The War Between the States changed a young Southern gentleman's life forever. He lost his love, he gave up his home, and he changed his name.

Can family secrets rip wounds in the sons as

Overview

The War Between the States changed a young Southern gentleman's life forever. He lost his love, he gave up his home, and he changed his name. Though his family searched for him with little success, the unknown family past of Andrew Hamilton caught up with Hamilton Anderson just when he'd started to live and love again.

Can family secrets rip wounds in the sons as they did in the fathers? Can a second generation make peace with the twisted sins of the first, or did the sins of the father perpetuate and even escalate in the son? If the Hamiltons thought it was already Too Late for Tomorrow, what would they do if Tomorrow Came Early?

Read an Excerpt

"Pa, you shouldn't be sittin' up. Doctor says you gotta rest, so's we can go home."

"Tracy, dear, I won't be goin' home. I just don't have the strength, but you and Andrew need to leave Richmond now." His voice was tremulous as he insisted.

"Now, Pa," Tracy cajoled, "we been all through that before. I'm not goin' home or anywhere else without you. Think I'd leave you to those nasty Yankees?" She tucked him back into bed. "You rest. I'll be back with your supper, soon as I feed Andy."

"Tracy-Lou, I'm tellin' you I expect you to go with young Hamilton. Marry him, too, soon as you get home, if not sooner."

Tracy didn't reply. She turned and gave him a winsome smile. As she closed the door behind herself, she could hear her father grumbling and rattling through the drawer of the table at his bedside. Probably can't find some worthless official document.

Meet the Author

Diana Lee Johnson's 35 years of professional public purchasing service in her beloved Virginia keep the echoes of the past at her doorstep. She's proud of her home state, and proud of her seventeenth century American roots. Diana indulges her passions for history and story-weaving by escaping into her writing in the hopes of entertaining others.

She feels that "without the past, we have no way to enjoy the present, or anticipate the future." Diana hopes the past can live again for her readers, allowing them to linger and see it through her eyes. "If I succeed in giving the reader a glimpse into history, I am fulfilled. And if I can interest someone in history, I am ecstatic." The main characters in Tomorrow Came Early won her heart in Too Late for Tomorrow, but can live for you whether you've read the original novel or not. She would love to hear from you.
