Title: What Follows After: A Novel

Author: Dan Walsh

Publisher: Revell

Publication Date: April 2014

Format: Book

Length: 313 Pages


The first sentence is “The young look forward, the old look back.” The author has looked back to 1962 and captured the culture and two events that happened that year. He applied that look back to the area of Florida, a southern state. The presence of a maid in the home was a prevalent part of that society. Two crises are occurring: A family crisis in which a son has been kidnapped. The Cuban Missile Crisis has everyone in the country afraid of annihilation.

The author has also brought in the feelings about divorce. He deals largely with the importance that a man has a husband and father. He is not just a provider.  God provided a person who stepped out of his comfort one and helped Scott get his priorities straight about God and his family.

This book would appeal to both men and women who enjoy realistic fiction. What Follows After was such a good read that this reviewer then checked out all the Dan Walsh books available at the public library. An inspiring story that makes for a great book discussion selection.
