Sawyer, Kim Vogel. What Once Was Lost. Colorado Springs, CO: WaterBrook Press. 2013.
Christina Willems’s world is turned upside down after a fire severely damages the Brambleville Asylum for the Poor. As the home’s leader, she must find temporary shelter for the home’s inhabitants. As a last choice, Christian must place the young boy Tommy, who has been blinded, with the reclusive Mr. Levi Jonnson. While the circumstances are not ideal, they may prove to be the required events to bring much needed change and healing within the residents, Christiana, and Levi.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
I can guarantee that this will be a book that you will whole-heartedly devour. From the first chapter to the last, you will gladly consume the words written by Kim Vogel Sawyer. My only advice – make sure you start the novel at a time when you can read the book in an entire sitting; otherwise, you will find yourself reluctantly tearing yourself away from the pages to attend to distractions. Forget laundry, making dinner and homework – eagerly absorbing the sentences of the book will become your main priority.
4.5 (out of 5 Stars)
