The Homecoming: A Novel | [Dan Walsh]

The Homecoming: A Novel

No sooner has Shawn Collins returned 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 his aging father, and grieve the loss of his wife in private. When Shawn asks Katherine Townsend to be Patrick’s nanny while he’s on the road, he has no idea how this decision will impact his life.

Publisher's Summary

A reluctant war hero returns home and encounters a new chance at love. No sooner has Shawn Collins returned 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 his aging father, and grieve the loss of his wife in private.

When Shawn asks Katherine Townsend to be Patrick’s nanny while he’s on the road, he has no idea how this decision will impact his life. Could it be the key to his future happiness and the mending of his heart? Or will the war once again threaten his chances for a new start? Dan Walsh does not disappoint in this tender story of family ties and the healing of a broken heart.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "WWII Story of Family and Faith"

    Ever questioned God? Ever wondered why? Me, too. So does Captain Shawn Collins, a WWII fighter pilot, just back from Europe, having narrowly escaped death. Just when he is thanking God for miraculously saving his life, he learns that his wife has died, leaving him and his young son, Patrick alone. Dan Walsh is a wonderful author. You won't find any Bible thumping in his books, just a gentle calming faith, one that sustains you throughout the horrifying trials of life. Follow along, listen to Shawn Collins story, and find hope . . .
