The Reunion...Review

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.

Like many Vietnam Veterans, Aaron Miller had suffered hardship and loss after returning home from a war that many felt was unnecessary.  After losing his faith, his family and his dignity,  Aaron pulls himself up from rock bottom to live a quiet, unassuming life in a small trailer park in Florida. Rarely thinking of himself, and never thinking about his Medal of Honor, Aaron nevertheless touches many lives in his quiet, giving way.  When Dave Russo, a reporter looking to interview Vietnam heroes, shows up at Aaron's home one day, Aaron wants to send him on his way.  But when Dave reveals who sent him on the search to find him, Aaron reconsiders and finds himself reunited with friends and family and his life changed in ways he never dreamed possible.

Dan Walsh has an extraordinary ability to capture the human spirit.  In this thought-provoking, tender story, he has also penned a beautiful tribute to those veterans who are overlooked and forgotten.  Aaron's story will tug at your heartstrings and have you cheering for the underdog well before the book ends.

While The Discovery is my favorite Dan Walsh book, The Reunion comes in a close second.

Available September 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Thanks to Donna Hausler of Baker Publishing for the opportunity to review this book.  You can learn more about Dan Walsh here.  You can purchase your own copy here.
