About the book

It's time for Will to forge his own path.
But the force that drives him to greatness could also destroy him--and his family.

As the firstborn son of an old and powerful family, William Jennings Worthington VI knows what it's like to be under pressure. Groomed from birth with the relentless message that he was destined for greatness, Will has always pushed himself to succeed--nearly as much as his never-satisfied financial tycoon father pushes him. Becoming CEO of the world's largest and most adventuresome oil company seems the next logical step on the success ladder. But when circumstances turn, Will finds himself staring down a road that leads to Capitol Hill. Can he trade the board room for the Senate floor? Or will family secrets keep him from his destiny?

My Thoughts

I will admit that when I saw that Dr. Leman was a co-author of this new novel I immediately jumped on the opportunity to review the book.   I love Dr. Leman’s book and I was curious as to why he has embarked in a journey to write novels. 

This book is the first of a series  called The Worthington Destiny.   From the first pages, you get to discover the characters and their relationships.   You are slowly drawn into the mystery of this novel with some reactions from the mother of the Worthington siblings as well as an unknown character that quickly enters the pages of the story.    

I realized quickly why Dr. Leman is involved in this book.   Each of the siblings exhibit certain characteristics of the birth order theory that he has demonstrated in his book titled The Birth Order Book.  And at the end of the book, you can read a quick overview of each birth order place.   Each of the characters will have to deal differently with the events that happens in the book.   Each have their own ambitions but at the same time they respect and love their siblings.

Reading this novel, I can’t help but to be immerse in the lives of the characters and the events surrounding them.   I am left wanting to know more about their lives.   But unfortunately I will have to wait until spring 2016 to discover the next part of the story.

If you are looking for a great read this summer, I strongly recommend A Perfect Ambition
