Dan Walsh: Home Again
(November 8, 2011)
With skillful storytelling, Dan Walsh creates a Christmas story which will have readers remembering every good and perfect gift of Christmas. Remembering Christmas (Revell) finds Rick Denton living his life on his own terms. When his mother calls Thanksgiving weekend begging him to come home after his stepfather has a stroke, Rick is more than a little reluctant. He’s never liked Art and resents the man’s presence in his life.
When what was supposed to be just a couple days helping out at the family bookstore turns into weeks of cashing out old ladies and running off the homeless man who keep hanging about, Rick’s attitude sours even more.
Still, slowly but surely, the little bookstore and its quirky patrons—as well as the lovely young woman who works at his side each day—work their magic on him, revealing to Rick the truth about his family, his own life, and the true meaning of Christmas.
