Prodigal Mum

Catherine Wyle


In A Prodigal Mum, Major Catherine Wyles, a mother of four sons, shares her own experience of a child leaving the faith and examines her personal response. This book interweaves Catherine’s own story with an imaginative interpretation of Jesus’ parable of the prodigal son. In a creative and original twist, she views the story from a new perspective – that of the mother.

A challenging read that raises deep-seated questions but also offers real comfort to those with concerns for loved ones. The book includes questions, reflections and discussion points that can be used by individuals or small groups
