Chosen started the war. Destined continues the feud. The Mitchell brothers, pushed by their mothers, are poised to battle for ultimate control of their fatherâ€™s multimillion-dollar ministry in the captivating second novel from Patricia Haleyâ€™s provocative new series.
Inspired by the biblical kings David and Solomon, the drama picks up in the lobby of the familyâ€™s business. The oldest brother, Don, has returned from exile in South Africa at the pleading of his mother and former love interest because they can no longer idly watch baby boy, Joel, careen down the path of personal, professional and spiritual demise, as he drags the ministry with him.
