About the Book:
A reluctant war hero returns home and encounters a new chance at love.
No sooner has Shawn Collins returned home from the fighting in Europe than he is called upon to serve his country in another way–as a speaker on the war bond tour. While other men might jump at the chance to travel around the country with attractive Hollywood starlets, Shawn just wants to stay home with his son Patrick and his aging father, and grieve the loss of his wife in private. When Shawn asks Katherine Townsend to be Patrick’s nanny while he’s on the road, he has no idea how this decision will impact his life. Could it be the key to his future happiness and the mending of his heart? Or will the war once again threaten his chances for a new start?
Dan Walsh does not disappoint in this tender story of family ties and the healing of a broken heart.
About the Author:
Dan Walsh is the author of The Unfinished Gift and a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. He is a pastor and lives with his family in the Daytona Beach area, where he’s busy researching and writing his next novel.
The first book I read by Dan Walsh was at Christmas, when I read The Unfinished Gift, a touching, emotional story. So, when the opportunity arose to review the second book, The Homecoming, I jumped on it! I was emotional through out this inspirational book, too!
Shawn, Katherine and Patrick are back in this amazingly written sequel. The ups and downs of the emotional rollercoaster leaves you utterly breathless. While The Unfinished Gift was more of a story about forgiveness and heartache, this one is more romantic, faith finding and overcoming the past. From the beginning you start to feel every kind of emotion possible….heartache, sadness, love, forgiveness, happiness and so much more. Being a daughter of a Naval Senior Chief Petty Officer, this wartime story really tugged at me. I love an amazing story with soldiers and heroes in them!
So, please don’t think twice about getting this book. It can easily be read as a stand alone, though The Unfinished Gift is worth reading too! Dan Walsh is an excellent author who’s book gets 5 star praises from me! It’s an emotional inspiring story and I recommend this book to everyone! Just make sure you have lots of tissues handy!
