The Legacy by Dan Walsh & Gary Smalley

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?

Since reading The Desire last fall, I’ve been curious to know more of both Doug’s and Christina’s story. Luckily, The Legacy, the fourth book of the Restoration series by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley, provided me with just that. It is a great follow-up novel to the previous one, focusing on Doug and Christina while revisiting the entire Anderson family again and tying together the many storylines’ loose ends. It is emotional and heartwarming, especially in its retelling of the classic biblical story of the Prodigal Son. I think any fans of the series will be pleased with this satisfying, concluding novel. It is worth the read.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of The Legacy and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
