Yesterday, a few author friends emailed me to let me know The Unfinished Gift had been reviewed by a major review magazine and had received their highest rating. The magazine is called RT Book Reviews and is said to have millions of subscribers and sits on most bookstore magazine racks.
This sounded encouraging, so I looked into it.
The review is in their October issue, which will hit the stands Sept 1st (not sure why mags are always a month back). Couldn't read the entire review, because it's only available to subscribers. But it was given 4.5 stars and listed as a Top Pick! in their Inspirational section (apparently, they only give out 5 stars to something akin to a classic, so this is, in effect, their highest rating). Here's a quote from the review:
"Walsh paints a wonderful picture of life in America during WW2. The characters are richly developed, and the story about love and forgiveness are not to be missed."
