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 THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Another great story in this wonderful series by two great authors! This story features the youngest son, Doug. And like my son did, like many young me do, Doug turns his back on God. Being on his own, now a college student, he finds different friends, and different things to enjoy, that is for a time. I know first hand the strain on a family when this happens, and a book like this one would have been very helpful. Though this is a fiction story, the family and spiritual values are the same as real life.

If you have teenagers, this book will be very encouraging to you. And even if your child hasn’t turned his back on the Lord, it can happen to the strongest Christian. I highly recommend The Legacy for those dealing with young people of any age.

I received this book from Revell to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
