Tamara is a young overachiever who struggles to go with the flow or focus on anything beyond her Yale aspirations and her photography. A bike accidents sends her back in time to 1967 where she meets Jimmy, the lead singer of a band. Jimmy is sweet and optimistic and free loving, just like most hippies of the time. And Tamara falls completely in love with him. But it’s not her time or her life and she knows she needs to get back to both.
What I loved:
This book is surprising. You never know quite what’s going to happen. The people Tamara meets, the connections to her real life she finds in 1967, it’s such a well crafted story, it’s not possible to forget it. The author obviously did her research because she paints a world that’s so vivid and so historical accurate that it feels like you’re right there with Tamara.
There were several laugh out loud moments, and the cast of characters are a lot of fun.
What was just okay:
The ending was more bittersweet than happy but I’m not sure it could’ve been anything else. It also started rather slowly, but once the pace picked up, it didn’t let go.
Final Verdict: A story with depth, Shine Until Tomorrow features a great storyline, engaging writing, and characters you won’t want to let go of.
