What once was lost by Kim Vogel-Sawyer

      In What One Was Lost, Christina Willems is a caretaker of a "Poor Farm" in Kansas in 1890. Following in her father's footsteps, she believes she is called to care for those who are in need. She does her job well and is loved by those in her care. But when fire destroys her home, she must spread out her "family" to stay with others. As Christina works to find a way to rebuild the poor house, someone from her past is working against her. While she struggles with mounting trials and tribulations, an appreciation and attraction blooms between her and Levi. Will accepting unexpected help and support give Christina the personal encouragement she needs? Will seeing through the eyes of a young blind boy open Levi's heart and help him to see his own faith again?

          Vogel-Sawyer writes about the prairies of Kansas and how one woman not only changes the lives of those she cares for, but has her life changed in return. What One Was Lost is a beautifully written story of overcoming obstacles and adversity through faith. This story is told from the viewpoints of the different characters; readers will be particularly touched by Tommy's "vision" of the world around him.   If you like historical fiction you will like this story.
