The Unfinished Gift :  A Novel

   
Author: Dan Walsh 

Ian Collins is an old man without his son. Patrick Collins is a young boy without his father. On his Christmas list are only three items. He wants the army to find his father. He wants to leave his grandfather’s house. And he wants the dusty wooden soldier in Grandfather’s attic—the one he is forbidden to touch. Set at Christmastime in 1943, The Unfinished Gift is the engaging story of a family in need of forgiveness. With simple grace, it reminds us of the small things that affect powerful change in our hearts—a young boy’s prayers, a shoe box of love letters, and even a half-carved soldier, long forgotten. This nostalgic story of reconciliation will touch your heart.

Review:   
"Seven-year-old Patrick's dreadful Christmas began with his mother's death, then worsened when he was left with a grandfather who bitterly calls him "The Boy." Grief-stricken over his mother, confused at his grandfather's harsh treatment, Patrick prays for his father's quick return from war. His grandfather's bitterness leads to a harsh confrontation when Patrick asks to keep a hand-carved wooden soldier he finds in the attic. Roger Mueller's richly developed characterizations contrast the gruff, unforgiving grandfather with Patrick's endearing sweetness and keep the listener engaged with this Christmas tale of forgiveness. Mueller's powerful portrayal of a season of second chances set in WWII America should not be missed."
