Behind a legend lies the truth…As a child, Eve Parrish lost her father and her best friend, Maggie Flynn, in a tragic bridge collapse. Fifteen years later, she returns to Point Pleasant to settle her deceased aunt’s estate. Though much has changed about the once thriving river community, the ghost of tragedy still weighs heavily on the town, as do rumors and sightings of the Mothman, a local legend. When Eve uncovers startling information about her aunt’s death, that legend is in danger of becoming all too real . . .

Caden Flynn is one of the few lucky survivors of the bridge collapse but blames himself for coercing his younger sister out that night. He’s carried that guilt for fifteen years, unaware of darker currents haunting the town. It isn’t long before Eve’s arrival unravels an old secret—one that places her and Caden in the crosshairs of a deadly killer . . .

 
A Thousand Yesteryears by Mae Clair

A Thousand YesteryearsThe great tragedy happened years ago and the small town of Point Pleasant never quite recovered. Eve Parrish left as a child, leaving behind the horror of losing both her father and her best friend, but she is back to settle her aunt’s estate, only to discover that the town she once loved still bears the pall of death and the rumors of an long time legend. Some things should never be re-visited, some things are hiding evil and must be exposed, and Eve is determined to do just that.

A survivor of that horrendous tragedy, Caden Flynn wears the face of a man tortured by guilt that he cannot avoid, and Eve’s return awakens the his pain and something else in a man who has become a shell of what he was meant to be. Could it be hope or is it something deeper?

Like many small towns legends and rumors abound, Point Pleasant has “the Mothman,” a creature who is rumored to have been sighted in the woods surrounding the town, is he a legend, a figment of gossip and wild imaginations or is he truly the nightmare they claim? OR, could there be an even more vile creature living right in their midst, wearing the fa├žade of a good citizen of power?
Follow Eve and Caden as they dig through the past to discover murder, lies and unlikely heroes because of a voice from beyond the veil.

Mae Clair’s A Thousand Yesteryears combines the talent of an amazing author, a touch of the supernatural, murder, cover ups and the character of a small town trapped in the ghosts of the past. If magnetic mysteries with a touch of romance, a lot of suspense and fabulous characters and dialogue are musts for you, I highly recommend A Thousand Yesteryears !

I received an ARC edition from Lyrical Underground via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
