Emotional and heartbreaking at times, The Reunion is the story of a Vietnam veteran and how he feels like he's nothing special. Due to some choices made in his earlier years, Aaron has not seen his kids in decades. As the maintenance man at a Florida trailer park, he pretty much keeps to himself but helps others and reaches out to them without ever realizing how much difference he truly makes.
Dave is a journalist on a mission to write a book on Vietnam war heroes when he finds himself commissioned by a veteran to find a recipient of the Medal of Honor. As he begins his search, he meets Karen, whose dad fought in Vietnam.
The way this story plays out is beautiful, and I hope you'll give it a try.
Dan Walsh did a fabulous job of weaving this somewhat complex story so beautifully. His characters feel like real people, with real emotions and real problems.
As I listened on Audible, Dick Hill was a great choice for this audio book. I'm always a little hesitant when a male reader records a book that has female characters, but he did an excellent job and I really enjoyed it.
I would classify this book as a southern meal. Maybe mashed potatoes, fried chicken, biscuits, and green beans. Something that reaches your soul.
I usually don't write reviews, but I had to express how wonderful this book was to read. It was such a moving story and a beautiful tribute to heroism. I highly recommend this book as a must read for anyone.
