{{Book Review}} The Legacy by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley

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*
"The Legacy" is book 4 of the Restoration Series. Doug is a junior in college is leading two lives; the one he shows his family and the one he has with his friends. What he doesn't seem to realize is how much his family worries about him. When those two worlds collide, he’ll have to  choose who he wants to be before it’s too late.

This is a "prodigal son" type story. Doug is the youngest in the Anderson family and is following the typical college kid pattern. He strays from the ways his parents have raised him and starts participating in activities they would not be happy about. He starts by leading a double life, which we all know cannot be hidden forever. 

If you want to know what happens, you'll have to read the book for yourself...because I don't want to spoil it for anyone. But I promise it's good! 

The emotionally gripping conclusion to the series critics are calling . . .
