No sooner is Shawn Collins home from the fighting in Europe than he is called upon to serve his country in another way--as a speaker on the war bond tour. While other men might jump at the chance to travel around the country with attractive Hollywood starlets, Shawn just wants to stay home with his son Patrick and the aging father with whom he has finally reconciled. When Shawn taps Katherine Townsend to be Patrick's nanny while he's on the road, he has no idea that she will be the key to his future happiness and the mending of his heart.

    dan walsh is one of my favorite, and current most, favorite author, because he writes from a redemptive standpoint, not from the common god set you up in a tragedy just in time to save your life. dan's stories are full of life and laced with true history, with emphasis on generational relationships and influence.

    This review was written for Homecoming, The: A Novel - eBook.
    "The Homecoming" is a Christian historical novel set in 1944 to 1945 and mainly occurred in United States and London, England. This book is a sequel to "The Unfinished Gift." You don't need to read the first novella to understand this book, but I suspect I would have felt more connected to the main characters if I had read "The Unfinished Gift" first.

    The vivid historical details were woven into the story without slowing the pacing. We get a tour of events happening at the time, from a bomber getting shot down and its crew escaping occupied territory, to fame for a war hero on a war bond tour, to missiles falling on civilian houses in London.

    There was a romance as well, but I felt like time jumped by so quickly that we didn't really get to see the romance grow. We know that they spent time around each other and that they seem well-suited for each other, but the novel's focus was more on the historical events going on than on scenes of them falling in love with each other.

    There was a Christian element to the story. Katherine knew so little about church that she thought she had to pay to attend (due to the offering plate), but we're told she learns more about how churches work and what Christ is all about. The hero believed in God before his wife died, but afterward he was mad at God and had to deal with the issue of God being good.

    There was no sex or explicit bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this interesting historical novel.

    World War II flying ace Shawn Collins returns home on leave to visit his wife's grave and to spend time with his young son, Patrick. But his country isn't ready to let him return to civilian life. Instead, they order him to report for a USO war bond tour up and down America's east coast, accompanied by Hollywood starlets. Shawn sees that his aging father isn't able to cope with Patrick for the duration of this tour, so he hired Patrick's beloved social worker, Katherine Townsend, to be the child's nanny.

    When the tour is over, Shawn is sent back to England to train pilots, and because the London bombings are over, he takes Patrick and Katherine with him. But it was only a lull in the storm.

    The Homecoming is a nostalgic, gentle love story set during the 1940s. If you enjoy reading about the war and are interested in a male author's version of a romance (think Nicholas Sparks) you may enjoy this novel. I picked it up when it was a Kindle freebie and read it while camping a couple of weeks ago. While definitely not riveting, I did enjoy it.

    I enjoyed this book. It was an easy quick read. I thought the story line was a bit slow at parts, but would pick up again.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Dan Walsh
Located in: Port Orange, FL
Submitted: March 29, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a member of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and the author of The Unfinished Gift. I also serve as a pastor in the Daytona Beach area, where I live with my wife and son. My daughter is married and lives in Fort Worth, TX.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The Homecoming is a sequel to my first novel, The Unfinished Gift. I didn't intend to write a sequel, but it became obvious after I finished the first book that the main characters had another important story to tell. While The Unfinished Gift was a story of forgiveness and reconciliation, the sequel is a love story.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope they will be thoroughly entertained and inspired. But there's a particularly encouraging Scriptural theme throughout the book, that God really does work all things together for good to those who love Him, including mending a heart that feels broken beyond repair.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I loved getting the chance to spend another year with the characters in The Unfinished Gift, whom I had come to love almost like family. It also gave me a chance to revisit some significant things God has taught me about His wisdom and goodness, even in the midst of heartbreaking loss.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  My third novel, The Deepest Waters, begins a new storyline. It's inspired by a true story that took place in 1857, when a newlywed couple is separated on their honeymoon voyage by a terrible shipwreck. It will also be published by Revell, due out in the spring of 2011.
