From the introduction: Behold the child, by Nature's kindly law, Pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw; Some livelier plaything gives his youth delight, A little louder, but as empty quite; Scarfs, garters, gold, amuse his riper stage, And beads and prayer-books are the toys of age; Pleased with this bauble still, as that before; Till tired he sleeps, and life's poor ...more

This book will forever hold a soft spot in my heart. I was looking through our book closet, and I found THEIR YESTERDAY. I thought it looked dumb, but after I realized it was a first edition published in 1912, I got a little bit more interested. And then I saw the inscription in the front : RACHAEL POWELL FROM ED. Rachael Powell was my great-great-great grandmother. I feel a certain kinship with her now after having read this book that was once her.

But enough about my sentiments. The book. I rea

A nameless man and woman separately go through life's trials and tribulations (will he succumb to his earthly desires with a fallen woman? can she truly be happy as a successful businesswoman and not a wife and mother? [This is 1912. You can't have it all. You can only be one or the other.], etc.) to eventually cross paths and realize they were meant for each other.

Once again I've never read the paper back only my 1901 hardback in my extensive collection of old and rare books.
Wright achieved something I have never found with any other author a non rhyming yet poetic frame of thought from the first page to the last page of 311 as well as a story rigid that will hold anyone that's a romantic.

If Goodreads had the option of 10 stars, that is what I would have given this book.
I think this is my new FAVORITE Book of all time... at least for the next few months.
It is AMAZING! It is Profound! It makes you feel good all over when reading it.
It is the story of a Man and a Woman who discover 13 great things that make up a life.

5* Their Yesterdays is wonderfully old-fashioned and inspiring. This beautiful story sets forth the 13 truly great things of life, and how they happen in the lives of everyone. Nothing has been written before or since, that can compare with such a story of life and love.
an interesting sort of inspirational story. Wright is very unique in his approach, I've never read anything like it. The characters are never mentioned by name.
