Remembering Christmas


My first exposure to Dan Walsh was The Homecoming. 

You can read my review of that here.


I have been hooked on Dan Walsh’s books ever since and was thrilled to be able to review Remembering Christmas.   It’s an amazing story with an important message and has a totally unexpected twist that took me by surprise. 

There are so many wonderful lessons to be learned from this book; selflessness, commitment, loyalty, forgiveness……..just to name a few! 

Not only is this a romantic love story, it’s also the love story of family ties and just how important those relationships are.  

Rick Denton thinks he has it all with his successful career and carefree lifestyle.  He is hard hearted, cocky and self sufficient, needing no one to lean on.  Rick is perfectly content climbing the corporate ladder, not caring if he has to crush someone else to do it.   Yet he quickly comes to realize what he is missing when a family crisis forces him to go home to the people he would rather forget. 

Memories begin to wash over Rick and suddenly life seems very different from the way he remembered it.   If you are into books by Nicholas Sparks or Charles Martin, you will definitely want to get your hands on Dan Walsh’s books.   I would not be surprised if this title was made into a movie.  It’s a heartwarming Christmas story, perfect for gift giving or picking up for your own holiday reading.

FROM THE AUTHOR'S WEBSITE:

Rick Denton is a young successful CPA who lives his life on his terms. He works hard, plays hard, and answers to no one. So when his mother calls on 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, despite the fact that his own father abandoned the family when Rick was just twelve. 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 keeps hanging about.

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 some startling truths about his family, his own life, and the true meaning of Christmas. With skillful storytelling, Dan Walsh creates a Christmas story will have readers remembering every good and perfect gift of Christmas.
