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.

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!

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!

I was looking forward to reading this: a nice modern day story and learning more about the Underground Railroad. Sadly, I found it very unsatisfying. The historical part was very shallow - nothing I hadn't learned back in grade school. There were a few bits about communicating through quilts and rugs, and 1 journey downriver, but I was hoping to learn more. The story with Liam, Hannah & her father was also spotty at time - the author would drop a few details, but then jump to another point in the story without developing those little tangents. If they're not worth developing, why mention them at all?

The modern element wasn't handled well, either. I had the most problems with the character of Emily. One moment she's emotionally devastated and literally curled up in the fetal position, and then an hour later she's mostly OK? The timeline with pretty murky - it was hard to tell if weeks had passed or only a few days, so perhaps making it clearer that her recovery took more time would make things more believable. There was a fair amount of info on her friendships with several women, but how were the issues between them resolved? Again, too much time spent developing a little offshoot but then dropped. Jake was a little too good to be true; a "flaw" would have actually improved his character. I also don't understand why the idea of "ghosts" was repeatedly introduced. After the rambling of the book as a whole, the ending felt rushed and superficial.

Yes, there were some formatting/spelling issues with the Kindle version, but much less than I've encountered in other novels; it was mildly annoying, but if the story had actually been more engaging, I probably wouldn't have minded.

Bottom line: not the worst I've read, but wouldn't recommend to anyone. Deleting from my Kindle library so I don't make the mistake of picking this one up again.

A read that will take one by the hand through the trials and tribulations of Emily, Jake, Serena, Hannah, Liam, Lexie and Adam! All individuals impacted by situations that separated them from each other but ultimately brought them to each other by history or a piece of it! Either present or past, history played a role in the strength that each individual gained as a result. An interesting time and well spent!

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!
