My Thoughts

I am so glad I decided to read this prequel before reading "What Once Was Lost".  I would have missed some sweet, tender and heartbreaking moments in Alice Denton's and her two small children's life prior to "What Once Was Lost".

Alice's young daughter had such an unwavering faith in God and in her mother.  Which in turn gave Alice the strength she needed to carry on with her life whatever path God chose for them. 

The author has wrapped up "WHAT ONCE WAS LOST" with the prequel, the novel and a short story extra.  It's like a beautifully gift wrapped package just waiting to be enjoyed.

Reading this prequel is an option.  "What One Was Lost" is a stand alone read and "Just As I Am"  is extra.  But I highly recommend reading all three.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

Disclosure: I purchase a copy of this book for my own personal pleasure. This review is my honest opinion and was in no way compensated for this review.
