    One thought on “Yesterdays”

    1. I picked these books up at Victoria from Mr. Whittle himself. He signed each one. I enjoyed talking with him and felt compelled to buy a couple books. I bought them thinking my boys would like them since they are into history and ghosts, read them myself and was quite surprised! Very good reads!!
