Whatever Tomorrow Brings by Lori Wick

Kaitlin's parents are missionaries in Hawaii. Kaitlin, Sean and Marcail have never been off of the island. For Kaitlin's 20th birthday her parents surprise her with tickets for the whole family to go home to San Francisco, California.

Once they arrive at their Aunt Maureen's in San Francisco the Donovan children find that this is not just a vacation trip. Their mom is very ill and needs to see a doctor. When events happen that have their father returning to Hawaii and leaving Kaitlin, Sean and Marcail stateside they are bereft, but they know they can trust in God whatever tomorrow brings.

Not counting on the advances that their cousin makes towards Kaitlin the Donovan's decided to pack up and head to Santa Rosa where Kate applies for a teaching job. There they meet the Taylor family and their son Marshall Riggs who owns the mercantile. The family takes the Donovan's under their wings and soon a romance blooms between Rigg and Kaitlin. Expecting their father to return any time the Donovan children are upset when he puts off returning any time soon. Kaitlin is feeling the strain of being 20 years old and being responsible for her siblings. Sean is becoming angry and finding it hard to hide his feelings. Will their life be in turmoil until their father returns?

This is the first book in the Californian series which is one of my favorite series. It is a wonderful romance that I enjoy reading over and over again. It never gets old for me. The spiritual aspect of the book is another favorite of mine. It isn't left to be assumed that the characters are Christian. Salvation is clearly mapped out. Faith is real in the characters lives.

I read this as part of my Contentment Reading Challenge:
