Yesterday’s Daughter is an emotionally laden paranormal vampire romance novel woven with layers of betrayal, love and loss. Grace Stone, who later learns her true identity is Sapphira, is a loner who survives abuse in the foster care system after being abandoned as a child.
A brilliant student, she escapes from her brutal foster parents as a teenager and creates a life for herself. But, her life is little more than existence; plagued with questions about what she really is, a family that she has never known and the never-ending need to keep her differences hidden. She is alone and lonely, believing it will always remain so until Malachi appears in her life.
Malachi, a Guardian of the vampire communities, has searched for his life mate, Sapphira, for decades. He refuses to cease searching for Sapphira even though she is believed dead by all. Conflict arises over the decades between Malachi and his family because of his refusals to accept another mate. But his very soul drives him on to continue his search, knowing that he could not exist if Sapphira were not in the world, somewhere.
Yesterday’s Daughter by Sallie Lundy-Frommer is a fabulous paranormal romance novel; I have to say that this book was a real surprise. She created a world where I as reader would love to be a part of.
Grace Stone is a young woman who was found as a small girl with no memories of her family, so she grew up in foster homes. She discovered at an early age that she was different from other girl’s her age, so at age seventeen she got out on her own and made her own living and put herself to college. She thinks she is a vampire, because she is sensitive to sunlight and she has a craving for blood. Her life is about to change when she meets Malachi.
Malachi is one of the guardians of the vampire population and has been searching for Grace, his long lost life mate. Everyone thought she was killed as a child, but Malachi never believed that and spend his life searching. Now he finally found her and the only thing for him to do is tell her about her past and her true destiny among their people. But first they have to fight against the Harvesters, who set their eyes on Grace.
This novel is well written and had many things that I loved to find in a good read. This story was filled with betrayal, secrets, lost love and great companionship. Ms. Lundy-Frommer is a new author for me, but I’m definitely going to put her on my list for the future. The way she builds this world and created these fabulous characters is amazing.
