My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The Homecoming is the wonderful sequel to the book The Unfinished Gift. Dan Walsh picks up where the first book left off and continues to delight readers with a story that expertly weaves together the harsh reality of war with the tender love of a family.

I enjoyed this book even more than the first one as details are revealed and characters deepened. The balance between the action of war and a budding romance is perfect and well suited for listening to the audio format as a family.

The story takes a few predictable turns but holds enough suspense to keep you turning the page or listening to the next CD. I really enjoyed this audio book and the superb narration of Roger Mueller who added greater life and depth to the entire book.

While this book is listed under General Christian Fiction, I think it would make a great audio book to entertain a family with older children - 12 & up - on a long road trip. It's mix of action and love will appeal to both guys and gals alike and make a long ride seem like an adventure in World War II history!


A reluctant war hero returns home and encounters a new chance at love. No sooner has Shawn Collins returned 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 his son Patrick and his aging father, and grieve the loss of his wife in private. When Shawn asks Katherine Townsend to be Patrick’s nanny while he’s on the road, he has no idea how this decision will impact his life. Could it be the key to his future happiness and the mending of his heart? Or will the war once again threaten his chances for a new start? Dan Walsh does not disappoint in this tender story of family ties and the healing of a broken heart.
