The Prodigal

Each character has their own struggles but they all find common ground in the island they come to c The Prodigal, by Michael Hurley, is essentially a story of finding peace and refuge despite the challenges of life. Coincidence again, he meets Leah who is sitting by the road, and they are able to tell each other what has been going on in their lives. Overall, I would rate this book 4. This is the first fiction book of his I've read. Just drifting around drinking and with his law buddies. This historic-fantasy romance with humanizing evolution was my kind of fiction. The mystery surrounding the boat was beautiful and well developped.
