Back in January, I received an invitation to be part of the Launch Team for Life After. And now the release day has finally come! I am so excited to share my review with you.
I really loved Life After. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. It is full of suspense and touching moments.
The story was great. Even though you think you know how it's going to end, there were quite a few surprises that I didn't see coming. Also, the bombing wasn't used as a cheap excuse for a dramatic love story, but the consequences were very realistic. And Life After is so much more than a love story! Yes, there is a love story, but the novel is also about the protagonists' families, guilt and forgiveness.
The characters felt very real and authentic to me. I appreciated that the side characters weren't flat or stereotypical, but real and complex characters. Autumn, Paul, his daughter Reese and his son Tate were especially amiable, but I also liked the other characters.
My favorite quote from the book.
It was the first of Katie's books that I read, but I'm pretty sure that it won't be the last. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone that loves to read Christian fiction. For me, it was the best Christian novel I've read so far!
