WoW! My first book from author Katie Ganshert.. Contemporary novel. I didn't know what to expect from this book, had heard that it was good, but was unprepared for how good it actually is.
Autumn can't remember what actually happened on the day of the "Great Train Incident." All she knows is twenty-two people died, and she was the lone miraculous survivor. She was, at first, mistakenly identified as the wife of an author named Paul Elliot. So, Mr. Elliot's family went thru the excitement that their loved one survived and then the heartbreaking reality that she did not.
Autumn can't sleep, can't eat, can't go near public transportation, all because of the bombing of the train. She is obsessing over the dead, keeps a secret binder full of obituaries and articles pertaining to the terrorist act. The terrorist that placed the bomb on the train is still on the loose.
Her family worries about her. She sees a therapist regularly, but can't quit secretly roaming the cemetery late at night, when she can't sleep. She doesn't understand why twenty-two people lost their lives and she alone was spared.
One day, she receives a letter from Paul Elliot's young daughter. And her life begins to change.
Highly recommend this book. I received an advanced readers copy for my honest opinion (which will remain in my library Forever).
