Overview

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.

"A tale of love, loyalty, and conflict of a scope few writers could realize but all readers will enjoy."
"Heart-stopping historical fiction," Kathryn Atwood, author.
"A thoroughly enjoyable but sad story. Captured so much of the life and death during World War One. Hard to put down."
"Great descriptive story.....brought tears to my eyes....very well written......couldn't put it down...highly recommend...you won't be disappointed."
"'This Time Tomorrow' is a beautifully written and compulsive read."
"So many twists and turns you could never predict where you were going to be on the next page."
"An incredibly moving novel and wonderfully written. Highly recommended and one which I shall long remember."

Rupert Colley is the founder, editor and writer of the hugely successful History In An Hour series of ebooks and audio, published by HarperCollins, including the bestselling 'World War One: History In An Hour'. This Time Tomorrow: a World War One novel is one of several superb works of historical fiction.

"A real page turner."

Historical fiction with heart and drama.

Great story. I did not miss a word. I really liked it

Set in the early 20th century during WWI this story has the grit and horror of war juxtaposed with the story of two brothers that fall in love with the same woman. It was interesting to read how many young men were actually shot by the British army due to “desertion-cowardice” and for that reason alone this book holds merit. There was nothing that was new in this story but it was well written and entertaining and that is how I decided to give it a star value of three. I received this book through a Library Thing giveaway.

Rather sophomoric.
