“What Once Was Lost” by Kim Vogel Sawyer is definitely a five star novel. I think this is my third book that I have read by her and they are all winners. They all make you feel that love is possible and that God wants the best for us. Her books are Christian fiction but I think even unbelievers will enjoy reading them as they are not “preachy” but in this story especially Kim Vogel Sawyer makes the readers aware that “ we are all in need of forgiveness and points out several truths that Christians aren’t anybody than others.
Christina Willems provides for a group of displaced individuals at Brambleville Asylum for the Poor until a fire breaks out. This fire is the beginning of a new life for all of the individuals as well as Christina. I had to keep reading this story to see what happened to them all. My favorite character in this story, beside Christina and one of the heroes, Levi,( a mill owner,)is Tommy. ( a blind boy, I just felt his pain throughout the pages). There is actually two heroes in this story.
This story had a ending I did not see happening! What the villain, Ham intended for harm backfired and all the individuals ended up with a happy outcome!
I really recommend this book if you want to see what good can come from what seems impossible odds!
