Book Review of What Follows After by Dan Walsh

I have read and reviewed all of Dan Walsh's books. This one is another winner!

What Follows After has many dramatic elements--runaways, a kidnapping, a faltering marriage. But the emphasis is not just on the drama, but on the changing emotions of all the characters as they live out this true-to-life story.

You will feel like you are a part of this story as it is told, not just reading it, and you will be trying to read as fast as you can to find out how it ends, then slowing down to notice the details the author shares. Dan Walsh does a great job of getting into all of the character's heads from the young boys to the parents and grandparents and even the hired help.

I would recommend this book for all those who like to read dramatic stories that take you into the minds of the characters. It is a stand-alone book, but he has several other stories out, so if you haven't read any of them, check them out as you buy this one. They are all so good it is hard to pick a favorite, so mine is the one I am reading or just finished. So, until a new book comes out by Dan Walsh, this is my current favorite!

This book was a gift from the publisher for review purposes, but all opinions are mine alone.
