The Reunion by Dan Walsh is a book that had me interested from the first page. Aaron Miller is a Vietnam Veteran who has not seen his family in over 40 years and is now working as a handyman in a trailer park in Florida. Dave Russo lives an hour North of Aaron Miller, and is he working on a story about Vietnam Veterans as a tribute to his father who never returned from Vietnam. Dave Russo interviews a wealthy oil tycoon, who explains what happened in Vietnam that will forever tie him to Aaron Miller.
As all the other books by Dan Walsh, I really enjoyed this book. I read it in less than 24 hours, and I loved the characters in the book. I was rooting for all of them, and I wanted them to solve the problems and issues they were experiencing in their lives: Aaron’s estrangement from his family, Dave’s feelings of regret about choosing his career over his family, and the need for Aaron’s children to forgive their father for his lack of contact in their past. Throughout the book, I think the theme of forgiveness was very prevalent. Also, there was a focus on relationships, be those friendships, family relationships, or Christian faith.
