Unfortunately, No Purchase On Tomorrow is classified in the romance genre. In this writer’s opinion, romance is fleeting and love is eternal, but my opinion is only that.
No Purchase On Tomorrow is a love story involving two sisters. Dr. Deborah Finch is beautiful and perfect in every way and is every man’s dream, but her younger sister, Dr. Elizabeth Calloway, who is beautiful in her own way, is physically challenged and is confined to a wheelchair. Each sister has their doctorate in their respective fields. Dr. Finch, in the field of education and Dr. Calloway is a language scholar.
A spin off storm from a hurricane does extensive tree damage in Tallahassee and Tommy Lee, The Tree Monkey, enters their lives. Tommy Lee is a robust man among men. He is quiet smitten by the beautiful Dr. Finch. As their relationship develops, Dr. Finch’s job begins to demand extensive travel. Unable to assist her sister Betty to the different cultural events at the university, she asks Tommy Lee if he would mind escorting her unfortunate sister. Tommy Lee reluctantly agrees, but for every cultural event he attends with Dr. Calloway he takes her on a “redneck outing.” Tommy Lee and Dr. Calloway not only begin to enjoy each others company, but look forward to and anticipate their next time together.
“Tommy Lee, do you love me?” Dr Calloway asked.
“Yes,” he manages to say, “but…”
“Will you make love to me?”
Aware of her condition, he asked wondering, “How?”
“I don’t know, but there has to be a way,” she answered with a smile, anticipating.
No Purchase On Tomorrow is a tragic comedy. Intimacy is not graphic and is only implied. Anyone would be comfortable reading this tender love story. The story has several great characters and touches lightly on dance, including ballet, art, deep sea fishing, scuba diving, and river boat exploring.
No Purchase On Tomorrow has many descriptive macho scenes to entice any sporting male reader and likewise, many scenes to satisfy the love interest in us all.
