The Homecoming by Dan Walsh – Review

1 Comment

The Homecoming by Dan Walsh is the sequel to The Unfinished Gift, a book I read last Christmas and LOVED.  I enjoyed The Homecoming just as much and was excited to ‘catch up’ with the characters I fell in love with in the first book.  Both are set during World War II and book two pretty much starts up where the first left off.

It was nice to see the fulfillment of the relationships between Patrick, his father, his grandfather and his social worker (who becomes his nanny), Katherine.  Again, as in the first book, the characters became real to me – they are real, three dimensional, and believable.  Dan Walsh is expert at transporting the reader to a time in history, setting us down in the midst of a family we feel privileged to know and be a part of.

The book is appropriate for adults and younger readers alike.  Both books are something that could be read aloud to your family and enjoyed by all.  I’ve become a fan of Dan Walsh and can’t wait for his next book!

  1. Virginie,

    So glad you enjoyed The Homecoming. I loved writing it. In a way, these characters feel like family to me. It’s like I have 2 tracks in my memory, my real family and the Collins.

    My next book is called The Deepest Waters, comes out April 1st. I’d be honored if you’d read it and review it then.

    Have a great week, Dan Walsh
