Book Review - "Yesterday's Tomorrow" by Catherine West

By Jennifer Hudson Taylor

About the Book:
She's after the story that might get her the Pulitzer. He's determined to keep his secrets to himself. Vietnam, 1967. 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.

Book Review:
Yesterday's Tomorrow is different--not the typical Christian romance novel--but compelling and realistic in that it shows the temptation and downfall of mankind, but the redeeming power of God's love and grace. It is one of the few in it's genre (maybe the first) to be set in Vietnam. The characters are gripping--they grab your heart and don't let go. Even after the book, you're left thinking about Luke and Kristin and their lives. Catherine West has a fresh, new voice that readers looking for variety and something new will love. Highly recommended.
