Yesterday's Sun: A Novel by Amanda Brooke

Yesterday’s Sun, a poignant debut novel from British author Amanda Brooke, finds a young woman having to choose between her own life and the life of her future child.

When newly married Holly and her husband Tom move into a charming old manor house in the English countryside, she couldn’t have predicted that a mystical moondial would change her life—and her destiny.

In the style of Jodi Picoult, with memorable characters, and tender, warm, prose, Yesterday’s Sun is a brilliant, suspenseful tale of free will versus fate; a heart-wrenching story of family and the risks we take to break from the past.

This story is poetic, beautiful, and heartbreaking. The sadness that this house has seen is almost unbearable. Holly is strong and vulnerable, the perfect main character. Tom is loveable and quirky, which brings a welcome relief from the burden Holly has to bear. The peripheral characters, such as Billy and Jocelyn, round out the story perfectly. Jocelyn is possibly the strongest character in the story. The choice that Holly is forced to make is a controversial one, and it taps into the constant battle of a woman’s right to choose. But, as the book points out, the battle is often between the woman and herself. The ending is bittersweet and utterly heartrending. This is a book that you’ll hug to your chest and cry over when you’re done.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings A book that is so hard to sum into words and yet hit me right in the heart.  A woman moves with her husband to a small cottage to start the next chapter of their lives and something in the garden makes her stop and pause and take a second look at what the future may hold.  Her ability to look at a possible future and make a decision was one of the key elements of this book; the other one is motherhood and what kind of sacrifice a woman makes to become a mother and throughout motherhood.
