The Reunion: A Book Review

About The Book:

There are people in this world we pass right by without giving a second thought. They are almost invisible. Yet some of them have amazing stories to tell, if we’d only take the time to listen. Aaron Miller was an old, worn-out Vietnam vet, a handyman in a trailer park. Forty years prior, he saved the lives of three young men in the field only to come home from the war and lose everything. But God is a master at finding and redeeming the lost things of life. Aaron is about to be found. And the one who finds him just might find the love of his life as well.
Expert storyteller Dan Walsh pens a new tale filled with the things his fans have come to love–forgiveness, redemption, love, and that certain bittersweet quality that few authors ever truly master. Fans old and new will find themselves drawn into this latest story about how God cares for everyone.
About The Author:
Dan Walsh is the award-winning author of several books, including The Unfinished Gift, The Deepest Waters, and The Discovery. A member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Dan served as a pastor for 25 years. He lives with his wife in the Daytona Beach area, where he's busy researching and writing his next novel.

My Review:
I was introduced to the work of Dan Walsh in 2009 and have since had the opportunity to read and review each of his books. With each read I have become even more impressed with his work. 
When the opportunity to review his most recent release, The Reunion, I knew it would be a great read. I was not disappointed at all.
The Reunion covers a number of topics like PTSD, life after war, domestic abuse, as well as the importance of family, forgiveness and letting go of the past to ensure a positive future. 
With each page written, Walsh draws you into the world of Aaron Miller. He was by far my favorite character, but each of the other characters brought something special to this book for sure. The book is very well-written, and Walsh has amazing storytelling skills, and is very reminiscent of Nicholas Sparks (I have said this before and stand by it!). Another great read from Dan Walsh, and I cannot wait for April 2013 when Walsh releases his new series (co-authored with Gary Smalley!).
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
BUY IT: You can purchase The Reunion online here, through Amazon.
