Romantic love All the elements of a classic romance are whipped up to a heady froth in Fern Michaels's Yesterday (Brilliance Audio, $17.95, 3 hours, 1567408737) a pretty, spoiled young woman who thinks that the world is her oyster, a handsome, hardworking young man who has made sure, since they were children, that her oyster never lacks for pearls, friendship mistaken for love, love mistaken for friendship, shocking truths about family origins hidden and revealed. Then tragedy strikes and events of the past and present are thrown into sharp focus, true character comes to the fore, and the lucky ones discover that though you can long for yesterday, you can only live for today.
