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.--Goodreads
I have definitely read better ghost novels. I mostly stuck around to read about Joshua. Joshua for the most part was more interesting than Amelia, in fact I think I would have enjoyed Hereafter better if it were all in Joshua's point of view.
Every book has the crazy lady, in this novel it was Joshua's grandmother. Is it wrong to say I enjoyed reading about the crazy lady and the troubles she caused the main character?
There's not really much left to say, but the only real complaint I have is that Amelia was boring...
