Book Description

When Dottie’s husband Reg receives a mysterious letter through the post, Dottie has no idea that this letter will change her life forever.

Traumatised by his experiences fighting in World War II, Reg isn’t the same man that Dottie remembers when he is demobbed and returns home to their cottage in Worthing. Once caring and considerate, Reg has become violent and cruel. Dottie just wants her marriage to work but nothing she does seems to work.

The letter informs Reg that he is the father of a child born out of a dalliance during the war. The child has been orphaned and sole care of the young girl has now fallen to him. He seems delighted but Dottie struggles with the idea of bringing up another woman’s child, especially as she and Reg are further away than ever from having one of their own.

However, when eight-year-old Patsy arrives a whole can of worms is opened and it becomes clear that Reg has been very economical with the truth. But can Dottie get to the bottom of the things before Reg goes too far?

A compelling family drama that will appeal to fans of Maureen Lee, Lyn Andrews, Josephine Cox and Annie Groves.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great holiday read 10 July 2011
By K. John
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This novel has so many different facets that make for a great read. It's a well-observed domestic drama that deals with such matters as marital disharmony, sex and domestic violence in a down-to-earth, grown-up way, it's set in the fifties with lots of entertaining period detail and, the icing on the cake, it features an intriguing mystery that will keep you turning the pages. And, just in case I've made it sound too gritty, it does have an uplifting but believable ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good read! 26 July 2011
By JillH
Format:Paperback
Thoroughly enjoyed "There's Always Tomorrow" and will be recommending it to friends. All the characters were believable and I liked the fact that there was attempt to hide the physical stuff.
It was set in the 50's and there is plenty of historical detail so you get the "flavour" of that time. Look forward to the next book

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read 26 July 2011
By beaky94

A very good storyline, well written, the characters were well developed. It was difficult to put the book down as you always wanted to know what happened next. I hope that Pam Weaver publishes another book soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really loved this book. 2 Nov. 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really loved this book. Dottie is a genuinely lovely person and Reg her husband an all-time rotter. The reader prays he will get his comeuppance in the end. The story also has some very interesting supporting characters and the post second world war period is vividly portrayed. Read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gritty and perceptive 12 Feb. 2012
By KarenH
Format:Paperback
There's Always Tomorrow was more than I expected. I expected a well-written but fairly gentle romance set amongst the fall-out of WWII. What I got was a gritty and perceptive read, with far more meat on the bones. It had great narrative drive and the main character of Dottie grew on me as she grew up and found the strength to face up to and deal with problems in her life, mainly husband Reg and all the trouble that came with him. A fascinating insight into 1950s life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down 16 Jan. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I never really read this type of fiction but something about it being set in the 50's and the domestic abuse angle made me take a look as it seemed a bit different than what you might call "clogs and shawls" fiction and so I downloaded it on Kindle.

Sadly (for me!) I read this book in just 3 or 4 nights as it had such a gripping story with lots of twists and turns as well as a nice portrayal of post war Britain.

I would definitely have a look at anything else Pam Weaver writes and recommend it to everyone including people like me who didn't think this genre was for them!
