The Legacy: A Book Review

About The Book:

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:

Oh my I need to warn you before reading this book, make sure you have a box of tissues nearby. The Legacy is the final book in The Restoration series and it concluded the series very nicely. 

Walsh and Smalley have made a fantastic writing team. Once again, we are introduced to the Anderson family, in particular the youngest son, Doug. The entire series focuses on relationships and it is no different in this final book. This time it focuses on the parent-child relationship and how no matter what we want for our children, they will almost always make choices we may not agree with. Tough topics were discussed throughout this series were difficult at times, and it was no different in this book. That said, while difficult the authors did a wonderful job writing about these topics and allowed the reader to really connect with the characters as the book is read. In this book, it seems that the authors took the story of the Prodigal Son and modernized it. The power of God's healing and restoration of family are two main themes seen in the book and I loved every minute of this book! 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.

BUY IT: You can purchase The Legacy online through Amazon. It is also available through your favorite local Christian book retailer.
