Blog Tour: Searching for Tomorrow by Kathryn McNeill Crane


Some people are blessed to find that one certain person who completes them.

Wrynn’s yesterdays were what others only dream of having. She and Tripp were the best of friends before they even thought about love. They had the fairy tale life where ‘like’ turns into ‘love’, and ‘love’ becomes ‘happily ever after’.

What happens when life conspires against you, and snatches your soul mate from your arms?

…only her forever love ended much too soon.

Broken beyond her own ability to repair, Wrynn boxes up her grief and attempts to raise her three girls the best she can on her own. As time slowly passes, Wrynn relives her life with Tripp while struggling most days to get out of bed. She is reminded of him at every turn.

How do you set your grief and anguish aside? How do you pick up the shattered pieces, put those pieces back together again, and try to move on?

Wrynn tries to find the joy in life every single day through her daughters, family, and friends. Her twin brother Liam has dedicated himself to helping Wrynn put her life back together after losing his own love. On the other hand, her mother-in-law lives to torment her at every turn. Wrynn can't even find a chance to breathe, much less a desire to somehow search for her tomorrow.

What Jennifer D Says...

I soooo adored this story. What is not to love about a true love story that pulls at every emotion in you. This is such an amazing debut by Kathryn Crane and I cannot wait to see what else she has in store for us! It’s so beautifully written it will make your heart melt. But at the same time it’s a tragic love story that will bring tears to your eyes. It’s a single POV and flips back and forth between past and present events.

In the past… Wrynn and Tripp have been best friends since grade school. Their friendship turned to love as they got older. Tripp was best friends with Wrynn’s older brother so they were like the three musketeers, they were always together. Wrynn and Tripp were the ideal couple. They truly loved each other and envisioned a life together. Until the events of 9/11 changes everything. Tripp knows what he must do and this will change everything for them.

In the present… The happily ever after Wyrnn thought she would always have is no more. There is no Tripp and she is left alone to raise their three daughters. She gets help from her family and when Tripp’s mother enters the picture she is the epitome of the in law from hell!! I soooo hated her! Wrynn struggles every day to just make it. This was not the life she thought she would have. Its heart breaking to see her go through the everyday struggles without the love of her life.

When Wrynn accepts that she needs to live life for herself and her daughters and stop dwelling on what will never be the unexpected happens! I never saw this coming in a million years and it touched my heart like no other book has! This book is truly inspiring and is written in a way that anyone could read it whether you’re a preteen or an old granny. It’s pure and it’s beautiful and I could not get enough! Very well done!! 5/5 huge stars for me!

Author Bio & Links

If you are reading this, I think you should know that "About me" sounds so very pretentious to me. I guess that is what I am supposed to write about, so here it goes!

Kathryn is a simple country girl who likes to spend time with her hubba, hunka hubby, her three kids and her friends. She loves to cook and really loves to eat! During the spring and summer, you will more than likely find her outside puttering around in her garden. When the veggies start coming in, she will probably be sweating over a hot canner in the kitchen, canning all the goodies she is blessed with. Kathryn likes to hike and go camping, and as a Girl Scout leader, she gets to do this pretty often! On cold winter nights, you will probably find her wrapped in a warm blanket, lost in a good book, while sitting in her rocking chair on the front porch!

Kathryn was born and raised in North Carolina, and while she loves to travel, she can't imagine ever leaving the mountains that she has come to call home. Not a day goes by that Kathryn doesn't thank God for abundantly blessing her. He has been so good to her, and she is very grateful. She holds Jeremiah 29:11 very close to her heart and believes it with every fiber of her being. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Kathryn loves flip flops, chocolate, sweet tea and dirt between her toes. As far back as she can remember, she's had a book in her hand. Reading has carried her to places she will never go. It has introduced her to people that she will never meet. When life is great and when it is rough, she's always been able to find a book to carry her through. She finally decided to write down some of the stories in her head (yes, be scared) and heart after dawdling around and wasting years dreaming. She hopes you enjoy reading those stories as much as she loves writing them!
