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 But within the confines of the stately home, he discovers an unpublished manuscript that his grandfather, a literary giant whose novels sold in the millions hidden from everyone -- but which he clearly intended Michael to find.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.
I've come to appreciate the way Walsh spins a yarn and this one certainly did not disappoint. He always manages to come at a story with a unique viewpoint and The Discovery stands out as one of my favourites to date.
Love the dual stories that mesh together in a complicated and gripping plot that left me clamouring for more. Impeccably paced, Walsh builds the suspense until it is impossible to put the book down before reaching the end. But along with the intrigue, which is revealed bit by bit, the story is anchored with lush descriptions and natural dialogue. A winning combination, for sure!
And the love story(ies)!!! Deep and rich, they provide much fodder for thought. The Discovery will leave a lasting impression -- another book I'd love to see played out on the big screen. All of Walsh's books have been like that for me. Each book has a powerful message big enough to be sustained in a Hollywood script. I sincerely hope he has movie deals in the making, but in the meantime, don't miss out on the print version!
