WHAT ONCE WAS LOST
Genre: Inspirational, Historical Romance
What Once was Lost has all the markings of a great first book in a series. Avid readers of Sawyer will revel in the characters who live at the Brambleville Asylum. Readers will want to find out how the lives of the poor have become intertwined and to experience the hope they come to share. The plot is full of mysterious happenings, and Sawyer leads us to see how loving relationships often reveal the hand of God working among us.
Christina Willems is carrying out the mission of her deceased parents by directing the Brambleville Asylum for the Poor. When a fire makes it unlivable, Christina must transplant all of its inhabitants until she receives funding for the repairs. Someone or something seems to be keeping the farm where they land from becoming a refuge. Several of the townsfolk befriend the wayward occupants, but Christina fears the asylum will never be rebuilt. (WATERBROOK, Sep., 352 pp., $14.99)
