The Restoration Series Book 4
A young man on his own for the first time faces temptations that test his faith and worry his family-and his decisions will cost him more than he thinks. Only the love of a good woman will be the key to his future happiness.
One young man is about to discover the true cost of independence
For years, Doug Anderson has been drifting slowly but steadily away from both his family and his faith. His parents have been trying to reach him before he falls too far. His friend Christina hopes what she is seeing online isn’t true. But sometimes you have to hit bottom before you’re ready to grow up.
Just as things begin to settle down a bit, Doug’s life takes a turn that requires every bit of faith and patience for both his family and Christina–whose growing feelings for Doug, a man who writes her off as not worth his time, keep her off balance. Will Doug’s crisis finally clear his vision and help him focus on what he has right in front of him?
My Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
This prodigal son story about the youngest brother of the Anderson family focuses on Doug Anderson. Doug is living a double life. At home, he pretends to be the upright Christian he was raised to be. At college, he tends to go along with his friends who want nothing to do with God. It all comes crashing in when his family discovers he’s not the man he pretends to be.
Doug’s father, Jim, has gone through a transformation of his own in the first book of the series and wants to show Doug the love the Father in the Bible showed the prodigal son. But as things get worse, he struggles with keeping his emotions under control and holding at bay the controlling man he used to be.
If you haven’t read the entire series, I highly recommend you start with the first book, The Dance.
