…Steeped in the rich history of the turbulent pre-Civil War and Civil War years, TOO LATE FOR TOMORROW sets readers deep into the heart of the issue of slavery and its consequences on this nation. Deftly intertwined with the issue of slavery, Ms Johnson adds Jeremy and Gabby's personal tale of love, deception, and obsession.
I wouldn't consider this a light read, or mere entertainment, but an attention involving novel. TOO LATE FOR TOMORROW is nevertheless a marvelously written story from the pen of a wonderfully erudite author. Readers who love Civil War period romances will adore TOO LATE FOR TOMORROW. I highly recommend it.
The Word on Romance
An exciting and heartwarming story of family love! This is a must-read book for anyone who loves historical romances, particularly those of the Civil War era. The characters are rich and full, with family ties and love being the strings that bind them all in one way or another. This is a novel of a family forced to deal with strong beliefs and opinions, frequently at odds with each other, but always with love enough to fill even the reader's heart. You will want to read every word on every page of this Civil War saga. I have just three more words to say: sequel, sequel, sequel!

Diana Lee Johnson is a native of Northern Virginia. By day she’s the Purchasing Agent for a municipal government. By night (and weekends) she’s a writer. “I weave a little of myself into everything I write. It’s like having children, but with a little more control, and a lot less pain.”
Just as her tastes in reading vary, Diana enjoys writing fiction in several genres hoping to entertain a variety of readers with drama, suspense, humor, and romance. Her favorite venue is historical. She loves the discoveries her research unearths as much as stretching the limits of possibilities for the time with characters you can love and hate, or sit and laugh at for their foibles, wondering what they’ll do next.
Stories flow through her mind like movies projecting in her head, waiting for her to find time to write them down. Luckily, she has a mental switch somewhere that turns them off allowing her to work at her job.
