I’m so excited about today’s post! The very first book blog tour I participated in here on Reviews From the Stacks was for When Beauty Blooms by Victoria Lynn, so this author has a special place in my heart. This year she is getting ready to publish the first book in a non-magical fantasy series, and I cannot wait to see it!

Synopsis: Violet lives her quiet life in her sleepy village, trying to remain as dead to the politics that are threatening their world as possible. She follows the rules, stays out of trouble and does her best to remain out of sight from the dreaded and overbearing Kingsmen.
With the new regent on the throne till the prince comes of age, the country has been thrown into a turmoil. Unlike the kindly king before him, the chancellor is overbearing, frightening and tyrannical in his rule. Taxes are bleeding the people dry and without the money or goods to pay, they have been forced into penal servitude and imprisonment by the Kingsmen, who show no mercy. The despair and fear that has taken over their lives has ruled out any level of hope.
When Violet stumbles upon an unconscious and injured Kingsman in the woods, despite the consequences, she is compelled to take care of the injured man. When he wakes and has no memory of his identity or past, she takes the only precaution that will keep her and her grandmother safe; she destroys the evidence of his past life.
If Violet’s lowly Kingsman regains his memory, will she survive the consequences? And will the Kingsman be able to live with his past life? Who will fight to free Elira?

About the Author
In her own words:
“I have an insatiable desire for truth, light and beauty.
Traveling to destinations of beauty created by our Heavenly Father, reveling in creative pursuits that fill me with joy, or pouring my heart into words of life are some of my favorite things to do.
I seek to bring the life giving words of my Savior to a dark and broken world that desperately needs to know of His sacrifice. I try to walk and live in the freedom that Christ has extended to me and I have a passion to encourage others in their God given destiny.
I love cozy days curled up with a hot drink in front of the fire with a good book or journal, time spent with the people who are nearest and dearest to me and adventures into nature.
A marketing and communications director by day, I moonlight as an author, journalist, seamstress and creator. In my twenties, I love spending time with any of my 8 siblings, exploring my native Michigan outdoors, and sewing gowns fit for a princess.”
I’m looking forward to this series and journey beginning this summer! Will you join me?
Until the next chapter,
