Once Was Lost: Summary and book reviews of Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr
At its heart, Once Was Lost is about a girl living through family life so painful that it causes her to question her long-held faith in God. It's a good book for thinking and reflecting, for feeling and remembering. I recommend it to anyone who has lived through tough times and has found herself asking: Is there a God? And if so, where is he? (Reviewed by Pam Watts).
