CaroljoFarmington, MOAge: Over 65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A Prodigal SonOctober 28, 2015CaroljoFarmington, MOAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4The Legacy is the fourth book in the Restoration Series and is the story of a prodigal son from the parents' side. You will empathize with Doug's parents hurt and frustration as he makes unwise choices while attending college.
Dan Walsh never disappoints! I have not read the other books in the Restoration series but this book was good as a stand alone title. While I enjoyed this book, I did not find it as outstanding as his other books. I would still recommend The Legacy to others. I received this book from a Soul Inspirationz giveaway.
sally893 Stars Out Of 5O.K.July 23, 2015sally89Quality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I have read several of Mr. Walsh's books and I have enjoyed them very much. This book, however, was not as good. I found myself skimming much of the material by halfway through the book. And I did not like the ending. I can't say why (without giving away the plot). So, I'm not saying. I didn't like this book that much.

Fitzysmom4 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMMay 19, 2015FitzysmomQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The Legacy brings the Restoration Series to a very satisfying close. This volume centers on the youngest son Doug Anderson. Doug is away at college and is bent on living a lifestyle that rejects the one his parents embrace. The problem is that Doug is financially dependent upon his parents. He finds himself in a position where he has to choose between what he wants and what his family expects.
The story of the rest of the Anderson family and Christina also continues. Christina is attracted to Doug but the decisions he's making leave her with little choice but to move on. The obvious next step is to start accepting the overtures from Ted. But the spark just isn't there.
My favorite characters still remain Uncle Henry and Aunt Myra. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all have relatives like these two? Their sound and gentle advice to tough family situations are what make this fictional series so applicable to our real life stories. No matter what stage of life you are in there is something in this series that will speak to your situation.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
Booklover105 Stars Out Of 5A great continuation of this seriesMay 2, 2015Booklover10Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I always like it when two of my top authors join forces to write an unforgettable novel. I was sold on Gary Smalley's writing in fiction when he joined forces with Karen Kingsbury. Dan Walsh has been a favorite from his first book I've read by him a few years ago. The Restoration Series that Walsh and Smalley have written is a collection of unforgettable stories. They each deal with real life issues and tough issues. Some issues are marriage issues, all are relationship issues in one way or another, and all issues have lead to restoration within those relationships. However, they each did have a cost to pay for their choices.
Book 4 continues to follow the Anderson family. Jim Anderson is still restoring the problems that his children have faced because of his choices as a father in the previous years. However, since he has begun to change, he is seeking to reach out to each one in his family and restore those relationships. This book focuses on his son, Doug.
Doug has made decisions that many today make. He's living a double life and has to hit rock bottom in order for his life to turn around. It's painful for his family to watch, but he doesn't want to listen to anyone. Even his friendship with Christina has stalled.
I like this series for another reason: because I always learn something new about interacting with my children. In this book, I learned how treating your child like the prodigal son looks like. It's not easy and I can imagine my heart would be broken. However, I also saw how it can also give them room to be reached by God. It leads to a relationship where the child knows their parent loves them and is a safe place, even if they don't agree with the decisions.
I sincerely hope that there are more stories in this series. This has become like the Baxter series by Karen Kingsbury. I don't want to say goodbye to the Anderson family!
I received this book free from Revell Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
