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 But within the confines of the stately home, he discovers an unpublished manuscript that his grandfather, a literary giant whose novels sold in the millions, had kept hidden from everyone--but which he clearly intended Michael to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

Dan Walsh has further cemented his spot on my keeper shelf with his brand-new release,The Discovery. Written as a novel within a novel, The Discovery is both contemporary and historical. While many authors excel in writing either one or the other genre, Walsh has not only created equally touching stories separated by decades but has seamlessly woven them together. You will read along with Michael and feel his response as he discovers what his grandfather had written and left for him to find. This book is truly a work of crafstmanship and, just like Walsh's previous offerings, it stirred my heart. Many call Dan Walsh the "Nicholas Sparks of Christian Fiction" but I think he is the one who has set the bar for Sparks to emulate. Add this one to your must-read list!
