What Once Was Lost

What Once Was Lost
Kim Vogel Sawyer

Christina has taken over the poor farm when her father died. It's the only life she's ever known and she feels a sense of value with her life work. But when a fire destroys the kitchen the residents are displaced among the towns people. One of her favorite charges goes to a reclusive saw mill owner. The next few months are filled with faith testing experiences. Christina is shown that maybe her plans aren't necessarily God's plans.

The characters in this story were well defined and fun to spend time with. The message of salvation and Christ's love was an integral part and woven throughout the book. The middle of the plot seemed to drag a bit with very little leading to a conclusion. It was also a bit dark and sad in the middle. But then the story picked up and wrapped up well. I like a bit more romance in the story. The ending seemed to be a bit much considering the amount of time the couple spent together throughout the book. This was a good book, but not a favorite for me personally. I enjoyed the writing style though so will be checking out this author's other books.

I received this book free of charge from WaterBrook in exchange for my honest review.
