9780899660271: Tomorrow is Forever

Set in World War II-era Hollywood, New York Times-bestselling author Gwen Bristow presents an emotional tour de force about a woman haunted by the ghost of her husband who died in World War I For two decades, Elizabeth Herlong has been a devoted Hollywood wife, watching as her husband Spratt built an empire in the budding motion picture industry. But part of her still yearns for her first husband, who perished in France during World War I. As a second great war rages in Europe, something happens that will draw Elizabeth back to the old days, awakening feelings and longings that she thought she would never experience again. One night, Spratt introduces her to a German screenwriter, a crippled veteran of the last war attempting to make a new life for himself. Something in his face stirs Elizabeth's heart, setting her on a journey of discovery about the meaning of true love and the things that war cannot destroy. Tomorrow Is Forever was made into a film starring Claudette Colbert, Orson Welles, and Natalie Wood in 1946.

About the Author:

Gwen Bristow (1903–1980), the author of seven bestselling historical novels that bring to life momentous events in American history, such as the siege of Charleston during the American Revolution ( Celia Garth) and the great California gold rush ( Calico Palace), was born in South Carolina, where the Bristow family had settled in the seventeenth century. After graduating from Judson College in Alabama and attending the Columbia School of Journalism, Bristow worked as a reporter for New Orleans’  Times-Picayune from 1925 to 1934. Through her husband, screenwriter Bruce Manning, she developed an interest in longer forms of writing—novels and screenplays.

After Bristow moved to Hollywood, her literary career took off with the publication of  Deep Summer, the first novel in a trilogy of Louisiana-set historical novels, which also includes  The Handsome Road and  This Side of Glory. Bristow continued to write about the American South and explored the settling of the American West in her bestselling novels  Jubilee Trail, which was made into a film in 1954, and in her only work of nonfiction,  Golden Dreams. Her novel  Tomorrow Is Forever also became a film, starring Claudette Colbert, Orson Welles, and Natalie Wood, in 1946.
