Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? by by Claudia Carroll
Annie and Dan was childhood sweethearts. They met when they were just 15 years old and have been together eversince.
Now, they are in their late twenties. Annie was an actress while Dan is a vetenarian in the country side. They moved in with Dan's insufferable mother as his father had passed away.
Dan works 24/7 while Annie is stucked in the country side working in a small book-store and at the same time care of her whinning Mother-in-Law, entertaining neighbour whose skin is a thick as the Great Wall of China and her only friend is her 19 years old school dropped out Sister-in-law.
It had not been all that bad for Annie as like her name, she was very patience. However, Dan was out of the house more and more. He is turning into a workaholic and Annie can't fault him as he is doing his best for the family. However, would his best means that Annie be put in second place at all times?
Then out of the blue, her agent called her and she was given the golden opportunity of her lifetime to appear in a broadway show but that would means that she and Dan will be separated for a year.
Would their marriage survive "the Gap Year" with third parties trying to separate them?
This is certainly an engaging read eventhough the first few chapters were rather slow talking mostly about Annie's frustration. I feel frustrated for her when I read those chapters. Guess it's a good sign right? Means the author managed to gain readers' attention.
What I like about the book is that the problems highlighted are very real and could be happening to many couples nowadays, though not many would have the patience like Annie.
My heartached each time Dan did something and disappoints Annie. Makes me wanna give Dan a good slap or two.
Love the "side-kick" Sister-in-Law of hers.
Plot was good for me. Some unexpected scene developed.
Yes, this is a good book for me. It would have been excellent of the pace was faster in the beginning.
