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 But within the confines of the stately home, he discovers an unpublished manuscript that his grandfather, a literary giant whose novels sold in the millions, had kept hidden from everyone—but which he clearly intended Michael to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.
The Discovery is truly a wonderful story within a story. The novel shifts back and forth between Michael in “modern day” and to the old manuscript that he is reading, which is set in 1942. Dan Walsh was careful not to move back and forth too often, and I appreciated the fine balance he created.
Dan Walsh is a great writer and this book truly shines. The romance thread was so tender and added vibrancy throughout the setting of war and espionage. I definitely recommend The Discovery.
