The Reunion by Dan Walsh

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.

My thoughts...

This is the second book I've read by Dan Walsh and I intend to read each one he's written. The Reunion is such an wonderfully heartfelt story, I couldn't stop reading and finished in one day.

I felt pride in getting to know Aaron Miller, sadness at how his life turned out after serving in the Vietnam war and receiving the Congressional Medal of Honor. How he had lost his family due to turning to alcohol and drugs after being wounded...and now he was living in a tool shed working as a handyman in a trailer park. Still saving lives as he gets to know the tenants.

Walsh has amazing talent, he's able to draw you in from the first paragraph, allowing you to get to know the characters deeply and wrapping it all up in such a way you feel better from having read the book. I cried tears of joy as Aaron finally gets the recognition and the kind of life he deserves. Definitely one of my favorite books! 5 out of 5 stars!
