Unwed mother, Annabelle is no longer welcome in her reverend uncle's community. Not after the church folk discovered she'd been carrying on that continuous youthful affair with that young officer long enough to produce two daughters before she finally gained the courage to send him out of their lives. 

Now without a home, Annabelle is convinced she must find the man again and force that marriage he pledged but never
kept. Who else would provide her daughters the name,
home, security, and future they desparately need and to a soiled, aging woman over thirty with two growing children?

No, it's the only way.

Of course, that was before Major Carlton Radcliffe entered Annabelle Jordan's life. How was she to know she'd fall desperately in love with someone not only beyond her reach, but also loyal to the faith she's been fleeing. Worse yet, pledged to a wife and family of his own?

The choices we make don't simply affect us. They affect everyone who surrounds our lives. How do you look at the decisions you make?

This review is from: Decisions Book One: Say Goodbye to Yesterday (Kindle Edition)
Shirley Kiger Connolly is definitely talented! I am so happy I had the chance to review her first book, Say Goodbye To Yesterday, in her new fiction series, Decisions.I loved her her writing style, the characters she created and the emotion she pulls from her readers as they read this novel.

This is not an easy read. It's filled with heart ache, shunning, pasts better left forgotten, and lives that are forever changed when God becomes involved. As a single mom of 2 boys, I'm often looked upon as "different", so I could feel a lot of Annabelle's inner turmoil and pain. But, I loved the way Ms. Connolly portrayed Annabelle's mistakes and wrong doings. It really helped the reader to get a wonderful picture of the young mother.

Major Radcliffe's character was an absolute fantabulous addition to the story. The way Ms. Connolly portrayed his closeness with God was stunning. I absolutely adored his character!

I definitely suggest you check out this story. From heartache to love to forgiveness and redemption...that will leave the reader breathless. The best part of this story is that it's the first in a series so there's more to come! I am excited to see what Ms. Connolly has in store for her new (and old!) fans with the second book. Take a trip into time, learn to accept your actions and move on with new friends and a fantastic story line!
