Publisher's Summary

In the midst of a bitter family feud, the much divided Rolland family is thrown together when news of their father's untimely passing places them on a red-eye flight from Seattle to Washington D.C. Although, they are physically close in the tight space of the aircraft, Rege, Mark, and Kit are at their farthest distance apart emotionally.

Until the unthinkable happens.

Two hours into the flight, missiles streak across the star-filled sky, the detonation of a nuclear warhead causes the plane to make a forced landing.

A family torn apart are now together living the inconceivable. Circumstances outside of their shelter are dire and the future far from certain.

America is devastated and crippled by the nuclear attacks. Rege, Mark, and Kit must chart out their path deciding what to do and where to go. What is right? What is wrong? Not only for the Rolland Family, but for everyone, survival is the top priority. Each day is a fight against the odds for water and food, while holding on to every ounce of hope they can live long enough to see tomorrow.

    Story
    "This story has no happy ending."

    Such a pity that the information blurb is so fulsome as part of the immediate appeal of this book is the mystery of what is happening aboard red eye flight 24-68, from Seattle to Washington DC. Four members of the same family are on the flight, two brothers, one sister and her teenaged son. They are on their way to a memorial service, following the sudden heart attack of the father of the three siblings. The reader is aware from the opening sentences that their plane will crash but not why and it is the return to four hours previously which really draws the reader into the story as well as introducing most of the main protagonists.

    As the blurb informs us, the tragedy that follows is not theirs alone as they are just a tiny part of a post apocalyptic story, one which is treated by the author with a semblance of reality unusual in such books. There is kindness still mixed into the need to survive as well as death and despair in the "desolate world, grey in colour." And joy. It also raises the questions of how possible it really is to plan for such disasters. Sensitively and beautifully written, there is no happy ending but there is still hope.

    The narration in such a book is even more important than in most, and Andrew Wehrlen's performance slips into perfect synchronicity with the text. A brisk pace, with expressively good intonation and individual, fitting voices for each of the characters helps not only to further breath life into all of the protagonists but also carries the story forward powerfully with emotion but never over-the-top hysteria. His reading is a perfect fit for the whole tone of the book.

    I was very fortunate in being gifted a complimentary copy of What Tomorrow Brings, at my request, by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you so much. I had not previously encountered any other books by Ms.Druga but will certainly be looking out for others now. This is a book I can warmly recommend not only to readers of post apocalyptic novels but to all interested in people and their reactions within families and under duress. A masterful audio book.

    "Good book. Needs a sequel"

    On the whole I enjoyed this book. Quite a few twists in the plot. But i think a lot more could have been done with the story. Example,Two very ill people (radation poisoned) went from Colorado to Washington to Spokane. Nothing in the middle. In a country where little works no plot. But if in someways a simple story, it was good. I would like to see a sequel. Very good narration. A good voice.

    It was hard to stop listening untilI finished. . I like how she works with just a few main characters in her book and you feel like you are with them as you are listening to the audiobook.

    Story
    "Entertaining."

    The Rolland family is flying to their fathers funeral. The whole family seems to be fighting and all of them are in separate parts of the plane. A few hours in, their plane starts falling out of the sky. Something that looks like a bomb falling is seen and next thing they know, they have crash landed. While trying to find each other, they are also running against the clock because radiation fallout is quickly closing in!!

    This was a really good read. The plot was fast paced and intense. While it tells the whole struggling to survive in the aftermath of a nuclear bomb, it also focuses on the family drama that is the Rolland family. I liked that we get more than the average struggling to survive story! Character wise, there is quite a few, but all are well written. I liked getting to know them and also finding out about how the family came to be fighting. All are well developed and I hope we see more from them.

    In all, this was a quick and entertaining read. I was drawn in from the first page and it held my attention till the end. I look forward to reading more from this author.

    Andrew B. Wehrlen did a great job. He is easy to listen to and tells the story well. His inflections and cadences were spot on and he brought the book to life.

    I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

    "Okay story, bad narration."

    I really wanted to like this book. The premise sounded interesting, but it didn't hold my attention. To be honest, I got lost in the bad narration. His voice was actually kind of pleasing, and he read well enough throughout the strictly narrated parts, but his dialogue between characters was sorely lacking. For one thing, all voices sounded the same. There was no voice inflection whatsoever. But to make matters worse, it was like he was snapping out the words, almost like a kid defending himself against another kid. I don't really know how to explain it other than to say that his pacing was very off. It totally ruined how I was picturing the story, made the writing feel juvenile. I couldn't finish.

    Story
    "A New “EOTWAWKI” Twist"

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    What would happen if you were on a plane when bombs dropped on the US? What about if there were military and other important people on your plane, how would that make you feel? What if you found out that this plane was booked for ulterior motives? All of these questions and a lot more are answered in What Tomorrow Brings by Jacqueline Druga.

    Druga does a great job putting a new twist on the end of the world as we know it (EOTWAWKI) genre with a partially-political fueled book that shows what would happen if there were people pulling strings (and you didn’t know it). It’s hard to explain without sounding like an idiot because I don’t want to spoil the story for you.

    What Tomorrow Brings tells a story about a few different end of the world situations from different points of view but almost all of them from the same family. It was an interesting take on a crowded genre. Also actually dropping bombs (and having scenes where people actually saw them drop) is something new for me too. Most Post-Apocalyptic books take place after the bombs dropped (hence “post”), but this one happened pre and during. Now, I’ve definitely read other books like this, but it felt slightly different.

    The narration done by Wehrlen was perfect for this. He was able to add the right amount of drama without being overly dramatic. He made an already easy to read book easier to finish.

    Overall, the story was interesting and it felt like a slightly new take on an apocalyptic story. I’m interested to see if there are other books in the works with the same cast of characters.

    I was voluntarily provided with a copy of this book. It has not affected my review in any way.

    Story
    "A Scary Look at the Future"

    The most frightening thing about this story is it’s plausibility. With the way things are going with North Korea, a nuclear holocaust is a very real, if still unlikely, threat.
    This story focuses on the plight of one family, that of the Secretary of Defense. It should surprise no one that the families of high ranking government officials get priority treatment in the event of such attacks. In this case, most of them are on the same plane to attend their father’s funeral. When the first missiles strike their plane crashes, separating them and driving the plot.
    While the US tools in the aftermath of the nuclear attack, this story seems to have a slightly more optimistic view of the state of the country than does the book One Second After, by William R. Forstchen. Still, it is a fascinating read.
    Andrew B. Wehrlen has a unique style. His pace sometimes varies at unforeseen, but I have always found him very enjoyable to listen to. His character voices are easily distinguished, though this story did not allow him to demonstrate his full range, as some of his other readings have. I recommend looking through the titles he’s read to find other titles to listen to.

    Story
    "Slow Developing Apocalypse"

    This book is a fairly good story of a family caught in a nuclear war. They are spread out across the country, and deal with plane crashes, food shortages, and radiation among other challenges. The story line moves along jumping from character to character with a lot of back story. The characters and situations they encounter are fairly realistic and people act as you'd expect with a few irrational situations. This is really more a story about how people in a family interact in bad times than a disaster novel. The book concludes with several loose ends, so a sequel is possible.
    The narration by Andrew Wehrlen is excellent and other than a glaringly mispronounced city name that is correct mid way through the book, it is overall, very well done.

    Story
    "Do you think a nuclear holocaust would affect you?"

    This is a very different take on the post-apocalyptic story. The nuclear holocaust is the main issue and this story does an excellent job of describing the issues that go along with such an event. As we are not truly feeling the risk of such an event at this point in time, the vague reasoning behind the event in this story leaves the story just a little bit lacking in the realism department. However the rest of the story more than makes up for that small issue. The story follows a few key characters in different storylines and does so quite well. Always engaging so you will want to just keep listening. Although this book is only almost 7 hours long it does a reasonable job of telling the whole story. I did feel the end coming although when it arrived it seemed a bit rushed. This one could use a good follow up novel. The story “Alas Babylon” plays an important role in this story and that makes me want to read that one as well. It is not needed for this story though.

    Andrew B. Wehrlen did an excellent job bringing the story to life and his voice fit the genre well. Although this was written by a woman and there were a couple of major female roles in this book I did not notice any issues with his voiced characters.

    Story
    "Request a different ending please."

    A family consisting of two brothers, sister, and uncle are on a midnight flight from Seattle to Washington D.C. to attend their father’s/brother’s funeral. As they travel cross-country passengers see flashes of light, huge explosions, and ultimately several mushroom clouds lighting the sky towards the eastern coast. Naturally terror and panic ensues as the meaning of these sights sink in. The accompanying EMP strikes, the plane loses all power and is forced to crash-land as jet liners are not known to glide so well. Our family survives the crash, only to find themselves in the midst of a nuclear war! It is here that the true story begins. Druga has spun a compelling and emotional tale of family love, strength, and unity under the direst circumstances. Prior to this flight, distance and minor annoyances may have come between them over the years. All this must be put aside now in order to work together, gaining strength from their family bond, and together face the day-to-day challenges that this global disaster puts before them. We also get a brief glimpse of our government’s procedures regarding Continuity of Government (COG) and Continuity of Government Readiness Conditions (COGCON) should a disaster such as this ever befall us. My only negative is that I think the book deserved a different ending.

    Story
    "Less about survival, more about feelings."

    I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

    This book isn't quite what I had expected. By reading the synopsis, I was thinking there will be some family drama at the beginning but once the nukes fall, it will turn into a gritty post-nuclear survival story. That's not how it turned out actually. Sure, there are families scattered across the nation, fighting to survive in the ruined country and escaping radiation etc. But the book focuses more on the "feelings" of the characters. It's more about how families behave during a crisis. If that's not what you are here for, this book isn't for you.

    The narration was tad disappointing. Most of the characters sounded the same and there was no infliction. Kinda put me off.

    "Very entertaining and enjoyable"

    I really enjoyed this book. I was looking forward to it and was not disappointed at all. It's a very entertaining, engaging and enjoyable story that pulled me in immediately and held my attention from start to finish.

    It's well written with an interesting storyline and really good cast of well rounded characters.

    This is not your happy go lucky everyone survives apocalypse. Even if they live through the plane crash that is about to happen they are facing a life changing catastrophic event. Not all of them are going to survive. It's a glimpse into the different situations and hardships that would be faced by many in this type of event. No matter who you are, who you know or how well connected you are not everyone is going to survive. I liked that their father tried to warn them in his own way.

    This is the first book by Jacqueline Druga that I have read, but it wont be my last evidently I have been missing out.

    Andrew B Wehrlen once again does a fantastic job with the narration. He has one of those voices that just pulls you right into a story and makes it come to life. No matter what type of story it is his voice just seems to fit. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Great character voices. Perfect tone and delivery for each situation and emotion of the characters. Very enjoyable.
