The Reunion by Dan Walsh* review and giveaway


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.

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 www.danwalshbooks.com

 Dan Walsh’s books get better and better, and The Reunion is just a magnificent story. The characters are so well defined and the scenery is so real it is almost as if you are there, but the best part of this book is the story. Dan is such an excellent story teller that you will simply read this book all the way through without stopping.
  Aaron is so caring and loveable, but he doesn’t see himself that way. So many things happened in his past and he would love for things to be different.
  The title of this book is so fantastic and describes the book completely, and I love the cover. The Reunion is such a touching, tender story that tells about how even when we are doing things right we really can struggle with how things are in our lives, but it also gives us hope.
  The Reunion is a book that I will put on my favorite books of 2012 and I know you will love it also. I highly recommend The Reunion as a keeper and a book you will love to reread again and again.
