Yesterday's Promise by Linda Lee Chaikin (Book Review - Not Really)


Title: Yesterday's Promise
Author: Linda Lee Chaikin

Publisher: Waterbrook Press


I really don't like it when I find I can't finish a book. Unfortunately, this book just wasn't for me. It had a lot of peripheral characters that had me confused as they didn't seem to relate to the story - Now maybe they did further into the book and I just didn't give it a chance. . . Another contributing factor to my confusion may be because I tend to read more than one book at a time. I liked the synopsis of this book, so maybe I will try it again at another time when I am not reading so many at a time... So I am going to leave you with the blurb:

He fought to seek his fortune. Would he lose a greater treasure: the love he left behind?

As the son of the squire of Grimston Way, aristocrat Rogan Chantry has fought hard to win his independence from Sir Julien Bley and the British South Africa Company. Now, his pursuit of a mysterious deposit of gold, marked on a map willed to him by his murdered uncle, Henry Chantry, is challenged by a new complication: the impending British colonization of South Africa. Can Sir Rogan find the gold in the midst of escalating tensions among the native tribesmen, the missionaries sent to win them, and the new colonists?

Meanwhile, Evy Varley, the woman Rogan loves back in England, is headed for a brave yet dangerous confrontation with Henry's killer -- but at what price? With so much against Rogan and Evy, a reunion seems improbable, if not impossible. Can yesterday's promise hold them faithful to the hope of future freedom and a victorious love?
