Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of the acclaimed New York Times bestseller Sister comes a compelling, thrilling story of a mother who will do anything to protect her child.

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.

Review:

"Readers...will be equally smitten with Afterwards, as much an homage to the mother-daughter relationship as it is a crime novel....There are so many twists, turns and heartbreaks in this tragic, tense novel." USA Today

Review:

"Lupton takes her readers on a totally harrowing ride as she melds a suspenseful procedure with an emotionally fraught drama.

Booklist, starred review

Review:

"A wonderful mix of smart thriller with tear-provoking literature; a fine blend of Jodi Picoult and P.D. James....Lupton has written a riveting story that will resonate with readers long after they have turned the last page." Library Journal, starred review

"A full-throttle psychological thriller, ring-fenced by a mother's love....With each turn of the page, Lupton seems to add another element and motive to the mix....This compulsive read confirms Lupton's instinctive commercial flair." Kirkus

Synopsis:

When her children's school is set ablaze, Grace runs into the burning building to rescue her teenage daughter, Jenny. In the aftermath, badly injured, Grace learns the police have identified the arsonist, but they have blamed the wrong person. Only Detective Sarah McBride, the sister-in-law Grace has never liked, is searching for the real arsonist — a hunt that becomes urgent when it's clear Jenny is still the perpetrator's target.

Page-turning suspense combines with a beautiful portrayal of deep family bonds to make this a stunning and riveting read.
