YESTERDAY - Love Transcends All
Anna Chen leaves her home in China  to come to the United States to attend college.The first time she goes  to church, she meets Greg  Miller,a tough southern boy, and together  they start to taste the fruits of forbidden love.

Despite their  different backgrounds, her guilt of abroken engagement, the  Chen family curse, the shadow of a  burning Ku Klux  Klan cross, and the terror of the Chinese Mafia, their passion  blazes.  From the cry of Tiananmen Square to the sigh of  Little Apple, Kansas, they learn how to love.

"YESTERDAY  is a deeply moving, beautifully told story that will  linger in your  mind long after the last word is  read," says Elaine Barbieri, best-selling author  of  "Eagle" and the "Dangerous  Virtues" trilogy.

"Once you  open YESTERDAY, you won't be  able to put it down. It is  spellbinding, filled with wit and wisdom, kindness and  compassion and joy and sorrow, with characters so real  you feel you've known them all your life. A must  read!" claims  Susan Christopher, Publisher,  Integrity Press, Inc., author of "Do What You Want,  But don't Lose Your Head."
