Lila’s Vow is a Civil War set historical romance that tells the story of Jack and Lila Montgomery, two ordinary people who get caught up in an extraordinary time in our nation’s history.
This is what some of the reviewers had to say about Lila’s Vow.
Lila’s Vow is an extremely well written novel, but beyond being well written, it is also a story that touches the heart and soul. Ms. Wylie does a wonderful job of weaving the characters’ stories and lives together. I also loved the fact that she brought the love between Jenny and David into this story, which flowed seamlessly from Jenny’s Passion to Lila’s Vow and gave the feeling that this really wasn’t two separate novels, but one incredible account of the lives of real people. The author didn’t leave out Lila’s mother either, and I loved it that she brought romance and marriage to a woman of an age I can really relate to!
Don’t miss this book! And Ms. Wylie, when is the next installment coming? Please tell me there is a third book on the way!

Diane Wylie describes an outstanding tale that has the reader feeling compassion for the characters. With the sudden destruction of lives and homes, along with the smell of blood in the air during the devastating war, she depicts an era that breathes life in the pages. One can feel the trepidation and sorrow, even when the soldiers storm into the people’s homes. Lila’s Vow is a story that moved me with its emotions and in-depth sensations. When I read about Jack and the Andersonville Prison, it reminded me of the time I visited and practically could feel those who had been slain there. This is one extraordinary story that comes highly recommended and should not be missed.

“An absolute wonderful book, completely awesome!!!”
Diana Wylie has a gift for taking the harsh realities of life in the Civil War and interweaving her characters into the fabric. The battle of Gettysburg, the horrors of Andersonville, the confederate submarine Hunley all become characters under Wylie’s hands. Lila and Jack’s story is compelling, but for me, as wonderful as the love story is, it almost becomes secondary to the history. The Jack’s capture and incarceration in Andersonville and Lila’s stint with the Pinkerton agency show Wylie’s grasp of the many levels of life and experience in this tumultuous time in our country. I particularly enjoyed this story’s exciting and unexpected climax.
Lila’s Vow is a standalone book that fits perfectly with Wylie’s book Jenny’s Passion. Lila and Jack’s story interweaves with Jenny and David’s, making the two books a perfect gift set. If you’re a fan of historical tales spiced with romance, Lila’s Vow is definitely worth picking up.
I hope you’ll take a look at Lila’s Vow, which is available at Amazon, B&N, and from Vinspire Publishing.
