About the Author
Michelle De Bruin grew up in Southern Iowa and graduated from Eddyville High School. These beautiful memories of childhood spent on her family’s farm are the inspiration to the setting in the books of the Tomorrow series.
After high school, Michelle received an Associate’s Degree in Office Management from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa. She returned to the family farm and later married Tom De Bruin.
Tom and Michelle and their two teenage sons, Mark and John, live in Pella where Michelle works as the Spiritual Services Facilitator for Christian Opportunity Center. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Music and in Religion with a Christian Ministries emphasis from Central College in Pella, Iowa.
In 2015, Michelle began writing and joined the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) where she discovered that the stories she wrote for fun might actually amount to something. She finished her manuscript for Hope for Tomorrow and eventually found a home for it with a small publisher of Christian fiction.
Characters that bring to life the delights of farm and small town living, whispers of Dutch heritage, and Christian faith make Michelle’s stories distinct.

I often play the what if games and traveling back in time is one I enjoy doing. I never wonder about the future because that can be kinda scary. The past is what makes us who we are. This book fit into my imagination just right. This is why I love this author. I love how she can make my imagination come alive with her stories and the many awesome characters. The plot was great! I liked the way Hedlund has added a little bit of everything so it keeps the reader's interest. Pardon me but there were some scenes that I skipped over because I didn't care for those type. Another reason I love Hedlund's books is that she adds just the right element of faith throughout her novels. This one included. This one will also be added to my keeper shelf! I highly recommend! My thanks to Revell Publishing for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
