The Homecoming

I have never read a Christian romance novel written by a man. Can I just say that this man, Dan Walsh, knows how to write a great romance novel? From the very first page when you meet Katherine, Shawn, and Patrick, your heart aches for them. The story is full of action, TONS of Jesus, and love that is much needed and greatly received.

I also loved the history that was interwoven into this story as well. I am looking forward to reading more stories from this author.

About the Book:

What will his star-spangled homecoming have in store
for Shawn Collins and his young son?

It was here that readers first met the Collins family, as their world began to rip apart: Shawn Collins, a bomber pilot for the Army, has gone missing at the very same time his wife dies in a tragic car accident, leaving their seven-year-old son, Patrick, praying for a miracle to see his father again.

No sooner is Shawn 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 Patrick. When Shawn taps Katherine Townsend to be Patrick's nanny while he's on the road, he has no idea that she will be the key to his future happiness and the mending of his heart.

"One of the most delightful and touching love stories I've ever read. This heartwarming story of a little boy and his war-weary father left me with a lump in my throat and a smile on my face when I read the last page. Highly recommended!"--Colleen Coble, author, The Lightkeeper's Daughter and the Rock Harbor series
"Dan Walsh is a born storyteller . . . definitely a writer to watch."--Deborah Raney, author, Almost Forever and Beneath a Southern Sky
