Prodigal Son opening line: Peter McDowell sat in his office, surrounded by cardboard bankers’ boxes after what had been the worst week of his life.
And, it is only going to get worse for Peter. He is going to return to his childhood home in an attempt to salvage what is left of his life and here he will learn truths that hurt an entire community. Can twin brothers really be completely different?
Twin brothers are reunited after twenty years of silence and blame when the prodigal son returns home…In a matter of days, Peter McDowell loses everything he has worked so hard for – including his marriage. Stripped of everything, he has only one place he can retreat to: the home he left twenty years ago. There, he comes face to face with his brother for the first time in years. At first, Peter dreads seeing Michael again – but to his surprise their reunion is tender and real. Only later, as Peter mulls over his late mother’s journals, does he begin to question what lies beneath Michael’s perfect surface. In a race for time, Peter throws caution to the wind to find the truth. What he discovers will change their lives, the lives of their children and an entire town for ever. A riveting novel of secrets, salvation, and redemption from master storyteller Danielle Steel.
It has been over 15 years since I picked up a book written by Danielle Steel and I was really impressed with this one. It was well written, with a great story line and believable characters. I can highly recommend this read.
