About the Book
Ginger Mooreland is stretched beyond her limit. Her beloved grandfather she cares for is showing signs of dementia and she is in danger of losing the Jukebox Café, which has been in the family for generations. Without the Jukebox she’s not sure how she can take care of her grandfather. The confidence that has bolstered her in the past is replaced with doubt.
Mike, the pastor of the local community church, has become a close friend to Ginger over the years. As their feelings for each other grow, Ginger questions whether she needs one more thing unsettling her life.
Convinced that his wife, Irene, who disappeared shortly after Pearl Harbor is still alive, Grandpa sends Ginger on an unlikely quest to uncover the truth. As Ginger traces the threads of Grandpa’s past and deals with her doubts about the present, she discovers far more than she ever expected for her future.
In My Opinion
While it took me a little while to get into this story, it picked up once the search for Ginger’s grandmother really took off
Ginger is a character I can relate to in the sense that she takes on too much. Her heart for others means she accepts any request to help even though she’s struggling with her relationship with her grandfather and his insistence she find his wife.
Angela D. Meyer is a new-to-me author, and I enjoyed her ability to combine a little bit of mystery and a little bit of romance (and Mike is one patient man) with a whole lot of real life. This Side of Yesterday is an excellent addition to the Mosaic Collection with its themes of faith and family.
