ABOUT THE BOOK

In 1962, life was simple, the world made sense, and all families were happy.
And when they weren’t, everyone knew you were supposed to pretend.

For the past year, Scott and Gina Harrison have been living a lie. While they show up at family get-togethers in the same car, they’ve actually been separated for over a year. To keep up the charade, they’ve even instructed their sons, Colt and Timmy, to lie–to their grandparents, their teachers, and their friends.

Colt, for one, has had enough, so he hatches a plan. He and his little brother will run away from their Florida home, head for their aunt’s house in Georgia, and refuse to come home until their parents get back together. But when things go terribly, terribly wrong, Scott and Gina must come to grips with years of neglect and mistrust in order to recover their beloved sons, their love for one another, and their marriage.

In this emotional story, bestselling author Dan Walsh takes you on a journey to rediscover the things that matter most in life–love, truth, and family. With profound insight into the heart of a hurting child, he reminds us that a time will come to look back on hard times and smile, because we’ll know that what follows after . . . is not what we expected at all.

“Dan is an artist and his canvas is the novel, where he uses different colors and hues of words to create a masterpiece. What Follows After is a story that will surely touch your heart and soul.”–John M. Wills, New York Journal of Books

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

I became a huge Dan Walsh fan after I read his first book! And his books just keep getting better! I have to say that What Follows After is one of the best books I have read! Ever! Scott and Gina Harrison was separated, but not only were they living a lie, they forced their two boys to lie for them! In order to bring their parents together, the two boys decide to run away to their aunts house, and not come home until their parents were together again. But their plan ended in a terrible situation, and Scott and Gina were then forced to be together, and take a good look at their lives, and what they were doing to their boys. Was their happiness more important that the happiness of their children?

From the very first page, this story captured my heart and attention. The characters are so uniquely created and developed that they seem like part of your family! I kept thinking about praying for this family and the horrible situation they were in! I was scared for the boys, and annoyed at the parents because of what they expected their kids to do. But the important thing about this story is that author Dan Walsh weaves God’s Word and the importance of living for Him. And Mr. Walsh shows how God can take our mistakes, no matter how horrible they are and turn them around for His Glory. God does this in our lives when we give our situations to Him and trust Him to work through them. I thought of the Bible verse Romans 8:28 many times while reading this book. I was to really encourage you to pick up a copy of What Follows After by this amazing and gifted storyteller! Expect the tears to come, because they will, but you will find that this is a book well worth your time and money!
