Hosted by ShouldBeReading, FRIDAY FINDS showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased).
My one and only Friday Find (it was a busy week) was from An Interior Journey.
Afterwards by Roseamund Lupton
Book Summary (from Amazon.com):
The school is on fire. Her children are inside.
Grace runs toward the burning building, desperate to reach them.
In the aftermath of the devastating fire which tears her family apart, Grace embarks on a mission to find the person responsible and protect her children from further harm. This fire was not an accident, and her daughter Jenny may still be in grave danger. Grace is the only one who can discover the culprit, and she will do whatever it takes to save her family and find out who committed the crime that rocked their lives. While unearthing truths about her life that may help her find answers, Grace learns more about everyone around her — and finds she has courage she never knew she possessed.
Powerful and beautiful, with a riveting story and Lupton’s trademark elegant style that made Sister such a sweeping success, Afterwards explores the depths of a mother’s unswerving love.
Why is this TBR-Worthy?
First of all, look at this deliciously creepy and disturbing cover. An empty slide illuminated in the dark suggests loss of a child. The premise sounds intriguing and the review given by An Interior Journey gave it very high praise. I picked this one up from the library last night!
