Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stories have a beginning, a middle, and an end-or at least they do where Grayling lives with her extended family, who tell stories each day over tea. But Grayling's own story seems only to have a middle-until she is summoned to her mother's house and learns why she was left behind at birth. "A powerfully drawn setting and the beautiful portraits of the household's circle of women make this coming-of-age novel one of the best of the recent YA novels."-Kliatt. "A magnificent novel about unusual people whose personal recollections help them deal with sorrow as they celebrate life."-School Library Journalx.

Synopsis:

Beyond Yesterday

Every story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end. That's the way it is at grandmother's house where tea is served each day at four and tales of death and divorce, illness and abandonment are shared by grandmother's circle of friends. The women watch over one another and eveyone watches over Grayling — whose own story has never been told her to hear.But in a summer of many changes, fourteen-year-old Grayling encounters love and romance, joy and saddness...and the need to know her own story — from the very beginning.
