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. Set during the holiday season, The Reunion tells the story of Aaron Miller, an old, worn-out Vietnam vet, and 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.
Expert storyteller Dan Walsh pens a new tale filled with the things his fans have come to love–forgiveness, redemption, love, and that certain bittersweet quality that few authors ever truly master. Fans old and new will find themselves drawn into this latest story about how God cares for everyone.
Reviews & Endorsements:
“I just finished reading Dan Walsh’s new book THE REUNION. OHMYGOSH!! I have happy tears running down my face…I never expected the ending to this amazing heartfelt story. It was off the charts satisfying!…I highly recommend it…I LOVED reading this book. It touched me deeply!!” –Nora St. Laurent, CEO, The Book Club Network
THE REUNION, by Dan Walsh, has taken up residence on my Top Ten of 2012 List, but that’s not all. It sparked a new list. My Top Ten All Time Favorites, and it’s earned a spot there. Exquisitely drawn characters, a heartrending plot, and a deceptively simple delivery make THE REUNION one of the best books I’ve ever read. This book has to be made into a movie, and I’m delighted to say it’s been optioned. Novel Rocket and I give it our very highest recommendation. It’s a 5-star must read. — Ane Mulligan, Sr Editor, Novel Rocket Blog
4.5 Stars/Top Pick! “How can you find the words to thank someone for saving your life? Walsh addresses this in his latest — a tribute to military veterans for making the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Walsh is so gifted that the reader becomes a part of his stories. Vivid descriptions and touching, heartfelt scenes pave the way for a powerful tribute to Vietnam veterans.” — RT Book Reviews Magazine
“With a gift for pulling the heartstrings and encouraging a slow build of tears within his reader, Dan Walsh is quickly becoming one of my favorite go-to storytellers for sweet romance and intricately woven parallel storylines.” – USA Today (Serena Chase)
“Aaron Miller, a lonely Vietnam vet living in a trailer park, believes his best years are over…until fate sends redemption and love in ways he could not have imagined. Aaron’s story is one of many told in this book that had me weeping while simultaneously filling my heart with joy…The lessons of forgiveness and empathy are spellbinding–and not at all preachy.” —FIRST for Women Magazine
“THE REUNION is a moving story of loss and restoration, of faithfulness in things both significant and mundane, and of courage and doing the next right thing in the face of personal danger. Walsh’s sixth novel doesn’t disappoint, and will appeal to Nicholas Sparks fans. Fair warning: if this is the first Dan Walsh novel you read, you’ll most likely feel compelled to read the other five. Highly recommended.” — CBA Retailers & Resource Magazine
