A Powerful Secret (The Worthington Destiny, #2) by Kevin Leman, Jeff Nesbit

Sean Worthington is shocked when he hears his older brother Will announce that he will not run for New York's Senate seat. In fact, he's angry. All of his efforts as Will's campaign manager are now for nothing--and Sean is left to handle questions from the press while Will walks away without a backward glance. Throughout his life, Sean has felt like an outsider in his own family. And not being told about his brother's plans is just one more piece of evidence that he's right.

Tired of being the odd one out, Sean is determined to forge his own path. Little does he know that it's not easy to escape your family--especially when a powerful secret from the past threatens to explode everything Sean ever believed.

My Review

When I first read the back cover of this book, I immediately thought of the Kennedys our own American Royalty, and the tragedy that followed them. So I began turning the pages, and there are similarities, but this is a different family of Irish heritage.
You could feel Sean’s pain as he tried and tried and seemed to never succeed in winning his father’s approval. The family appears to be so very close, and the siblings are there for each other. When Will walks away from the Senate race, we soon see how strong the bonds this family has, even when they don’t know why all of this happened.
I loved how concerned for his fellow man Sam is and how he goes about seeing to the well being and setting companies up to help these world communities move forward to the future.
Will we ever find out who is stalking this family? Will Sam ever real his true feeling for a woman his friend appears to have feelings for?
The book is supposed to be a christian read, but there is a lot lacking as far as anything faith in this read, wish there would have been more.
The answers to most of yours questions are here and there is another book coming out this fall in this series, and I may give it another try.
I received this book through the Revell Reads Blogger Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
