Lynda Bellingham has written a novel of love, hardship and heartbreak. Five generations of women are involved. Alice, Mary, Jane, Meredith and Anna have suffered, eventually discovering themselves and finding true love, happiness or contentment. The link between them is a prayer book bearing inscriptions and passed down from mother to daughter. The strength gained from this helps the loving and sometimes traumatic conceptions and births of the girls who are the main protagonists of this story. The similarities in their plights are remarkably told by the author. The women in the limelight all become pregnant in circumstances ranging from one-night stands to rape with their pregnancies abandoned or never revealed to their natural fathers. They find solace in men who are willing to accept their plights; good men who become supportive husbands.

This novel is fascinating in the relationships that evolve from 1910 to the present day. Much revolves around Mary's daughter Jane and her daughter Meredith, mother of Anna. Meredith becomes a successful television presenter. Fate has dealt her mother, Jane, a mixture of resentment and love. Meredith Lee finds fortune after a series of honest confessions releasing guilt between family members.

Family disputes, tragedies, happiness, guilt, unrequited love feature prominently. Lynda Bellingham skilfully guides the reader through a maze of emotion and relationships. Infidelity, false hopes, solidarity, tragedy and family secrets that befall the women. They are all heroines supported by genuine friends and relatives. Oliver in particular is a tower of strength to Meredith and Anna. Even remote figures become prominent. Jack Blatchford and Myles Harrison are partners in a thriving construction company.

A wonderful story of love through the generations and the precious relationship of mothers and daughters. Lynda brings her characters to life on the page with great skill, you would never know this was a debut novel, she is a natural.

This is a great story with great characters bonded through their love ..... You can't help but get engrossed in their tale, which is told so beautifully.

I loved it. Thanks Lynda, for a great read!

I was eager to see Lynda's writing style, having followed on from her at Aylesbury High School. I am two thirds of the way through this book and am wondering whether I can be bothered to give anymore time to reading it. The sameness of each girl's story is frustrating and has become so predictable. I think I finally gave up when Meredith attends her Aunt Pamela's funeral. They are met at the door of the crematorium and on the next page everyone is throwing roses into the grave. I think the publishers have badly let Lynda down, their sub editors should have picked up on this. They seem to think they can sell anything with a famous name attached. I greatly admire Lynda for her acting and charitable roles but not everyone needs to publish a novel as is becoming the norm with celebrities these days. Sorry Lynda.

I bought this book (Actually before I knew she was dying) to see what Lynda Bellingham's writing was like as I hadn't read any before, and she was taught by my father. It is a very easy read, and if you like that sort of thing, a very comfortable insight into some of the things that we have hidden in our families and why. I found it had several dozen pages which might have benefited from a more forceful editing, being somewhat long winded at times and inclined to get on to the writer's hobby horse and ride away into the sunset! But I would not want to condemn it completely because it does have some interesting things to say about relationships, and it is very easy and quick to read.

I picked this book up immediately after reading both of Lynda's wonderful autobiographies back-to-back, & was curiously intrigued to see how she'd fare in the guise of a fiction author.
I have to say, the first few chapters of Tell Me Tomorrow (very) nearly put me off continuing - the story seemed to be progressing at the pace of a steamroller, & felt slightly quaint & old-fashioned.

But, it soon began to gather pace as it moved through the years (& generations) of the female line of one family's trials & tribulations, & one tragically key scene seemed to propel the whole story into a much more interesting direction & towards its conclusion - as we learn that family secrets aren't always best kept secret... & the whole book seemed to lift up a notch & I was engrossed!

There are many echoes of Lynda's own life within the book - especially the naming of the book's main character (Meredith Lee) after her own original name, the settings on a working farm (where Lynda grew up), & in London/Hampstead where she made her home, & her own personal quest to search for her birth parents.

It's a book that I imagine would mainly appeal to women, as it's told mainly from a woman's perspective - but having said that, there's much to enjoy for anyone who loves intelligent fiction & a good story!
As Lynda says, it's a book 'to mothers everywhere', & celebrates the bond that mothers share with their daughters - not to mention the dark secrets that families often prefer to keep locked away that can come back later to haunt the next generation.

All in all, I feels Lynda's done an excellent job, and it's a remarkably well-written & enjoyable debut novel from the much-missed & greatly-loved actress.
