Blurb from the Author:
Independent, career-driven journalist Kristin Taylor wants two things: to honor her father's memory by becoming an award-winning overseas correspondent and to keep tabs on her only brother, Teddy, who signed up for the war against their mother's wishes. Brilliant photographer Luke Maddox, silent and brooding, exudes mystery. Kristin is convinced he's hiding something.
Willing to risk it all for what they believe in, Kristin and Luke engage in their own tumultuous battle until, in an unexpected twist, they’re forced to work together. Ambushed by love, they must decide whether or not to set aside their own private agendas for the hope of tomorrow that has captured their hearts.
My thoughts- I have had teachers who served in the Vietnam War and I have read books about the war, but this book made me feel as if I was in Vietnam living with Kristin and Luke. I laughed with them, cried with them, and felt their fears.
After Kristin returned to the states she suffered from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). This helped me realize what one of the latest families (husband served in Afghanistan) has been going through.
Catherine West did a tremendous writing Yesterday’s Tomorrow. I highly recommend this book. This book is for everyone and has danger, romance and heartbreak. I want people to learn more about the Vietnam War and what the people went through.
I am going to tell my friends, family and librarians about this book.
