Smack Dab News

Sheila O'Connor's new novel Until Tomorrow, Mr. Marsworth, will be released by G. P. Putnam's Sons on April 3, 2018.   Set in 1968, Until Tomorrow, Mr. Marsworth is the story of feisty Reenie Kelly and her friendship with a kindly, reclusive neighbor, Mr. Marsworth.  Told entirely through letters, the novel follows Reenie through a summer of hard lessons about war, and peace, and family, and what it means to follow your own conscience even when you have to stand alone. Selected as a Indie Next and a Midwest Connections pick, the novel has received praise from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, VOYA and others. 

"The close-up on the remarkable relationship between Reenie and Mr. Marsworth shines here, as do the larger historical insights and the book’s resonant themes of pacifism and patriotism." Publisher's Weekly
