Yesterday Book Review
Pages: approx. 406 pages
Acquired: I received a free copy of Yesterday from the author in exchange for an honest review.
A fear of commitment based on a life of tragedy is Amanda's destiny, or so she believes. But then Amanda saves Mark Callahan from being crushed to death by a falling elevated train in Chicago's Loop.
Yesterday is a novel of love, loss, and a powerful sense of deja vu between a handsome policeman and the beautiful young woman who saves his life. It is also the harrowing tale of escape through the American Civil War, disasters, devotion, and The Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
In this historical romance, Mark Callahan fights through Amanda's rejection to prove that she will love again as she once loved - Yesterday.
Review: The book was definitely a sweet romance. Combines some elements of a few great books I've read recently. The past life regressions are growing on me. I was slightly disappointed that I couldn't always connect with Amanda on an emotional level. Maybe I've matured more than Amanda realizing death and tragedy always comes in bundles and is a part of life but I couldn't follow her tantrums to doorway of the closest asylum every time someone in her past life died. As for the ending of the book there better be a sequel catching us up on whether Amanda accepts her connection to Mark and what that means for their future. Overall, I really enjoyed Yesterday.
