RETURN TO ME

Author(s): 

Hatcher never disappoints, and this book is no exception. Her unique twist on the prodigal son story (changed to prodigal daughter) focuses primarily on the "good" daughter, Elena, who stayed home while her sister left. Readers will identify with Elena and her frustrations, and the book's faith-building resolution will have them examining their own lives. Rarely do we see such a clear picture of God's grace as in this novel.

Slamming the door on her father and her sister, Roxy Burke took her inheritance and went to Nashville to make a name for herself in country music. Elena was left behind to deal with the family business and pick up the pieces with Roxy's boyfriend, Wyatt. Elena and Wyatt grew closer and are engaged. But Roxy has returned, after squandering everything she was given and more, and Elena is legitimately upset. How dare Roxy be welcomed home after what she has done? And where does this leave Elena?
