Jennifer's Review
Beyond Today is a good book about a girl named Hannah.
While at a friend’s pre-wedding party, she meets a handsome man named Howard. She thinks he is 60 years old based on his name, but then she sees him. 
The two soon fall in love, but due to terrible secrets from their childhood, both are too scared to move forward in their relationship.  
Her friends encourage her to go ahead and date him, so she does, but she soon learns some of his terrible secrets, and when she meets his family for the first time, she soon learns why he hoped they never met. 
What terrible secrets does he harbor? Why won’t he let her near him? And what is his family like that makes him so uncomfortable with them meeting Hannah? 
I give this book 3 stars.

Author Bio
Laura Simpson writes contemporary romance, with a bent towards humour and a little spice. She is also a member of Romance Writers Australia and is part of the Love Sabre Tribe.

As a girl growing up, Laura was lost in the world of Anne of Green Gables and Little Women. This ignited her love of romance although her first published story was about the bushfires that ravaged the area she grew up in when she was only eleven.

During high school, volleyball dominated her life; (there had to be something positive about being 6’1” at thirteen!). Representing Australia from a young age she travelled though Asia before taking up a scholarship at the University of Iowa. Living in America and being a full time athlete in a college town was an eye-opening experience and lots of fun (from what she can remember).

Returning from the States, her career took a different turn as she started working at the Red Cross and completed her Masters of Law in Human Rights. As one of the few non-lawyers in the class, her essays were far more floral than the rest, something that caused the discerning professors to shake their heads.

Through working and studying, she realised that being a lawyer wasn’t for her and that there are other ways to win hearts and minds. While she has spent the last 14 years as an advocate against poverty and homelessness, the desire to change the world through storytelling has only got stronger.

She now lives in Porepunkah in the Alpine Valley of North East Victoria, Australia with her husband, daughter, two dogs and seven chooks. When she isn’t doing the whole mum–thing, working at a homelessness agency, renovating her farmhouse or trying to do laundry bleary-eyed at midnight, she is writing. With two series on the go, and a mind full of ideas, Laura has a bit going on.
