[ THE PRODIGAL ] BY Hurley, Michael ( AUTHOR )May-28-2013 ( Paperback ) - Michael Hurley

One of the best books I have read in a long while from page one the reader is totally engrossed. The author creates an air of mystery.

The story revolves around the little town of Ocracoke Island where lawyer Aidan Sharpe is trying to rebuild his life when he meets the local priest father Marcus.

The reason why I loved this book was that each of the main characters had or were keeping a secret and had to learn to trust love and bind together in order for them all to reach / attain their destiny.

As he arrives on the island feeling uneasy he is put to work with Ibrahim to work on the boats which fulfills him but is shocked when he is asked to leave.

Then out of nowhere a mystery boat appears and has history back to 1851. He takes on the task to restore her and race her in a multi million pound race.

The heartache and emotions you feel as you follow Aidan's journey is unbelievable, the friendship he has to make, the trust he receives from Father Marcus and trying to find love is amazing.

The gem of this book is the authors history of the mystery ship which appears and the secrets and powers it holds.

During reading this book you will question your own lifestyle and what is really important is it money, friendship or just to be happy.  Hidden in this book is a message telling you that situations change in your life for a specific reason.

Writers rarely come along who can get you hooked on their style of wring and knowledge of personal  feelings, which this novelist does and I cannot wait to read more of his work.
