Setting: Rawlings, Oklahoma, 1945

Sensuality: 7

Johnny Henry returns from World War II to a boisterous hero's welcome, but the only face he really wants to see is that of his estranged wife, Kathleen. Craving assurance that he is alive and well, Kathleen watches him from afar, never realizing that he searches the crowd for her. After the parade is over, Johnny struggles to rebuild his life and deal with his love for Kathleen--a love that he is convinced is now forbidden. For her part, Kathleen's heart is breaking as she's often thrown into Johnny's company in the small ranching community of Rawlings, Oklahoma. The tragedy that tore the couple apart before Johnny shipped out for the Pacific still haunts them both. And the depth of misunderstanding that lies between them seems insurmountable until Kathleen's life is threatened and Johnny is forced to confront his fears.

Garlock offers a keen insight into the mores and character of 1940s middle America in this post- World War II novel. Blue-collar workers and the rural atmosphere blend well with the hint of deranged obsession that threatens the heroine in this fourth and final of Garlock's books set in Oklahoma. --Lois Faye Dyer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Dorothy Garlock's series set in the 30s and 40s has been truly groundbreaking -- not many romance novels being set in these decades.
AFTER THE PARADE continues the story of Johnny Henry and Kathleen Dolan from WITH HEART. And tells the story of them and their marriage after Johnny returns from World War II. Their marriage is in jeopardy after the death of their infant daughter -- a death Johnny blames on himself and his heritage. There is also something more dangerous about as an admirer of Kathleen's crosses the line from admiration to obsession.
Dorothy Garlock deftly tells their story as only someone of her talent can. Here's hoping more authors follow her lead and write stories set in the 30s and 40s. AFTER THE PARADE is a must read.

Garlock manages to pull out a historical period not usually covered by romance authors - and gives us a truly wonderful story. I enjoyed the book that preceded "After the Parade" but LOVED this final work the best. Her characters have substance - with both strengths and weaknesses, faults and goodness. Garlock is to be commended for her ability to cover the era so acurately. Kathleen and Johnny's story is one that will all can identify with - a tragic event, depression, denial and the difficult path to rebuilding. The characters that surround the couple and support them are as rich, and interesting as Kathleen and Johnny. Dorothy, what a wonderful tribute to your husband, by dedicating this one to his memory.

Once again Dorothy Garlock gives us a great book. Johnny Henry and Kathleen must overcome their own misgivings and issues surrounding their backgrounds and the death of their baby. A strange character that is fixated on Kathleen only adds to drama.
The characters in this book are very real. There were several times that I wished I could snap some common sense into Johnny Henry and get these two together.
This was a great ending to the war series. For anyone who has read "With Hope", "With Song" and especially "With Love" this is a must read.

I don't think Ms. Garlock could get enough of Johnny and Kathleen Henry either, as she created another masterpiece centered around this couple! I read this book in 2 days, and found it to be just as good or maybe better than the previous book, "With Heart." I don't know what I'll do without reading about the people in this family... It was really easy to grow to love these fictional characters, and I long for more!! I hope Ms. Garlock continues with some of the other characters in this book. READ THIS BOOK... YOU'LL BE IN LOVE WITH JOHNNY AND KATHLEEN HENRY, TOO!!!

Her stories captures your interest within the first couple of pages. I have never been disappointed with any of her books which I have read almost all of them.

In the final book of her latest series, Dorothy Garlock writes a 2nd book on the lives of the beautiful red-headed Kathleen and Johnny Henry. I didn't think that there could be another book about them, the way the last one ended. However, Ms. Garlock came up with a wonderful story to keep these characters alive. All the other characters from the series show up or are mentioned in this book, and it's fun to be reaquainted with them. She is so wonderful on character definition, and I particularly enjoyed the depths to Johnny Henry. If you enjoyed the rest of the series, you'll be doing yourself a favor finishing this book.

I enjoy reading all Dorothy Garlock's books. This book was so terrific. Not only did I get to see how people lived after World War 2, which was so realistic, but enjoyed a truly gifted writer write a truly wonderful book. This is a book that everyone should read, including men, and share in the romance as well as the history it shows us. Something that is rarely done well.
