The Two of Us

I’ve been a Victoria Bylin fan since first reading her historical inspirationals, and several of her books sit on my Keeper shelf.

Of Men And Angels

Like a kid in a candy store, author Victoria Bylin can't stop herself from using every simile and metaphor she has ever encountered, and her story - a simple romance between a troubled man and a gentle, brave woman - gets bogged down in her narrative. Of Men And Angels has the kernel of a compelling ...
