For years, Doug Anderson has been drifting slowly but steadily away from both his family and his faith. His parents have been trying to reach him before he falls too far. His friend Christina hopes what she is seeing online isn't true. But sometimes you have to hit bottom before you're ready to grow up.
Just as things begin to settle down a bit, Doug's life takes a turn that requires every bit of faith and patience for both his family and Christina--whose growing feelings for Doug, a man who writes her off as not worth his time, keep her off balance. Will Doug's crisis finally clear his vision and help him focus on what he has right in front of him?
The Legacy tells us about a young man named Doug Anderson. Having gone off to college, his parents, Jim and Marilyn Anderson, are concerned about him, as he seems to be drifting away not only from them, but from the Lord. Jim is trying very hard not to be controlling and overbearing, but is having a hard time giving his relationship with Doug over to the Lord. In the meantime, Doug is hanging out with the wrong crowd, going to parties, and sleeping with his girlfriend. Through a series of events, he comes to a point where he has to make a decision on where he stands with the Lord and his family – will he choose them, or the lusts of the flesh?
This book was pretty good, although I had a bit of a hard time following it at first as it is book four in the series and I haven't read the other books. I did enjoy it, though, as well as the sub stories. It dealt with real like problems that Christian families have to deal with now days, which is good.
