Product Description

Kate Darby has grown from an orphaned girl into a high-powered advertising executive living in Los Angeles; Leona Darby, her grandmother, is the only family she has. When Leona suffers a debilitating stroke, Kate has no choice but to return to Meadows, the rural California mountain town of her youth, where she meets Nick Sheridan. A freelance writer for the newspaper Leona owns, Nick is also a former womanizer who has found God and made a pledge: no dating for one year. The camaraderie between Kate and Nick is easy from the get-go, and Kate's presence soon challenges Nick's vow. As comfortable as life becomes in Meadows, Kate still has responsibilities in LA. And then there is God. Nick is committed to his faith while Kate struggles to believe that God exists. Bylin, who has written several historical romance novels, pens a strong character-driven story. Deftly handling the faith element, she brings an authenticity to Kate's search and Nick's steadfastness that will resonate with readers, regardless of their religious persuasions.

Publisher's Description

Finding each other was only the beginning . . .

When Kate Darby swerves off a mountain road to avoid hitting a California condor, she ends up trapped in her car, teetering on the edge of a cliff. Terrified, she breathes a prayer that changes her life.

It's Nick Sheridan who comes to Kate's rescue. Nick is handsome and confident, and he seems to develop a habit of rescuing her, but Kate is in town only until her grandmother recuperates from a stroke. She's not planning to get involved with one of the locals.

Nick is a reformed veteran of life in the fast lane, a new Christian, and a travel writer. When he sees a car dangling on the edge of a cliff, the daredevil in him jumps into action. He doesn't expect to be swept off his feet by the car's occupant. He's made a vow--no dating for a year--but keeping that vow is going to be a lot more difficult now that he's met Kate Darby. . . .

    This was a really lovely novel. While it may start with the typical "heroic knight swoops in to save the damsel in distress", the rest of the story felt very fresh and not your average romance novel.

    Nick and Kate are very likeable characters. Kate is passionate about her job, but is willing to put it on the line for family. Nick is always ready to lend a hand and help someone in need. I related to Kate especially as someone who also likes to be in control. I'm not your "fly by the seat of your pants" type of girl. Schedules, organization, and plans are my friends. To me, when you have control, you have predictability, and when you have predictability, you have stability - at least, that's what I tell myself. And I do believe there is some truth to that. However, the other truth is that one cannot have control of absolutely everything, and when something goes awry, for me, it can be very difficult to accept the fact that unexpected events can happen and to be able to deal with it as it throws (or so it seems) everything off-kilter.

    This book was a good reminder to me that God has everything in control - like the childhood song, "He's got the whole world in His hands". When life throws curveballs, the unexpected or unexplained occurs, our Father in heaven is our strong fortress, Who we can run to with all our fears, doubts, and struggles. No burden is too hard for Him to bear, and no mess is too complicated for Him to untangle.

    I really enjoyed Until I Found You. I loved Kate and loved how much she had grown as a spiritual person throughout the book. Leona was my favorite character though. She could be so funny at times. This is a great book for all of your emotions. It really can make the reader laugh and it could make them cry. This is the first book I have read by Victoria Bylin and it won't be the last.

    5 stars.

    I received this from bookfun.org for my honest opinion which was given.

    Until I Found You by Victoria Bylin starts off with Kate Darby swerving off a mountain road in California. Trying to avoid hitting a California condor, she now finds herself trapped and in a dangerous predicament. Nick Sheridan happens to be traveling that way and rescues her. Kate was only traveling that road as her grandmother Leona has had a stroke. Needing to care for her, Kate has put her career on hold in LA until her grandmother can recover. Her grandmother actually runs the town newspaper which Nick writes for so Kate and Nick will be working together.

    Nick is a new Christian who had previously lived his life in a way that felt good to him. He was struck to a new low when he found out that his careless living had hurt someone and the consequences were more than he could bear. So due to his past mistakes, he made a vow to God and himself that he would not make any big decisions for one year nor would he date. He only had 6 months left to go when he met Kate.

    Kate has lived a lifetime of hurt. Her father died when she was young and her mother died while Kate was attending college. Kate likes to be in control and only really trusts herself. She is extremely worried about her grandmother and wants to do her best in caring for her. She begins to have feelings for Nick, but she does not share his faith.

    This is a story of a man who loves a woman and realizes he cannot be all she needs. This is a story of a woman who must relinquish control and learn to trust. And of a grandmother who understands her granddaughter's hurt and journals her own personal faith crisis. This story has a lot of great nuggets of truth sprinkled throughout and I look forward to the next book by Victoria Bylin. I received this book from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.

    Until I Found You by Victoria Bylin

    I really enjoyed this book. Victoria Bylin is a new author to me, but I plan to find more of her books. I found her style of writing to be fun, full of faith and realistic. You are sure to fall in love with the storyline and characters. Nick Sheridan comes to the rescue of Kate Darby more than once. He is not proud of his past as a bestselling author, but as a new Christian has the chance to save Kate's grandmothers newspaper and write about the important things. Kate puts her career on hold to help her grandmother Leona when she has a stroke. Nick may be her hero but wants so much more. I was intrigued by all the information on Leona's beloved condor's. I give Until I Found You 5 stars and highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys Christian, contemporary and romance fiction

    I want to thank the author Victoria Bylin and publisher Bethany House for bringing good clean Christian books like this one to readers like me. I would also like to thank The Book Club Network Inc. for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review.

    (I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review of it.)

    Here's what I really liked about the book:

    In this day and age, when careers and freedom are so valued over more important things, we see a realistic struggle with what is the best course to take. Big city vs. small town, helping family and friends vs. success in the world's eyes, etc. The support of Nick's Christian brother as Nick, a brand new Christian learns what it means to be a Christ Follower, is great! There is a real, honest progression of struggles and learning process as he figures it all out, what his life should look like now and how he can help Kate in the same way once she makes the same decision he has.

    But this part bothered me:

    I've lived in California for 10 years now, and have never heard anyone from here say "1-5″, which they use in the story. That's what people like me say that are from Oregon, so I thought is was weird that they don't call it "The 5″ as everyone here does, (I like authenticity).

    Anyone with a fascination for Condors will probably enjoy the story as there's quite a bit about them here. I hadn't heard a lot about them before this. :>

    All in all, it's a pretty good story! See for yourself!
