"What Once Was Lost" by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Brambleville Asylum for the Poor was the home for people needing help, lovingly and carefully run by Christina Willems. But a fire has taken that away. How will Christina keep these people together and safe? Will someone come to their assistance?

Christina desperately needs help to get her family back together. She needs to be able to repair the farm and provide a safe home for them. Tommy is a young blind boy who needs more attention than she can spare while working, so reaches out to Levi Johnson for help. Levi is a recluse who reluctantly agrees to take in Tommy. The relationship flourishes and changes both of their lives. The real question for all of them is whether or not they will not only open their hearts to what God has to say, but also whether or not they will follow Him. Pick up this book and take the journey with Christina, Tommy, Levi, and the others, and see what happens when they do and don't listen.

This is a wonderful book filled with hope, fear, love, desperation, and redemption. Ms. Sawyer weaves a wonderful story with realistic characters and settings. I recommend it to readers of all types because it has a message for us all. I received my review copy from Blogging For Books in exchange for an honest review.
