Until I Found You is the latest novel by Victoria Bylin. She tells the story of Kate Darby, who must leave her promising career to go to the aid of her grandmother Leona, who has just experienced a stroke. When Kate meets Nick Sheridan on her way into town, her life is changed forever!
Earlier in her life, Kate had lost both of her parents and cannot bear to think of losing her grandmother. Not only has she met the man of her dreams, she also begins a journey to find God and understand that He alone will never leave her or forsake her!
It was interesting to watch Kate and Nick walk together through this major event in Kate's life. Throughout Leona's recovery, she writes down the tale of her own walk with Kate's grandfather and more importantly, with God! She wants to share this truth with Kate before anything else takes away her ability to.
I wish this story would have focused more on the story between Kate and Leona than on the romance between Kate and Nick; however, it was worth the time to read this tale!

An April Bride was written by Lenora Worth. This short novella tells the story of Stella and Marshall and their struggle with the trouble that comes their way when Marshall returns from war, wounded and lost. He cannot remember the details of his former life!
Walk with them both through these pages as they find their way back to each other, with the help of an awesome God!
I have enjoyed all the books in the A Year Of Weddings series so far; however, I found this book hard to read. The words just did not seem to flow as easily!
