Blog Tour Review: By This Time Tomorrow by Charlotte Butterfield

Synopsis:

Jessica Bay has it all – and it’s all too much. Between moody teenagers, a hectic job and a husband who can recall that the last time they slept together was 632 days ago but somehow can’t remember to put the bins out, Jess is close to breaking point.

Desperate for change, she moves the family to a tiny island in the English Channel. An island that has a secret: it can take you back in time to relive any day in your past. To have another go at doing it right.

But as Jess becomes dizzy with the fact that she can, she forgets to consider if she should. Because changing even one moment in your past will change your whole future in unknowable ways. How much of her supposedly imperfect life is Jess willing to gamble? And will she realise the risks before she loses everything?

Review:

By This Time Tomorrow is a marvellous read and a unique and refreshing take on a time travel story. Jess is presented with a work relocation opportunity to take her family away to a remote island far away from the struggles they’re all encountering in London. She discovers a bench atop a hill with a beautiful view of the sunset….her life begins to change hereon in. Jess is compelled to keep revisiting the past to try to make positive changes to influence her ‘not so perfect’ present life. The premise is unique, focusing more on the changes that happen when returning back to the future, and the knock on effect these changes have, rather than what happens whilst visiting the past. This is a beautiful story which will really tug at the heart strings. The writing is excellent and the characters are extremely relatable and likeable.

This is not so much a love story but more about a family trying to sort out their problems. However, it’s wonderful following Jess’s and Fergus’s relationship, watching them grow and develop as a couple over the course of the story and ultimately turning their relationship around. I really enjoyed losing myself in Jess’s life, the highs and lows and the sticky situations she finds herself in and there are moments that are both touching and humorous This is a cleverly crafted story, which is great fun to read and the perfect escapism.
