Remy Galway and her daughter Olivia are rebuilding their life after a failed marriage in a 300 year old cottage in historic Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island. Little do they know, another occupant is lurking in the haven of their own home. Will the After House be their shelter or their tomb?
It seems whenever I read something from Michael Phillip Cash, I find myself enjoying this author more and more. He is highly talented and impresses me with his wisdom for the supernatural premise of storytelling. I always start his books thinking they will be slightly scary, but then find myself falling in love with the characters and the plot.
The After House was no different. I loved this story! The cover is beautifully crafted and does cause me to believe it will be slightly frightening but I was wrong. It personally didn't scare me at all; but it did make me question the shifting shadows in my own home.
Mr. Cash pushes us to question what we aren't sure about and forces us to contemplate the unknown, such as ghosts and the paranormal.
I loved the interaction between the characters in this book so much! Olivia is adorable and it is hard to imagine her as a "spawn of Satan" as Eli likes to refer to her. It seems everyone in the story is important and ties in to the past as well as the future of the town. I loved the research done to create such a wonderful love story. I really think this is one of my favorite books by Mr. Cash.
I highly encourage anyone to give this book a try. I literally finished it in one day and was hoping for a little more too! I would love to read some more about the other characters beside Remy and Hugh, as I felt they are what added to the story more than anyone else.
The After House was a great story and made a day that started out rough, eventually turn into a wonderful evening! Everyone, please try this book out! You will not be disappointed!
