Teaser Tuesday - The Day After Yesterday

Seems like I usually read women's fiction, and that means the stories are almost always told from a woman's point of view. Although THE DAY AFTER YESTERDAY was written by a woman, in this case the protagonist is a man. His dramatic story kept me reading late into the night.


Cover for 'The Day After Yesterday'
My two sentences are taken from the book's opening chapter (1% on my Kindle). They are the reader's first introduction to the main character.

"The man stood just inside the doorway, blinking dazedly as if astounded by the diner's light and warmth. He was white-faced and soaked through -- he might have emerged from the sea, which of course was impossible given the storm-tossed tide."

(I gave it five stars.)

Amazon Synopsis: The events of a single night can change a life forever, as musician Daniel Whitman discovers when he loses his family and home.

Overwhelmed by grief, unable to find solace in his music or accept comfort from his friends, he flees up the California coast. Daniel thinks he’s leaving everything behind, but his journey will take him to the places and people that will help him find his way back.

The Day After Yesterday is a story of hope, friendship, and the redemptive power of music.

  9. This one was really intriguing. Put it on my download list. It's difficult for a woman to write from a male POV and the opposite is true as well. I'll be curious to see....but you always have the best suggestions! :)
