Eliza holds a secret that can rewrite the past.

Eliza Bontrager and Jesse Ebersol have fallen in love and are determined to marry, despite the belief of their Amish community and respective families that there’s a hidden curse―one that only shows up when an Ebersol and Bontrager marry.

Before the ceremony on the day of the wedding, Eliza’s great-aunt Rose gives her a family heirloom quilt and tells her that she may use it to change one event in the past. Eliza appreciates the woman’s heart, but she dismisses the strange conversation while keeping the beautiful quilt.

Several years later, mourning the loss of their third child, Eliza discovers her inability to deliver a healthy baby is genetic. Remembering her great-aunt’s strange words, she decides that if she can go back in time and reject Jesse’s proposal, she can save him the heartache of a childless marriage. Her sacrifice will allow him to marry someone else and raise a family. But once she puts her plan into action, she discovers the true impact of her decision―on Jesse and so many others within their community.

For fans of Amish fiction and the beloved classic 
It’s a Wonderful Life comes a gripping story about faith, family, and starting over from New York Times bestselling author Cindy Woodsmall.
  • Full-length Amish fiction
  • Stand-alone novel
  • Book length: approximately 104,000 words
  • Includes discussion questions for book clubs

My thoughts:  YESTERDAY'S GONE is a unique sort of Amish book More women's fiction than romance, it also dabbles in time-travel and fantasy. Fans of Amish fiction who like to think outside the box will love this book.  There are some good points such as decisions you make often tie into other people's lives in ways you don't always realize,  I enjoyed reading this book though parts of it was skim-worthy and parts were too weird for  me.  I couldn't help but hurt for the main characters.  Available now.  I was given a copy free and all opinions are my own.
