Restoration, Book 3 in the Lakeville Series
Two Brothers, two paths.
“I know what’s going on. What are you going to do to make it right?”
Jude barked out a laugh…he was prepared for every argument. His stance declared he would have none of what Silas had to say.
“Who says we’re not right?”
Praying for the right words to be spoken and a fertile heart to hear them, Silas reached for his brother, plunging into the discussion he knew they needed to have. “Jude, you know the right thing. I don’t need to spout off a list of Scripture. What can I do?”
“Mind your business.” Jude shook off the hand on his arm. “That’s the first thing. No, that’s the ONLY thing.”
“My brother walking in sin isn’t my business?”
Silas adopted a stubborn set to his face. The fabric of their relationship, worn to tatters from recent strains, tore apart.
The impasse reached could destroy their close bond.
