The Prodigal Sons

In The Prodigal Sons, three generations of Koopmans live—uneasily—under the same roof of a farm house twenty miles from the center of Holy Cross, Iowa.

The Prodigal SonsThirty-year-old William Koopman needs to move out. But Dad wanted him on the farm after Grandpa died, so William stayed, married his girl Marcy, and even brought her to the farmhouse to live. The poor girl made it a year before she bolted at the end of a rough winter.

A week after Marcy leaves, William’s shiftless younger brother John returns home. The prodigal son with no money in his wallet, but lots of ideas to make it all back in Holy Cross.

If they all survive this rainy growing season on the farm, it will truly be a miracle.
