A Wonderful Ending to a Tremendous Series:

This book is 5th and last of the Dolan Brothers series. I generally pass on stories taking place during the years between the two World Wars; I just cannot muster much interest. However, this series as a whole ? and this book -- are absolutely wonderful.

AFTER THE PARADE is a continuation of Johnny and Katherine Henry?s story (WITH HEART). During the span of time between these two books, Johnny and Katherine have had a baby girl. She was born with no hope of living and Johnny blamed himself (he was ?Mud Creek trash?).

Katherine was devastated by Johnny?s coldness and his insistence that she get a divorce while he went to war. The story opens as Johnny is returning to Oklahoma ? as a hero. He learns rather quickly that Katherine has not gotten the divorce.

It is perfectly obvious that these 2 people are still in love but both are too proud to apologize to the other. Things continue to go downhill until Katherine finally finds herself at the lawyer?s office.

This book is a ?tour de force? because many of the characters in the previous 4 installments either reappear or are mentioned in this story. The author did a lovely job of updating readers of the changes the families experienced.

I can?t find anything to complain about this book ? other than I wish there were another one coming. Beautifully written with distinct characterizations are two things a reader can expect from this author. Ms. Garlock outdid herself; she?s also captured a bygone era.
