Professor Andy Spencer has just received a book deal from a reputable publisher. But he has grave problems. He is stuck while the publisher puts pressure on him. He can't find the information he needs to justify the theory that the Nazis' invasion of Russia wasn't Hitler's idea. While he works on finding the information he needs to justify such a thesis, something strange begins to happen. He starts having vivid dreams of being in Nazi Germany, dreams where he gets hurt and is shot at. But then when an elderly lady who survived the Holocaust shows his psychotherapist, Nate, a picture taken during the Nazi era that looks so much like Andy, she knows there is more to Andy than an obsessive writer with a book. Who is he, really? The answers are surprising.
Yesterday's Tomorrow is the first entry in the Just a Dream series, and while the book is listed as sci-fi, it has strong hints of the paranormal and time travel. Guy Rosmarin is a great storyteller and Yesterday's Tomorrow is filled with many plot layers. The suspense is strong and, as I read on, I couldn't help wanting to know when Andy's dream would intersect with his real life. The narrative has strong psychological underpinnings, with a protagonist that is as mysterious as he is complex, but one that readers will definitely want to follow. I loved this story and the unique idea that a character could be unwittingly investigating himself. It is intelligently plotted and written to a satisfying denouement.

Yesterday's Tomorrow: Just A Dream, Part 1 is a historical time travel novel written by Guy Rosmarin. Harvard professor Dr. Anderson Spencer had a theory about World War II and was researching the possibility of an internal coup that was behind Hitler's disastrous incursion into Russia. He had spent the last seven years researching it, and the publisher who had hoped for a best-selling follow-up to his first history book was getting impatient. The FBI was also interested in one of the contacts Spencer was using for his investigation, a German named Karl Heime. Some of his friends were concerned about his future and offered ideas for alternative career opportunities befitting the expertise of a man whose knowledge of the Nazi party and the Third Reich was unparalleled. Spencer was determined to get to the resolution of his theory, one way or the other. But something strange started happening to him. His world would suddenly turn dark without warning, leaving him conscious but insensible of where he was or what he was doing. It would come and go, often at the worst possible moment, such as when he was standing before his lecture class as they waited for him to finish so they could go on spring break.
Yesterday's Tomorrow is a riveting and thought-provoking entree into the realm of historical books written about World War II and the rise of the Third Reich. I've long been a student of that conflict and was intrigued by the premise offered by Rosmarin's storyline. Dr. Spencer's time travels into Czechoslovakia are darkly real and stark, and scenes from his real life and those past life episodes merge eerily and seamlessly at times, making this a most compelling read. Rosmarin's characters are authentic and real. Those moments Spencer shares celebrating with his friend Nate's family at their Passover Seder are unforgettable in their warmth and sense of tradition and history. Likewise, his dream episodes, set in war-time Czechoslovakia, have an immediacy that is intense and powerful. This well-written and enthralling story kept me on edge and eager to read on, and I'm quite pleased that it's only the first book in the author's series. Yesterday's Tomorrow: Just A Dream, Part 1 is most highly recommended. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
