Yesterday’s Promise by Linda Lee Chaikin – Rogan Chantry faces danger from tribesmen, ruthless politicians, and his own family as he searches for gold in South Africa . In England , his beloved Evy is injured by a mysterious assailant. The greed and intrigue surrounding the diamond mines could very well drive them irrevocably apart.

I was given the opportunity to review these two titles for this Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing blog tour:

Beneath a Southern Sky Beneath a Southern Sky by Deborah Raney

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For those who follow my reviews or know me personally, you know that I am not a big fan of romance fiction and that I try to be very careful of what novels I do read. So imagine my delight when coming across this jewel in a simple "Value Fiction Blog Tour"!

This story is riveting as you witness the unthinkable happen to a young missionary widow who is both grieving for her husband and celebrating the new life of her daughter. I really enjoyed this tale of tragedy and God's amazing grace and strength to live through the hardest moments a human can imagine.

Due to a few reference remarks, I personally would only recommend this book to adult women and not teen girls.

Yesterday's Promise (East of the Sun) Yesterday's Promise by Linda Lee Chaikin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Yesterday's Promise is the second book in the East Of The Sun trilogy and yet it is possible to read it as a stand alone and still enjoy the story. Set in the 1800's, it's the story of aristocrat Rogan Chantry and Evy Varley and their love that is separated by mystery, blame, and intrigue until finally the truth sets them free. The plot is thick, the mystery deep, but if you enjoy historical romance and suspense this is a good read for a great value.
