Publisher's Description

A woman meant to serve, a child in the dark, a man standing apart—can these three souls embrace a God with new plans for them?
 
On a small Kansas farm, Christina Willems lovingly shepherds a group of poor and displaced individuals who count on her leadership and have come to see the Brambleville Asylum for the Poor as their home. But when a fire breaks out in the kitchen leaving the house uninhabitable, she must scramble to find shelter for all in her care, scattering her dear "family."
 
With no other options, Christina is forced to approach Levi Jonnson, a reclusive mill owner, to take in a young blind boy named Tommy Kilgore. Levi agrees with reluctance but finds himself surprised by the bond that quickly grows between him and Tommy. As obstacles to repairing the farm pile up against Christina, she begins to question her leadership ability and wonders if she can fulfill the mission to which she's dedicated her life. And when an old adversary challenges Christina, will she find an unlikely ally—or more—in the aloof Levi? Can Levi reconcile with the rejection that led to his hermit-like existence and open his heart and life to something more, especially a relationship with a loving God?

    What Once Was Lost by Kim Vogel Sawyer is a delightful read. This Christian historical-fiction is filled with determination, love, disappointment and victory. I did not want to stop reading until the very end. Readers will love most of the characters but will experience negative emotions for others.

    Read this great historical fiction and see what lessons you might learn--just like the characters in the book. I rated this book 5 stars.

    What a very interesting story and the "time" in which the story takes place....it is almost as if you are in that setting as you enjoy a wonderfully interesting book! It was very difficult to put the book down!

    I read this book quite a long time ago and can still remember a lot of it, which means it was really good. I like the characters - they're unusual and spunky. Good read.

    This review was written for What Once Was Lost.
    Christina Willems has never known anything but a life of ministry. She was born to parents who ran a "poor farm" and grew up assisting them in their ministry and assumed that was her calling after their deaths. When the home is damaged by fire, Christina's "family" must stay other places which makes her feel out of control. She has difficulty finding a home for a young blind boy until a bachelor mill owner agrees to take him for a short time. Christina learns that she has been making her own plans rather than asking God's will in her life. The story line was different and enjoyable. What Once Was Lost was well written. I recommend this book to others who enjoy historical fiction.

    I received this book in a giveaway.

    What Once Was Lost***** by Kim Vogel Sawyer

    Christina Willems runs the Brambleville Asylum for the Poor on a small Kansas farm. Brambleville has become the home for the poor and displaced men, women and children she lovingly cares for. They are her "family". One night she is awakened smelling smoke and quickly finds a fire in the kitchen. Not sure how the fire started her first concern is to get her family out to safety. Since it is not safe to live there until the kitchen has been repaired, Christina must find temporary lodgings for each of them. After finding shelter for all but one little boy, young blind Tommy Kilgore, Christina seeks someone to take him in. Her only choice is to ask Levi Johnson, who is the reclusive mill owner and would rather be alone and left alone. She puts Tommy in the wagon and goes to Levi's home. Leaving Tommy in the wagon, she finds Levi and asks him to take in Tommy. Levi is resistant to the idea but finally reluctantly agrees, provided it is temporary.

    Levi is not sure what to do with Tommy while he is at the mill, even though the mill is close to his home. Tommy is blind and it appears that he has been coddled and has had everything done for him. As the days go by, Levi's heart opens a bit and develops a bond to the boy. Levi and Tommy both have been hurt in the past, the reason Levi left society to be alone. His heart had been hurt too many times and he even has turned his back on God.

    Christina begins to despair and her faith challenged when the repairs on the farm seem to go wrong. One thing after another turns up and it looks like it may never be repaired. Finally the kitchen begins to be repaired but someone destroys all the work. Who would do such a thing? It appears revenge is behind the destruction of all the work. As things go from bad to worse she turns to Levi to help her. Just as his heart had opened up to Tommy, he is loosing his heart to Christina. Can his heart be healed? Can he surrender his heart to God again and allow Him to guide him? Will the repairs on the farm ever be completed or will she have to sell it? What will happen to her family?

    In What Once Was Lost, is a story about hardships, past hurts and letting go of that past, endurance, danger, revenge, as well as changing of hearts, restoration, romance and love and spiritual renewal. I enjoyed this book very much. My heart was captured by Tommy and his plight.
