A fear of commitment based on a life of tragedy is Amanda's destiny, or so she believes. But then Amanda saves Mark Callahan from being crushed to death by a falling elevated train in Chicago's Loop.
Yesterday is a novel of love, loss, and a powerful sense of deja vu between a handsome policeman and the beautiful young woman who saves his life. It is also the harrowing tale of escape through the American Civil War, disasters, devotion, and The Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
In this historical romance, Mark Callahan fights through Amanda's rejection to prove that she will love again as she once loved - Yesterday.

This isn't the type of book I normally read, but I was pleasantly surprised. If you are a history buff then I highly recommend you read this. Amanda has had a lot of tragedy in her life, it's like one thing after another which leaves her with a fear of giving herself to anyone. She just can't put herself out there to get hurt again. Then she meets Mark Callahan, the police officer she saves from being crushed to death by a falling Chicago L train.
Something about this man keeps drawing her to him, it's as if she knows him, but she's never met him before. She just can't shake the feeling she gets from him, like an instant connection.
This is a well written historical romance, Samyann brings everything to life for you in her writing. Her description of every detail makes you feel as though you just walked into the pages of the book. Even though we journeyed through different eras the book had an easy flow that I really enjoyed.
