He had no memories. He didn’t have an identity either. Even a name—as fundamental as it is—was out of the question, so they called him Kid. Everything was lost in the void within him. Rising from the ashes of his family home, only his instincts were there to guide him. And guide him they did—to the Haladays, then the Harrisons. But Kid forged on despite his amnesia and migrated with them to the Conejos area of Colorado. However, as they adapted to life on their newly established Double H ranch, trouble came again. Kid discovered a treasure trove near their new home, but it didn’t make life easier. Instead, it made them targets and turned their friends into foes. The two families have always held their own, but they know they must outsmart their much more experienced and organized enemies. Otherwise, they’ll meet the same fate as Kid’s previous family. Join Quinn O. Heder on A Search for Yesterday and find out what really happened.
Search For Yesterday by Quinn O. Heder is a western and coming-of-age-themed novel that whips up the reader’s emotions. It takes you on a rollercoaster of feelings like tenderness, rage, admiration, pity, and hate. Exciting and easy to read, I didn’t want it to end and wished it were longer. Although it was narrated from the first-person point of view, the author effectively conveyed the emotions of other characters apart from the protagonist. Somehow, this novel made me feel euphoric, and I couldn’t shake it off. I instinctively knew that I had stumbled upon a gem, and I'd recommend it wholeheartedly.
Search for Yesterday is one of those classic books you want to stock your shelves with and keep for your children. The pacing was just right, and the action sequences were even better. Even though I usually don’t care for lengthy descriptions of the setting, Quinn sneaked past me on this one, and I loved it because the scenery had a direct impact on the story. Search for Yesterday will elicit rave reviews from people who like westerns and emotionally engaging tales.
