The Prodigal Father is a gentle story of deep hurt and reconciliation. I tried to give it a 3.5 star review because it was well written and the characters were believable and likable. My only concern was that it moved more slowly than I like. But many readers prefer a gentler pace. Kara Lynn Russell definitely shows growth as an author.

This story is about Beth and Scott. The story reflects how life can make marriage a roller coaster. I enjoyed reading this whole book. I also enjoyed how Scott took Troy under his wing. I liked how the character, Risa, won over people by just being herself. I respected how the author handled Risa having Down's syndrome. This book was a satisfing, relaxing read.

Really a 3.5 book. I enjoyed this book. Just felt certain story lines could have been better worked on. I also like the fact that this book showed that it was a story of forgiveness and love and the importance of working together to make a marriage and family successful.

This was a very quick read but it had its faults. The prose was almost too simple and parts of the plot irritated me to no end.

This was a good book with a happy ending. It's a little slow at times, but the story is sweet and shows that even a child with a disability is a gift from the God of the Universe.
