Book Review: The Discovery by Dan Walsh

Excerpt: I scanned the dates, none older than twenty years. I spent the next thirty minutes lifting and thumbing through the photo albums. I could have spent hours there, reliving the memories. But I had seen them all before. I didn't see a single picture of find a single document that shed any light on my grandfather or grandmother's existence prior to a few years after they married.

This had never bothered me before.

After putting everything back as carefully as I could, I closed the lid and stood up.

It bothered me now. The Discovery, pg 52.

Back Cover: An Engrossing Story of Family Secrets and a Love for the Ages

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 But within the confines of the stately home, he discovers an unpublished manuscript that his grandfather, a literary giant whose novels sold in the millions, had kept hidden from everyone--but which he clearly intended Michael to find. As he delves deep into the exciting tale about spies and sabotage, Michael 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 you long after you've turned the last page.

My Review: I loved this novel! Dan Walsh does an amazing job bringing two stories to life in this wonderful book. I love the way that Walsh wove the novel together. The characters and plot were so vivid and exciting. I couldn't put the book down, and when I had to, it would call me from across the room. Walsh takes an amazing tale of spies and sabotage, and brings it home. The novel caused me to think about some deeper issues, like is it ever okay to tell lies to protect ones identity? If you want to read a great book, look no further than The Discovery by Dan Walsh!
My Rating:

My Recommendation: I highly recommend this amazing book.
