Product Description

From the Publisher

This is a compelling fictinal story of deep emotons and tangled relationships. There are twists and turns to sustan the events throughout the tale.

In some parts it is sensual and steamy, but there is also tender affection and true friendship, running through the whole theme.

The story is a jigsaw of one young woman's life, although many other people are intimately involved. The disjointed pieces fit together smoothly, so that in the end, it presents a beautiful picture that the reader feels happy with.

There is a lot of conflict and dialogue, the characters tell the story, so cme vividly to life. It tells of family life like it is, complete with all the squabbles, humor and tenderness.

Women of all ages will be able to relate to Stella, who is the main character, and live and breath all of her emotins.

They will also feel for her son Jon, who is portrayed from a baby, throughout his childhood, and adolescence to young adulthood.

From the Author

Since I grew up in Liverpool and also lived on the Wirral I have set this book in those areas from the early 60's to the 80's with all the memorabilia of that time.

I have combined real people and situations in my life, with real locations.

My message is, that if you have a will to go on, no matter what, you can overcome the darkest hour.

Format: Hardcover
After marrying her first love, Paul, and having a baby son, it doesn't seem that life can get any better for young Stella; however, when Paul leaves her for another woman, Stella's once idyllic world is soon filled with unimaginable heartbreak and pain. Eventually, Stella falls for a Latin charmer named Pete, with whom she shares an almost overpowering passion. The only problem? Pete's increasingly demanding ways, which begin to fill Stella with a growing sense of dread and uncertainty. So, when the wealthy, gentle, doting Steve comes into her life, Stella suddenly finds herself torn between her rival affections for both men - which is only further complicated by Paul's unexpected return. In light of all her options, will Stella ultimately make the right choice...?

Deeply heartrending, It Mattered Yesterday is a tender, poignant romance tale. With well developed, true-to-life characters, author Diane Griffith has crafted a compelling story of love, heartbreak, and ultimate redemption in the face of life's often unpredictable challenges. A creative mix of fact and fiction (based on Griffith's own real life experiences), It Mattered Yesterday serves as a stirring reminder of the happiness that we can achieve with just a little measure of faith, hope, and well-placed trust. Quite the endearing read.

A wholly satisfying read!
I enjoyed reading this book and felt as though I understood all of the main character, Stella's emotions.
It is a stirring story of romance and passion with the gentle friendship between Stella and Jill making all the right ingredients for a heart-warming novel.
It was oozing with atmosphere and nostalgia for the varying decades.- I particularly liked the references to places in Merseyside, and the songs of those eras... The writing came to life and the story line was easy to follow. I felt they were real people grappling with real dilemmas with humour, anger, and human weakness. An interesting tale of love and family, with the feelings of a mother for her child adding a special touch.

A truly incredible read; there can't be many women who have marriage proposals after just a few dates, from EVERY man they date. I found the poor spelling and English really distracting: someone's son was "dyslectic", for example. Words to songs were quoted incorrectly; go look them up on tinternet if you must use them!
I selected this book to read partly because of previous good reviews, and partly because of the setting - Liverpool, late 50s to more recent times- so I thought it might be interesting; eventually it, and especially the central character(how naive can you be?) just irritated me.

An interesting story about Stella from teenage years to maturity, it covers many aspects of life from the sixties to the eighties when Stella finally finds true love. I enjoyed Stella's story very much and admired the charactors that were always there support Stella and her son Jon.
