The Homecoming Blog Tour Stop!

First, I must start this post by offering my apologies - I'd really hoped (and expected) to have a full review of The Homecoming by Dan Walsh posted by yesterday. Unpacking and finding places for stuff since the move is still taking up most of my time (books are the worst offenders, LOL!). The Homecoming is Walsh's sequel to The Unfinished Gift, a sweet story I reviewed back in December (you can read that review here). So far this second offering is an equally heartwarming tale, sure to be enjoyed by fans of the first book. And I have to say, I love getting to know Shawn. :)

Here's a bit about the story to "tide you over" till I can get a full review up:

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.

I've never heard of this. I like the cover. I can't wait for your review.

@Juju - The publisher did a great job with this cover - simple, but it fits the story well.
