Life After Book Review


 About the Book

On the day of a late spring storm, in Chicago, Autumn Manning boarded an “L” train. A bomb explodes, killing everyone in the train car except for Autumn—the sole survivor. A year has passed and Autumn suffocates under a blanket of what ifs and the pressing desire to bring the victims back to life, every day, if only for her. She doesn’t want their stories to be forgotten. She wants to undo what cannot be undone. An unexpected ally joins her efforts, also seeking answers and trying to find a way to stumble ahead.
But one victim’s husband, Paul Elliott, prays to let the dead—and their secrets—rest in peace, undisturbed and unable to hurt his loved ones.
Caught between loss and hope, these restless souls must release the past to embrace a sovereign God. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

Katie Ganshert really knows how to write a story. There hasn't been a book of hers that I haven't adored. Life After has all the feels and I stayed up way too late reading it. Autumn is broken in so many way. Paul is lost and guilt is killing him on the inside. I loved these characters and how life was not easy or simple and right when you thought all was well, it wasn't. This was an emotional roller coaster for me as anxiety, courage, guilt, pain, heartbreak, Jesus, and honesty are all twisted up. I love how God heals the broken and how important the truth is. We serve a big God. 
Great setting, wonderful characters, and splendid writing. This book will grab you from page one. 
Five stars.
