Review:
The Reunion is a beautifully gentle novel with a considered pace and flowing words that really takes you along in this story ultimately about love and redemption, but also including loss, change, doubt, heroism and above all quiet lives of unexpected worth. How much do we know our neighbours, how do we really see ourselves, how easy is it to lose yourself or indeed to find yourself? To me, this gentle novel brought all these questions and thoughts to mind.

It's the story of Aaron, a Vietnam veteran, profoundly affected by war, and now in his 60s a simple handyman at a trailer park. It's also about his daughter who never really knew her father, and a journalist whose father died in the Vietnam war and all the other people who intersect with these lives. The story has its base in war, but more importantly it's a story of what happens after a war and the longer term consequences.
