There are some books that you just can’t put down till the last page. The Reunion, A Novel is the first book in quite a while that has brought tears to my eyes, but not because it was sad. It was just that good.
Aaron Miller is one of those very humble heroes that doesn’t feel he deserves anything good. He may have won a Medal of Honor when he was young, but now he lives a quiet life, full of regrets for other choices he made in his life. In our world, there are many people living a quiet, unassuming life who have a history. Maybe they used to be something special or did something amazing back in their youth. But now they are just living day to day – quietly keeping their amazing history hidden.
Dan Walsh is able to accomplish something in this book The Discovery, that many authors fail miserably at. He is able to weave in different story lines and not lose the reader. Many times it’s hard to follow a story line when authors jump around from one time period to another. But not here.
Elements in the Story
This book has all the elements needed to make a book stand out: Heroism, Love, Loyalty, Regret, a touch of romance, reconciliation, family…. This book is definitely in the top 10 books I’ve had the pleasure of reading and reviewing this year.
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.
