The Legacy ~ Review


Doug Anderson has been drifting slowly but steadily away from both his family and his faith. His parents, along with Christina, a young woman taken into the family during a crisis pregnancy, have been trying to reach him before he falls too far. But sometimes you have to hit bottom before you're ready to grow up and give your life over to God. Christina's feelings for Doug have been growing, even though he writes her off as not worth his time. Will Doug's own crisis finally clear his vision and help him focus on what he has right in front of him?


This is the final book of the Restoration Series by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley! I ALWAYS read books by these authors and this one is one of my favorites to date.  The Legacy can be read as a stand alone, however, I would really recommend reading the other books in the series in order and then read this one. This book is about the youngest son, Doug, and there is a lot of connection between the family that would be better appreciated having read them all in order.

Doug has gone off to college leaving many things behind, sadly, he also left behind his Faith in the Lord.  He's started hanging around a crowd that parties a lot and has also met someone. Back at home his friendship with Christina has become so strained and just keeps growing further & further apart. Christina is the one who is seeing things on social media that alerts her to Kyle's behavior. 

Will Christina open up to Doug's parents? Will Doug continue on the same path, spiraling out of control or will his crisis teach him to see what's right in front of him? 

The Legacy is my favorite of the Restoration Series and just like any and all books from these authors, you feel like you've known the people in the story forever. I immediately was engrossed in Doug's story and recommend this book to all! 

Thanks to Revell for allowing me this complimentary book in exchange for my honest review!
