I have read a few of Mr. Walsh's book and have found them to be wonderfully written by a talented writer including the part of the love story, I was a little lost as I did not realize this is a sequel to the book, The Unfinished Gift, but it kept my interest until the end. Readers who read the The Unfinished Gift, will find The Homecoming a wonderful sequel to have on their keeper shelf.
