Summary
"Set in Brooklyn in the 1920's Tomorrow will be better tells the story of Margy Shannon, a shy, joyfully optimistic young woman just out of school who lives with her parents and witnesses how a lifetime of hard work and poverty has worn them down. Determined not to end up like them, Margy takes refuge in her dreams of a better life. Her goals are simple: to find a husband she loves, have children, and live in a nice home. When she meets Frankie Malone, she thinks at last her dreams might be fulfilled. But a devastating tragedy rattles her hopefulness and forces Margy to finally stand up for what she deserves. Filled with the joys and heartbreaks of family life, Tomorrow will be better is told with a simplicity and tenderness that only Betty Smith could write."--Back cover.
