"From the author of the acclaimed bestseller Sister comes a gripping, thrilling story of a mother who will do anything to protect her child.

I enjoyed it. I read it from a family perspective (mother, daughter, older sister) and could definitely relate. ( )

I kept reading because of the mystery aspect but found the disembodied points of view of the catastrophically injured mother and daughter difficult to entirely embrace. ( )

I Iiked this book a lot more than I expected to. Mystery with a twist. Could not put it down. ( )

Although the book begins well and the tension is gradually increasing, yet at some point, I felt already heavy stress due to the decline in repeated details about the investigation of the fire in the school. The prolonged interrogations conducted by the supervisor of all the school officials made the reading a burden, and at a particular stage, I skipped toward the end with the goal of finally ending the book.

Not at all a disappointment as a follow-up to her debut. Granted, the more I thought about it the more there were certain aspects that I didn't particularly like. For instance, the entire crime seemed to be hinged around the pretty girl/ugly girl dichotomy, which is incredibly irritating. And it is really possible to have 2nd/3rd degree burns all over your body, significant enough to damage your heart permanently, and in the end leave no scarring? I guess my biggest issue with the novel was the fascination with beauty. Very irritating. But I did like how the protagonist was basically writing a love story to her husband. ( )

Psychological suspense is the genre of choice for glorifying the bond between mother and child: mother rushes into burning building, sacrifices life to save child, earns place in paradise. More than a flip paradigm, that’s the actual plot of AFTERWARDS, a gripping novel about a mother’s nightmare. Grace Covey is among the proud parents on the field for sports day at the Sidley House Preparatory School when a fire breaks out inside the building. Cut to the hospital, where Grace is in a coma with brain injuries and her “appallingly hurt” 17-year-old daughter, Jenny, is in the burn unit. To add to her woes, Grace’s 8-year-old son, Adam, is suspected of having set the fire.

Een prachtige dag
Een vreselijk misdaad.
To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour
