Thought provoking romance about forgiveness and love
Mar 30, 2009
If Tomorrow Never Comes by Marlo Schalesky is an intriguing forward thinking novel that is sure to surprise its readers. Kinna and Jimmy Henley have loved each other since childhood, but for Kinna, her perfect life always included children. That dream lies unfulfilled, and their marriage is dying along with it. The events of one day will change everything for them, but only if they believe.Schalesky does a terrific job of showing both sides of a floundering marriage. Both husband and wife think they are completely in the right and can't see the pain they each are inflicting. Kinna has set her mind on having the perfect family, and that includes a child, so when she can't have one, she blames God, Jimmy, and everyone around her, leaving her bitter and lashing out. Jimmy has always tried to be everything to Kinna, but when he can't provide the only thing she wants, he feels like a complete failure and that colors every aspect of his life.Schalesky doesn't sugarcoat this couple, and the book thrives because of it. I love the unexpected twist that brings the book full circle.Schalesky just gets better and better.<br/>
