4.0 out of 5 stars Very intriguing romantic Christian novel 12 April 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story of Brian and Karen has a Christian theme, without being "preachy." I would have enjoyed a little more of the Gospel thrown in. A person who doesn't know the Lord, would not learn much about salvation by reading it. However, that being said, the novel held my interest.

In any romantic novel, there are always two people who are bound to eventually find true love, but the way of "getting" there can be truly a good read or it can be frustrating or tedious. This was a good read, all the characters are interesting, and the story line was well thought out. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good romance, with some surprises along the way.

I was truly impressed that there was a successful interracial theme throughout. When I read a line about the song from South Pacific about having to be taught to "hate," the words from that song went through my head all day! How true it is.

Thanks for a good romantic read, Sid Frost!

5.0 out of 5 stars Where Love Once Lives can Love Live Again? 8 Dec. 2012
By Reader & Reviewer Barb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Loved this novel with a bookmobile driver and teacher. Can't wait to read more by this author. It's my type of book set in a Southern town with a Christian message that tells a great story. Karen and Brian were college sweethearts but life got in their way as the secular world can sometimes do. Love the title, love the cover, and love the story. The characters are true to life. Romance with plot twists, and it's inspirational. Love doesn't always work out the first time around, but some people are blessed to get a second chance. This novel was written from the heart and is not your usual formula romance. That's why I loved it. I don't care for those easy formula romances with plots too easy to figure. I like surprises and twists. This was the first book I've read by this author, and I can't wait for the next.

1.0 out of 5 stars I hate to not finish a book 15 Aug. 2016
By L. Gangle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I hate to not finish a book, but came really close to not finishing this one. So slow & repetitious. "I have a secret I need to tell him/her, but I can't". Over & over & over. Basically NO plot to this book. The first book I've read from this author & I'm sorry to say that I probably won't read another one of his.

5.0 out of 5 stars More to the Story Than Meets the Eye 11 Sept. 2011
By Maria Sutton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Whenever I read a novel, I look for truth in the thoughts, words, and deeds of fictionalized characters. What resonated with me in Mr. Frost's book, Where Love Once Lived, came from a scene where Karen is making tea from her Mother's old teapot, which I will quote: "It was the teapot with the chipped lid. She thought about the day she dropped the lid on the kitchen floor when Steve announced he was moving out. He'd said he'd fallen in love with someone else, a younger woman, and was filing for divorce. That teapot had been her mother's, so she glued the lid together knowing it would never again be the same and would forever be a reminder..." Karen was concerned about re-establishing her relationship with Brian, her true love.

I could relate to that, as I'm sure many readers can, and Frost eloquently reminds us that we need to do more than put the pieces back together again in our lives - we need to forgive. Frost aptly chooses the words from the Bible to get the message across: "For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." Matthew 6:14.

The book was a quick, enjoyable read and I had to keep turning the pages to find out if Brian was EVER going to propose to Karen. It gave me insight into what goes through a man's mind when he wants to pop the question. All in all, it was a nice story to read on a Sunday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where Love Once Lived 30 Jan. 2012
By Carol A. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You might expect Where Love Once Lived would be a contemporary romance and you would be sort of right; it is a romance, but don't be fooled by the surface presentation. There is much more to this story than losing the love of one's life only to find it rekindled thirty years later!

A very serious subplot is the loss and then the restoration of faith in God. Brian, the main character drifts away from his faith after he thinks he has caused a pregnancy. He takes on a loveless marriage and throws himself into the business he builds--he does the right thing. He's that kind of guy. After "his" child leaves home he ends the marriage and returns to the Austin, TX area in the hope of rekindling the love he walked away from thirty years prior. In the course of finding his old love, his faith is also renewed.

A second sub-plot, and the one that impressed me the most powerfully, is the importance of communication and the peck of trouble we can cause ourselves by not communicating--with each other and with God! This theme was so strong for me that the other themes only surfaced as I thought about the story in retrospect! If Brian had communicated with Karen (life-long love) he would have discovered that she carried his child, not the other woman. If Karen had communicated with Brian it is possible he could have been saved thirty years of a loveless marriage. If both Brian and Karen had not assumed that they knew what the other was thinking...if children had communicated with parents, with God...and so it went over and over again. I wanted to shake the characters! So many actions were based upon incorrect assumptions and none of them double-checked their assumptions! No one clarified! Arrgh! This story illustrates eloquently the sad consequences of the lack of and breakdown in communication. Lack of communication makes relationships a risky business.

Where Love Once Lived is the prequel to Vengeance Squad so you learn why the bookmobile and we are also introduced to Liz, the highly sensitive librarian who is able to sense things about people and hear from God. She is a prominent figure in Vengeance Squad. Where Love Once Lived keeps you on the edge--there are so many things that can go wrong--and often do! In the end God wins, but how He does that you will have to read for yourself!

Author Sidney Frost does a good job of pacing the tension, almost resolution, and then tension again. I liked the application of Christian values to issues as they arose. A good clean read--I would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys romantic fiction.
