Sunday Blog Tour Clips

It's been humbling to read the reviews that have already started posting from the Blog Tour. I won't be able to post them all here. It will be going on throughout the week with almost 50 bloggers participating. But I wanted to give you at least a sampling of the reviews coming in about The Homecoming. As an author, I'm not sure there's anything more satisfying than reading the kinds of things I've been reading today.

"I fell in love with the characters in the first novel, and that emotional tie was strengthened in this novel. A thoroughly satisfying read. I highly recommend it."

"Once again, Walsh skillfully brought me back in time and made me feel as though I was there. I laughed, wept and rejoiced with the Collins' family...a story that reveals the horrors of war, mended relationships, childhood innocence, tender romance and new beginnings. The Homecoming deserves a position among the classics."

"I would very highly recommend this book. The writing is wonderful. The story is beautiful. I was hooked from the start until the end. I enjoyed getting to spend more time with these fabulous characters. They feel so much like people I know now...These books will go on my all-time favorites list."

"What a great read! I'd like to see a movie created from this novel...When I turned the final page, I sighed in contentment. This is my kind of book!"

See what I mean? And this will be going on all week. Of course, there's no guarantee everyone will feel the same way about the book, but it's been a great first day.
