The Reunion by Dan Walsh

Aaron Miller has spent a number of years as a handyman in a trailer park. That is all he is known for. But 40 years earlier, he saved the lives of three fellow comrades in Vietnam. But when he came home from the war, he lost everything - his job, his wife, his kids. But after 40 years, the men he saved are trying to find him.
Dave Russo is trying to write a book on heroes of Vietnam. When he goes to interview a man, that man tells him he needs to interview someone else, and he proceeds to tell Russo Aaron Miller's story. Russo is then hired to find Miller. If he does so, Russo will have enough money to finish his book.
Will Russo be able to find Aaron Miller. If so, will Miller want to meet the men he saved 40 years ago? Will he be able to regain anything he has lost over these last 40 years?
The Reunion was a very powerful book. It was not just about a search for a man who was a hero, but a restoration and a redeeming of one man's life. This is the second book by Dan Walsh that I have read, but I can't wait to read more by him. It was an excellent book and definitely a top book for 2012!
I received this book from Revell for the purpose of this review.
