Life After by Katie Ganshert

Into the Wild

Read Life After Online Free - 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.

"Bad things happen all the time, all over the world. And we believe in God's goodness. We believe He is good. We say He is good. Until bad things turn personal. That's when we start to question." Life After was such a moving and emotional story! This book really made a lasting impression on my he...

THIS BOOK . . . Life After . . . Oh my goodness . . . WOW- WOW- WOW!!!! In case you cannot tell by my zealously generous, bold typeface and gross overuse of exclamation points - I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! Why, you ask? It's really hard to explain. The book isn't just one genre, nor does it have only one u...

Where does one find words for emotions that have none? That would be my exact tangle of feelings after finishing this story a mere thirty minutes ago. It is a rare moment that I close the final pages of a book and immediately feel pressed to get my thoughts down on paper (or, in this instance, in...

Katie Ganshert’s Life After is one of those books that I have a hard time conveying just how much I loved it and just how profound of an impression it made on me. Of the handful of contemporary authors that I read, Ganshert is one at the top of that list and deservedly so. In this story, she deal...

Katie's trademark is writing beautiful novels about broken people. In Life After, Autumn Manning struggles to make sense of why she is the lone survivor of a train explosion. She is not at all at peace with herself and barely ekes out an existence. It is a well written story with details unraveling...

I had the privilege of reading an advanced copy of Life After. Katie Ganshert is a favorite novelist of mine and I was eager to dive in. Always a masterful storyteller, Ganshert ups her game in Life After. You feel the desperation, the isolation, and the loss felt from the one survivor of a train...

I am blown away. I think this may be my favorite book of 2017. I saw this on my sister-in-law's bookshelf, picked it up, read the prologue, and was immediately hooked. As soon as I got home, I grabbed it from my library, and couldn't wait to dig in. This is the first novel I have read by Katie Gan...

Wow. There are so many things I thought about while I read this book. Surprisingly, I didn't cry (which I tend to do with books dealing with grief), but felt very introspective. I think that's due to Autumn's detached observations, her coping mechanisms, and the deep questions she and other chara...

An enjoyable, absorbing, heartfelt story. After having a miss with Katie Ganshert in The Art of Losing Yourself, I was hesitant to try again; but because of friends' excellent reviews, I decided to give it a try. I'm quite glad I did! The characters were so vivid and so well-drawn. I especially e...

The prologue had me immediately engaged, and from there it never let up. Autumn’s life has been changed dramatically, and no one around her can relate to what she has been through. This book grapples with the weight of survival and the pressure to make your survival mean something This story takes...
