    " I initially disliked this story's portrayal of "church people', but was pleasantly surprised by the way my expectations were exceeded in the conclusion. "

    " It was a faith based book about a drug addict who murdered the drug dealer. The addict's mother became involved when she found the evidence and made a bad decision about what to do with it, in order to save her son. This occurs a few years after her oldest son is killed in a violent crime. She is separated from a domineering husband and is struggling with making a living. Her one solace is her church and her friends there....and the neighbor who lives across the street. "

    " Leaving Yesterday by Kathryn Cushman is a absorbing novel about a mother's love. Alisa Stewart has spent the last several years coping with the brutal murder of her eldest son and her younger son's ensuing descent into drug addiction. Kurt has dropped out of his parents' lives, so when a police detective stops by asking his whereabouts in regards to a murder, Alisa is sickened with fear. Kurt's subsequent phone call from rehab alleviates her fears, and she is thrilled to have hope in a future for him again. But when the questions about the murder continue, Alisa has to decide just how deep her love for Kurt runs. Cushman tackles a difficult topic with compassion and incisiveness. The reader exults and aches with Alisa in her quest to save her son. There are extra layers to the story with Alisa's career as a speaker about grief recovery and her faltering marriage. The story flows so naturally it's hard to believe that this isn't a nonfiction memoir. Cushman is a superb author. "

    " I liked the idea of this book. The thought of how far you will go as a mother to protect your child is an interesting one. It was a little "cheesy" . One of those books that was interesting enough to finish reading, but not one I would be telling everyone I know to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 11/10/2013

    " A really good book! It demonstrates the fact that "the truth will make you free", even when it seems that the truth would imprison you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 11/1/2013

    " Listened to. A little to depressing for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 7/13/2013

    " Hard to read and hard to put down a compelling story. I would not want to be in the same situation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marvelle Morgan | 3/27/2013

    " I didn't think the story was too realistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy | 3/26/2013

    " This book is one that keeps the story moving rather quickly. You really want to look to see how it ends, but don't. As a mother, your interest is peaked in several instances. It does have a Christian status to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 3/11/2013

    " I listened to this book on cd and have to admit that few stories have affected me like this one. I couldn't help but put myself in this mother's place and wonder what choices I would make, given the same circumstances. It was very thought provoking and well done. "

    " Whew, excellent book. Which is why its 2:30 a.m. and I'm just finishing this book! I could totally feel for Alysa and thought what she did was probably something I would do for my child. Great read. "
