Praise for This Time Next Year We’ll Be Laughing
 
“A beautifully rendered, elegant work of literary architecture joining the present to the past. Jacqueline Winspear’s memoir of an English country childhood is also an homage to the remarkable parents whose choices and outlooks shaped her. Their stories of hardship and gratitude became hers, and hers became this unforgettable book.”
—Hope Edelman, New York Times bestselling author of Motherless Daughters and The Aftergrief
 
“Endearing, touching, amusing, heartfelt, and astonishing . . . It’s a love letter and a beautiful work of gratitude toward the people and the place that made the author what and who she is.”
—Elizabeth George, New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Lynley novels
 
“This is a memoir both evocative and unflinching. Without a trace of self-pity, Jacqueline Winspear portrays a childhood of rural poverty overcome by hard manual labor, lifelong love amid emotional wounds, and a profound understanding of how ‘the gift of place’ creates meaning . . . An illuminating portrait of a time and place that is as optimistic as it is deeply moving.”
—Sally Bedell Smith, author of Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life
 
“Jacqueline Winspear has created a memoir of her English childhood that is every bit as engaging as her Maisie Dobbs novels, just as rich in character and detail, history and humanity. Her writing is lovely, elegant and welcoming.”
—Anne Lamott, New York Times bestselling author of Almost Everything: Notes on Hope

“[Winspear’s] words are hopeful and bright, and imbued with a resilience that will resonate with readers . . . The book will appeal well beyond Winspear’s fan base as a literary memoir deeply linked to history and as a meditation on place and family.”
Library Journal, Starred Review

“[Winspear] draws distinctive portraits of postwar England, altogether different from the U.S., where she has since settled, and her unsettling struggles within the rigid British class system. An engaging childhood memoir and a deeply affectionate tribute to the author’s parents.”
Kirkus Reviews
