- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 7/1/2016
When I saw Dr. Leman's name on the cover of this book I expected the story to be about family relationships and more specifically birth order issues. I was right! When you add in author and political insider Jeff Nesbit this family drama also takes on a political suspense tone.
The Worthington family is full of complex relationships. Will and Sean Worthington, although brothers, couldn't be more different. In most instances their differences compliment each other but suddenly there is something that separates the two and causes strife. It's one of those things that has been an underlying element throughout their lives but due to circumstances that not everyone is aware of it comes to the forefront. No one that has known the details really speaks of it but the elephant is always in the room.
I didn't read the first book in the series, A Perfect Ambition, but I wish that I had. I would have enjoyed watching the complete story unfold. That book centered on firstborn son Will Worthington. A Powerful Secret is Sean's story. In the end I didn't feel like I missed any important details by only reading the second book but if you have the opportunity to read both I would highly recommend it. The third book, A Primary Decision, is youngest sister Sarah's story and it is due out this fall. I'll be eagerly snatching it up.
A Powerful Secret is the perfect read for anyone that enjoys an intense family drama. It's also the perfect book for those that love political intrigue. I enjoyed this book so much that I hope there are many more books to come from this duo.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
- Family by Maureen on 3/22/2016
When I first read the back cover of this book, I immediately thought of the Kennedys our own American Royalty, and the tragedy that followed them. So I began turning the pages, and there are similarities, but this is a different family of Irish heritage.
You could feel Sean’s pain as he tried and tried and seemed to never succeed in winning his father’s approval. The family appears to be so very close, and the siblings are there for each other. When Will walks away from the Senate race, we soon see how strong the bonds this family has, even when they don’t know why all of this happened.
I loved how concerned for his fellow man Sam is and how he goes about seeing to the well being and setting companies up to help these world communities move forward to the future.
Will we ever find out who is stalking this family? Will Sam ever real his true feeling for a woman his friend appears to have feelings for?
The book is supposed to be a christian read, but there is a lot lacking as far as anything faith in this read, wish there would have been more.
The answers to most of yours questions are here and there is another book coming out this fall in this series, and I may give it another try.
I received this book through the Revell Reads Blogger Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
