After the Thaw is the sequel to Frozen Footprints but can be read as a stand alone novel. I found this book intriguing, captivating, and moving. The characters struggle to put their pasts behind and move on to their futures. Some of them cling to their faith to find their way. Charlene thinks life is safe and her future bright. Clay has left prison to settle into a calm and easy lifestyle. Ben feels his new adventures are set in concrete, yet sinister and frightening events change everything. Decisions will need to be made and their choices will be significant. Discover the twists and turns in After the Thaw and you will be staying up at night to find the answers.
I received a copy from the author, Therese Heckenkamp for my honest review. I will be reading book one, now to fill in the characters’ past. Thank you, Therese!
