Books read Sept 3

Prodigal Son by Danielle Steel
Have enjoyed many works by the author and know this will be another good read.
Starts out with typical life for parents and twin boys. Growing up Michael always wanted to be like his father, the doctor.
He marries Maggie and they have a son and daughter. Bill flees to England and starts researching his mothers symptoms...
She had fallen once and now her husband is in charge of all her medicines and Bill thinks she's being poisoned.
The other son is rather a disappointment to the family and over time he learns about his disability that effects everything he does. He marries and has two boys but with the crash of the stock market he's out of luck and money and houses and cars.
His wife Elena flees to LA to live with her father and the boys and he's offered to help Peter also but he needs to do things on his own.
Amazing tale of the two families over the years and how they are brought together and more disturbing events occur, will it bring them together or draw them further apart from one another.
Love the travel and learning new things.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
