    This is a book that will make you stop and reflect on the meaning of love and the ways we show love. Adam is shocked to find a letter from his wife of twenty years that tells him she is leaving him. He has always prided himself on providing for his wife and daughter, and worked extremely long hours to do so. He never thought that his work would be the reason why his wife would leave him.

Adam is shocked to find a letter from his wife of twenty years that tells him she is leaving him. He has always prided himself on providing for his wife and daughter, and worked extremely long hours to do so. He never thought that his work would be the reason why his wife would leave him. Lindy’s letter speaks of his neglect, that she tried talk to him over the years, but now the time had come for her to take action. The letter is the wake up call he needs to finally see that his business is not the most important thing in his life....Lindy is. Lindy has made a new life for her and her teenage daughter in the beach town where the family used to take vacations. She is beyond surprised when her estranged husband shows up six weeks after she left to tell her he has sold their home and the business. Adam is not sure if Lindy will allow him back in her life, but after some soul searching and some guidance from God and a pastor, he is determined to win her back. Lindy wary of opening up her heart again to a man that neglected her and took her love granted. Will she allow them to have a second chance at love? This book expertly illustrates that love is not just about the words or feelings, it’s about the ways we show love, and the actions we take. It doesn’t have to shown in grand gestures, but rather in small, thoughtful and meaningful ones. Love requires constant nurturing, just like a houseplant, or it will wither and die. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I received an ARC of this book and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

    Adam has been largely ignoring Lindy for the vast majority of their marriage, consumed instead with his business and the need to provide for his family. But Lindy wants him, not just the money he can make. When all attempts to talk to him about how she feels have failed, she decides to move, with Sienna their daughter, to their holiday cottage at Blueberry Beach.

But Lindy wants him, not just the money he can make. When all attempts to talk to him about how she feels have failed, she decides to move, with Sienna their daughter, to their holiday cottage at Blueberry Beach. There, she settles into a happy and useful life, expecting Adam to barely miss them - only to find that he follows her, having sold his business and their house, and wishing to reconcile! Will Adam be able to convince Lindy that he really is serious about wanting a second chance? And will Lindy be willing to open herself up to the possibility of being hurt again? This is a heart-warming, inspiring story, perhaps a somewhat new style for the author, but I love it. In fact, it may be my favourite book by the author to date, and I'm eager to see the sequel. I particularly liked the way that, once he realised the problem with his behaviour, Adam was willing to ask advice about how to change, listen, and change. Okay, he should have been willing to listen to his advice earlier, but it was nice to see it eventually! Probably the only thing I didn't like was her parents' behaviour - but that's by the by. All in all, this was a delightful and satisfying story, and I look forward to more of Blueberry Beach. Note that I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author. I was not required to write a positive review and this is my considered opinion of the book.

    I loved getting to know the characters, not too many to lose track of and not too few that it was all centered around.

I really enjoyed it wasn't poof they both knew what was wrong and it changed over night, it took time, communication with one another and trying each and everyday and thinking about the other person more than themselves. The townspeople of Blueberry Beach, Gage n his daughters Naomi, Lexi, surf shop owner Bill, Anitra (I can't wait to read more on her), Ida, and a few others who didn't judge, but was very supportive and yes sometimes protective of the newcomers and lets not forget the role that Reverend Rendell had in the story. The down or negative of the book was the name of Lindy where to me it should've been Sierra, her recital, chapter 15 band practice and getting off the school bus on 1/2 day in chapter 2.

    Yesterday’s Treasures is a wonderful, heart-warming story of second chances. It teaches us in a wholly satisfying way that following the best of our intentions may not be best for others. Adam loves his wife but his world is shaken when he wakes up to find that she’s left him. All the things he’s done for years to make sure she was taken care of weren’t enough. His actions pushed her into the background of his life until they were barely coexisting in the same space. Why hadn’t he seen it?

His actions pushed her into the background of his life until they were barely coexisting in the same space. Why hadn’t he seen it? Now he must show her that to him she has infinite value, if he wants to save his marriage. And where will he start? Lindy loves her husband, but after spending years feeling like a single mother and hoping for that one gesture from her husband, she’s had enough hurt. She leaves a letter and takes her daughter to their beach house. When Adam shows up can she trust him enough to open her heart once again? Humbling ourself for the sake of someone else is never easy, but the rewards are more than we can count. I love this book and highly recommend it.

As she left him a letter explaining where they were and why, she hoped he would b able to absorb what was going on...and 'maybe, hopefully' he still cared. Blindsided as he was to find how alone they had been feeling as he built his business, he knew he had to make some drastic changes before they would believe that he still loved them and couldn't imagine life without them. There is a lot of damage control needed, a lot of soul searching and some tender moments as this family puts in the hard work to rebuild their lives together. As well written and realistic as it is tender and gives hope that what was lost can be reclaimed. I received an ARC copy of this new series and am happy to say I am looking forward to more like this.

    Jessie Gussman certainly knows how to touch her reader's hearts with a beautiful story of love and saving a marriage. I think this is one of her best books! I really liked Lindy, who wanted more from her marriage than being alone raising her daughter while her husband was too busy running his business. I liked how brave she was when she moved from Pennsyvania to their home in Blueberry Beach, Michigan with her sixteen year old daughter so she could find herself and what she wanted or needed.

I also liked that it was a wake up call for Adam, her husband and how he chose the pastor and God to try to win his wife back. The town of Blueberry Beach, the people, and the quaint shops made it sound like a place I would like to visit. I look forwar to getting to know more about the people wh live there. I really liked this first book in this new series a lot. I received an advance copy of this book and I willingly chose to write an honest review.

    Wow. This was a departure from Jessie's usual style of story, but apparently she can do serious and contemplative just as amazingly well as she does everything else! I loved everyone's response to this situation, how real they were, how much it was obvious that it couldn't just be fixed by a few words or gestures, but that nobody wanted to give up completely either.

It amazes me that he can switch back and forth between Lindy's barely suppressed anger and pain, Adam's hurt and desperation, and Sierra's confusion and belligerent attitude, sometimes all in the same conversation, and make you feel every bit of it. This is a story of a family that has lost each other and are trying to find their way again. Each person finds themselves along the way too, which makes it even more special.

    I loved Yesterday's Treasures by Jessie Gussman. I loved the characters in the story, the second chance storyline, and the setting in Blueberry Beach, Michigan. The care and compassion Lindy found there helped her adjust to the idea that maybe she hadn't done the right thing when she walked away from her marriage, but it was the right thing for her to do at the time.

The life lessons she conveys through her characters are a great reminder to not take important relationships, especially your marriage, for granted. Jessie Gussman has written sweet romance, romantic comedy, and now a foray into women's fiction. The way she's able to make the words and story flow makes this a quick and delightful read.

    Lindy felt—no, she was—taken for granted by her hard-working husband. Adam felt that he had to give his all to grow his business and he took great pride in the success he experienced. Feeling that Adam wouldn’t miss her anyway, Lindy moved herself and their daughter to the small cottage at Blueberry Beach that they owned.

Because you want her to be happy. Not because you have to or because you want something.”

    Yesterday's Treasures is an emotional story of a couple that have been married for 20 years and the husband, Adam had put everything of himself in building his business and had not even noticed that he was missing life as it passed him and Lindy by. His daughter was 16 and he had not been at birthday parties, recitals, or other school events. Not only that, he had stopped going to church in order to go over the paperwork he got behind on working with the men on the jobs.

    A wonderful beginning to a new series. I'm a Jessie Gussman fan, and have to say this story contained all the emotions and "feels" I associate with Ms Gussman's writing. A beautiful redemptive story of second chances and new beginnings... even after 20 years of marriage to the same person. Both Adam and Lindy grew on me, and their individual faults simply highlighted the beauty of their reconciliation (though difficult it seemed!).

    Sometimes we lose sight of what is most important. Adam did. After 20 years, Lindy got tired of not being appreciated by him and moved out of state with their daughter to start over. Would Adam continue burying himself in work or go after the wife he still loves? Will they be able to work out their differences and have a future together as a family? Not what I expected, but great story showing love is an action verb and relationships work better when putting the other first.

    Lindy has felt like a single mom for the last 15 years of her 20 year marriage. Adam is working hard all the time and thinks he is doing a good job providing for his family. He doesn't seem to realize he hardly sees them. I found this a different subject although it probably happens frequently. I think it was a realistic story that held my interest.

    Real! A celebration of true humanity We all want a strong story with likable characters, an interesting plot with relatable feelings woven throughout. Jessie’s writing always gives that in spades. But this story goes way beyond that to tackle the fact that life is hard. It’s complicated and not necessarily fair. And yet we can choose to deal with all the ups and downs to live a victorious life celebrating each positive. Thank you Jessie for reminding us what it means to be human.

    I think this is a very well-written story. I have not read a story that deals with the wife's loneliness, her decision to leave the marriage (not wanting a divorce) & move to start a new life with her daughter. That move made her husband discover how much his marriage was on the rocks & he didn't like it one bit. Fortunately, he decides he wants his wife & life with her back so makes a drastic move to where she is to achieve that goal. I received a free audible copy of this book.

    This was such a good book. They characters were so real and made you feel like you were right there with them. I could feel the wife's pain of feeling lost and overlooked. I thought it was awesome that the husband didn't take a self righteous attitude, but he humbled himself and sought to win his wife back. The wisdom that the minister had to share was so good. Truly a beautiful story of forgiveness and love and rededication to your marriage. I received a free audio copy of this book from the auth This was such a good book.

    This is one of the best that Jessie has written and since I have read a lot of her books I can say that. It has very well developed character and a plot that a lot of people can relate to or understand. Lindy and Adam have fallen into a rut in their marriage, but they still want to make it work. Read to see if they succeed in doing so. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book with no obligation to review it. I am so happy that I can though.

    Wow! What a powerful story about love and forgiveness. Adam neglects his wife and daughter to grow and develop his business to the point where his wife, Lindy packs up and moves to their beach house. The lengths he goes to and the personal changes he makes to win back Lindy is a great love story. I really enjoyed reading this book and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I received a free copy of this book and this is my voluntary, honest review.

    Yesterday's Treasures was a reminder to not let life get in the way of "the good life." Adam and Lindy needed a reminder that we aren't always promised a tomorrow with the ones we love and the the things we love or work for don't mean anything without the ones we love beside us. They learned that everyday is a treasure and should be treated as one. This was an inspirational and heartwarming story of forgiveness as Adam and Lindy both learned to remember what once was is worth fighting for.

    Great Series This is the first book in the series and oh what a great beginning. I really really enjoyed this book and all the characters. Two people can love each other and still neglect each other. Sometimes it takes something drastic to make you realize what's important. I loved Adam and Lindy's story. A captivating read that had me really pulling for these two to work things out. Great Series This is the first book in the series and oh what a great beginning.
