Leaving Yesterday ~ by Kathryn Cushman

Leaving Yesterday by Kathryn Cushman is a powerful story about a prodigal son and a mother’s love. Most of the time there is nothing stronger than a mother’s love, nor fiercer than a mother’s protection. When the sins of the past merge with a life now changed, how far will she go to protect her child? The choices are not always clear and forgiveness doesn’t always remove consequences. This is family’s journey of bad choices and forgiveness and of despair and hope. It is engaging, authentic, and a story that encompasses many of the issues facing families today.

This book was provided to me for review by Bethany House Publishers.


Leaving Yesterday
By Kathryn Cushman

A Powerful Drama of a Mother's Unfailing Love

When Alisa Stewart's son checks himself into rehab, he seems to find a healing faith that’s real. Yet the hope she feels at this news is cracked when a policeman shows up asking dark questions about a murder of someone Kurt knew. Alisa is terrified. Her boy is different now. He's changed and deserves a second chance. But as his old life refuses to stay buried, Alisa finds herself facing an impossible choice: keep silent and keep her son or risk everything in a quest for the truth.
