  • 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.
    My Review:
    I loved this book. It definitely touched my heart. The Reunion is about Aaron mostly but also about the investigative reporter that the men he saved hired to find him. Those men ended up doing well in life and want to find him to say Thank you. They have a reunion and want Aaron at this years. Aaron has not seen his children since they were little and his ex wife told him to leave them alone they had a new dad. His children did not know that so they grew up thinking he abandoned them and did not love them. Aaron hit really hard times after he came back from Vietnam including drugs and alcohol for years but then got his act straight. Even at his menial job at the trailer park he is liked and does a wonderful job proving he changed his life. The writing was good and the characters memorable. Highly Recommended.
