Review: Life After by:Katie Ganshert
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.
As shocking as it may seem, life doesn't go back to normal after a huge tragedy in our lives. And on a side note everyone's definition of a tragedy is different. Autumn Manning has experienced a life altering tragedy that still holds her life in it's ugly grip and won't let go. Paul Elliot on the other hand it means moving on and letting go. He hasn't had too much trouble moving on and he wants everyone else to do the same.
I felt sorry for Autumn from the start. I have been through a death in my life that kept me in a very dark, desperate place for many years. It is such a suffocating place to be and to find peace in that place is near impossible. For many years I prayed that God would help me out of that place because I was ready to move on.
Paul and his stance sort of worried me from the beginning because I felt like he was trying to cover something up. This book is an amazing book with an eye catching story line. It is definitely NOT a boring read. It full of action and suspense. I loved it!
