This is the fourth and final book in the Restoration series. One doe not need to read the first three to enjoy this story. I have not read any of the first three but still enjoyed this one. This is kind of a prodigal son story but still well done. I liked Doug and his family but was not too fond of his friends that partied all the time. I look forward to reading the other books in this series to learn more about this family. I received this book from Revell Reads for a fair and honest opinion.
