While this is a sequel to The Unfinished Gift, it could easily be a stand-alone novel. The emotionally compelling storyline and well-crafted characters will appeal to all. Walsh demonstrates that, like Nicholas Sparks, men are capable of writing romantic fiction.
Returning from the war in Europe, Shawn Collins only wants to stay home with his son Patrick and his father, with whom he has recently reconciled. However, the military has other plans for Shawn — to be part of a tour promoting the sale of war bonds.
Still reeling from his wife’s death, Shawn is reluctant to open up his heart, but when he hires Katherine Townsend to care for Patrick, his life is about to change. (REVELL, Jun., 320 pp., $14.99)
