Hereafter by Tara Hudson is quite a story, I must say. I don’t intend to spoil the story for you, so all I can say is that this story is quite a remarkable story to be read. It explore human emotions with conviction through the characters. It is nice to see that the heroine in this story is dynamic and have a spunky attitude of not giving up to what Fate dictates.

If you’re a fan of paranormal love story, then this is the book for you, and you wouldn’t want to miss a love story that transcends death.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars for the marvelous storytelling that could evoke a roller-coaster of emotional response even at first read.

Book description:

For Amelia, time has all but slowed to a stop as her spirit remains stranded alone in the dark waters of a mysterious river. She knows she’s died, but with no recollection of her past life–or her actual death–she’s trapped in one long continuous nightmare, in which she cannot feel anything or interact with anyone. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a teenage boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in a moment of connection, he looks in her eyes and becomes the first person in the world to see that she still exists.

When he touches her, Joshua sparks strange and wonderful sensory feelings in Amelia–at first just momentary flashes, then pulses that become ever stronger as he leads her out of the river and into his life. As Amelia and Joshua uncover who she was and the strange circumstances of her death, new problems arise: somehow, Joshua’s grandmother seems to know exactly what is going on between them, and Eli, a ghost enforcer, is hell-bent on destroying their happiness and dragging Amelia back into the spirit world.

With every touch and the growing feelings that come with them, Amelia and Joshua begin to wonder if there’s something special not only about Joshua but also the dark river that held her captive for so long. Can there truly be love after death?
