I loved this book and the companion book. I did not want to put my tablet down.The journey of the characters from beginning til the end of book two kept me intrigued until the end of the book. I like christian romance books and read a lot of them. I have read many of Grace Livingston Hill's books and Love Inspired books. These books have earned a place in my favorites list.

Yesterday by Amanda Tru is a highly entertaining time travel novel with many twists and suspense. This is book one of the Yesterday Series so there will be more reading enjoyment to come. I look forward to the other novels in this series. The story of Hannah and Dr. Seth McAllister continues in the novel, The Locket, the second title in the series. Time traveler Hannah encounters her first experience when she is driving to Silver Springs Lodge that her sister, Abby, and her husband run. Snow makes the night driving hazardous, and she is running late. A screaming, blood-covered woman stumbles onto the road to flag her down. With her limited 3-hour CPR training and first aid class, Hannah tends to the woman and settles her into her car while she searches for the woman’s family and car. Unbelievably, Hannah rescues all of the family—even the father whose weight was far beyond her small size. She drags him on a tarp uphill out of the ravine and lifts him into her vehicle. Her plan to get them to the lodge as quickly as possible goes without a hitch. Once at the lodge a man summons a young doctor who just happens to be staying there. He enlists her help to examine the family of four and tend to their injuries while they await the rescue team. Once the situation is under control, Hannah and Seth McAllister, a young medical student, get to know each other and find themselves attracted to each other. The last that the exhausted Hannah remembers is that someone carries her to bed so that she can get much-needed rest. Awakening in the morning, Hannah makes her way into the kitchen where she finds her sister. Abby has no idea what Hannah is talking about when she starts asking about the family and Seth. Clearly, something is wrong with someone’s perspective, and Hannah soon realizes that she is the only one with this memory. No injured family, no Seth, no helicopter landing, no snow. Her sister’s husband remembers a story about a bad accident that happened near the lodge years before they took over. Research provides a newspaper account of a mystery woman who saved the Lawson family five years before. Thus begins a search for the medical student, named Seth, and an answer to what she had experienced. Little does she know that Seth could not forget her and has been trying to find her. I highly recommend this novel to those who enjoy time travel stories. It will not disappoint. A definite page-turner. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.

I just finished reading Yesterday by Amanda Tru. Wow - what a great book that kept me interested AND I can’t wait to read the next one in the series. Ms. Tru was awesome in that she included an excerpt from the second book at the back of this book and that made me want to continue reading the series even more…she definitely knows how to keep the reader interested with unanswered questions and suspense. Excellent writing! I’ve never read a book about time travel before so I wasn’t sure how I would like it but I was intrigued enough with the story line to want to try. I’m so glad I did. Not only was the story great, but the spiritual undertones spoke to me as well. Ms. Tru described how God has our life in His hands from the very beginning and is always there, guiding and directing if we let Him. It brings comfort and security - knowing that even if we make mistakes, He will fix them if we rely on Him. I can’t wait to see how the whole series unfolds. I received this book for free from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

Yesterday by Amanda Tru is the first book in the Yesterday Series. Through a crazy unexpected time traveling experience, Hannah arrives on the scene of a horrible automobile accident. Though she’s not rescue personnel, Hannah manages to help a family in what would be an otherwise fatal accident. And in that moment, Hannah manages to change history and the future. There’s a lot packed in this short book. Romance, suspense and adventure are all present as we ride with Hannah Kraeger through time. Wanting to allow God to use her in ways to help people, yet also wanting to pursue the man of her dreams, Hannah finds herself caught in between. I enjoyed Yesterday and it ended in a way that made me want to read the rest of the series. You’ve no doubt heard that you should never judge a book by its cover and although that’s true, I must say the cover of this book is beautifully done! I received this book from the Book Club Network and the author in exchange for my honest opinion which I’ve provided here.

Wow! What an amazing book! I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Hannah is driving to her sister’s lodge in the mountains when she comes upon an accident. She miraculously is able to pull the family to safety and drive them to the lodge where they get lifesaving medical care. But the next morning, on awakening, Hannah discovers that the accident occurred five years ago – even though she still has the scratches on her arm! And what happened to the handsome medical student, Seth, who helped her “yesterday”? What stood out to me most was that although this book was about time travel, it was made believable by the disbelief the characters themselves had that time travel was possible. Hannah herself says, “For some reason, God used me to save that family. He’s God. I guess he’s allowed to break his own rules of science to accomplish his purpose.” I found the time travel fascinating – what would Hannah change because of her travelling? I can’t wait to read the next book and I highly recommend this one!! I received this book from in return for my honest opinion.

Yesterday, book 1 in Yesterday series**** by Amanda Tru Hannah Kraeger comes across a car accident along the mountainous, snow covered terrain of the Sierra mountains and saves the lives of a family—a husband, wife and two children—injured in the accident. The next morning, Hannah discovers no one has heard of an accident—yesterday, but there was one five years ago. Hannah discovers her yesterday is really 5 years ago....not yesterday. She has no idea that she has changed events in the past. Hannah has traveled back in time. Will it happen again? Can she stop it? Is this God's plan for her life—time-travel? Dr. Seth McAllester met Hannah at the hospital and has looked for her for years...5 years. It's as if she simply disappeared, vanished. Where is she? Why can't he find her? When Hannah time-travels again, she and Seth are re-united. He is over joyed to finally having found her—his angel of mercy. She is confused even more. What “time” is she in now? What is she supposed to do? She convinces Seth that she is from the future and he tries to help her to unravel the mystery of why and how she time-travels and who she actually is before the strange ability costs her future, the man she loves and even her life. I don't normally read fiction about time-travel, but something drew me to this book. I am so glad I read it, it was surprisingly good. It was not difficult to keep up with what “time period” Hannah was in. I found myself rooting for Hannah and Seth to be able to find each other again and somehow stay together. The suspense kept me on the edge of my seat and kept me up late, as I wanted to find out what happens next. The secondary characters were fun to watch and added to the story line in many ways. Even in time-travel, love is found. The romance between Hannah and Seth was unique, in that they came from different time periods in history but somehow connected in the same time period. But will they be able to actually stay in the same time period, together forever? Or, will they forever be pulled apart as Hannah is taken into another time period? ~~I received a paper back copy of this book from TBCN and the author for my honest review~~

An Intriguing Time Travel Fantasy I typically don’t read a lot of fantasy, even Christian fantasy, but this book intrigued me, and the synopsis sounded fascinating.  I found that I really enjoyed this break from my usual genres and I would happily read this author again. This book is written from a first person perspective and we view the entire story through Hannah’s eyes.  That is unusual and difficult to do well, but Tru succeeds.  It was a very effective storytelling technique and plunged me into the action from the first pages.  I found myself unable to put the book down for very long, utterly engrossed in the developing tale. The characters are realistic and interesting.  Hannah is confused as she tries to understand what is happening to her, and her panic issues give her a depth that I did not expect in this short novel.  Seth is an honorable man, keeping his promises even if it means the loss of a dream.  The secondary characters are harder to pin down as they change a bit with the alterations in the timeline, but I would say they are better understood as the tale progresses, making them more fleshed out as we went along.   The idea of time travel and its repercussions is very complex and sometimes hard to wrap my mind around, but the author seems to have thought things out well—it all made sense, even if it took me a few times of rereading certain passages before I could understand it!  I hadn’t anticipated the author addressing the immense responsibility that might be involved in time travel or the moral and ethical dilemmas in how Hannah’s choices shape the future.  And I appreciated the affirmation arising out of it, that God knows our mistakes and can use them to bring about something beautiful. That’s not to say that this book was perfect; it had its hiccups, but it didn’t ruin the story for me.  There were several typos in the first few chapters, which was frustrating.  There was one spot where the term “Zen-likeness” was used, and although I understand the idea the author was trying to convey, I would have preferred the use of a different adjective given that zen is a concept from another religion.  It also seemed artificial to me that Seth and Hannah had such a strong connection so quickly into the story, but shock and being thrown together in an intense situation can form a relationship rapidly. Despite these minor issues, I would recommend this book for teens on up, especially those who might be fascinated with the idea of time travel, which is explored in depth throughout this novel.  And I loved the moments of fairy tale meets reality—for example, their quickly formed, strong love contrasted with the flaws they find in each other as they really spend time together.  This is a very enjoyable quick read and I look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series.   I received copy of this book from the author through The Book Club Network in exchange for this honest review.

I just want to say that I absolutely LOVE this series.  They are fast reads and the books are short.  I am currently reading the last book TOMORROW.  I purchased this first book because it sounded interesting and it only cost 99 cents . Once I started reading, i decided to purchase the entire series.  The story flowed and was hooked immediately.  I love the characters and the story.  Each book flows right into the other.  I was hooked at the first line and even though Tomorrow is darker and I didn't think I would like it -- I am again hooked!!  I will miss these characters when I finish this book.  I feel like I know them and they are real..   I really, really am enjoying this story....  Now having said that, after reading further about Amandra Tru - I found out these books are geared to the "Young Adult".....  wow -- I am 56 and am loving it....  Maybe I am a young adult at heart......5 Stars!!  too short is the only negative

Yesterday Book one by: Amanda Tru I really liked this time travel book. It grabs you at the start and don't let go till the end. A young lady , Hannah Kraeger ,  saves a family during a snow storm who had went off the road into an incline. There was a woman , her husband and two children. She had to see if they were still alive. Hannah's phone had no signal. She had to get down to them, but how was she going to do that ? She gets them all up and carries them to the hospital and she meets this Med Dr. Seth McAllister. She was in bad shape and pretty upset . Dr. Seth was trying to comfort her and told her he did not know how she did it ,but that she probably had saved their lives. When Hannah wakes up the next morning no one had heard of the accident. They said that there was no snow storm last night, but they  had heard of a family that had went off the road five years ago. Well Hannah's five years ago had been last night. No one will believe what she is telling them .. They want to carry her to a doctor. Had she went back into time and saved this family, and did God send her back to save them ? Did she change the course of this family? She again goes back into time and she has no warning when this will happen. Each time she does this it takes a lot out of her . Dr. Seth looked everywhere for Hannah after the first time. He could not find her anywhere. Do they ever meet again? Some wants Hannah to go and have test run, but she does not want people thinking she is crazy. I really enjoyed this Time Travel Suspense Romance and can't wait to read part two ,The Locket. I was given a copy of this book for my honest review and i have given it.

Perhaps a few Creative Writing courses would help. The story had great possibilities but the way it was written was very disjointed. As it is written I would suppose it would appeal to the Y A crowd but if you are older than 24 I would pass on this one.
