The story revolves not just around Mark & Amanda, but an antique grandfather clock Amanda buys and they are both inexplicably drawn too, that ties them to each other and their past in such a beautiful way. Amanda is a strong independent woman who has been hurt before and lost too many loved ones, and she desperately doesn’t want to take a chance on Mark- but he fights for her anyway. Mark is the hero, the kind of guy every woman wants to meet and fall in love with- strong, sensitive, funny, so endearing. Once you meet Amanda & Mark, they begin a journey of past life regression sessions that were so detailed and interesting, I could hardly put the book down!
Amanda fights the feelings she obviously has for Mark; plagued by losses she has had before meeting him. Mark, hero that he is, forges through Amanda’s feelings of loss and continues to fight for her while they both unravel the mystery of how they know each other. As you read about the past live regression sessions, you fall in love with both of them.
There was nothing I disliked about this book. From the first page, to the very last page, I was enthralled with the story the entire time. While reading this and after I finished the book, I wanted to know more about Mark & Amanda’s past lives, and I wanted to know what happens next! This would be a beautiful movie, the story was so vivid, and I could see the scenes while I was reading. The details in the past life regression sessions about the plantations and Chicago Fire were so descriptive, I really felt like I was there with them.
This book is well deserving of 5 stars- maybe (definitley more). Yesterday: A Novel of Reincarnation was a well written and well edited novel. While this is clearly a love story, I believe this book will appeal to a wide range of readers. I would read anything by Samyann in the future, and hope that a sequel to the story is soon to follow!
