    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

    My Review:
    While this book took me a bit to get into I found it to be altogether a pretty good story.
    I always adore a good love story with twists that have you cheering the characters on and hoping they beat all the odds and boy do they have some to beat!
    Between nightmares, memory loss, The evil villain,  family and the fact Amelia is a ghost you have your choice of which plot twist you like most.
    I recommend this story with 3 out of 5 stars!
