The Discovery by Dan Walsh * A Review

An Engrossing Story of Family Secrets and a Love for the Ages

When aspiring writer Michael Warner inherits his grandfather's venerable Charleston estate, he settles in to write his first novel. But within the confines of the stately home, he discovers an unpublished manuscript that his grandfather, a literary giant whose novels sold in the millions, had kept hidden from everyone--but which he clearly intended Michael to find. As he delves deep into the exciting tale about spies and sabotage, Michael discovers something that has the power to change not only his future but his past as well.

Laced with suspense and intrigue, The Discovery is a richly woven novel that explores the incredible sacrifices that must be made to forge the love of a lifetime. Author Dan Walsh delivers yet another unique and heartfelt story that will stick with you long after you've turned the last page.

I was born in Philadelphia in 1957 (guys don't care if you know) to a mostly
blue-collar, hard-working Irish family. My Dad was the first person on either side of the family to earn a college degree. It took him nine years, working during the day, going to college at night, using the GI Bill from his war days in Korea. In the mid-sixties, General Electric hired him as an engineer for the Apollo space program. We packed up and moved to Florida, which is really where I grew up.
I spent my childhood years playing basketball and surfing. In the spring of my senior year in high school I met the woman who would become my wife, Cindi. We dated for a brief period. I asked her to marry me and, to my great surprise, she said yes. We were married near the end of 1976. We have two children, now grown.
The desire to write novels first began in high school. But I didn't have the time to pursue this passion until 2007. To find out more, visit my website at

  The Discovery is such a superb beautifully written love story, not only of a man and woman, but love a man had for his family. I love how this book was written. With one book inside of another. How there is such love in each story.
  Each of Dan Walsh’s books get better and better.  I have enjoyed each and every one of them.
I usually don’t like books that talk about war, but this one was really different and full of action and suspense. It tells of a time when things were different and how life can work out if we just trust the Lord and do the right thing.
   You get drawn into this book and it seems like it is really happening.  Like The Discovery is a true story and you believe everything you read has really occurred.
The scene descriptions were brilliant and so very dramatic. You will be taken back to a different time and place in one story, but you will also enjoy what is happening in the present day.
  I really enjoyed The Discovery very much and look forward to any and all of Dan Walsh’s books. I highly  recommend The Discovery for a book you will want to read again and again.
