I think my problem with this book is that I thought the blurb was just being humble and that it really was a book of insight into bringing back or living without the prodigal. All I felt this book was conveying were various stories about and prayers for the prodigal. Nothing I could sink my teeth into and say, "I will try that." So although this book is chock full of prayers for the prodigal, there wasn't anything that would help my situation. I was disappointed.
If the above is just what you need to get through this time, then this book is perfect for you.
