The Discovery by Dan Walsh

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 But within the confines of the stately home, he discovers an unpublished manuscript that his grandfather, a literary giant whose novels sold in the millions, had kept hidden from everyone--but which he clearly intended Michael to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.

Dan Walsh is the award-winning author of The Unfinished Gift, The Homecoming, The Deepest Waters, Remembering Christmas, and The Discovery. A member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Dan served as a pastor for 25 years. He lives with his wife in the Daytona Beach area, where he's busy researching and writing his next novel.

Sometimes I find a book that draws me into the story so intensely that I feel like I have experienced everything right along with the characters. This book took me along on an exciting journey to another place and time.

The story begins when Michael Warner's grandfather dies and Michael inherits his grandfather's mansion. Along with Michael, the reader is transported back in time to days of war, espionage, spies and romance.

Along with the wealth he inherits, Michael is also entrusted with discovering the family secrets from long ago. The family has always wondered why their grandparents never talked about their early years, and they didn't have as much as a wedding photo to share.  Maybe they will finally find out the truth about their family heritage and history.

It is hard to say much more about this book without giving away spoilers. Filled with a beautiful and heartwarming romance, incredible sacrifice and danger, this is a fantastic book that I highly recommend.
