Overview

A misguided experiment. A devastated world. A chance for rebirth.

In a world decimated by a killer virus, an isolated mountain community is left more dysfunctional than dystopian.

Small town. Big secrets.

It's a place where...

...neighbors still look out for neighbors,

...a feisty senior sasses the man who controls the town,

...a doctor finds a unique use for local bullies.

and the lives of three strangers unexpectedly intertwine...

...Martha, a reclusive doctor seeking a solution to the mystery of the pandemic,
...Jake, a cab driver seeking his birth mother,
...Sophie, a young, desperate pregnant woman seeking safe haven from abuse.

Brought together by violence, these unlikely friends forge an alliance that may help reshape the world.

Reviews:

"Liddell describes her futuristic world as being "dysfunctional" rather than "dystopian," because hope permeates her novel. ... Liddell's great achievement is in describing a world catastrophe by narrating the lives and actions of just three people. Global issues are mirrored in smaller effects on her characters. Tomorrow is a quick, fun read, despite its dark setting. Liddell is a concise, clear writer and her characters are well drawn and quirky. I found it a compelling story and read it in a day." - Claire Allum, review

"It is a story that addresses racism and the danger of absolute power, and is beautifully written in clear and concise language. Its subtle message stays with you long after you've finished the novel. Tomorrow exemplifies the resolve of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. They are characters we care about. They are not super-heroes." - Joylene Nowell Butler. award-winning author of Broken But Not Dead and Dead Witness

"Merilyn Ruth Liddell creates bright, full, and rich characters against a dark future. | Written with clear and engaging language, it is a quick read that will leave you wondering. | I loved this book." - Monica Zwikstra, Author

"Excellent,interesting, thoroughly enjoyed it. Hoping for more books by this author." - Shirley Enzsol
