    Alice Deaton was happily married to Oscar with two children, Laura and Francis in Florence, Kansas. That was until Oscar went to help an elderly neighbor and had a heart attack and died. Now Alice has to find a way to support the children and herself on no income, the home they rent is paid for through Oscar's paycheck so she doesn't even know if they'll have a roof over their head. Oh, and when she went to apply for a job at the bank, the banker ends up telling her that Oscar has owed him money for three years, so now does she not get a job but she owes him money she didn't know about. She struggles without telling anyone about what a hard time she's having, that is until the preacher's wife finds a crumpled up letter from Alice's widowed sister-in-law telling her that she has no room for them to come and live there.

    This was a short quick read and I'm now wondering what will happen to Alice, Laura and Francis. Alice appears to be a woman who will do anything to for her children so we will see how the future turns out when I read What Once Was Lost, I'm really looking forward to it.

    After reading What Once Was Lost, I couldn't wait to get my hands on its prequel, The Grace That Leads Us Home.

    This eShort claims new territory for Kim Vogel Sawyer. She had never before written a book of any size specifically for eReaders. It is my hope that she will continue to explore this venue to provide more inside looks into the characters that don't get quite as much attention in the full-sized novels she releases.

    In a time when an $18.00 debt was insurmountable, Oscar Deaton perishes, leaving his wife to repay a loan she knew nothing about. Atop that, she also has to raise their two young children. Times are tough and jobs are scarcely available. Will widow Alice Deaton find employment in time to pay the month's rent and the loan looming over her? If she does find a position, will it pay enough to feed and clothe her children in the harsh winter months? Or will she have to resort to begging for her children's supper?

    My heart broke in two when Alice wondered, in chapter one, "How would she and the children survive without Oscar?" I've seen hard times before and relied on God to provide for my family, so I well understood the desperate place Alice found herself in. When you're down and out, you face difficult decisions you had never thought you'd have to make in your life. It's times like those when we find out what we're really made of. Do we have the courage to carry on when the outcome looks bleak? Do we have the strength to follow the instructions of Ephesians 6:13? "Wherefore take up the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand." (ASV)

    It is my prayer for each of you to obtain the courage and faith it takes to stand firm when all else fails. May God be with you and your families during times of plenty and seasons of struggle.

    A Grace That Leads Us Home is a very heartfelt short story prequel that gives background into a family that will be involved in the novel What Once Was Lost. I found this to be a very beautifully written story that took me about forty-five minutes to read.

    After a loss to their family, Alice Deaton feels abandoned by God. She struggles to provide for her small family, and things just seem to pile up and become overwhelming. Will Alice learn to rely on God again? Has He truly abandoned her family or will His grace shine through in the end? I am very excited to read What Once Was Lost now that I have read this captivating introduction.
