"Lupton isn't just good – she's wickedly good"
Just over 2 weeks till 'Afterwards' is published in the USA and The Seattle Times have given it a rave review:
"Afterwards" by Briton Rosamund Lupton, is a bold, impossible-to-categorize, and riveting blend of psychological suspense, literary thriller and the paranormal.
Grace and her daughter Jenny have been caught in an arson fire at Jenny's school. They're both in hospital, unconscious and gravely injured, but their spirits are somehow able to move, trailing family members and physicians around the hospital's halls.
(How Lupton pulls this off, making it believable even to this skeptical reviewer, is a wonder.)
Like the author's remarkable debut, "Sister," a major subtext here is the all-powerful tug of family bonds….
"Afterwards" proves that Lupton isn't just good — she's wickedly good.
