My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After finding out that her aunt had passed away from cancer, Eve Parrish finds that she has inherited the family home and business back in Point Pleasant. Eve’s mother had packed up her daughter and left the town behind years ago after a bridge collapse that claimed Eve’s father’s life along with the life of her best friend Maggie.

When Eve arrives in Point Pleasant she finds some things have changed about the town but others are still the same from her childhood. Rumors of sightings of a supernatural creature called the Mothman still plague the town and Eve soon finds that her aunt may have had secrets hidden after finding that her home ha been broken into. Soon Eve finds herself caught up in the mystery of what happened that tragic night the bridge had collapsed.

A Thousand Yesteryears is one of those books that had a great mix of several different elements to it. There’s the mystery/thriller aspect but with a mix of supernatural and paranormal thrown into the mix but you also have a bit of a romantic suspense when Eve meets up with her childhood crush who helps her solve the mystery.

The characters are all likable in the story. A great little small town vibe where everyone knows everyone else. I couldn’t help but like Eve as a main character and quickly found myself rooting for her to figure out just what had happened. She also grows a bit in the story as she learns that people are not always what they were rumored to be and becomes friends with someone from her childhood.

Overall, best described as a supernatural mystery/thriller and one that I really enjoyed, would definitely recommend.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Carrie, wonderful review! My mom grew up in that area. My uncle Bob crossed that bridge (Silver Bridge) 30 minutes before it fell. I remember that day well! I must get this book!!! Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    • Oh wow, I knew it was based on the true story of the bridge collapse so that peaked my interest a bit more but I wasn’t familiar with it myself. I’d say yes, definitely give this one a try and let me know what you think since you’re familiar with the actual events. Thankfully your uncle was one lucky man that day!
