Women need not be intimidated by the title, West From Yesterday. It is my opinion, as a woman who loves various genres of fiction, that West From Yesterday is an atypical historical novel with universal interest. It has a "touch of class" that women will find very appealing.
In spite of raw and bone-chilling graphic scenes, Tucker Clairborne's humanity outshines the gruesome challenges he encounters in his soul-searching pursuit of self-enlightenment. Tucker has a conscience and it affects his dealing with the people he meets along his journey. It is an excellent read. Mr. Harrison captures the essence of life in a post Civil War Era in a manner that will haunt readers long after they close the book.”
