A Pocket Called Past

Rate this book
An emotional story of secrets, regrets, lies and love.

These words are not my own. They have been folded deep into my psyche since birth. I choose those words I speak carefully but the words, which escape onto paper, are wild, untethered and free. They tumble into the world with an abandon I do not feel.

Words can change everything.

Rosie’s discovery turns her already troubled world upside down.

Jacob has his own burden to carry; yet when he and Rosie meet he finally finds someone who can understand his pain.

Sarah has kept her secret hidden for so long but feels it’s time to let her truth out. Mary, who is nursing her own broken heart, listens to Sarah’s story as it unfolds into something she will ultimately be left holding.

Lenora waits for her daughter to come and find her.

A Pocket Called Past shows us what consequences secrets and regret can have in our lives and how we go about picking back up the pieces.

Most enjoyable first novel! Yvonne made her characters really interesting and intriguing and I couldn't wait for the next page and chapter. I loved the short easily consumable chapters.
I look forward to more from this author and I hope everyone who reads A Pocket Called Past enjoys it as much as I did!

I just read this lovely book in one sitting. I was immediately hooked by the characters, the flashbacks, the changing POVs, and the mystery within. Yvonne Anderson's writing style is so sweet, thoughtful, and open. I hope to see more from her!
