A Song For Tomorrow – by Alice Peterson

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Tom fell in love with Alice the moment he saw her. He realises that being with her will not be easy, but she is a force of nature, a burst of sunlight in his otherwise ordinary world. 

Some people might look at Alice and think she has everything, but Alice knows she is not like other women. Her life is complicated, unpredictable, difficult. Alice does not like pity. All she wants to do, has ever wanted to do, is sing.

Alice has been told not to follow her dreams. So has Tom. But when fate has already dealt a tough hand, it’s time to stop listening to everyone else and only follow their own hearts.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

I don’t even know where to start this review, all I can say is that this book is truly unforgettable!!!

It’s all based on the true story of Alice Martineau, a singer looking for a record deal. She is different however, she has cystic fibrosis (CF), which makes life really hard. You can also see that in Alice in the book. She is a great character, very inspirational and full of life. CF is not visible from the outside, which makes it really hard for her.

CF is part of Alice’s life, but is strong and wants to life. She has a dream, fights for it and is ready to achieve it. On the way she has her family and friends and love plays an important role as well. Some other characters have a story to tell as well, which was really refreshing. Alice Peterson managed to create a great storyline around them all.

This story has so many great elements, but I don’t want to give away to much, you have to read it yourself. You will be wowed.

Alice Peterson put a lot into this book, she based it all on a true story, added her own experiences and combined it all into spellbinding, inspirational, uplifting and heart-breaking story. The way she included a difficult topic like this in a story is very impressive. Make sure you have some tissues close by, because you definitely need them. Alice Peterson’s writing is touching, moving and very emotional. Already a definite contender for my Books of the Year!
