A story too good to be fiction but too frightening to be real, “What Follows After” is the story of a family struggling with contemporary problems in a June Cleaver world. It is set during a time when people kept their problems secret and divorce was scandalous. At the onset of the Cuban missile crisis, a little boy is abducted after he and his older brother runaway from home because they are having a difficult time dealing with their parents’ marital troubles. Colt, the older brother, is telling the story as he is on the way to a house he inherited.
Dan Walsh’s story-telling makes you feel like you were there and he’s reminding you about what happened. Having grown up during the Cold War, it’s interesting to see how different our fears change over the years–from nuclear war to terrorism. You will not want to put this book down. You will fall in love with the characters. You will cry and laugh and wonder how the world has changed so very much but still has the same old problems.
“But what follows after any life that is surrendered to Him (God) will one day be a life well worth living and lead to an eternity of everlasting joy.”
