This tender love story pulls the reader back to previous lives and a time richly elegant. In modern day Chicago, deja vu draws together a handsome mounted policeman and the beautiful young woman who saves his life. Yesterday is also a harrowing tale of escape through the American Civil War, the heart wrenching love of slaves for their young white charges, and The Great Chicago Fire of 1871. A life of tragedy is Amanda's destiny, or so she believes. But, in this historical romance, Mark fights through Amanda's rejection to prove that she will love again as she once loved - Yesterday.

Yesterday by Samyann is a beautiful love story sprinkled with mystery and intrigue. This book had me immediately. Amanda has lived a life full of loss of those she cares for; her parents, fiancé. She fights tooth and nail not to get involved and love any more people but Mark worms a way into her heart. She saves his life and from that moment the connection between them is evident. Neither can place where or how they know each other but somehow, somewhere they do. Enter the old clock in the picture. Amanda deals in antiques and becomes mesmerized by an antique clock. The connections between her, the clock, and mark catapult her into trying regression .These sessions slowly bring her to the answers. The pacing and suspense of this novel was absolutely perfect; not too slow nor rushed. Just enough to keep me pondering what was going to happen next. The regression took Amanda back to civil war and post war days in the South and North. Samyann did a truly exceptional job writing down the accents and conveying a full picture of the novel as it unfolded. I was intrigued from page one. There wasn’t a dull moment in the read. Fantastic!
Acquired: I received a free copy of Yesterday from the author in exchange for an honest review. Rating: 4/5 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.
