How would you feel if your world suddenly turned upside down when tragedy strikes and you go from being a carefree college kid to the guardian of your younger siblings?

For Keith Hanson, a fatal car accident that took his parents lives will change his life forever when he finds out that their will has made him the guardian over his fifteen year old sister Dana and seven year old twins Leo and Linda. How does one go from being a college student to being a parent of three? Is Keith up for the challenge, or will this daunting responsibility prove to be too much for him?

Keeper by Surprise is a poignant story of one young man's challenge to become a parent to his three younger siblings after a tragic car accident takes the lives of his parents. Written in the third person narrative, author Laurie Larsen weaves a poignant tale of heartbreak, reality, growth, responsibility and resilience that will simply pull at your heart strings. The daunting challenges that Keith faces in his journey to provide a stable family dynamic for his siblings provides enough twists and turns that engages the reader's emotions. And with young social worker, Lisa Carle, Keith finds a new romance that blossoms along the way, until a deeply held secret by Lisa threatens to destroy them.

Keeper by Surprise is a warmhearted story written with thoughtfulness and a dose of reality. Author Laurie Larsen does a wonderful job of weaving a tale of love of family with a tender romance in the mix. This coming of age and ready made family story demonstrates the resilience of love to overcome life's challenges, and that love really does conquer all.
