Searching For Tomorrow - Review

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.



The only person I saw was Tripp. He was the center of my focus. His eyes roamed my face. I could feel the heat between the two of us raised to new proportions. I was excited and scared at the same time.
With a groan, Tripp placed one more kiss on my lips. “You’re my everything. You’re the reason I breathe, the reason I live. I can’t imagine my life without you. I’ve loved you forever and that love will never die.”


If you are reading this, I think you should know that
"About me" sounds so very pretentious to me. I guess that is what I
am supposed to write about, so here it goes!

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!


My Review:


This was an absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking story. The pain, grief and struggles that were shown in the book wrap around your heart and squeeze until the tears start pouring. I found myself being drawn into the devastation that Wrynn was experiencing through her loss.

I loved how this story was told in the past and present. We were able to see what Wrynn was currently going through and at the same time experience her life with her twin Liam and the love of her life Tripp. My favorite parts of the story were watching Wrynn and Tripp fall in love as they grew up together. Not many people are able to have a love like that at such a young age. You were able to see the development of their relationship. Tripp was always so protective of her and stayed with her at all times. You fell in love with them as they fell in love with each other!

The parts of the story that were told in the present were the hardest to read. Your heart ached for Wrynn because you know how much she loved Tripp and how much a part of her life he was. For him to be gone at such an early age leaving her to raise the three kids was heartbreaking. I could understand though why it was so hard to cope after reading their history together. Tripp was her life. I wanted to wrap my arms around her and tell her it would be ok.

To keep this spoiler free I will tell you there is a big unexpected surprise at the end of the story that I was not expecting. Thankfully I was already sitting down because it I wouldn't have been I probably would have fallen over! I do wish we would have had more of a conclusion with Liam and his past girlfriend situation.... but who knows.... maybe another book is on the way!!!

Overall this was an excellent book and it made me feel again. I love stories that can bring out those types of emotions in the readers.
