Life After by Katie Ganshert

What happens to the one person who survives a bombing where several others lost their life? Autumn Manning's story of survival is her story in Life After.

Life After shares a little about what happened on the day of the bombing when Autumn was riding the transit train in Chicago. However, mostly Autumn doesn't remember what happened that day. However, she does remember everything she knows about each of the victims over the past year. She has spent this past year healing physically but also trying to heal her grief and guilt. Why was she the only one to survive? What does God want her to do with her life? Why does she still feel so restless?

Paul Elliott lost his wife in the same train bombing. He and his twelve year old daughter and young son are also trying to heal from the tragedy. Except Paul doesn't want to talk about it. He just wants to get past it all and live a normal life with his family.

Paul and Autumn are brought together in Life After. Together they sift through the wreckage in their minds and come to some new conclusions about life. . .You'll have to read Life After to hear the whole story but you will be so glad you did.

Life After is my first book by Katie Ganshert and I know it won't be my last. I thought her characters seemed so realistic.  I read this book in less than 24 hours. I simply couldn't put it down. . .and after reading it, it is one of those books that just sticks with you as you think about your own life. Those are some of my favorite kinds of fiction books. I highly recommend Life After!

I received a copy of this book from Waterbrook. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
