Yesterday Road

A coming-of-old-age beauty, destined to become a classic…

It isn’t often that the sheer beauty of a novel stuns me to such a degree that I’m unable to put into words just how lovely and richly satisfying it is. Describing Yesterday Road is like trying to put into words how I feel when I witness the most beautiful of sunsets or hear the power of crashing ocean surf. How do you describe the fragrance of a rose? You can’t. You must experience it for yourself.

Part of the magic of this novel is the way that it unveils and embraces the strength and tenacity of the human spirit. We all want to believe that good things come to those of us who do the right thing, no matter what the temptations we encounter as we travel through this life. We want good things to happen to the people of the world who struggle and strive and always take the high road. We are cheerleaders for those around us who are weak, fragile, delicate, and endangered. This novel is filled with heart and humor, pathos, and humanity. It is rich with tender moments that grab you and won’t let you go. It’s been a long time since I finished a novel and stared at the wall in amazement at what I’d just experienced. Kevin Brennan’s stunning writing grabs your soul like that of J.D. Salinger, Silas House, and Wiley Cash.
