Overview

WWII hero Samuel Gable has weeks to live. Eighty-eight years old, his body ravaged by cancer, he's full of unrest for reasons that have nothing to do with the horrid disease. He has secrets to divulge, and local writer Pete Swift agrees to document what he assumes are a few tales of war. As Samuel recalls perilous days spent in the jungles of the South Pacific, however, Pete begins to live vicariously through Samuel's stories. A kinship grows as the saga moves from the deadly battlefield to one of the great love stories of all time, as Samuel recalls his love affair with Callie, the dark-haired beauty he fell in love with before being shipped off to war.

Samuel's stories weave the past and the present, and the reasons for his unrest begin to unfold. Pete comes to learn that Samuel's son, Caleb, left home abruptly thirty years ago due to a tragic accident that ripped the family apart. Meanwhile, Pete finds himself drawn to Samuel's daughter, Gabby, who moved back home to take care of her dying father. With Pete, Gabby has a shoulder to cry on and a diversion from the impending death that awaits her father. Their chemistry sets up a passionate collision course that threatens to undermine Samuel and Pete's relationship, not to mention Pete's marriage.

Both Samuel and Pete are burdened by situation and circumstance, but for entirely different reasons. Set in a backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Tennessee, these unlikely friends are in a race against time to heal the wounds of their hearts.

Editorial Reviews

Author and NY Times Best Selling Military Technical Adviser and Editor - W. Thomas Smith, Jr.
Chuck Walsh is a new kind of disciplined writer who-unlike many of his contemporaries in the e-media age where everyone sees themselves as a writer-serves as a model of the old school where mastery of the art is the only way to earn (and truly own) the title 'writer'. Walsh is indeed a writer in the purest sense,m and a marvelous one at that, his mastery of the craft demonstrated by the ease, deftness, unpretentiousness and authority with which he tells a story.

    A Month of Tomorrows made me think of my mother and father and what they went through during WWII. It also reinforced my belief in true love, commitment, honor and integrity. I laughed, cheered and cried, but most of all, I did not want it to end. Based on his uncle’s life, I can only imagine how Walsh looks up to that man. Hat is off, hand is on my heart!

    A Must Read - Story of a Many of Courage and Integrity, Entertaining and Uplifting

    A Month of Tomorrows
    by Chuck Walsh

    In his novel, A Month of Tomorrow, Chuck Walsh weaves an entrancing story of past and present as World War II veteran, Samuel Gabel, recounts his life. Set in the beautiful hills of Tennessee the reader is quickly transported to a slower pace of life and surrounded with the beauty of mountains, streams and nature. As Samuel knows his cancer will soon take his life he has but one thing left undone and that is to leave his children the story of his life. Pete, a local author, begrudgingly makes the time to go out to the home place and meet with Samuel. Samuel's blunt mannerism, his passion to release what is in his heart and the awareness of being in the presence of a great man captivate Pete. He becomes enthralled with getting Samuel's story written.
    When I first began A Month of Tomorrows I quickly misjudged and thought this was going to be just another one of those books bouncing from present to past. Chuck Walsh altered that view quickly as his presentation of this beautiful story stole not only my attention but my heart.
    His characters were so well developed one could not help but want to know more about them. The storyline was gripping, exciting and at times heartbreaking. Walsh mastered the art of blending the past and present seamlessly in this writing. It flowed easily allowing the reader to quickly shift scenes as the storyteller brings us into the lives of Samuel and his family. We feel the love of a mother saying goodbye as her son leaves for war. We see the wretched environment Samuel lived in those years he was at war and as hard as it was we felt the pain and gruesome life of a soldier. We feel the excitement of falling in love. Walsh holds nothing back. Each story Samuel tells is detailed filled. it gives us life lessons and hope. And yes, it does entertain. Once a few pages in it can not be easily put down.
    I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves historical fiction, romance or strong, male role models.

    Note: I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
