I really enjoyed reading this novel. It was full of adventure and excitment as you traveld along with April on her quest to make it to her brother's wedding. I really enjoyed watching April grow into herself as she realized that thier is more to life than being waited in and being the center of attention. This is a great story if you are having trouble putting life into perspective and for just finding out how to put other people before yourself and the joy that can be found in simple and random acts of kindess. Pick up this book nad let it help you to help others.

The Homecoming

By: Dan Walsh

In this Novel we are reunited with Patrick Collins and his family who we were introduced to in the Novel the Unfinished Gift. His father Shawn is still home from the war in England but little does he know that he will be called upon to perform another service for the army. Katherine Townsend is the social worker who helped Patrick in the first novel but in this book she has given notice at her old job. When Shawn is assigned to a War Bonds tour that will last for four months he calls on Katherine Townsend to step in and act as Patrick's nanny while he is away. A bond forms between these two as the are pulled together and as they go through the different circumstances that arise. Pick up this book and see just what happens to Patrick, Shawn, and Katherine and see just how their story will end.

I truly loved reading this novel and was excited to see how these characters were doing. Dan Walsh has done it again in book. It was a page turner and had a few nail biting signs that had me turning the page faster to see what happens. I really enjoyed seeing these characters again and seeing that they were all doing fine but had more test and trials ahead of them. In the end it all turns out right and even though there is one sad part to the story it all comes right in the end.
