About The Book

Publication Date: May 2, 2021

Juliette and George Morgan know all about Living the Good Life. As the town’s newest ‘it’ couple, they succeed in transforming the otherwise sleepy farming community of Rickshaw into a hotbed for musical talent and social enterprise. A poignant and beautifully layered tale, the Day Before Tomorrow is a portrayal of an era once removed, yet not forgotten – from the early to late seventies – with much of the story taking place within the Morgan family’s domestic locus and the community in which they live. Relationships become so intricately woven, adult and adolescent lines become blurred and an illicit connection between teacher and student builds into hidden, often disturbing scenes of love, secrets and human experience. When the Morgan’s future essentially falls down in mid-flight, the family is forced to cope with not only trauma, but coming of age and ultimately moving away from their safe haven of Rickshaw. An indictment of survival, shattered innocence, death, love and optimism, this tale is one that will transport your mind, speak to your heart and stay in both long after you have closed the cover.



The Review

Enter the world of the Morgan family, complete with three children and one on the way, as they move to a new community where George starts a job as the new high school principal.

The family’s experiences, interwoven with new-found friendships, spanning more than three decades in The Day Before Tomorrow by Monique Britten.

On the surface, this might seem like a joyful tale celebrating the joys of family. Told in alternating time periods, with much of the story set in the early 1970s, the emphasis is on the family settling into the community and building relationships. Those friendships are challenged by an inappropriate interaction between a teacher and a student.

Meanwhile, tragedy strikes the family, creating a lasting impact on the children, especially Kate. As the story progresses, the time period moves forward, and uses Kate’s flashbacks to fill in the gaps. It’s challenging to maintain a clear sense of when the events are unfolding.

Ultimately, The Day Before Tomorrow delivers a sad story about how a family tragedy still impacts a family decades after it occurred.

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
