- Kirkus Reviews on The Prodigal
Book Excerpt from Chapter 20
The Vineyard grabbed my attention as soon as I started reading and the first part of the book is still my favorite part of the story. Three college friends, Charlotte, Dory and Turner reunite at Dory's place in The Vineyard ten years after seeing other. Each with their own personal soul searching story that interlinks making the story flow together, keeping you well and truly intrigued, grasping you to read on.
As I mentioned I was drawn to one particular character in the story, Charlotte, who's sadness and despair weighed far too heavy for her that she could no longer carry on. What happens next will have your undivided attention and gives you the understanding of the true face of suicide, the author I felt did an amazing job with this.
The story is a lot more than the girls reunion, we also have an elusive spiritual figure known by locals as 'The Fisherman', to the girls as 'Enoch', who seems to have miraculous gifts of kindness and healing. This innocent, beautiful soul wants peace and beauty in the world and for the people in it and he will help the girls in their time of need in ways they certainly would not expect. Yet not everyone sees The Fisherman in good light.
There is some sexual content in the story so I would recommend this for adults.
Certainly a reminder that if we slowed down in our lives we would find the real person we want to be. A story of faith, real friendship and mystery after mystery that keeps you reading on to find out more.
