Goodbye to Yesterday Book Review

Here is an excerpt from the back of the book:
When Luke Stoltzfus loses his job at a furniture store in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, he is given an opportunity to learn a new trade made from his uncle who lives in Indiana. 
Despite his wife's reservations, Luke jumps at the chance and makes plans for a quick trip to Middlebury.  
Along the way, Luke meets with tragedy, and life as he knew it will never be the same. 
Despite all odds, will the faith and love Luke and Meredith share be enough to bring them back together again? Or will Meredith begin a new life with another?
First off, let me tell you that this is Book 1 in a series of 6, so if you want to know all that happens with this couple, and know what the ending will finally be, it will be told in 6 books altogether. Just wanted you to know that. Next, they are not very big books at all and I am not sure why the author didn't just put it all in one book (there are only 121 pages), but she must have had a good reason. It was written by Wanda E. Brunstetter.

When Luke does get laid off from the furniture store, he gets really grumpy and on edge and even though Meredith says she will go to work, he won't let her.  One day his uncle who lives in another town called Middlebury in Indiana, asks him to come so that he can teach him how to engrave tombstones. He wants to retire and leave the business to Luke.

Meredith does not want him to go but he just ups and tells his uncle that he will be there as quick as he can. She is holding a secret that she wanted to tell him but decided since he was leaving for 3 weeks, she could wait until he comes back to let him know.

Little do either of them know that the bus station that Luke decides to use has all kinds of criminals lurking about and they spy Luke right off the bat!

I am gonna stop here because like I said it is a little book and can't say too much without giving it away.  But, just because this book ends, doesn't mean it's the end of the story. Remember, the author has 5 more books to write this story and it could go all kinds of ways.

Happy Reading!

Since this is such a small book and I would love for someone to have it, I am going to run a giveaway and give it to one winner. If I get to review the other 5 books, I will do the same with all of those also.  Good Luck to Everyone! Good in the U.S. only.

I like both. The one advantage to a paperback is I can share it with my friends.

I prefer printed books, there is nothing like holding a real book in my hands. I do have a Kindle but hardly ever use it.

Paperbacks - most definitely.
