This Time Tomorrow by Rupert Colley
Two brothers. One woman. A nation at war.
A compelling story of war, brotherly love, romance and betrayal during World War One.
"I would say this novel is far superior to Pat Barker's Regeneration."
Vast in scope and intimate in the portrayal of three lives swept along by circumstances, 'This Time Tomorrow' moves from the drawing rooms of Edwardian London to the trenches of the Western Front and to the uncertainty of post-war Britain.
When Guy Searight volunteers to fight with the British army in the early days of World War One, he leaves behind his girlfriend, Mary. While away fighting, Guy's younger brother, Jack, seizes an opportunity to woo Mary for himself.
Forthright and self assured, Guy has always looked out for his confident but frail brother and blithely promises his fretting mother that he'll look out for him when Jack's turn comes to join up. But embittered by Jack's betrayal, Guy vows that when Jack has to face the horrors of war for himself, he won't be there to look after him.
When the brothers are reunited in the trenches of the Western Front, their thoughts are both with Mary. As Jack buckles under the strain of war, can Guy sustain his anger and allow his brother to suffer alone?
A shocking event, catastrophic in its intensity and barbaric in its conclusion, forces Guy to re-evaluate his relationship with his brother, with Mary and ultimately himself.
This Time Tomorrow: a World War One novel is a tale of love, loss and longing.
