This series has good themes, but the execution is not great. It's too much like an over-dramatic soap opera for my taste. What I really enjoyed was Gary Smalley's life advice at the end, which was excellent.
I loved the Redemption Series, as well as the follow-on Sunrise series. I have struggled with what I might have done wrong with my son as his faith is wavering. These books really outline that many other people struggle with the same thing and the answer is prayer!
I've read two of the series and started on the third one. They are excellent reading for non-Christians and Christians. You feel as if you really get to know the families as you read. It's hard to put the books down.
