Yesterday's Sun, by Amanda Brooke.
In this unusual book with a touch of the supernatural, a young woman, through the intercession -- or interference -- of an ancient sundial, is given a glimpse of her own future, and finds herself forced to choose between her own life and the life of her long-desired child.
At first I found the whole sundial bit a little hokey and unbelievable. The story itself, however, was so compelling, and the lives of the characters so interesting, that I found myself unable to stop reading despite being out of my comfort level, and soon it no longer seemed hokey, but perfectly believable. I also loved the fact that there was very much a mystery within a mystery, as the main characters learned about the history of the sundial and also about each others' pasts. Ultimately, I could never have guessed the ending, and I absolutely loved it. I could not have imagined -- and had not imagined -- a more perfect and satisfying ending to this story. This was a very well done tale, and one that was immensely enjoyable. I highly recommend this book to readers of all genres. You won't be disappointed if you give this book a try. 5.0.
I received an electronic review copy of this book from the publisher. This did not affect my review in any way.
