Get ready to cry: My review of "The Reunion" by Dan Walsh @DanWalshAuthor @GrafMartin

The Reunion: A Novel

about the book...

Everything lost can be found.

Aaron Miller knows a thing or two about loss. He's lost love. Dignity. Second, and even third, chances. Once honored for his heroism, he now lives in near obscurity, working as a handyman in a humble trailer park.

But God is a master at finding and redeeming the lost things of life. Unbeknownst to Aaron, someone is searching for him.

With deep insight into the human heart, consummate storyteller Dan Walsh gently weaves a tale of a life spent in the shadows but meant for the light. Through tense scenes of war and tender moments of romance, The Reunion will make you believe that everyone can get a second chance at life and love.

my review....

You know that feeling when you get to the end of a book and your eyes kind of hurt because you've been crying so much? If not, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about when you finish this book! "The Reunion" is a masterpiece, with incredible characterization and a deeply moving story of selflessness, sacrifice, and new beginnings. I was completely swept up into Aaron's world, quickly coming to admire the man who made so many mistakes and yet who lived a life that made a profound impact upon the world. I found myself wishing that I could have just a small measure of the impact Aaron had! Walsh has written a story filled with grace, celebrating the power of faith in God to utterly change lives. The book ends beautifully, and during the last few chapters, I felt like I was given a glimpse of what heaven will be like one day. Any book that can achieve that is worth reading over and over again!

It was with a tremendous feeling of satisfaction that I closed the pages of "The Reunion", and I hated to see the story come to an end. I cannot recommend this book higher, and award it 5 out of 5 stars.
