I'm a big fan of Randy's books he writes all sorts and I really enjoy the ones I've read which have a little magic as they cross the thin veil between this life and the next. In this book we meet Dave Burke, grieving husband and father. It's been two years since he lost his family in a house fire. He lost it all and turned to drink. He's now been dry for seventy-eight days, he has changed his job and he goes to friends who are "safe".

There are still huge social mine-fields that Dave avoids and

This little novella was an absolute heart-breaker.

A contemporary with an edging of what I would call magic realism, we follow our protagonist, Dave Burke, who is living with not only terrible loss but the guilt that he did nothing to prevent it.

This very much character-oriented story is told sensitively with graceful flashbacks and an accessible writing style. That said, what really makes this story is the characters.

Mixter's characters feel so credible despite the short space into which they'r

I would like to thank Randy Mixter for gifting me a copy of this book and although this was the first book I have read by this author and it won’t be the last. Dave Burke cannot forget his past.

Dave Burke is going through hell, a recovering alcoholic, guilt and loss his constant companions. His story is a sad and tragic one. But all is not as it appears.

This is a very moving and compelling piece written with much feeling and delicacy and, even though it’s a relatively short novella, I found it very easy to become involved in Dave’s life and feel for the pain he is suffering. His character is skilfully written and believable, as are the secondary characters.

The ability to capture a reader's interest and hold it throughout a short story or novel is something all author's struggle with when they sit down and write that short story or novel. And of course, it takes much more than just keeping a reader's interest. You also have to be a good story teller.

In Randy Mixter's The Road to Yesterday, he not only captures your interest from the very first page, he also tells a remarkable and heartwarming story that you can stop reading once your start. Mixter
