But when a fire breaks out leaving the house uninhabitable, she mush scramble to find shelter for all in her care, scattering her dear "family". With no other options, Christina is forced to approach Levi Johnson, a reclusive mill owner, to take 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, Christina begins to wonder 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 excistence and hope his heart to something more, especially a relationship with a loving God?

Although this is the first book of Kim Vogel Sawyer's that I've reviewed, at least I think it is, I'm very familiar with the author. If you're looking to go to a good romance, you can't do much better than What Once was Lost, it has amazing characters and a great build up. I'd also recommend it if you like Prairie Song by Mona Hodgson or Trouble in Store by Carol Cox
