Until I Found You by Victoria Bylin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved Until I Found You. The story is told in 3 viewpoints: the heroine, hero and the heroine's grandmother.
I most appreciated the frankness of the grandmother who didn't make light of struggles she had in her life. Each of these caused her to trust God more and more, but NONE of them gave her the warm fuzzies.
I loved the thread of the struggle to help the California condors escape extinction and the hero's struggle to embrace chastity, a concept almost completely lost into today's culture. I found his reason for this completely believable.
I also felt the heroine's character was very believable. Things happen in every life that shape it for good or ill. But the message in this book is that God and love can heal every heart that opens to him. A very good thing to remember.
And the romance was so true to life, not forced and so moving!

Well, July 1st is a special day for me. My 41st romance comes out TODAY!
An impetuous love swept Blessing Brightman away from the Quaker community, into the highest ranks of Cincinnati society. But behind the glitter of ballroom and parlor, her spirit slowly eroded in an increasingly dangerous marriage. Widowed young, determined never to lose her independence again, Blessing reclaimed her faith and vowed to use her influence to fight for women’s rights and abolition.
Gerard Ramsay, scion of a wealthy Boston family, arrives in Cincinnati hoping to escape his father’s clutches with a strategy that will gain him independence. His plan is soon complicated, however, by the enchanting widow. Never before has a woman spoken as if she’s his equal—or challenged him to consider the lives of others.
In a city nearly ablaze with racial tensions quickly dividing the country, can two people worlds apart possibly find common ground?
