The distance from Colorado to Maine is not far enough to escape the memories.
The time I've been away is not long enough to heal the pain.
I left Colorado, determined to discover who I am outside of my grief, but I fell apart along the way.
I'm lost again.
When Jude follows me, I can't turn him away. But I can't let him in, either.
Not all the way.
I know when he finds out my secret, the one I keep hidden in the darkest part of my heart, he’ll leave me.
Like I was before.
4 Star Review by Ashley
I feel like I've been waiting ages for Back to Yesterday to release and it was worth the wait. I didn't know what i wanted to do more- hug or shake Whitney Barbetti for the things she did to me. You absolutely have to read Into the Tomorrows before diving into this one because you will be quite lost if you don't.
I found it very brave to focus so much on Trista in this book because so much of what I loved in book 1 was Jude. That being said, it worked. I went into Trista's journey with open arms and oh how many times did they just want to wrap her up. That poor girl was trying so hard to find herself. It seemed it was one step forward and three steps back but the one thing that never changed was how much her heart longed for Jude. My goodness Jude- that man and his patience and gentle soul. I adored his character.
I can't leave out the original poetry that Whitney Barbetti composed for this book. It was heartbreaking and encompassed so much of Trista's inner turmoil and unwavering hope for something more from herself. I will say that I did find the ending a bit rushed. I wanted that touch more that would really help me feel Trista's growth. BUT everything came beautifully full circle and left me with a contentedness in my heart.

About the Author
I am a wife to one and a mom to two humans and one cat. I have a deep and abiding love for nachos - especially the kind with the liquid cheese, like from Taco Bell (sorry). I run on less than four hours of sleep thanks to copious amounts of Diet Coke. (Note: this paragraph is not sponsored by anyone except my hungry stomach.)
As a Navy brat, I grew up all over the country, from California, up the east coast from Florida to New England and Colorado. I currently live in Idaho, where we have lots of potatoes and windmills.
I write character-driven New Adult novels, heavy on the emotional connection. I LOVE love. I love writing about broken characters who find their soul mates.
