The Book of Tomorrow: A Novel
The magical new novel from number one bestseller Cecelia Ahern. Tamara Goodwin has always got everything she's ever wanted. Born into a family of wealth, she grew up in a mansion with its own private beach, a wardrobe full of designer clothes and all that a girl could ever wish for. She's always lived in the here and now, never giving a second thought to tomorrow. But then suddenly her dad is gone and life for Tamara and her mother changes forever. Left with a mountain of debt, they have no choice but to sell everything they own and move to the country. Nestled next to Kilsaney Castle, their gatehouse is a world away from Tamara's childhood. With her mother shut away with grief, and her aunt busy tending to her, Tamara is lonely and bored and longs to return to Dublin.When a travelling library passes through Kilsaney Demesne, Tamara is intrigued. Her eyes rest on a mysterious large leather bound tome locked with a gold clasp and padlock. What she discovers within the pages takes her breath away and shakes her world to its core.
I found it very entertaining and page turning from the first paragraph. At first I was thinking the main character was loud, weird, maybe a little crazy. But she really grows on you. Her sense of humor is awesome. There is a underlying depression because of course she had found her father after he commited suicide and her mother becomes very quiet. While she tries to just live every day to the fullest with the new situation she has been moved to. They move to the country with no town and begins to meet new people and discovers a unmarked book from the traveling library and it's handsome driver. Her mother closes herself off to heal from the death of her husband and Tamara learns to deal with the loss through new friends and a diary.
