Pride, betrayal, forgiveness . . . and the eternal sea. The Prodigal tells the mystical tale of four people on Ocracoke Island whose destiny is tied to an abandoned schooner, thought to have been lost at sea more than a century ago, that one day drifts ashore. Marcus O’Reilly, a renegade Catholic priest, must confront his inner demons. Ibrahim Joseph, a Bahamian fugitive, must face his past. Aidan Sharpe, a fallen lawyer, struggles with self-doubt and his growing affection for Molly McGregor, a fearless towboat captain who cannot find the courage to love. They will all be drawn into a 2,000-year-old mystery that unfolds with the reappearance of the ship.
The Prodigal is available at these retailers.

My Review

Prodigal will intrigue your imagination with it's heartfelt story of facing your demons and overcoming them.

Prodigal begins with learning the history of each character in the story, which later reveals how they all come together within the story.  Each character is unique in every way, except for the fact they each are battling personal demons of their own.  Their friendships unite for a common goal, to achieve forgiveness and the promise of adventure.

I was so excited about the direction of this story and surprised by the mystery of it.  Not only do you learn about four different people from all walks of life, you discover an ancient mystery that totally took me off guard.  It was brilliantly thought out and grasped my attention.  I didn't quite understand the prologue at first, but soon discovered how it all tied together.  Mixed in with all of this is the suspense of an adventure that leads to redemption in so many forms, it's difficult to explain.  It's emotional, heartfelt, and romantic in its setting on the tiny island of Ocracoke.

You won't be disappointed in this beautifully written novel.
