Yesterday's Daughter by Sallie Lundy-Frommer
Yesterday’s Daughter is an emotionally laden vampire romance novel woven with layers of betrayal, love and loss. Grace Stone, who later learns her true identity is Sapphira, is a loner who survives abuse in the foster care system after being abandoned as a child.
A brilliant student, she escapes from her brutal foster parents as a teenager and creates a life for herself. But, her life is little more than existence; plagued with questions about what she really is, a family that she has never known and the never-ending need to keep her differences hidden. She is alone and lonely, believing it will always remain so until Malachi appears in her life.
Malachi, a Guardian of the vampire communities, has searched for his life mate, Sapphira, for decades. He refuses to cease searching for Sapphira even though she is believed dead by all. Conflict arises over the decades between Malachi and his family because of his refusals to accept another mate. But his very soul drives him on to continue his search, knowing that he could not exist if Sapphira were not in the world, somewhere.
I received this book from the author to give an honest review!
This may have spoilers.
I truly enjoyed reading Yesterday's Daughter, there was action, comedy, suspense, and of course love. There were good guys and bad guys. Though the title did throw me off a bit on what the book was about I have nothing negative to say about it.
The cover looks great I love the eyes that are on it.
Yesterday's daughter is about a young woman named Grace but later on finds out her name is Sapphira (which I love the name by the way). Who is a vampire. She was raised in a foster home and never knew her parents. She works in a morgue and never knew of any other vampires. Until one day she comes home from work and finds Malachi in her apartment. Unknown to her at the moment, she is Malachi's life mate also known as a soul mate. And he knew of her parents. As their relationship evolves into love Sapphira learns that she is a guardian like Malachi and they along with the rest of the guardians fight harvesters. There is a mystery that the guardians are trying to figure out since someone has betrayed them but who could it be?
I do hope that Sallie chooses to write another book with Sapphira and Malachi because I want to know what other powers Sapphira has, and more of the relationship between them too.
My Rating: 5 books
