Product Description

He fought to seek his fortune.

Would he lose a greater treasure: the love he left behind?

As the son of the squire of Grimston Way, aristocrat Rogan Chantry has fought hard to win his independence from Sir Julien Bley and the British South Africa Company. Now, his pursuit of a mysterious deposit of gold, marked on a map willed to him by his murdered uncle, Henry Chantry, is challenged by a new complication: the impending British colonization of South Africa. Can Sir Rogan find the gold in the midst of escalating tensions among the native tribesmen, the missionaries sent to win them, and the new colonists?

Meanwhile, Evy Varley, the woman Rogan loves back in England, is headed for a brave yet dangerous confrontation with Henry's killer-but at what price? With so much against Rogan and Evy, a reunion seems improbable, if not impossible. Can yesterday's promise hold them faithful to the hope of future freedom and a victorious love?

    I love historical fiction and this series put you back in south africa during the diamond mines. Loved book one and tow, having trouble finding that 3rd book in this series. I guess it is out of print. Hopefully I can find it soon. I highly recommend this series.

    I'm so glad they reprinted this book! I bought the first in the series and enjoyed it so much I had to buy number two and find out what happened. Linda Chaikin writes a gripping story that keeps the reader interested but doesn't move too fast, and I love the way she involves so much history and fact into her writing.

    Greed can be an ugly thing. It can take over your life and ruin your chance at true peace and contentment. Many times it also prevents us from truly loving those around us - our family, friends, spouses and the Lord. Several characters in this book are obsessed with wealth and power. It has taken over their lives and they will stop at nothing to get what they want. Rogan Chantry is caught in the middle of this conflict. Will he be able to seek his fortune, a mysterious deposit of gold that is marked on a map inherited from his uncle, and be untainted by the drive to possess it all? Will it cause him to lose the love he left behind? His love, Evy, is left behind to confront a murderer and recovery from a horrible tragedy. As she seeks to unravel a mystery - what will it cost her and the man she loves?A story full of intrigue and adventure that pulls at your heartstrings as you root for these two main characters. It also caused me to ponder the things that so easily distract me from family, friends and most of all the Lord. We are drawn to success and maybe even wealth and power (at least to a certain degree), but at what price are we willing to pay for these things?Will Rogan and Evy's promise of love endure through the many trials and temptations that challenge them from every direction? You will have to read Yesterday's Promise to find out? :-)

    I had a terrible time reading Yesterday's Promise. It was very detailed and I would read a sentence over and over to stay focused. It is book #2 in a series and I don't think it would have helped to have read the first book. This story is set in the late 1800's to early 1900's. I do like history stories, but this one was just too far fetched and hard to follow for me. The story is about the son of a squire fighting to seek his fortune against his uncle. The woman he loves is in another country and the story goes back and forth and from earlier to present and was very confusing.
