Yesterday's Sun: A Novel
Yesterday’s Sun, a poignant debut novel from British author Amanda Brooke, finds a young woman having to choose between her own life and the life of her future child.
When newly married Holly and her husband Tom move into a charming old manor house in the English countryside, she couldn’t have predicted that a mystical moondial would change her life—and her destiny.
In the style of Jodi Picoult, with memorable characters, and tender, warm, prose, Yesterday’s Sun is a brilliant, suspenseful tale of free will versus fate; a heart-wrenching story of family and the risks we take to break from the past.

A book that is so hard to sum into words and yet hit me right in the heart. A woman moves with her husband to a small cottage to start the next chapter of their lives and something in the garden makes her stop and pause and take a second look at what the future may hold. Her ability to look at a possible future and make a decision was one of the key elements of this book; the other one is motherhood and what kind of sacrifice a woman makes to become a mother and throughout motherhood.
