LoveReading View on For All Our Tomorrows

A stirring and elaborately sweeping saga set in Cornwall during the Second World War. Two sisters, Sara and Bette are as different as different can be, however they love each other dearly. Bette is young and frivolous and has her eye on the newly arrived American Marines, while faithful Sara is married to a difficult man and has two young children. Both women are set to be changed forever by the friendly invasion of Fowey in 1943. Freda Lightfoot allows us, the reader, far more information than either Sara or Bette, consequently there are times when you want to shout, to warn them or chastise their decisions. We see the young men as they train for the D-Day landings, witness the men of the Home Guard on their patrol and the women at home as they try to raise funds for the war. The storyline just gallops along, covering many of the difficulties faced during the war, making for an interesting and stimulating read. ~ Liz Robinson

For All Our Tomorrows Synopsis

From Sunday Times bestselling author, Freda Lightfoot. 1943, when hundreds of US Marines arrive at a quiet Cornish town, two lives will never be the same again. Trapped in a small town resistant to change, Bette can't resist handsome GI, Chad. But when reality draws in, Bette realises that their love was based on empty promises...Meanwhile Bette's sister Sara, is tormented by her possessive husband, but even his jealous attempts to keep her out of temptation can't prevent Sara falling for officer Charlie. Caught in the very worst of times with the turmoil and upheaval of war all around them, can these sisters find a brighter future for tomorrow? A compelling family drama for fans for Maureen Lee and Katie Flynn. Praise for Freda Lightfoot 'Freda's book was a joy to read for her characters were so believable and richly drawn I really cared what happened to them and interspersed with the story was the arrival of the Americans, who caused such a furore in that small Cornish town as D Day approaches, And when World War 2 grinds to a halt, people's lives are changed for ever. It was a real page turner with a very satisfying end.' - Anne Bennettt
