Review of Catherine West's Yesterday's Tomorrow

About Yesterday's Tomorrow
She's after the story that might get her the Pulitzer. He's determined to keep his secrets to himself.
Vietnam, 1967. Independent, career-driven journalist Kristin Taylor wants two things: to honor her father's memory by becoming an award-winning overseas correspondent and to keep tabs on her only brother, Teddy, who signed up for the war against their mother's wishes. Brilliant photographer Luke Maddox, silent and brooding, exudes mystery. Kristin is convinced he's hiding something. Willing to risk it all for what they believe in, Kristin and Luke engage in their own tumultuous battle until, in an unexpected twist, they're forced to work together.
 
My Review:
 
This book was amazing.  I am not a fan of the era of the Vietnam War, but this story was great.  Catherine did such a great job with this, that it felt like I were really there.  She told a great story with a lot of compassion, but all the realism also.  I rooted for Kristen and Luke the whole way through the book.  There journey was a very harrowing one.  I don't think I have ever read any books set during the Vietnam War, so I don't know a whole lot about.  Catherine did a very good job portraying what it would have been like to be there.   Then when Kristen came home, Catherine did a great job with all the struggles she had to face.  The ending was great, I wondered how it would end.  This was a story I almost couldn't put down.  Great job.
 
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
