What Follows After tells the sensitive tale of a fragmented family in the 1950's. Scott and Gina have been separated for 10 months, yet hardly anyone knows about it, they and their two sons, Colt and Timmy pretend that nothing has changed, that everything is OK. But when Colt and Timmy's plan to bring their parents together goes tragically wrong, when the brothers are separated. Will this family have the faith to pull through?
Dan Walsh returns with a solo novel, that is an unexpected kind of family drama, blending the pain of separation with the mystery of a kidnapping. This book was in many ways different from Mr. Walsh's previous books, but no less hard hitting.
This book explores the heartaches and strong ties of family, especially in tough times. In also shows the stark differences in society and expectations of family during the 1950's in comparison to today.
Overall, this was a well written book, that at times felt a bit slow paced, but nonetheless fantastic story-telling. A simplistically complex novel that will tug your heartstrings in more than a few directions.
