review Afterwards Afterwards review ↠ 3 Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller There is a fire and they are in there They are in there Black smoke stains a summer blue sky A school is on fire And one mother Grace sees the smoke and runs She knows her teenage daughter Jenny is inside She runs into the burning building to rescue herAfterwards Grace must find the identity of the arsonist and protect her family from the person who's still intent on destroying them Afterwards she must fight the limits of her physical strength and dis. I m afraid i was really disappointed with this Sister was fantastic but this certainly wasn t The mother and daughter as disembodied spirits just didn t work for me Grace talking to her hubby was really irritating and sometimes i wasn t even sure WHO she was meant to be addressing There was far too much gushing sentimentality very corny lines and why so much overuse of italics I didn t care about any of the characters either and all these things combined made this a bit of a slog Maybe if it had been told from Sarah s the police officer and sister in law of Gracepoint of view it would have worked Hopefully her next novel will leave out the supernatural stuff and just concentrate on producing something as good as Sister
