THE LAND OF YESTERDAY REVIEW

Awhile back I shared the cover of THE LAND OF YESTERDAY. I finally read the book and would like to share my thoughts with you. Enjoy.








THE LAND OF YESTERDAY

By K. A. Reynolds



From the lovely cover of THE LAND OF YESTERDAY to the final pages, K. A. Reynolds has written a magical story of a family and a house, a house like you’ve never before seen. The Land of Yesterday is where all souls go when they die. It, too, is a land like you’ve never before seen. This is a story about the death of a young boy and the effect it has on the mother, father, and sister, as well as on their most unusual house.


It took me a while to get into what was happening to the characters, but when I finally did, I understood Cecelia Dahl and what she had to do. This is a sad story about life and death, love and forgiveness. And for those that have lost family members, especially young ones, they most likely will understand Cecelia’s emotions and reasons for attempting to bring her brother home again.


I think middle grade, tween, and teen readers, as well as adults will enjoy reading K. A. Reynolds stories. It would be a nice addition for school libraries, public libraries, and your personal library. Happy Reading!



Have a great week!

    1. I imagine you can, Yvonne. This story is fantasy though, with things that do not really happen. A good read. Have a restful day with Tennessee. (Love his name.)

  3. Sounds like one that many can relate to indeed. As death sure comes to us all.

    1. I had trouble trying to understand what was going on at first, Jess. The subject of death for young people is touchy, at least to me. But the unusual characters made it more of a fantasy and not so real. Thanks for stopping by.
