Book Review of "The Homecoming"

The Homecoming
By Dan Walsh

This was an outstanding story of a reluctant war hero who returns home, encountering heartbreak along his long path. You immediately identify with Shawn, who is excited about returning to his small son, although that too, involves some bitter sweet feelings. Shawn is a good Christian who has "done everything right"- for God, his country, his family, but still he is presented with challenges that you feel along with him. You  empathize with him and  feel his pain. This book enthralled me from start to finish.
All at home is not well, yet Shawn is called back to  serve his country, which he does with mixed feelings- you feel the struggle along with him.  He now requires a nanny to mind his son while he is away, even though he would prefer to be the caregiver. While he is on the road, Shawn has to make an important decision, but he has no idea of the impact it will have on his life.It could be the key to happiness and the mending of his heart or war could once again threaten his chance at a new start..
This book is a fine example of tender family feelings and the mending of a broken heart.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
