What Follows After by Dan Walsh

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.


*** Special THANK YOU to the publisher for providing me with a review copy.***


Dan Walsh is the bestselling author of several books, including The Unfinished Gift, The Discovery, and The Reunion, as well as The Dance and The Promise with Gary Smalley. He has won three Carol awards, and three of his novels were finalists for RT Book Reviews Inspirational Book of the Year (2011-2013). Dan lives with his wife in the Daytona Beach area, where he’s busy researching and writing his next novel. Visit for more.


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.


I was so so so surprised at how much I absolutely loved this novel!
I have never read anything by Dan Walsh, but I desperately want to find more of his books…like now!
Never have I been so completely immersed in a story like this.
Immediately the author does a wonderful job of drawing you into the many mysteries of this story.
I felt what the characters felt….the dread, the fear and panic, the sadness.
I had only known Scott and Gina for a few chapters and wanted this family to come back together and find restoration.
That is talent…..when an author can draw you so deeply into a story that you feel what they feel.
I read this book in one day, I could not stop reading- I had to know what had happened to Timmy.
On top of this story of a missing child, the nation is on the brink of crisis.
I can recall my mom talking about this time in history and I think those who remember this time period will find that the author has brilliantly revisited this time in history!
To the author, bravo!!!! Absolutely one of my favorite reads this year!!! Cannot recommend this one more!!!
