“Life After” by Kate Gnshert, book review
The train exploded. Everyone in the car was killed, except Autumn. Even a year later, it is still too much for her to accept. Why her? All the others had so much more reason to live. But she alone was saved. Now she is trying to put her life back together and maybe even help the families of those killed.
Autumn was initially mistaken for Vivian, mother of 2 and wife to Paul. As the weeks and months pass, Autumn and Paul find themselves thrown together by various situations. But both are carrying so much guilt and grief, that they are just barely holding themselves together.
Autumn begins work on a tribute to those lost in the explosion. Through this experience, she finds closure to her own pain.
This is a wonderful story of healing and forgiveness. It explores deep places in the character’s lives and how God’s grace and forgiveness will solve man’s deep problems.
