Return to Me

I have always loved Robin Hatcher's books and this one is no different. It is a story of redemption that is reminiscent of the prodigal son story. I really loved the way that it gave the point of view of the "prodigal," the dad, and the older sibling, which was a sister in this case. It really made me think about my own attitudes about my siblings and friends at church who leave for a while and then return to God and church. Check this book out for a motivating and emotional read!

About the Book

Discouraged and destitute, her dreams shattered, Roxy Burke is going home.

But what lies beyond the front door?

Rejection...or a bright future?

A lot has changed since Roxy Burke escaped small town life to become a Nashville star. Her former boyfriend Wyatt has found Christ and plans to become a minister. Her sister Elena, who comforted Wyatt when Roxy ran away, is now his fiancee. Her father Jonathan, a successful businessman, is heartbroken over the estrangement of Roxy from the family.

Now Roxy...her inheritance from her grandmother squandered, her hopes of stardom dashed...finds her way home...not by choice but because it's her only option. Her father's love and forgiveness surprise her, but her very presence throws the contented Burke family into turmoil, filling Roxy with guilt and shame.

Elena is shocked to discover doubt and resentment in her heart after her father's easy acceptance of Roxy into the family circle. Wyatt wrestles with doubts about marrying Elena. And Roxy struggles to accept forgiveness. Isn't she more deserving of rejection? As the story of the prodigal plays out, each member of the Burke family must search for and accept God's grace.

This is an excellent book that you will definitely be blessed by and enjoy reading. To purchase it, you can go here.
