What Follows After is Dan Walsh's latest novel and the first that I've read of his solo works. It is apparent that he's got a burden for making marriages work. There were many parts of this book that I liked and about the same amount that I didn't like.
The kidnapping and emotions surrounding it were both frightening and heartbreaking. This book gripped me so much that I read it in one short day. I had a hard time though following the characters in the beginning as they jumped back and forth several decades. Once I got down who was who I was fine.
I didn't enjoy the parts about the Cuban Missile Crisis--just found that to be boring and distracting from the real story, "Where is Timmy?"
I also didn't enjoy the way the main couple were counseled by the secondary couple. It felt preachy and uncomfortable. I just don't think that part flowed well.
In all, I enjoyed it. Not sure I'll seek out another by this author anytime soon as I don't think I'm in need of the therapy.
Here's the back cover:
