Zaria took the story of the Prodigal son from the Bible with identical twin sisters who love the same man. What can secrets do and living on a lie can hurt others (Family)? This is a must read. She is an author to look out for in the Christian Fiction literature.

This was a very interesting book. It started off kind of slow, and I wanted to put it down. The only reason that I didn’t is because mom said that it was a good book. I liked that the book seemed as though it should end but then the author added a twist every time. I also liked that the author incorporated a lot of different aspects of life causing the reader to have to think about what was going on. I did not like how long it took the book to actually get started or how many times things seemed ...more

I didn't really like the book when I first started reading it; I didn't like the family drama. I could kind of tell that the author wasn't use to writing Christian fiction. At times, the characters were a bit unreasonable and unsympathetic. As I continued to read, the characters became more realistic and understanding of each other. I loved the story of forgiveness, and the way that the book ended was definetly worth reading.

What do you do when your identical twin sister is willing to go to almost any length to take your place as the woman in your husband's life? "Prodigal" is the first book I read by Zaria Garrison. It will not be my last. I don't recall reading a Christian Fiction that was so good. It read like a good drama. There were unexpected twists in the story. There was one twist in the story that I wish was not included. It is a story about how secrets and lies can alter or destroy relationships. It is als ...more
