The Prodigal Son
A Hero For Heather by Marion Ueckermann is a wonderful contemporary Christian romance. It is the third book in the Seven Suitors For Seven Sisters series but can be read as a stand-alone. A Hero For Heather is a modern day telling of the Prodigal Son blended with the Good Samaritan and I loved it.
A major theme in the novel is that of forgiveness. There are times when we need to forgive others and times when we need to accept forgiveness.
There is also the overwhelming sense of love over the whole novel. Love takes many forms – parental, sibling, friendship, romantic – love when mixed with kindness really is powerful. “Random acts of kindness can go a long way.” We love because “Christ’s love compels us.” Jesus issued the command to love one another and A Hero For Heather lives out that instruction.
