Now, eight years later, Neal has come home to help his ailing father,Jennifer, a single mother, is also back trying to make a go of things. Neal and Jennifer were in love when they were teenagers, and those feelings haven't gone away. But they're different people,shaped by everything that's happened .They can't change the past. Can they still have a future?
When Jennifer Gardner returns home with her young daughter seven years after she left pregnant, she hopes to make a fresh start with her minister father. Unfortunately, the past keeps creeping up on her in the form of Neal Cain, her old love and the boy who went to prison after accidentally killing his best friend in a fight out of jealousy over her. The Prodigal's Return (3), by Anna DeStefano, is a pleasant read -- if just a bit predictable. The story is a good depiction of life in a small town.
