Discussion Questions for Book Clubs

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. With their family about to collapse, Colt Harrison and his little brother, Timmy, hatched a plan. They would run away from their Florida home, head for their aunt’s house in Savannah, Georgia, and refuse to come home until their parents got back together. But things go terribly, terribly wrong. Colt’s mother and father must come to grips with years of neglect and mistrust in order to recover their sons, their love for one another, and their broken marriage. In this emotional story set against the backdrop of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Dan Walsh takes readers on a journey to rediscover the things that matter most in life–love, truth, and family.

  1. I believe I have five of your books on my NOOK. They’re staying there as I will read them again and again. I am looking forward to “What Follows After.” I find your books attention-riveting and I love the references to our Savior. Blessings to you and your precious family. Nora

  2. This sounds super good and part of it takes place in Savannah yea! My home town well City. So hoping I can find this one when it comes out.

    • Hope you like it, Patti. Most of it takes place in Florida, though. Another of my books, The Discovery, has a lot of Savannah scenes. You might like that one, too.
