Tomorrow's Sun by Becky Melby and Giveaway

About the book:

Faith Reaches across the Centuries

Her fractures have mended, her scars faded, but Emily Foster can’t move on until she makes restitution for a past mistake. Flipping houses seems like the path to her goal. Yet, instead of finding a door to the future, the 1840s house she plans to remodel opens windows to the past.

Contractor Jake Braden hates Emily’s plan to modernize the old house, but the cost of fighting for guardianship of his late sister’s twelve-year-old twins forces him to take the job anyway. When a hidden door and faded love letters connect the house with the Underground Railroad, he and Emily embark on a mission to uncover the fate of young lovers.

As Emily and Jake unravel the long-forgotten love story, words of faith in the face of fear inspire, convict, and draw them to each other. . .but will they be prepared when faced with the greatest test yet?

My Review:

Tomorrow's Sun is Becky Melby's debut novel and the start of the Lost Sanctuary Series. Book two, Yesterday's Stardust comes out in the summer and I can not wait. This book was so good. It was a mix of contemporary and historical and it was fun watching the two stories merge together. I really enjoyed the parts of the story that deal with the twins, Adam and Lexi and them getting to know Emily. Also I find it fascinating reading about the underground railroad and how complex it was to help slaves escape. Becky Melby did a great job at weaving the two stories together with complex characters and real emotions.  If anyone has read Susan Meissner's A Sound Among the Trees then you will love this book. Personally I enjoyed this book more and give it 5 stars or more if I could.  

*I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
