Your fellow RIFers are smart, voracious readers like you, and they have great things to say about Sister.
Here’s a quick excerpt from Afterwards to whet your appetite:
There is a fire and they are in there. They are in there.
Black smoke stains a summer blue sky. A school is on fire. One mother, Grace, sees the smoke and runs. She knows her teenage daughter, Jenny is inside. She runs into the burning building to rescue her.
Afterwards, Grace must find the identity of the arsonist and protect her children from the person who’s still intent on destroying them. Afterwards, she must fight the limits of her physical strength and discover the limitlessness of love.
