Overview

In this romantic 19th century-set short fiction follow-up to What Once Was Lost, while setting the stage for Sawyer's next novel, Echoes of Mercy, a young woman must let go of past rejections to find hope in the meaningful future God wants for her.
 
Daisy Forrester has been raised in Brambleville, Kansas at Dunnigan's Orphan Asylum by Levi and Christina Jonnson. As she has watched younger, more appealing orphans come and go on to new families, Daisy has spent years becoming a valued helper for Ma and Pa Jonnson, as the orphans call them. However, she is coming up on her sixteenth birthday, and it will soon be time for her to make her own way in the world.  Nervous about leaving the farm, she turns to the one connection she has out in the world--Robby, a friend who left the asylum before her and is now employed in Sinclair, Kansas at Dinsmore's World Famous Chocolate Factory.
 
Daisy heads for the safe harbor that is his friendship, but the outside world doesn't offer the friendly welcome  that Daisy dreams of and Robby faces unique challenges of his own in the form of an eager co-worker bent on sending Daisy back to Brambleville.  Can Daisy look beyond her own insecurities to embrace a young man with great affection for her, and a God who calls her 'beloved'--just as she is?

    DarkenedNight review.

    I like it. Good transitions, very few spelling errors, and fine details. I think that there is one thing you could put in it. Young love. Being torn apart. Things like that. Twilight, hunger games, divergent. They all have young love. Sorry for the debate.

    Let Me Tell You [...] Chapter Six

    I could hear the whispers as l walked down the hallway, led by Reo, to the dayroom. My gaze flitted around nervously. I guess l might have paused, because Reo tapped my wrist and look at me expectantly. I began walking again, and l looked at the magnet board. Next to my name, l had a green magnet, a black magnet, a white magnet, and that HROF. I instantly translated the colors. Green meant l was on ConstantObs, a.k.a constant observation. Yay. Now they have to watch me shower. I made a face and leaned against the dayroom's outside wall. <br>Black magnet meant l can't leave the unit. No gym, no art, and no eatery. I get to eat food in styrofoam containers. What a dream. <br>White. I didn't know what white meant, actually. I glanced up at Reo. "What is the white magnet for?"<p>"I can't tell you that one," he replied.<p>"Why?" I asked, pressing further.<p>"You aren't the only one the white. It's confidential," he explained. Great. I knew that the magnets were for the staff only, but l thought l could at least know what was next to my name.<p>Reo led me into the dayroom where the boys and girls were serated; boys on the far side of the room, us girls at the see-through wall. My eyes instantly locked with a boy l knew to be Michael, and he winked. Oh, god, he winked. I shuffled to my chair, smoothing the gown down. A girl behind me leaned forward. Her breath smelled like peppermints. "White means you're a druggy. Join the club," she breathed in my ear.<p>A druggy? My face flushed. I had never taken a drug before, besides prescribed medications. That explained Michael. He had a white magnet. Great. Some kind of mental hospital gang. Just great.<p>While the other kids lined up to go to the Eatery, a staff switched a magnet from green to green with a black line through it. Now l'm on one-one. Just peachy. Reo left the room, replaced by another staff. I recognized him as Mr. Cory. He's black, with a bald head. He's really young, but l don't know his exact age. I know Reo is 22, because he told me.<p>Mr. Cory entered the room with my food in a styrofoam container. He turned a chair around to face me and he sat. "Hi," l said meekly.<p>"Hello, Jess." He glanced at the clock and then back to me.<p>After eing handed the container, l put it down on the seat next to without hesitation.<p>"Not hungry?" he hummed.<p>"No," l lied. I know it only hurts me, but l refused to eat out of styrofoam, with a plastic fork with neatly rounded edges so l couldn't self-harm with it or whatever, and in the dayroom. I got up and picked up the container, walking over to the paper bag trashcan. Literally. It's a huge paper bag inside of a bucket. I threw the food in there and returned to my seat, feeling my stomach grumble in protest.<p>"Why did they list me as a druggy?" I asked casually.<p>"You mean the magnets?"<p>"Yeah."<p>"The doctor prescribed you medications that includes Bozac in it. You won't have to go to the drug class instead of nursing group, but you will have a peppermint cup like the others."<p>Oh, l see how it is. Put me on drugs to save my mental health. Great. I'll stop mutilating my body and switch to overdosing or drugs. That fixes everything.<p>~Starry &#10023 Night
