What Follows After by Dan Walsh (Review)

In October 1962, Colt Harrison and his little brother, Timmy, hatched a plan. They would run away from their Florida home, head for their aunt's house in Savannah, Georgia, and refuse to come home until their parents got back together. But things go terribly, terribly wrong. Colt's mother and father must come to grips with years of neglect and mistrust in order to recover their beloved sons, their love for one another, and their broken marriage.

In this emotional story, Dan Walsh takes readers on a journey to rediscover the things that matter most in life--love, truth, and family.


What Follows After is the fourth book I've read written by Dan Walsh and I've just got to say that this author is an extraordinary writer. He has a way of writing that just grips you and makes you not want to put down the book until you reached the conclusion, which was exactly the case with this book. I started it thinking I would just read a couple chapters but I just couldn't put it down and found myself reading the whole thing in one day! The story was so touching that it had me tearing up several times, which is something that doesn't happen much for me so I was surprised by that!

With this story being about missing children, it was a little strange for there to be such a strong message about how to improve marriage. I think all the advice was great, and very much needed for the couple, but it felt a little weird for the parents of the missing boys to be worrying about their marriage at that time. However, this was such a small dislike and the rest of the story was so amazingly good that it doesn't affect my rating of the book.

All in all, it was a great read and one that I heartily recommend.

I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.
