Title: Searching for Tomorrow
Author: Kathryn M. Crane
Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Young Adult
Publication Date: October 21, 2013
Some people are blessed to find that one certain person who completes them.
Wrynn’s yesterdays were what others only dream of having. She and Tripp were the best of friends before they even thought about love. They had the fairy tale life where ‘like’ turns into ‘love’, and ‘love’ becomes ‘happily ever after’.
What happens when life conspires against you, and snatches your soul mate from your arms?
…only her forever love ended much too soon.
Broken beyond her own ability to repair, Wrynn boxes up her grief and attempts to raise her three girls the best she can on her own. As time slowly passes, Wrynn relives her life with Tripp while struggling most days to get out of bed. She is reminded of him at every turn.
How do you set your grief and anguish aside? How do you pick up the shattered pieces, put those pieces back together again, and try to move on?
Wrynn tries to find the joy in life every single day through her daughters, family, and friends. Her twin brother Liam has dedicated himself to helping Wrynn put her life back together after losing his own love. On the other hand, her mother-in-law lives to torment her at every turn. Wrynn can’t even find a chance to breathe, much less a desire to somehow search for her tomorrow.
I want to thank the love Rachael @ DreamsComeTruePromotions for managing to squeeze me into this tour ❤
Please be warned that you will need hell of alot of tissues at the ready, as this will make you cry. And before you say “meh” ….this is an UGLY CRY!
Covered in blotches
Snot dribbling sort of cry…..Well for me it was!
Would you be able to cope from the loss of a loved one?
Be able to function a normal day without rehashing all those memories?
Wrynn had a wonderful life, full of love, laughter, adventure and full of family promises, that is of course until the worst day of her life.!
I don’t really want to spoil the plot for you, but this was an emotional rollercoaster of emotions in the worst kind! After re-living my own personal feelings and emotions of the 9/11 event, it all came back to the forefront when the author mentioned those horrifying events in this book! and still to this very day I’m pretty sure everyone in the UK, US and everywhere else worldwide will re-open those wounds and feelings when they read that section of the book! I commend you for that Kathryn.
Words can’t really describe what I was feeling throughout this! I was more than heartbroken for Wrynn and her 3 little angels, more than sympathised with all the shite Wrynn had to live through from Mother Tidwell.
One thing that stood out to me whilst reading this and I loved the author for, was the past/present chapters in the book! I loved that one minute we were in the past with Wrynn living out her dream with her “soul mate” Tripp living their teenage lives to the full, then the next minute were back in the present, with Wrynn and her everyday battles. We got to see both sides of the fence and I know I got the whole story, not part of.
Yes….So I ugly cried throughout this book, but what really got to me, was towards the end. I don’t think someone can survive what just happened there. I know it was good intentions and all but I’m left feeling………Yeah I don’t know. I don’t know whether to hunt you down and smack you over the head for all these pent up feelings or create something that is worse than an UGLY CRY?
But above at that, this was a FANTASTIC read, and I am glad to of read this!
Definitely worth 5 *****
Kathryn is a simple country girl who likes to spend time with her hubba, hunka hubby, her three kids and her friends. She loves to cook and really loves to eat! During the spring and summer, you will more than likely find her outside puttering around in her garden. When the veggies start coming in, she will probably be sweating over a hot canner in the kitchen, canning all the goodies she is blessed with. Kathryn likes to hike and go camping, and as a Girl Scout leader, she gets to do this pretty often! On cold winter nights, you will probably find her wrapped in a warm blanket, lost in a good book, while sitting in her rocking chair on the front porch!
Kathryn was born and raised in North Carolina, and while she loves to travel, she can’t imagine ever leaving the mountains that she has come to call home. Not a day goes by that Kathryn doesn’t thank God for abundantly blessing her. He has been so good to her, and she is very grateful. She holds Jeremiah 29:11 very close to her heart and believes it with every fiber of her being. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Kathryn loves flip flops, chocolate, sweet tea and dirt between her toes. As far back as she can remember, she’s had a book in her hand. Reading has carried her to places she will never go. It has introduced her to people that she will never meet. When life is great and when it is rough, she’s always been able to find a book to carry her through. She finally decided to write down some of the stories in her head (yes, be scared) and heart after dawdling around and wasting years dreaming. She hopes you enjoy reading those stories as much as she loves writing them!
