    OK Read

    The Prodigal Husband is about Tori and Jake and what happens when their 15-month-old daughter is killed in a car wreck. Jake runs away and disappears for a year, thinking it's all his fault. The reader finds out that it is partially both their fault and then not their fault at all. Let me explain, as an inspirational (Christian) fiction book, the main focus is that everything is in God's control and that we should be forgiving of others as indicated by the title. In the parable told by Jesus in the Bible, the prodigal son asked for his inheritance early, went out and spent it up partying and such until he was destitute. Poor and ashamed, the son returns home hoping that his father will at least give him a job. However, when the father sees the son, he welcomes him with open arms and holds a celebration, giving the son back his status in the family.
    Well, Tori doesn't exactly welcome Jake back with open arms. In the first place, Tori found Jake in bed with his business partner Sheila. So Tori takes her daughter and goes to her mother's house. Jake goes there and demands they come home. When Tori refuses, Jake takes his little girl and leaves. Shortly after, they are in a car wreck where the girl dies. Jake blames himself and leaves and doesn't contact anyone except Sheila for a whole year. When Tori has just about given up on Jake returning, cuts her hair, gets a new wardrobe and plans to go file for divorce, here comes Jake. As Tori and Jake try to mend their marriage, many things surface to try to keep them apart, namely Sheila who is "in love" with Jake.
    I talked back to this book the entire time I was reading it. Some of the stuff going on was just not plausible. All I have to say is that these are some real Christians in this book because some of the dirt that Sheila was doing should've got her at least a slap across the face. But no, there is no slapping, just strong words. And if Jake was not as thick as a tree trunk, I don't know who is. He could not be persuaded that Sheila had any ulterior motives and that she was just a good friend. I would have left Jake's dense and possessive @$$. Sheila was not a real villain either. She was more like comic relief. Her poorly thought out ploys to break up Jake and Tori were pathetic. The subplot between Tori's cousin Charlene and Jake's brother Shepherd was just foolish. The author built up a conflict between Charlene and Shepherd which ended up falling flat for me.
    The writing was ok, not very involving because I kept coming out of the story to yell at the characters. Also, it was filled with African-American history of the Carolinas that seemed forced and out of place.
    The author started out with some good drama but didn't follow through. I haven't read much Inspirational fiction, but this didn't have much in the way of conflict. The characters obviously loved each other and it was just a matter of time for them to get back together. I mainly forced my why through it to see how they did it.

    Excellent Book

    I read this book in two days. It was excellent and kept you wanting to know what Shelia would do next. I can't wait to read Defining Moments (part 2).

    Phenomenal!

    It's very hard to find a good book with God being mentioned throughout the book. This is just a sure sign of how God test your faith in him through marriage. The book brings about a real life experience that alot of people can relate to. If you trust in him he will bring you through all obstacles that may come, even cheating. God is using Jacquelin Thomas (author) to bring about his word and restore peoples faith in him.

    A GREAT CLEAN WORK OF ROMANCE, LOVE, AND LUST

    I really enjoyed the book and read it in one day. I really could not put it down. I'm an avid reader, and have read books of many genres and plots. But this book was straight to the point and a must read for anyone, in a marriage, a broken relationship, or has been betrayed, and believes in the power of forgiveness and true love. It really conquers all.

    Brilliant

    Really good book, has a little romance to it and the story is written very well. I had a few pages left and could not go to sleep so I had the flashlight in the bed reading the last few pages. Definately recomend this one.

    This book is a keeper.

    I really enjoyed this book. Tori has a lot of courage and strength and I think we all can learn from her. Also it is a wonderful guide for someone going through marital problems because it shows how they can find their way through God's help.

    I Really Enjoyed This Book

    I always was hoping there'd be one Christian author who'd come on the scene and be able to write good fiction books that had christian characters facing the normal situations we all face in our daily lives (i.e. heartache, betrayal, tragedy, love lost, bitterness, etc). Real issues. We are not exempt from having issues as long as we live in this world. Ms. Thomas was able to do this and tie God into it as the major source of the character's help and strength. A co-worker of mine lent me this read and I really enjoyed it. It proved that marriage is what you make it and that love can last if you have the love of God inside of you and are willing to commit to the vows you've made before Him. I plan on reading more from this author.

    It was ok!

    The book started off really well. The husband in this book was very stupid and the wife was very smart. I really enjoyed the first ten chapters and after that you know what was going to happen so I stop reading it. But over all it was a well written book.

    Must read

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I read it over a year ago. It came right at a time when I was dealing with my own prodigal husband. I have some of your other novels as well and I look forward to reading them also

    A Must Read!!!!!!!

    Once I began to read this book I could not put it down. It's characters where great and I could feel their joy, pain, sorrow, and victory. It was refreshing to read a christian novel where you could see the hand of God move and faith take flight. I'm lookign forward to reading more books by Jacquelin Thomas. She is a God send!

    Great read

    This was a very good book. Real life issues in black and white. Shared this with four other girlfriends. Trust in the Lord, He'll bring 'em back home.

    Renewed Strength in Love

    This book was so magnificent. It was worthy of so many more stars. I loved it from beginning to end. The power of the fate that she has in God, her love, this book is a definition of what a marriage should be. Anyone looking to feel refreshed should read this book. Steps of a good man are pledged through God; Jake learned that lesson eventually.

    Unconditional Faith

    Jake and Tori Madison have a wonderful marriage until Jake is caught in bed with his business partner, Sheila. Sheila, who has always been in love with Jake, planned to seduced Jake and have Tori catch them in the act. Devastated, Tori packs up their daughter and they move into her mother's house. Jake is determined to fix things in their marriage, but when their daughter is fatally injured in a tragic accident he is unable to handle the guilt. Jake runs away, fleeing the country. The only person who knows his whereabouts is Sheila. Jake keeps abreast of the happenings of his business and family through her. Since Sheila is determined to make Jake hers, she won't let Tori or anyone else know what is going on with him. During his absence, Tori makes major changes within herself and although she still loves Jake, she knows she must move on. After a year of isolation, Jake feels it is time to return home to seek forgiveness. When Jake surprises everyone with his return, Tori has to do some soul searching to see if she can ever forgive Jake and learn to trust him again. Their reconciliation is filled with obstacles that make them both take a second look at themselves and their marriage. The Prodigal Husband, at its core, is a novel about forgiveness and redemption. Although readers may not agree with the character's choices, it will give everyone who picks it up food for thought about their own lives and the impact of their actions on others. The Prodigal Husband is a very good book. With Jacquelin Thomas' romance background, you can feel the romantic undertones in this book. I am looking forward to reading more from her in the Christian Fiction genre. Tina R.E.A.L. Reviewers

    A great way to get back to reading again

    This was a great book. As you read you get so involved in the story you want to just slap the husband. It's a good thing I kept reminding myself this is just a book (or is it?) You will love this book I shared it with my sister and two of my girl friends, they loved it.

    One to read

    This is definitely one to read. This book had me from page one. I really related to each character and emphathized with them. The development of the book and the subplots were great. This is definitely one I will read again and again. It was really refreshing to find that through all the hurts and pains, God is still in control. Love can conquer all.

    AWESOME BOOK

    I read 1/2 of this book on a flight to Chicago and the other half once I checked into my room. It was my life. There are some cruel women in the world today. I wished I had read this book before I gave my husband up to the other woman. Great book!!!
