Review

TOMORROW'S SUN is the beginning of a new series by Becky Melby. It is wonderfully written with flashbacks of the past, a little mystery and a splash of romance. The story has many wonderful inspirational messages as Emily learns that God heals and forgives, and she needs to accept that today and not dwell on what tomorrow may bring. This was a great read; I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Tomorrow's Sun, the first novel in the Lost Sanctuary series, is a riveting story that keeps the reader engaged with its mystery and in-depth characters. I literally couldn't put this book down.
This is a beautifully crafted story that combines the past and the present and explores how the past has prepared, in some special way, to affect those in the future. The book has a captivating story-line of danger, romance and healing. Readers will come away from this story with fresh insight.

...Becky manages to weave an entrancing tale of long away happenings. This book is what happens when present intrudes on the past. It is quite an interesting idea for a book and I am glad I picked it up.
(Jenny Chaver Reviews by Jenny 2012-04-25)

This is a very fascinating story and one that will stay with the reader for a long time. These two people have absolutely nothing in common, but he stories that came out of those historic letters are truly inspiring and sincerely beautiful. This author has done a wonderful job of plotting and research, and the characters are very believable! A Must-Read!

Becky Melby did a great job at weaving the two stories together with complex characters and real emotions.

Nice story but sometimes confusing to follow the characters because she flips back and forth in time.

Tomorrow's Sun is Becky Melby's debut novel and the start of the Lost Sanctuary Series. Book two, Yesterday's Stardust comes out in the summer and I can not wait. This book was so good. It was a mix of contemporary and historical and it was fun watching the two stories merge together. I really enjoyed the parts of the story that deal with the twins, Adam and Lexi and them getting to know Emily. Also I find it fascinating reading about the underground railroad and how complex it was to help slaves escape. Becky Melby did a great job at weaving the two stories together with complex characters and real emotions. If anyone has read Susan Meissner's A Sound Among the Trees then you will love this book. Personally I enjoyed this book more and give it 5 stars or more if I could.

*I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

There is something about this book that captures your imagination. The first 8 chapters felt slow to me and I kept trying to read faster in an attempt to find out what happens and what brought us to this point in the book. There are so many unanswered questions for so long it makes you impatient to know.

Even with that, however, Becky manages to weave an entrancing tale of long away happenings. This book is what happens when present intrudes on the past. It is quite an interesting idea for a book and I am glad I picked it up.

Emily Foster may appear to be healing on the outside but nothing could be farther from the truth on the inside.

Flipping this first house is just one of the steps she is taking in her search for redemption.
What is so important to her to begin with might be forgotten in the face of new discoveries.
This house, the one thing she feels will help make restitution may be the thing that helps bring her to an altogether different place than she started out to find.

Her ornery contractor, Jake Braden, hates everything Emily stands for in the renovation of this historical home and wants to fight her on destroying what he knows to be important, but a need of finances will quickly help keep his mouth shut on his opinion.

When an amazing secret is discovered in the house, it may be just the thing to bring the two of them together with one quest in mind.
~~~~~~~~~~

I cannot even begin to tell you all of the nuances that this book has. It almost vibrates with the emotion that comes across as you turn each page of this captivating novel.

You can feel the despair and loss that each of these characters has dealt with or is dealing with.

This was an enjoyable book. The story was well written but the editing was terrible. Words were misspelled so often it would take you out of the story. Please, editors, check your work!

Emily is broken--emotionally and physically. To heal, she decides to flip a house. That is when she meets Jake, a contractor. He seems all put-together, but he is broken, too. He is also trying to get custody of his niece and nephew.

After butting heads, they acknowledge the attraction between one another. One thing that ends up bringing them together is the history of the house; the house was part of the underground railroad. Together, they unravel the mystery of the house and its former owners.

The book switches back and forth between modern day and Civil War times. Becky Melby does so effortlessly. The characters are real, and the plot is captivating. This is such a great book! I am adding it to my daughter's library, so she can enjoy it in a few years!

I loved how this was a modern book that had ties to the underground railroad and life in the 1850's and 1860's. More of the story took place in the present day, and the snippets of history came from the characters learning more about the house, the underground railroad, and the letters that Emily found in her house. All of the characters are interesting and well rounded. My favorite character is Lexi, one of the twins, as her antics are things I could easily imagine a kid doing.

This book is definitely a favorite! I give it 5 stars!

I received this book free from the author for the purpose of this review.

Emily comes to Rochester WI to flip a house she bought. She only plans to stay just long enough to get the job done and move on to her next house until she has enough money to pay a debit she really can never repay. She has no intention of making friends or getting close to anyone. She soon meets Jake who is a contractor and she hires him to do the work on the house. She soon finds herself getting to know Jake and and his family and finds it hard to not get close to them. A long the way she finds the house she has bought was once a part of the underground railroad back in the 1850's. Will this discovery help her let go of her past that will haunt her no matter how many houses she flips?

Jake is busy worrying about his niece and nephew and how to get custody of them over their good for nothing stepdad. When he meets Emily he wonders if she needs saved from something. He soon finds himself caring for her but will her past and his family problems be to much for them to work through?

I will say I enjoyed this book but it's a deep book with lots of things going on.

What I liked: I really liked the characters. The author did a good job telling their stories and explaining there feelings. I also felt this book had just the right amount of people telling the story. This book is brought to life by Emily, Jake, Lexi(Jakes niece) and Adam(Jakes nephew). I thought these different angles fit together very well to tell this story. The readers also get to go back in time to 1852 and learn about the underground railroad through the eyes of Hannah and Liam. There story was much shorter and was very much a side story that helped tell the main story but it was well put together and I wish we could have gotten to know them a little better.
