The second book in author Clark Rich Burbidge's series, Giants in the Land, is a slam dunk. The Prodigals is one of those flashlight-under-the-covers kind of books you can't put down. The characters are tested and grow with each crisis they face and come to understand just what it means to become a giant. You are compelled to keep reading to find out who survives. I highly recommend this book as a family read-aloud and a springboard for some rich discussions.
