"This story conveys the importance of not giving up. Not giving up on faith, on a pursuit of purpose, on God's plan and presence, or on family and its strength. It takes the prodigal son returning to a new level."
"One faithful trait of Susan's stories is her message and tie in with the story of Christ's redemption. She beautifully illustrates through her characters' lives the sacrifice of Jesus, His relentless pursuit of mankind, and His ready forgiveness and love."
