A Great Story of Restoration -- The Reunion

Some writers have a way of grabbing your attention and drawing you into their story from the very beginning . . . and then keeping your full attention to the very end.  Dan Walsh is a master at that and has done it once again in The Reunion. 

To say Aaron Miller has lived a hard life is an understatement.  After coming home from Vietnam he lost his family and spent years living homeless on the streets.  Now he lives alone in an old storage building, working quietly as a handyman in a non-descript trailer park, making just enough money to get by.  He quietly lives out the faith he found in recent years, caring for people, befriending them, and even saving lives -- all the while never thinking of himself as a hero.

But there is much more to Aaron than people around him know.  And unbeknownst to him, someone who does know his past is looking for him.  Once he is found, Aaron's life is about to change in ways he never could have imagined.

As in his other books, Walsh goes to the depths of the human heart and feelings.  This is a story of second (or more) chances at life, of restoration of love and relationships.  And thanks to Dan's masterful storytelling, I turned the last page glad to have met the characters and shared some important days of their lives.

This is the third book I've read by Walsh (I hope there are many more), and they have all been winners. I would highly recommend his work to anyone who enjoys a good story with messages of hope and faith.

Dan Walsh is the award-winning author of The Unfinished Gift, The Homecoming, and The Deepest Waters. A member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Dan served as a pastor for 25 years. He lives with his family in the Daytona Beach area, where he's busy researching and writing his next novel.

Available September 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

(This book was provided free from the publisher for my honest review.)
