Guest Review by Faye Oygard of Dan Walsh's "The Discovery"

The Discovery
Dan Walsh
(Revell, 2012)

5 Stars *****

Mr. Walsh's best book so far!
The Discovery is a one-of-a-kind, skillfully woven tale that has a timeless quality about it, set both in the present day, and during WWII. Michael Warner is an aspiring author, who has a famous writer as 
his grandfather. Michael's Grandfather leaves behind many 
unsolved mysteries about his younger days, and his family.

One day Michael stumbles upon an unpublished manuscript of his
grandfather's, hidden with care for Michael to find. Within the
manuscript's pages Michael might just find the answers his family 
has been searching for.

This book is Inspirational Fiction at its finest. The Discovery has 
it all--a heart warming, romantic love story, interwoven into a tale 
of suspense and sacrifice. It was a book that swallowed me up, to 
the point where I felt as if I was standing side by side with the
characters as they experienced a myriad of emotions, ranging 
fromones that will quirk up the corners of your mouth, to ones that 
will make your heart ache and pound in suspense.

The Discovery grabbed me from the first page, and didn't let go 
until the very end, in all a completely satisfying read, of multiple 

The Discovery is not a book to be missed!
