About the Author

Merilyn Ruth Liddell has been creating stories all her life, but didn’t pen any of them until she retired from a career as an early-years teacher. When she is not hiking, birdwatching, snowshoeing, working in her yard, reading, or volunteering for the local art gallery or conservation society, she writes.

Tomorrow is the most engaging book I've read in some time. Written in the voices of three completely unrelated strangers - a mysterious woman living in an underground tech paradise, a local cab driver, and a pregnant girl from out of town hiding from several abusive relationships - these characters all find their lives intertwined. The main characters all have complicated backstories, which don't immediately come to light. But the way they act is understandable and relatable (even when the backstory is less relatable). In addition, the way these three characters are brought together felt surprising and original. Their stories made the different voicings of the chapters easy to follow. Liddell also cast complicated moral issues in a different light - something necessary in her dystopian world. How should power be handled? What should be controlled and what should be left up to individual choice? How should a corrupt police force be dealt with? And while I can't say I agreed with all of the character choices, I understood them and they provoked further thinking long after I finished the book. I don't know if there will be another book in this world Liddell has imagined, but I would be intrigued to know how other cities functioned, similar to how Lois Lowry wrote about separate societies in the same world and era in her series, The Giver Quartet. It reminded me of Lowry's style of world building. Content warning: There are a few near rape and violent situations, however they are tastefully written and necessary to paint an accurate picture of the local society. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher and have reviewed it voluntarily.
