Format: Hardcover
This book starts out promisingly enough. An affluent man in South Carolina has a daughter named Callie, ostensibly an only child. He adopts Bode Jessup, so Callie can have a brother. He also brings two young girls from disadvantaged families, Brie and Sela, to be Callie's playmates, but they end up spending most of their time in the Parker household.
As Callie's mother is a sick woman and her father is a busy man, the roost is ruled by Mamma Pearl, a larger than life African American woman. She becomes the center of the universe for these three children, who look to her as a mother figure and love her dearly. Mamma Pearl also loves and cherishes these children, sacrificing her life to their well being.
When they are all young adults, however, intrigue and turmoil bubble under the surface, as their true feelings for each other begin to emerge on the eve of Callie's wedding. The catalyst for a great emotional catharsis is the tragic accident that leaves Callie in a coma on her wedding day. As events unfold, shocking family secrets are revealed, ripping the blinders from their eyes, as all was not what it seemed.
The book, which started off promisingly enough, begins to head south, as a series of revelations, increasingly implausible, are divulged. Moreover, the personalities of the characters seem to change at the drop of a dime, depending upon the circumstances. This tends to render them two dimensional, as there is no real character development. This further highlights the implausibility of the storyline. Moreover, some of the surprises in store for the reader are positively ridiculous. The secrets about Bode and Callie are especially ludicrous, making the book almost laughable.
Take a pass on this book. If you are a die hard Fern Michaels fan, however, borrow this book from your local library rather than buy it.

This book starts out promisingly enough. An affluent man in South Carolina has a daughter named Callie, ostensibly an only child. He adopts Bode Jessup, so Callie can have a brother. He also brings two young girls from disadvantaged and dysfunctional families, Brie and Sela, to be Callie's playmates, but they end up spending most of their time in the Parker household.

I listened to the audio tapes of this book and really enjoyed the first few chapters. Then when the car accident finally happened I was bored for two tapes, then, started to dislike everyone. Callie seemed nice enough at first and then after the accident, everyone hated her, then the inconsistencies began. Bode became black??? But not black really b/c he had white parents and was raised black even though everyone in town knew he was white and Callie was black???? Most mixed marriages I've seen and know the child doesn't come out fair w/ blond hair?? So, how was Callie fair and Bode dark-skinned, etc. Then Brie and Sela hated each other at first and always argued together, then move in together and become 'sisters'. Bode describes Sela as a wonderful, peaceful person....then later says she's a piss-ant...Hello? I began to dislike all these people and thought Callie was the way she was only b/c of Mama Pearl. She was a totally different person at the end then at the beginning, and so I wished them all luck and threw the tapes in the trash. Read Celebration if you like this author, but avoid this one.

I used to love Fern Michael's books but "Yesterday" was such a disappointment. All the characters were unlikeable, the conversations unrealistic and overall the book was plain boring. It was the worst book I've read all year and I've read a lot!
