The three interconnected stories in Someday Soon : Window On Yesterday , Window On Today and Window on Tomorrow are ones written by Joan Hohl in the 1980's under a pseudonym. There seems to be a trend in the publishing world to bring back earlier works by a popular author to introduce them to a new generation or romance readers.

Each novella length story relates the exploits of three friends as they discover true love in unexpected ways. In Window On Yesterday Alycia Matlock seems more interested in studying history than her social life until she meets historian Sean Halloran. Sean is both handsome and smart. When Alycia has a blow to her head, she thinks she has been sent back to the Civil War, an era she has studied at great length. Is Patrick an earlier version of Sean ? Will Alycia find her forever love?

In Window on Today , Karla Janowitz's hard work has made her art gallery successful. She does not need the artist Jared Cradowg in her life. His reputation as a womanizer is enough to make her uneasy. Will Karla be able to resist Jared's charisma ?

In Window on Tomorrow , Andrea Trask has been hurt deeply before, so she tries to protect her heart at all costs. She has nightly dreams about a perfect, gentle lover. When she meets Professor Paul Hellka, she is taken aback, since he looks and talks just like her dream lover. Will Paul be the man of her dreams or more ?

As the author states at the start, the stories are told in a more dated style. This does not detract because a good love story is universal and can stand the test of time as evidenced by classic favorites such as Wuthering Heights or any of Jane Austen's novels. All three stories in Someday Soon offer sensuous love scenes and charming characters. This was a great way for me to be introduced to an author who I had never tried before. I will be looking for others from Joan Hohl's back list as I recommend other readers of romance should.
