The Discovery by Dan Walsh - REVIEWED

ABOUT THE BOOK: From the Publisher
When aspiring writer Michael Warner inherits his grandfather's venerable Charleston estate, he settles in to write his first novel. But within the confines of the stately home, he discovers an unpublished manuscript that his grandfather, a literary giant whose novels sold in the millions, had kept hidden from everyone--but
clearly intended Michael to find. As he delves deeper into the exciting tale about spies and sabotage, Michael realizes this story is different from all of his grandfather's other books. It's actually a love
story. And he discovers something that has the power to change not only his future but his past as well.

Laced with suspense and intrigue,
The Discovery is a richly woven novel that explores the incredible sacrifices that must be made to forge the love of a lifetime. Author Dan Walsh delivers yet another
unique and heartfelt story that will stick with readers long after they turn the last page. 

My Thoughts:
"Hello, Marilyn?  It's Michael.  I found something here at the house, and I've got an incredible story to tell you.  It's about Gramps."  ( p,342)

And boy, what a story Michael has to tell his sister!  Dan Walsh has a unique way of taking just a whisper of a story and turning it into a novel that will tug on your heartstrings!  The Discovery is no exception.  Fans of Walsh's work have much to enjoy in this novel!  Walsh takes the reader from a modern day scene in Charleston back into the WWII era.  The story that unfolds is one that sheds great light on the man the family tenderly called "Gramps."  Oh that such patriotism still existed today! What devotion of friendship and family!  God blessed "Gramps" abundantly with both wealth and a devoted family.  What he went through to have those blessings....

Well, you will have to read the story!  It's a heart-tugger to be sure!!
