Goodbye to Yesterday by Wanda E. Brunstetter. Luke and Meredith had not been married long when Luke loses his job. It’s a good thing that he had saved money before he got married because between his savings and what little bit he can make from his woodworking projects it is all they can do to make ends meet. Luke has been looking for jobs but with the economy he just cannot find anything. They have both been praying for something to come up when Luke’s uncle calls with his plans to retire and offer of selling his company of engraving grave stones. Luke feels that it is the answer to prayer but Meredith is uneasy about it. Luke convinces Meredith to take the chance and Luke heads out with most of their savings to learn this new trade in Indiana.
I liked this book though it was awfully short (only 121 pages). If all 6 parts of this series are this short I am wondering why it isn’t broken up into just 3 parts or even just one book. When one reads the back of the book it appears that the story was intended to go further into the story as it explores whether or not Meredith and Luke will be brought back together and when the book ends they are only separated because of a trip in which Luke meets with tragedy but there is no talk of their not being together. It is priced at $6.99 on the back of the book and though there are better prices out there if it is intended to be sold at that price I am not sure that it is worth the price. It is only a little longer than a pamphlet. Other than the size I think this is a good story line which will be good when the plot is more fully explored in the next parts of the series.
I received this book from Handlebar Central for this review.
