Heirs of Rebellion Review

Title:  Heirs of Rebellion (Family Secrets Book 1)
Author:  Vanessa Miller
Pages:  180
Year:  2013
Publisher:  Whitaker House
The novel, while short in length, is powerful in terms of the themes it brings forth in the mind of readers.  First, there is the theme of what legacy we leave behind for our children.  Second, being honest with where one’s relationship is or isn’t with the Lord.  Third, being a person of prayer believing God doesn’t just hear, but answers.  Finally, reading God’s Word regardless of our life happenings.  Whether the situations are good or difficult isn’t the standard by which people determine the need for His Word.
In the pages, we begin to learn about a widower with five grown children.  He has loved the Lord, thanked God for His blessings and prayed for his children.  He has reached a place where Joel believes he must reconsider how he has written his will, dispersing his assets.  Now begins the real heart of the book as to how his children will react and respond to his idea as well as the reason.
For me, this was an enjoyable novel to read, and I can recommend it highly to others.  I believe it really engages the heart of the reader as well as the mind.  The characters depicted and their life situations are something we can relate to in one fashion or another.  I am hoping that the author continues to write more novels about this family really developing the plot more as well as bringing in secondary or background characters.  As a reader, I want to know how a certain discovery or situation comes to a resolution in more detail with more description.  Other than that it is a quick read and full of encouragement and hope.
My rating is 4 stars.
