Reunion ~ Review & a giveaway by Dan Walsh

About the Book:

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. 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.

About the Author:

A member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Dan served as a pastor for 25 years. He lives with his wife in the Daytona Beach area, where he's busy researching and writing his next novel.

My Thoughts:

I love Dan Walsh books and for me, they just get better and better. Reunion is a beautiful story of Aaron Miller, a Vietnam vet. In today's world, I have been in many different situations in which a Military Serviceman will appear and people all around him will immediately begin thanking him, or the crowd begins clapping for him and all he and his fellow service men & women have done fighting for our Freedom. I know it wasn't always this way and that is just heartbreaking.

Reunion shares just how awful the Vietnam Vets were treated and after having been in that war, some came home to learn they had nothing to return to. Aaron Miller lost his marriage, his dignity, and his children were led to believe he wanted nothing to do with them. Aaron went from being an honored military man to working as a handyman in a trailer park.

His journey is one that will, at times, bring some major tears! It is a Beautiful love story ~ not exactly the way we "expect" love stories to be, but OH SO MUCH BETTER!
Gods unbelievable Love comes through in the most precious of ways!

Reunion is one of those books that I soooo did not want to end and is easily on my favorites list!
A definite 5 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥'s !
