Book Review: The Discovery by Dan Walsh (5 Stars)

I’ll be adding this to be ‘short list’ of to-be-read ebooks based on my uncle’s review and recommendation.

As a Matter of Fancy

The Discovery by Dan Walsh

5 out of 5 stars

Read in February 2014

Outstanding. A World War Two era mystery and romance framed by a contemporary tale of discovering and reacting to the old manuscript. Well-conceived, well-researched and well-written. Good contrast between the peace and plenty in modern America with the fear and struggle of America in the 1940s.

I can’t say enough about how the manuscript transports the reader into that time and place. I’m old enough to know it “feels” right. The military, political, cultural and religious elements are appropriate for that era. (It speaks to the role of women in that day; minority issues are not addressed.)

The Discovery will inevitably be compared to The Notebook and similar tales; it’s at least as good. Hope to see the movie some day (after it’s made 😉 ).

Excellent read. (This review is my first five star rating…
