Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Valentine to Faith is a work of fiction in the romance and contemporary drama sub-genres and was penned by author Victoria Foyt. Written for romance readers of all sensitivity levels, the romantic situations in the novel are not graphically portrayed. Our central protagonist is Angel del Corazón, who believes that her work raising her daughter to adulthood is her sole passion, and has put the terrible mistakes of her past firmly aside. Living on a small island off the coast of southern Florida, Angel resists temptation when newcomer Max arrives and wants to start a shell business. But when Angel’s daughter Faith begins to repeat the mistakes of her mother’s secret past, Angel must open up and shatter her own resolve to save her daughter, and indeed herself, from further heartache.

A deeply involved drama with some unique and unusual perspectives to explore, author Victoria Foyt presents a stunning and immersive work of fiction for readers to explore. I loved the Cuban cultural influences on the work and the credible and proud representation that Angel is given as a protagonist. It was wonderful to see the cultural intermixing with the religious in her belief system, adding this higher layer of fate and faith to the work which builds tension really well. Max is an affable male lead who grows on you over time, but it is the exploration, fears, and freedoms of Angel and her daughter Faith that really make this work shine. Readers searching for contemporary fiction with romance, emotional depth and all-out realism need look no further than the truly unique Valentine to Faith.
