Introduced to literature during his eight grade, author Robert H. T. W. Nieder fell in love with words and stories so he proceeded to read classics, knowing that one day a novel of his own would come to completion. With inspirations like Dickens, Steinbeck and Shakespeare, Nieder went on to create his own magic with words and “Everything is Just Yesterday with Lots of Tomorrows”, a story of romance and hope come to life.

Billie Barrett was an odd one, straight and true, misery and anger all wrapped into one lonely soul. Shrimping has been what he had grown into and what he intends to do throughout his lifetime. His world comes crashing down upon him when, after a boating accident, he is washed ashore on a barrier island off the coast of South Carolina, in the Gullah region. (Gullahs are descendants of African slaves who make live in Georgia and South Carolina’s Lowcountry, which includes the coastal plain and the Sea Islands – traditionally the Gullah region included parts of North Carolina, extending southward to Cape Fear in Florida.) Taken in and cared for by a Gullah family, Billie finds himself falling in love with young Bridgette Kamau. As their relationship develops Billie experiences a change of heart and belief.

Dwelling on the all-time favorite genre of romance, this story displays how love can change a person whose mindset was once plagued by ignorance and hatred. A triumph of the good in man over his dark side, Billie Barrett’s journey to finding love and self-redemption makes this story the perfect personification of the human aspiration to ultimately obtain love, peace, and equality in life.

With a little cultural background on the Gullah community, which is unique unto itself, backed by a subtle message enhanced by the romantic theme, “Everything is Just Yesterday with Lots of Tomorrows” is an inspiring story of love and finding common ground amidst racial or cultural differences.
