Lost and Found Faith


Lost and Found Faith JustRead Blog + Review Tour

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Lost and Found Faith by Laurel Blount, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Lost and Found FaithTitle: Lost and Found Faith

Author: Laurel Blount

Publisher: Love Inspired

Release Date: August 24, 2021

Genre: Christian, Contemporary Romance

A terrible tragedy nearly broke him. Can love put him back together again?

Widowed history teacher Neil Hamilton has lost his way—at work, with people and even with his faith. But Neil's shut-down existence is disrupted when a small toddler and his would-be foster mother, vibrantly pretty Maggie Byrne, come crashing into Neil's yard and his life. Can this absentminded teacher find himself again…and take a chance on love, too?

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.


 The absentminded professor. You're such a stereotype, Neil!

Oh Neil! He is so protective of the toddler that he finds in his yard that you can't help but be drawn to him immediately. All his protective instincts kick in, ones he probably didn't even realize he had. Maggie enters the scene and he is immediately suspicious of her relationship with Oliver and blasts Maggie for losing him.

Some of the best blessings we ever get are on the other side of what we're most scared of. 

Not all things are as they seem and much is lost at the beginning of the story. However, as the story progresses much is found as well.  

I have a heart for foster children and this book was written with a lot of heart and soul. The emotion tangibly rolled off the pages. From sweet Oliver who is unsure of his new "mommy" to Maggie wanting to do everything in her power to get him to bond with her. Ruby, with her fount of information, and love and care of everyone, especially the hardest of all cases. Even Neil, not being sure what he has walked into, but with hurts of his own, he fits and understands better than most. There are some really tender moments in the story and they literally brought tears to my eyes.

There were a lot of great characters in this story and I can't wait to read more about them. This is the first book that I have read by Laurel Blount and I look forward to reading more by her. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a sweet, faith-filled love story, with great depth, that doesn't discredit the hard moments, but understands we have to get through them to move on. There was nothing to dislike in this story, it was incredibly well done.

Thank you to JustReads and the author for the opportunity to read this book. I was not required to provide a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.
