Overview Any woman who has felt the pain and loss of ruined dreams knows the feelings of betrayal, discouragement, and regret that seem impossible to let go of. Often doubts whisper in your ear that there is no way to rebuild and nothing left to plant. Jan Coleman speaks directly to those who have experienced devastating loss by reminding all of the simple lesson from the book of Joel.

A must read for the woman who needs hope for the future Feb 17, 2003
Jan has words of wisdom in this book. Wish I would have read it while I was in the midst of some of my turmoil as I might have made some different choices & saved myself additional heartache. Provides a sense of hope for broken dreams and promises. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has suffered ever so slightly or like in my case again & again & again. I find it very soothing to know I am not the only one who has suffered, it is a form of therapy to relate to others in this way. Would be a great gift for a friend in need.

AFTER THE LOCUSTS is just right for those who feel they trying to survive tough times/ wasted years, and want to move on. Author Jan Coleman will take your hand and lead you into fresh hope. The writing is excellent, and you will be pulled into true experiences and personal discoveries---that can make all the difference. As I reader I experienced God's nearness and wisdom through these pages. Scriptures and gems of thought almost leaped off the pages. Now I want to read my Bible more. Women who are single, divorced, lonely, hurting will be especially blessed by this book. Yet it will speak to any woman at any time in her life. It makes a thoughtful gift.
This book was too good to keep to myself! May 21, 2002
Ever read a book that you couldn't stop talking about? After the Locusts is one of those books. Jan Coleman writes as if she's talking directly to you. She shares many stories from friends she's personally encouraged through ruined dreams, and gives you hope that you or someone you know will overcome those wasted years.
This book would be great for a women's Bible study. Highlighting the Book of Joel, Jan Coleman relives her own failed marriage; comparing that loss to the desolation left by a swarm of locusts. After the Locusts touches on coping with the loss of a loved oned, bankruptcy, dealing with troubled teens, divorce, and much more.

WOW! I couldn't put this book down. God placed this book in my hands at a critical time in my marriage. It helped me realize that I could make it through anything and I would be abundantly blessed if I gave everything to the Lord. Thank you for writing this encouraging book. I am recommending this book to everyone who can benefit from it. I am looking forward to Jan's next book.
