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 brought 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.
