Heirs of Rebellion (Morrison Family Secrets #1) (Paperback)
After Joel Morrison lost his children in the 1952 Kern County earthquake, God blessed him with a successful business and five more children. Now those children are grown and on their own; however, Joel worries that the devourer has once again set his sights on them. For the most part, Joel's children are successful and prosperous, yet they remain unhappy. So, in an attempt to teach them a lesson in giving, Joel decides to radically alter his will. The decision is not met with widespread acceptance, but an unforeseen announcement from one of his daughters soon awakens the others to a new perspective. Dee Dee Morrison-Milner is a movie star and the "wild child" of the Morrison family. When her younger sister, Elaine, asks her to adopt an African orphan girl named Natua, Dee Dee agrees, but only because she believes adopting an underprivileged child may benefit her career. Soon, a psychopathic fan fixates on Dee Dee's new family, and the actor finds herself running from a stalker. When Natua is threatened, Dee Dee turns to her estranged husband, Drake Milner, in hopes of protecting the child whose kind nature stole her heart and helped her return to God.
