This was a story that that proves with a little faith and forgiveness anything is possible as well as family is all sticks together no matter what. Also with God and time all things will be healed.
This book has so many stories all woven within the book that I uncovered as I read making it an interesting read. The characters had so much to talk and share. As I read about the brothers, Keith & Michael and their estranged relation and how time is the biggest healer I was moved by the familial love. Brothers, love, lies and how all of them find their place in life in this book by Michelle.
This book focuses on relationships and family and drives home the fact that love can make all things possible. Michael may be the hero of the book but I felt that Veronica was the real ‘prodigal’. Her story touched me deeply as she fought her past and need to connect with her loved ones. Her spirit and faith were so moving. I love strong women characters and Michelle has penned her so perfectly.
Keith with is deep faith and family support makes the perfect man to bring his errant brother home. I found his character so calm and nurturing. The way he handled all the confusion and accusations around him while being protective and strong – the perfect brother, father and husband. His faith is so strong that he makes others believe and turns foes into friends.
Mindy, Gina, Bill and Lauren add to the story with each character making me wonder who is the real culprit and is Michael really innocent. It was Keith’s faith and the fast-paced story that kept me intrigued and interested as the story got stickier before it got sorted! :D Well, etched characters and family members, a few criminals and lots of drama made this book a quick yet satisfying read.
The Fall of the Prodigal also addresses an issue often swept under carpets and hidden behind closed doors – mental illness. Depression, Bi-polar disorder and other forms of illness that alter our minds and are very rampant in our world today yet acceptance and help quite scant. The way the disease is shown in the book and how capable are people of living double lives. The surprise at the end of the book was just too good and so well scripted. I do not wish to give away the surprise so no more except the fact that ‘Tiger’, Michael and Keith could not have handled it without each other and their faith.
Perfect ending and quite the drama reminding me of the famous lines, ‘it is not the end if everything is not alright.’ The Prodigal finally came home.
(I won a copy of this book in a giveaway, this is my honest review.)
