Can there truly be love after death?
Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.
Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.
Thrilling and evocative, with moments of pure pleasure, Hereafter is a sensation you won't want to miss.

Tara Hudson was born and raised in Oklahoma. She graduated with a degree in law, mostly because she believed all the horror stories about English majors and their careers in the food-service industry. Luckily she soon remembered how much she loved telling ghost stories, particularly to her girlfriends, who liked visiting abandoned cemeteries as much as she did. Hereafter began as a story for them.
Tara currently lives in Oklahoma with her husband, son, and a menagerie of ill-behaved pets.Review:
