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 such a life, the siblings are separated and raised in two vastly different social worlds. Just when both are beginning to flourish and years have healed some of their wounds, their long-awaited papa returns and reunites them—bringing demands with him. Nan is expected to marry a rich suitor she’s never liked, and Heath is expected to forsake his gentle spirit and become the hardened man his father always was.

Dangers unfold, secret love develops, fights ensue, and murder upsets the worlds Heath and Nan have built for themselves.

They’ve waited their whole lives for their papa to return, for tomorrow to come—but now that it has, will they be able to see through to the truth and end this whirlwind of a nightmare before it costs one of their lives?

More from Hannah

Love interests me. Not just in the romantic sense, but in every sense, because love is the driving emotion behind so much of what we do. It’s the heartbeat of everything. What do we have but love? Yet isn’t it the very essence of our greatest pain?


Sometimes it doesn’t make sense. Sometimes love has no reason. Like a tumultuous wind or a wet branch that sways in different directions, love is often petulant and aimless and powerful. But sometimes it’s soft, like a flower lifting dewy petals to the sunshine. The epitome of everything good, sweet, and true.


What makes love change? What makes two friends who have always been fraternal one day confess romantic affection? How much wrong, how much affliction, does it take for sweet love to sizzle into hatred? Even then, is it really hatred? Or merely the charred crust of the adoration still throbbing beneath? And how strong are the cords of new love? Will they break at every pull and tug, or are they more unfaltering than anyone might think?


Maybe those are silly questions. Maybe, like snowflakes, every heart knows a different answer. But if I explored anything in When Tomorrow Came, it was this. I glided through the story and felt love shift from brotherly to intimate, from hopeful to disappointed, from untested to proven, from safe to betrayed.


Just as love is the heartbeat of life, it is also the heartbeat of this story. I hope you will find yourself falling in love with the characters and their journey as much as I did.


What an emotional journey the author has taken readers on in this book. I was immediately drawn to Heath and his sister Nan. Abandoned on the streets by their father they  had to beg and steal for  food. Their shelter was nothing more than a place to try to keep warm. I loved how faithful they were and held on to the promise their father told them before he left. He told them  not to leave from their spot because he was coming back to get them. After a long  time their dreams vanished  and knew in their heart he was not coming anytime soon.

It is hard not to talk about Nan without also mentioning Heath. Their bond was powerful and Heath was always there to protect his sister. As you read the story you will see how their lives went separately but they never forgot each other. Nan is such a strong character but she also had this innocence about her. Heath was determined yet would take blame if it would save his sister in a situation. I felt the emotions from these two characters deeply and appreciate how the  author shows how different yet the  sane their journey took them. 

The story does   deal with sone sensitive subjects like abuse and alcoholism which may be a trigger for some readers. We see the ugly side of two characters who represent evil as they use others. There is someone that comes into Nan’s life that shows her how  a lady should be treated. Gilbert was wise and compassionate as he tried to win Nan over. It is easy to see why Nan is guarded around people when she has heard nothing but cruel words from her father. 

I don’t think I can put into words how evil Nan and Heath’s father was. He had no guilt when it came to using his daughter  for his own selfish reasons. When she pleads with him I cried with her. Heath comes to the rescue but it may cost him his life or freedom. 

At the close of the  book, it was a little unsettling at times but we do see how forgiveness can set you free from the things that keep you from happiness. In the  end the truth wins out  as we see a new beginning  for others.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
