    The fourth and final installment in Walsh and Smalley's Restoration series, following The Desire (2014), rings all too true as it follows Doug Anderson as he attempts independence for the first time. While delving deeper into a lifestyle far from his parents' Christian beliefs, Doug learns how much more difficult things are without the support of faith and family. Meanwhile, his parents, Jim and Marilyn, struggle with questions about where they went wrong raising their youngest son and how they should respond to his poor behavior, while at the same time celebrating the progress of the rest of their family. Doug's rebellion is complicated by his ties to Christina, the young lady who rents from his parents, and who is tugging his heartstrings back toward home. This close-to-home, prodigal-son story will speak to readers who pushed their parents' boundaries and offer comfort to parents who fear their child is the only one acting out. Walsh and Smalley have written a story of romance, faith, and grace that is both enjoyable and powerful in its message. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
