Legacy Road by Graham Garrison is a book about forgiveness and grace, broken relationships and healing. It's a story of a father and son reunion that will tug at your heart strings and won't let you go for a good long while!
Legacy Road is the sequel to Mr. Garrison's Hero's Tribute and while both books can be read independently of each other, I would recommend reading both books to gain the full effect of the series. The story was heart warming but incredibly sad at times. I went through the whole gambit of emotions while reading this story.
This is not light reading but it is a book worthy of being added to your reading pile. The message of grace and forgiveness in Legacy Road can be life changing!
Here's a bit more information from the publisher:
Wes Watkins's journalism career took off when he was asked to eulogize Michael Gavin, a stranger to Wes but a hometown hero to the humble folks of Talking Creek, Georgia. While researching Gavin's life, Wes was confronted with an estranged relationship of his own that he wasn't prepared to address, having ignored for years the occasional letters from his imprisoned father.
Wes has chosen to focus instead on his growing career and his budding relationship with Emmy. His life is looking up . . . until his marriage proposal to Emmy goes south. Left to wonder if he can reconcile with Emmy before she is deployed to Afghanistan, Wes can no longer avoid the other reconciliation that troubles him. But when Wes uncovers a painful truth about his parents' past, patching things up with his father may prove impossible. Wes's life is close to spiraling out of control.
Will Wes learn to forgive? Or will the best year of his life turn into the worst?
