★★★★★ Five-Star Readers’ Favorite Review:
Death is always an unwelcome presence, especially in the home. Once he knocks, it could leave an open wound that festers and makes everyone vulnerable. Such is the story of We Go On by Regina Walker. The first installment in her Then Comes Hope trilogy, this story is about when one family untimely loses its oldest son. That leaves three members: Josh, Liz, and their youngest son Tyler. They try to settle and adjust to the rhythms of a new life in the absence of Colby. But grief is a house guest that often overextends its visit, especially when everything is saturated by the presence of the one who passed away. And in Colby’s wake, he leaves a pretty mare named Dusty, and her upkeep may well become the tool that leads the family’s deteriorating relationship and faith in God on a path to healing. The surviving son watches it all unfold before his eyes as he tries to make sense of his own pain.
The novel’s core circles around the complexities of love and faith. There is no doubt that Josh, Liz, and Tyler still love one another, but the grief that clouds the family relationship causes this love to become inarticulate and, at times, distant. The love between the parents is still there, but it is taken for granted. Regina Walker has written a profound study on that untalked-about issue that besets families faced with a tragic event. We Go On is a brilliant emotional standoff that grows in intensity over every chapter. What I admire most about the story is the way the characters are developed and the changes they go through. We Go On transcends drama. It is a solid reflection of people undergoing an existential crisis, and it shows them relying upon their own human faculties to learn, change, and grow. Such work deserves an audience, and you should not miss out on reading this tale.
