BOOK REVIEW: Leaving Yesterday

I’ve seen many websites lately that are calling Kathryn Cushman the new Karen Kingsbury.

With a similar style as Kingsbury’s and three novels under her belt, Kathryn Cushman is carving out a space for herself in the literary world. In her latest book, "Leaving Yesterday", Cushman tells the heart wrenching story of Alisa Stewart, a woman who has lost her firstborn son and is on the brink of losing another son, along with her marriage.

Attempting to hold what is left of her life and marriage together, Alisa struggles with a roller coaster of emotions as her son Kurt battles his drug addiction and a possible conviction for murder. At a time when she needs her husband Rick the most – they are the farthest apart. Though separated and attempting to share their daughter’s time evenly between two households, Rick sends mixed signals that he may still love her which confuses Alisa even more. Rick also questions Alisa’s faith and this leads to some custody issues with their daughter. Alisa finds herself standing on the edge of losing everything and everyone she cares about – all while desperately trying to keep her eyes on God and trust in Him. A story mixed with both heartache and hope that you will not want to miss!

Kathryn Cushman is a graduate of Samford University with a degree in pharmacy. After practicing as a pharmacist, she left her career to marry and begin a family and has since pursued her dream of writing. Leaving Yesterday is her third novel. Kathryn and her family currently live in Santa Barbara, California.
