Review of "What Follows After"

Review of What Follows After

by Dan Walsh

What Follows After

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.

MY REVIEW of What Follows After:  Prepare for the ride of your life!  This book is like a rollercoaster of emotions.....fear, anxiety, apprehension, hope, anticipation, and on and on and on.   I was so excited as I read that I would want to drop everything and hit the kindle again to read!   Obviously, I had to stop for some quick breaks to do the everday chores or attend meetings, etc. but I hurried so that I could continue reading.   Great tragedy strikes a young family as they struggle desperately to resolve their marital issues as well as deal with tragedy their family is enduring a living nightmare.  I love the way this book focuses on hope, second chances, trust and forgiveness,    5 Stars all the way!!! This book is amazing.   I felt as though the characters were dear friends that I longed to hear from.    The set was generic enough that it could be in any state of United States which means it could be your town!   The author pulled me in and kept my attention all throughout.   Oh, and throw in the  Cuban Missile Crisis and you have the makings of a great suspense indeed.  
I received a free kindle version of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
