A new adult fiction book is “The Unfinished Gift” by Dan Walsh. Set at Christmas time in 1943, this is a nostalgic story of reconciliation. Patrick Collins is 7 years-old and there are only 3 things on his Christmas list. He wants the Army to find his father. He wants to leave his grandfather’s house and he wants the half-carved soldier that’s tucked away in his grandfather’s attic. Sure to be a touching read call now and reserve.
