    Once Was Lost is a book about faith About losing it and finding it.Yes, I know how it sounds Nothing can stop me from reading a book quicker than knowledge that I am about to delve into some Christian fiction I am not a religious person and dislike being preached at.But in this novel Samara s waning faith in God is similar to a non religious person s belief in the good in the world Sam feels hopeless Everything seems to fall apart her house, her family Sam s pastor father is distant an Once Was Lost is a book about faith About losing it and finding it.Yes, I know how it sounds Nothing can stop me from reading a book quicker than knowledge that I am about to delve into some Christian fiction I am not a religious person and dislike being preached at.But in this novel Samara s waning faith in God is similar to a non religious person s belief in the good in the world Sam feels hopeless Everything seems to fall apart her house, her family Sam s pastor father is distant and neglectful, her mother is in a rehab and unapproachable , her friendships The final straw is the disappearance of a 13 year old neighbor which for...

    Street Corner TBR Pile reduction challenge 7 Olivia I seldom read books about faith and religion, simply because, as what you could consider a non believer, they are rarely something I can relate to In this case, I have to say, Sara Zarr really succeeded in creating a very relatable heroine, not only for people who can identify themselves with her faith, but also for everyone else This book does not preach, and although Samara s situation is closely linked to her disappearing faith in God, h Street Corner TBR Pile reduction challenge 7 Olivia I seldom read books about faith and religion, simply because, as what you could consider a non believer, they are rarely something I can relate to In this case, I have to say, Sara Zarr really succeeded in creating a very relatable heroine, not only for people who can identify themselves ...

    3 1 2 starsWhile I can now say unequivocally that I am a committed Sara Zarr fan, this one is probably my least favorite of hers Like her other novels, it s well written and replete with honest, bare emotion, but for some reason I didn t connect with this one completely For me, her books belong in two categories there s th...

    Author Sara Zarr goes from strength to strength with her writing Story of a Girl and Sweethearts are both beautifully told quiet and courageous stories but I think Once Was Lost is my favourite so far.While the religious premise may make some mainstream readers hesitant, it is so honestly portrayed that it s not about religion at all, rather one girl coming to terms with faith, hopelessness, searching for the truth and trying to find her place in the world not issues unique...

    I want to believe the stories, that there really is someone who would search the whole mountainside just to find that one thing that he loves, and bring it home I am at a total loss as what to rate this book But one thing I can say for sure is that it gave me a lot to mull over and analyze, that I even thought about how I felt at the age of 15 again.At Samara s age I can remember being very contemplative like she was in the story She feels the urge to mature and to fully grasp the understanI want to believe the stories, that there really is someone who would search the whole mountainside just to find that one thing that he loves, and bring it home I am at a total loss as what to rate this book But one thing I can say for sure is that it gave me a lot to...
