Life After

Ganshert, Katie. Life After. New York, USA: Waterbrook Publishing. 2017.


Upon entering Chicago’s busy transit system, in a fiery moment, life changes for Autumn Manning, twenty-two strangers, and many, many others. Dealing with the guilt of surviving in the only way possible for her, she struggles to make it through each day while living the new kind of normal. Paul Elliott, who lost his wife in the same explosion, is tormented with his own daily grief yet trying to also funnel his children through the distress of losing their mother while growing through life. When Autumn collides with Paul, will the survivor heal or hurt those already struggling…

Written in such a manner that draws the reader in and doesn’t let go (in other words, keeps the pages quickly turning), I found myself invested in the characters while feeling their emotions. Continually needing to read “just one more chapter”, Life After deals with thoughts and feelings unfortunately, experienced by many. In a beautiful yet heart-wrenching novel, Christy award-winning author Katie Ganshert tells a story of forgiveness, hope, loss, healing, and reality that remains with you long after the last page is turned.

  1. This sounds interesting, and about current issues with all the terrorism in the world. I relate to trying to live with a new normal, as I am a cancer survivor. I may have to get this one to read in my spare time. Thanks for sharing.

    • It is a very interesting read especially as it could relate to today. Your “spare time”? Is there such a thing? (I have such a big TBR pile of books just waiting for my “spare time” which never seems to happen.) Let me know what you think if you get a chance to read it. Thanks for visiting.
