Book Review: Until I Found You

Until I Found You by Victoria Bylin

When I first started reading Until I Found You by Victoria Bylin, I groaned as I thought I was starting a typical “gorgeous girl meets handsome guy and are strongly attracted to each other and get married in the end” story. And it was — but the story taking me from the “meeting” to the “married” part kept me hooked. I couldn’t put the book down.

I love that neither of the main characters had perfect pasts. I loved Aunt Leona as she wrote her story for Kate while dealing with getting older and dealing with illness. The story of the condors wove in and out, adding another layer to everyone’s stories.

I could relate to the decision Kate had to make: how do you choose between two jobs you are good at and that you love doing – one in the city and one in the country? And where does Nick fit in with all this?

I loved watching them work through their faith – it felt real to me. Nick, as a fairly new Christian, is still learning to listen to and trust God. And Kate, as a non-believer, is trying to figure out how this God-thing all works.

Until I Found You is a great read. I look forward to reading more books of this kind from Victoria Bylin.

We would worry less …

When I was in high school, I read a lot of Ethel Barrett’s books. This was quoted in one of those books, and I really believe that this helped me survive high school. And college. And my 20’s…  I still quote it today after I’ve done something stupid.
