Yesterday's Tomorrow by Catherine West
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Young journalist, Kristin Taylor, goes to war-torn Vietnam in 1967 without a plan to continue her father's legacy that took his life when she was young. She quickly gets a job working with a hard edged photographer, Luke, who slowly becomes an aquired taste. He & his friend Jonno teach Kristin some survival skills, give her some laughs, and surprises, amid all of the devistation and heart ache of war. Behind Luke's back, Kristin uncovers secrets about him that make for an amazing story and puts all of their lives at risk as certain people don't want the story leaked out into the general public. Will Kristin betray Luke's trust just to further her career and risk losing his love forever, or will she choose to follow her heart before it's too late?
I loved this book! It was a romance, yes, but SO much more than just that! It was the perfect blend of realistic love, war, friendships, relationships, history, action, conflict, suspense, and God. It was so well done and I highly recommend it to all!

Do you smoke the briar's fire fueled by faces and names?
On the bridge of your lust, will you pay the small toll?
Would you gain the whole world in exchange for your soul?"
-Olde Order: Wickflicker
Ohhh! It was simply amazing and unlike any other book I've read! It's one of those few books that I'd like to read OVER AGAIN, now that I know how it ends. You'll have to read it yourself to know what I'm talking about because you're not getting it out of me;)
This book is a wild ride of satan, sin, internal and external spiritual battles, greed, lust, power, and addictions, all with the devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other! It starts as two best friends, Gat & Caleb go in search of party supplies only to find a creepy Wickflicker in the dark, dank labyrinth of a basement instead. Gat falls easily for the sinister lies of the Olde Order demon while Caleb isn't as quick to believe in his trickery as he recalls the wise words of his father as a child. Gat quickly learns the hard way that having it all comes with consecuences at a price he can't afford to pay, while his friend is quickly succumbing to certain devilish temptations in the dark. Then hold on for a finale you won't see coming as the "Lil' devils sport such a wicked grin." -Wickflicker
