In a matter of days, Peter McDowell loses everything he has worked so hard for-his wealth, his property, his livelihood as a star investment banker. And then it gets worse. The stock market crash not only plunges Peter into joblessness, it causes a rift in his marriage that he cannot repair. Stripped of everything, he has only one place to retreat: a lakeside cottage he inherited from his parents, who left most of their modest estate to Peter's twin. With no other choice, the prodigal son goes home. A beloved small-town doctor, a devoted family man, and a pillar of his community, Michael McDowell serves others without regard to personal gain. Only Peter knows how Michael manipulated their parents when the boys were young, ultimately driving Peter away. At first, he dreads seeing Michael again. But, to his surprise, their reunion is tender and real. Only later, as Peter mulls over his late mother's journals, does the truth begin to emerge, as realization and panic begin to set in. Who is his twin? Is the facade real, or does something terrifying lie beneath? Imagination or a reality too terrifying to believe? In a race for time, Peter throws caution to the winds to find the truth. What he discovers will change their lives forever, the lives of their children, and an entire town. Powerful, poignant, and filled with complex and layered characters, Prodigal Son is a riveting novel of secrets, salvation, and redemption from master storyteller Danielle Steel.



  • I felt sorry for Dylan prior to his breaking point. At first, all he desired was what he lacked - a father's love and attention. Curtis should have made an effort to involve him more; money can't buy a genuine relationship. In the end, Dylan got what was coming to him. Instead of scheming, he could have simply communicated his feelings to his father. As for Charlotte, I can't overlook her hypocrisy and sneaky behavior, to be honest. I absolutely adore the series. I listen to it while driving, working, cooking, and so on. Mrs. Roby, you did an outstanding job!
  • My goodness, another one of Danielle Steele on Audiobooks. Just loved it and feel so blest that this book in audio is heaven- sent as I had surgery in one eye and cannot strain my other good eye reading. I just am impressed on the presentation and the narrator Mel aFoster.
