Review: The Promise of Tomorrow by AnneMarie Brear

The Promise of Tomorrow by AnneMarie Brear

Publication Date: September 1, 2018
eBook; 390 Pages

Genre: Historical Fiction

Perfect for the fans of Dilly Court and Rosie Goodwin.

Charlotte Brookes flees her lecherous guardian, McBride, taking her younger sister with her. After a year on the road, they stumble into a Yorkshire village where the Wheelers, owners of the village shop, take them in. This new life is strange for Charlotte, but preferable to living with McBride or surviving on the roads.

Harry Belmont is an important man in the village, but he’s missing something in his life. His budding friendship with Charlotte gives him hope she will feel more for him one day, and he will marry the woman he yearns for.

When McBride discovers where Charlotte lives, his threats begin. Harry fights to keep Charlotte safe, but World War I erupts and Harry enlists.
Left to face a world of new responsibilities, and Harry’s difficult sister, Charlotte must run the gauntlet of family disputes, McBride's constant harassment, and the possibility of the man she loves being killed.

Can Charlotte find the happiness that always seems under threat, and will Harry return home to her?

My Review

I do believe that 2018 is the year that will solidify me as a certified Historical Romance fanatic! I'm not normally a romancy-type reader, but the past few books I've read have really changed my mind. And The Promise of Tomorrow is one such book. The romance is handled so beautifully that you can't help but to be swept into it as the reader.

I can see why AnneMarie Brear's books get such amazing reviews (her Goodreads ratings are all above 4 stars) - her writing is wonderful, her characters are likable (or not, in the case of McBride), and there is enough drama and action to keep your attention. The story moves at a fast page and the pages fly fast as Charlotte fights for her happiness and Harry fights for his country.

Beautifully written and thoroughly enjoyable, The Promise of Tomorrow is an excellent historical read that I highly recommend! This is my first read by AnneMarie Brear but will most definitely not be my last. I am hooked!
