When she comes across a box containing a glass orb and strange mechanical objects during the renovations, Holly doesn't know what to make of them. Until it becomes clear that they belong to the stone sculpture Tom unearthed and plans on using as the centerpiece of their large gardens in the belief [...]

    2. This review can also be found on Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell-blog.This is a difficult review for me to write. While I liked the book, I had several issues with it.This is a gentle novel. It’s a slow moving story about a young couple who move into their new home and are on the cusp of new phase in their lives: They are about to start a family. Only, real life demands like work and economy conspire to keep them apart. Tom’s new job demands he travel far away and for long periods of time. And th [...]

    4. Gostei bastante desta obra, não só pelo conteúdo, quefoi bastante interessante, mas também, e sobretudo, pela mensagem que passa. Este livro fala de escolhas e das suas consequências, para tudo o que fazemos algo vai ser ganho, mas também teremos que perder algo, pois a vida prova-nos todos os dias que não podemos ter tudo, que temos de optar. Algumas decisões são particularmente difíceis mas, quando são feitas com amor, são as decisões certas.

    5. When Holly and Tom Corrigan move into their country house outside London, it's the completion of Holly's five-year plan: Find a boyfriend; find a gallery to exhibit her artwork; get married; establish a client base to buy her artwork; earn enough to give up her day job; and move to the country - and she's still got six months left of that five years. Now Tom, a thirty-two year old investigative journalist, broaches the idea of a new plan with super-organised Holly: have a baby. But Holly remembe [...]

    6. What if you lived your lines by plans, where nothing ever happened if it wasn't on the five year or five month plan that you had made, or where you felt uncomfortable if it didn't work out the way that it did, and it was just something to make you feel more secure in life. Well this is exactly what the book goes on about but in a more thought provoking manner, in a sense and matter that makes you consider the importance of life and how often we take it for granted, not considering the very fact [...]

    7. This is one of those books that had someone not sent me either a copy to read or told me it was good, I wouldn’t have read it. To me the cover isn’t all that eye catching and the blurb seems like it spells out the entire story. I was pleasantly surprised when I got done reading it and realized that I really enjoyed this book!This is another of those great authors that really get the whole picture across. The world she creates is so vibrant that I had no problem picturing the idyllic country [...]

    8. What if you were faced with a choice between saving your own life or that of your unborn child? This is the premise behind Yesterday’s Sun.

When Holly discovers a moondial in the overgrown garden and its strange crystal mechanism, little does she suspect that it will change her life forever. For the moondial has a curse.Each full moon, Holly can see into the future – a future which holds Tom cradling their baby daughter, Libby, and mourning Holly’s dea [...]

    10. Where I got the book: e-ARC from Edelweiss.This is yet another novel with a GREAT story idea and writing that fails to deliver. Holly has to choose between perfect baby Lily and perfect husband Tom, because she's found out (by conveniently stumbling across a magic moondial) that if she gives birth to Lily, she'll die (because of some weird logic connected with the moondial itself).My issues with this book:- the simplistic writing. I should go back and find a quote, but I'm feeling lazy this even [...]

    11. This book was not my typical readlooking into the future etc doesn't usually get my votebut I loved every minute of this story it kept me guessing right up till the end.Def worth reading :)

    12. This was a book that I found on the ‘Just Returned’ shelf of the library during one of my lunch time sojourns to the library.The blurb caught my interest – ‘How could you ever choose between your own life and the life of your child?’. I assumed it would be Jodi Picoult-ish, as TGND might call it. But then I had never heard of the author or the book, so decided to give it a try.After bringing it home, though, I started to have, well, not negative, but some sort of reluctance to pick it [...]

    14. In Yesterday's Sun, Amanda Brooke tells the story of Holly Corrigan and her struggle to choose between her own life and that of her potential child. Holly is granted an image of the future, a future in which she dies giving birth. This, however, seems to be only a potential future, not something absolutely fated. Holly, then, must decide whether to conceive this child, knowing she will die giving birth, or to simply continue her relatively happy life without a child.Yesterday's Sun While Brooke [...]

Infinitely readable and totally engrossingat's what this book was to me. And I can not really tell you that much about it! I will share a few choice bits, though, perhaps just enough to tease you into wanting to read this book. Oka young coupleHolly and Tombuy an old country cottage a [...]

    16. Die Geschichte an sich hörte sich vielversprechend an. Eine junge Frau, die einen Blick in ihre Zukunft werfen kann. Man hätte so viel aus dieser Geschichte machen können. Doch vor allem der Schreibstil und die Entwicklung der Handlung machten das Buch nach dem ersten drittel fast unlesbar. Zum Schluss habe ich nur noch Quergelesen. Ich hätte es weggelegt wenn ich nicht die Hoffnung gehabt hätte, dass das Ende evtl. alles wieder wettmacht. Ich wurde leider enttäuscht. Mit das furchtbarste [...]

    17. Holly and her husband Tom move to the countryside to begin a new life.

As Tom travels more often Holly’s secret visits to the moondial become more frequent and more heart-breaking as she discovers the child she will have but knowing that her d [...]

    18. A sinopse sugere algo forte e dramático, no entanto, no decorrer do livro deparamos sim com algo intenso, cheio de alma e regado com um toque de magia. O enredo é encantador, juntando em simultâneo a fantasia e dilema da uma vida, apreender a amar incondicionalmente. É um livro repleto de muitas emoções, desde uma tristeza que leva à caída de uma lágrima, à alegria, à ternura, à amizade, ao perdão, ao amor e principalmente ao sacrifício por alguém que amamos e que nos mostrou como [...]

    20. I loved this Book, The Story is very Good and it made me cry in places. 3/4 trough the Book I want to read the end, but then thought I better not it will spoil it. I brought this Book as a 2 for £7 at tescos and I did read the back of the book and thought, that will do for going on a train to see my Daughter, when I got Home that day and had a few min. to spare I started the book and could not stop, I read the whole book in 2 days and thought about it a long time afterwards. Its really an amazi [...]

    21. Um livro dramático e intenso, cheio de alma e sentimentos em que cada decisão deve ser tomada com o coração.Até que ponto estamos dispostos a ir para salvar a vida de alguém que amamos??

    22. Parts of this book were brilliant and other parts not so much which is why it only got three stars from me! It's an interesting idea for a book with some good twists. Worth reading.

    23. Um livro sobre escolhas.Um livro forte e ao mesmo tempo leve.Nos faz refletir sobre o amor em cada escolha que fazemos, em cada SIM e NÃO que decidimos usar em nossa vida.

    24. This was a great story. You can tell the author has experienced the same life events as the main characteroughts and feelings are very "real". I'd recommend this book.

    25. Holly and Tom move to the country and find their new home has a moon dial in the garden. When the moon is a full moon, Holly is able to time travel which, learning this, lost my interest really! However, the story did continue to interest me as I wanted to find out how, after seeing the vision that the couple would have a baby girl, Holly would have to sacrifice her life for this. Holly befriends an elderly neighbour Jocelyn who she confides in about the visions and J offers to help change the f [...]

    26. I loved the setting. It's set in a village in England, which is one of my dream places to live. I loved that the story was about becoming a mother. I could relate to the character in some ways, though she was much younger than me and an artist. I liked the premise of the story, but overall it was slow. I wanted to love it, but there just wasn't enough movement to keep my interest. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it.

    27. A book about knowing the future and having to make choices in their life. I have always felt that life sends us on a path where there are many choices of roads. To know where a road ultimately goes would definitely be a scary thought.

    28. InhaltDas junge Ehepaar Holly und Tom ziehen aus der Großstadt London aufs Land, in ein altes Torhaus, das früher einmal zu einem herrschaftlichen Landsitz gehörte. Holly ist Bildhauerin und entdeckt im Garten eine seltsame Vorrichtung, diese hält sie zu erst für eine Sonnenuhr, doch in Wirklichkeit handelt es sich um eine sehr alte Monduhr.
