If I Were a Lady by Bryl R. Tyne

Bryl Tyne is brilliant and I totally loved this story! It was a fantastically written story about Kendra who knows who she is. The problem is that the outside, or at least part of the outside, doesn't match what she feels and knows inside. At 29 she knew that she was a spinster, that she would never find a man who could love her as she was. I felt for her in her dilemma and mourned that she didn't believe that her dreams would be come a reality.

Enter Val who gave her hope, even when she fought it. I was mesmerized and totally involved in their story and I cheered and cried and raged along with them.

A touching and wonderful story that is completely fascinating and yet beautifully enlightening. This story is a favourite and will join my other re-reads.

If there was one thing that I felt was slightly off about If I Were a Lady, it was that everything between Kendra and Val happened really, REALLY fast. But that's the only thing and that was, by no means, a real problem... just one of those annoying little gnatty things.


  1. Just stopping by to say thanks again! Happy you enjoyed Kendra and Val...more to come, guaranteed! ;)


  2. Excellent new Bryl... I'll be waiting; perhaps impatiently, but all the same....
