The Discovery - Review

The Discovery
By Dan Walsh

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 readers long after they turn the last page.

The Discovery tells the story of Michael Warner, whose grandfather, literary giant Gerard Warner, leaves him his Charleston estate. An aspiring writer himself, Michael settles in to write his own first novel and discovers an unpublished manuscript his grandfather had written, something he'd kept hidden from everyone but clearly intended Michael to find. Michael begins to read an exciting tale about Nazi spies and sabotage, but something about this story is different from all of Gerard Warner's other books. It's actually a love story.

As Michael delves deeper into the story he discovers something that has the power to change not only his future but his past as well.

Dan Walsh is the award-winning author of The Unfinished Gift, The Homecoming, The Deepest Waters and Remembering Christmas. He lives with his family in the Daytona Beach area, where he's busy researching and writing his next novel. Visit for more information.
Endorsements for Dan Walsh
“The Discovery is a masterful bit of storytelling. It is, above all else, a love story for the ages, one of sacrifice and devotion that will leave readers with a renewed passion for their loved ones.”
New York Journal of Books

“Walsh demonstrates that, like Nicholas Sparks, men are capable of writing romantic fiction.”
RT Book Reviews

Thrilling, romantic and intriguing. In The Discovery, Dan Walsh takes a fascinating sidebar of World War II history and crafts a suspenseful, beautifully written, and deeply satisfying story. This is his best novel yet!"
Sarah Sundin, award-winning author of the Wings of Glory series

"You don't often find a novel that appeals to men and women alike--but Walsh delivers one here! Taking you on a scavenger hunt leading to mystery, romance and intrigue, this book-within-a-book will tug at your heart and keep you in suspense. You'll get so caught up in the WW2 thriller you'll forget it's also a contemporary story. A feel-good read that commemorates the courage, integrity and sacrifice of the 'greatest generation.”

My Thoughts:

Have You ever read a book that is absolutely phenomenal but when you go to describe it to someone, you fail miserably? Well, for me, The Discovery is one of those books! I could tell you it's full of Suspense! I could share with you about Michael and his Grandfather, who was an author. He was one of the BEST Authors ever, and yet no one knew anything about his personal life AT ALL! I could tell you about the unpublished manuscript that Michaels Grandfather wrote and that Michael found it! Was it left specifically for Michael to find? Will it change Michaels life?

I could tell you what a fantastic job Dan Walsh did in sharing the history and story involving WWII, and how I would recommend this book EVEN IF you aren't a WWII fan. YES, IT'S THAT GOOD!!

I could tell you that you just might feel like you are a part of this story and just might find yourself reading the book all the way through, simply because it is IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT DOWN! It wouldn't be fair to share all of this with you and not tell about the beautiful Love Story and the sacrifices people make for those they love.

Yes, I could tell you all of these things...But Honestly, I feel the most important thing I can say to you is -

The Discovery is Phenomenal and one that is a MUST READ! HeartofaBookWorm gives The Discovery
