Life After by Katie Ganshert

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.

REVIEW:  Whenever I request a book for review, my main goal is to finish the book because I know how much time and effort an author puts into writing one.  Unfortunately, I just couldn't immerse myself in this story, not because it was written poorly or anything like that; the story didn't interest me in the way that it probably would for most readers of faith books. I feel as though I shouldn't have requested this book, maybe my idea of what I thought it would be is what disappointed me. I read about 1/3 of the book before I finally decided to just let it go because the motivation isn't there to continue. I'm sorry that I wasn't able to read the entire book and I don't think it's right that I'm required to rate it, considering I couldn't finish it.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
