NEWS: Review Raves for “What Once Was Lost”

 

The Christian Manifesto states about award-winning author Kim Vogel Sawyer’s new novel, What Once Was Lost:

“This story was by far my favorite by this author. I got dragged in so completely that I devoured this book and was sad to put it down. The thing I loved most about the story was the gritty and realistic feeling throughout it. I never once felt that something was unrealistic or implausible. The author’s descriptions and amazing character development kept this story at a good pace and made my mind’s eye go crazy with color and feelings. I loved this storyline so much!”
