A Song For Tomorrow

- When the odds are against you, that’s when you need to dream the most.

A story of defiance, spirit, humour, love, music, courage and ultimately love. 

A story that needs to be told… 

A story inspired by the life of Alice Martineau. 


Tom fell in love with Alice the moment he saw her. He realises that being with her will be 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 and 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 them a tough hand, it’s time to stop listening to everyone else and only follow their hearts.

A Song for Tomorrow is a moving and uplifting story of triumph over adversity, inspired by the singer and songwriter, Alice Martineau. Songs from Alice’s album, Daydreams, feature throughout the novel.
