ABOUT THE BOOK


Like There’s No Tomorrow is an amusing yet tender love story about two kind caretakers, two quirky old Scottish sisters bent on reuniting, and too many agendas. It’s a tale of family, falling in love, faith, and the gift of each new day.

Scottish widower Ian MacLean is plagued by a mischievous grannie, bitter regrets, and an ache for something he’ll never have again. His only hope for freedom is to bring his grannie's sister home from America. But first, he'll have to convince her lovely companion, Emily, to let her go. Emily Chapman devotes herself to foster youth and her beloved Aunt Grace. Caring for others quiets a secret fear she holds close to her heart. But when Ian appears, wanting to whisk Grace off to Scotland, everything Emily needs to protect—including her heart—is at risk.

                                                                                                                                                                          

MY THOUGHTS

Who doesn't love a good love story? What about a seemingly love that's doomed from the start? With obstacles emotionally and literally that separates what love that could flourish between our two main characters, the least being that they live on two different countries on different continents, what else can go wrong? Apparently more than meets the eye. Don't fret, this is not one story that focuses on tragedy after tragedy to draw readers in. This is one sweet romantic story that taps your tender heart into a benevolent display of cherishing each day.

Honestly, I was a tad bit put off my our main character, Ian. Right off the bat, his selfishness to "get Maggie off his hands" rubbed me the wrong way. Him being our main character surprised me as "why would the author want me to dislike the main character?" However, his attitude changed as the story progressed and both his and Emily's development in character and in faith redeemed all displeasure I felt for either of them.
"Dear God, I thought I was being strong, but maybe I've just been afraid. I haven't been listening to You or depending on You at all. I've been trying to take care of everything and everyone on my own.  I haven't been trusting You." (Loc 6116)
A story of family, faith, forgiveness, treasuring each day and the courage to love.  This will have you moved to tears, resonated with sighs and maybe encouraged you to live each day to its fullest, undaunted and trust in Him.

QUOTABLE QUOTES
  • "Faith believes God is good, not just when things are going your way, but in the midst of tragedy." (Loc 4154) 
  • "I know how hard it can be to forgive those who hurt us.  Remember looking at the ocean? I am amazed that the God who created all that power and beauty also cares about each of us.  I don't know why He does.  All I know is His love is immense and unfailing, and has the power to do the impossible.  he loves each one of us, though we don't deserve it." (Loc 3014) 
  • "...having family who loves you is a rare gift.  Only a fool would waste it." (Loc 2444)  
  • "It's easy to stand there and do your part when times are good and everyone's pleased with you.  But it takes real courage to stand up and do the right thing when it will cost something. Like your pride." (Loc 6049) 

 O, there are so more, but in the end, take courage, and live each day like there's no tomorrow.


Thank you, Camille.
