When Pete Swift is asked to write the life and times of Samuel Gable, he has no idea the depth of the river he has been asked to swim, nor where the currents are about to take him.

I relished this book and cannot recommend it highly enough.

A Month Of Tomorrows touched my heart. As I was reading this book I had the honor of attending my great uncle's 90th birthday celebration. Like Samuel he is a WWII hero as are all WWII vets. I felt connected to all of the characters immediately. I laughed, I felt the pain of war, I felt the love of family, and I felt broken hearts. Chuck Walsh brought the characters to life. I would consider Chuck Walsh's style very similar to Nicholas Sparks. The story flows effortlessly and the characters beco ...more

A sad yet happy novel. The author weaves together the past and the present and reminds us that life is an adventure. I laughed and cried, but finished with a smile.

I received this ebook for free in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed are entirely my own.

This was a hard book for me to get through and that surprised me. First of all, I'm a Navy wife and have been for more than 15 years. I love this country and those who serve it so when I read the premise of this book I assumed I would love it. I loved some parts and hated other parts. All the parts with Samuel (the WWII vet) I loved. He was a believable and strong character. The other main

"Poignant, dramatic and historically accurate, A Month of Tomorrow deftly weaves the lives of its characters past and present into a powerful and unique story." Paul Dinas, Independent Editor

"Chuck Walsh is a new kind of disciplined writer who 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, and a marvelous one at that."

This book had me tearing up in the middle of the airport. I even had to wipe my eyes. How embarrassing!

This book hit an emotional note for me. I got so sucked into the story. I don't think there's really anything I can say that won't give away parts of the last third of the book, but... I guess I felt like this was an amazing love story without the gaudiness of a romance novel. (Also, I like old war movies and military novels, as well as period pieces, so that was a bonus as well.)

I listened to the audio book. The characters in this book are wonderfully presented and the kind of people you'd love to know in real life. The story, as told by a WWII solider to a man writing his memoires, is captivating, heartwarming, and sometimes sorrowful. The author is a true master at using a story within a story to take us back thru' time to experience love, faith, and hope for our tomorrows. There is more than one romance to enjoy as the characters go through experiencing the present a ...more

Loved it!!

This story touched me in so many ways. Bringing honor to those who fought, and continue to fight, for our freedom. The honest love of a man and woman. Friendship. Family. Memories of days gone by. I didn't want to put the book down, and couldn't wait to pick it back up again.
Looking forward to reading more from Chuck.

Great character development. I felt at times that I was reading an abridged version because of certain sections that seemed to not transition smoothly -- particularly towards the end of the book. But this did not takeaway from the overall quality of the story.
