When Tomorrow Came by Hannah Linder

 My thoughts:  The story begins with the destitute plight of two young children who have been left at a tavern with a woman of dubious character to care for them while their father returns to the sea. They are left for years and are currently living on the streets of London. Then little Nan is stuck by a carriage and injured. She is cared for by the well-to-do man who was in the carriage, and ultimately ends up in his home being raised along with his own children.

Little Nan's older brother knows what has happened to her and that the gentleman has taken her into his care since she was alone and in need of care.

Time elapses and Nan is grown and life is good. Her brother lives with the rector and helps in the church. Life is good.

Nan is pursued romantically by a young gentleman on a neighboring estate who is wealthy and titled. But numerous bad things begin happening to this gentleman's home and family and these troubles drift into the lives of Nan and her adoptive family.

The author has a delightful way with words and beautiful descriptive writing. I totally enjoyed reading this book.

About the Book: They Waited Their Whole Lives for Their Papa to Return

Nan and Heath Duncan, siblings abandoned by their papa and abused by their guardian, have no choice but to survive on the London streets. When a kind gentleman rescues Nan from an accident, the siblings are separated and raised in two vastly different social worlds. Just when both are beginning to flourish, their long-awaited papa returns and reunites them—bringing harsh demands with him. Soon dangers unfold, secret love develops, fights ensue, and murder upsets the worlds Heath and Nan have built for themselves. Will they be able to see through to the truth and end this whirlwind of a nightmare before it costs one of their lives?
