    Definitions of Love

    In this heartwarming, lovely book, you get several definitions of love.....all of them so important to humanity! You get child to parent, parent to child, man to woman and vice versa, sister to sister, friend to friend and "surrogate parent" to "orphan child". All those people are combined into a wonderful book that has very relevant themes. That is why I love Victoria's books. She is not afraid to write about difficult issues effecting people today. Her characters are so realistic and they are dealing with real-life problems, yet trusting God to help them along the way. The main characters in the book are Mia and Jake but the other characters are also very much a part of the story too. There is Lucy, Mia's sister and Sam, who is Lucy's fiancé and the son of Jake's dead police partner. Also, Jake's parents are a vital part of the story too, Frank and Claire. Mia has had two broken engagements and has decided to forego relationships to concentrate on being a medical missionary in a foreign country....that is until she meets Jake. Lucy finds herself pregnant and she & Sam decide to get married in Las Vegas! Mia rushes to the wedding and meets Jake who is like the "surrogate father" to Sam because his mother was killed in the line of duty and was Jake's police partner. Mia and Jake try to decide what is right for Lucy and Sam but they want to make their own decision. Meanwhile, Jake's parents are dealing with the difficult daily life of Alzheimer's. Claire has it and it's weighing heavy on the family. It's decided that Lucy will live with her for awhile and take care of her - they instantly bond! There were so many things going on but at the same time it wasn't too much to understand. The book flowed well and the characters were fantastic! I had so much invested in them by the end of the book, I just wanted it to keep going. The last chapter of the book was marvelous! I would highly recommend this book. It's truly a book to get lost in!

    A great read!

    The Two of Us is the best book I have read yet by Victoria Bylin and that is saying a lot because they have all been great reads. What I always appreciate from her books are her realistic and relatable characters. Very early on, readers fall in love with Mia and Jake and root for them until the end. They are introduced under circumstances neither of them planned on and both have to move beyond their own pain from the past. Both of them have dreams that revolve around helping others, but their dreams are taking them in different directions. The story keeps your interest as you watch these two people try to figure out how they can live out their dreams and make this relationship work at the same time. In several reviews, I saw readers compliment the way Ms. Bylin handles the topic of Alzheimers. Jake's mother has Alzheimers and as someone who has watched her own mother-in-law battle this horrendous disease, I believe Victoria Bylin handles the whole topic with dignity and respect. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
