/7/2014

    " Allison Winn Scotch once again creates a character that you may not always love, but that you feel empathy for. I particularly appreciated the twist near the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 1/2/2014

    " Nell is one of two survivors of a widely-covered plane crash. When her physical injuries heal, her amnesia remains and she has to be introduced to the people in her life, including a husband, mother, sister and missing father. As she finds her way, she is able to reinvent the parts of herself that she finds she didn't like. This is a book that is easily read; however, there is nothing memorable about it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diana | 12/19/2013

    " Really a 2.5 star book. Had a hard time getting into it but it was ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Gudgel | 12/6/2013

    " Great easy read. I was hoping the songs would play more into the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen Boner | 12/2/2013

    " Easy read. I liked it! Appreciated that it didn't devolve into a sappy love story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 12/1/2013

    " Didn't like the mom - very cliche hippie, felt overdone. Couldn't relate to any of the characters. Depressing. Not an awful book. 2.5 Okay. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alissa | 11/17/2013

    " I was really into it when it first began but then it wore on me and I didn't care for the resolution. Nell became annoying to me. The premise was intriguing though but I think what Alice forgot was a better amnesia story. 2.5 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 10/21/2013

    " I really loved this... until the ending, which was incredibly disappointing and not at all satisfying. Is Scotch going to write a follow up? Otherwise, it seemed to me that things were completely unresolved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 7/30/2013

    " Amnesia seems to be the disease to write about. I enjoyed this book because it explored different types of relationships and boundaries. the plot had enough twists to keep me interested "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Martha | 2/12/2013

    " Here's a perfect example of a terrific premise ruined by lifeless writing. There is little here in terms of character development or momentum, and, by the end, I couldn't care less about what happened to the dull and colorless characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rosario | 12/30/2012

    " Good beginning. Boring from the middle all the way to the end. Didn't care for any of the characters. "
