A stranded spirit, and a love story that crosses the divide between the living and the dead...

In this hauntingly lovely sequel to HEREAFTER, Amelia – still trapped somewhere between life and death – continues to fight for her relationship with her mortal love, Joshua.

Looking for answers, they visit some of Joshua’s relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia just ends up with more questions... and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.

Then Amelia meets other spirits in-between and begins to seriously consider joining them. Caught between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the nether world can choose for her.

About the author (2012)

Tara Hudson is a brand new author, but her fascination with ghosts goes back to childhood days spent with her
grandmother, who would take her out to a strange cemetery guarded by rusted iron gates and tucked into the
mountains of south-eastern Oklahoma. Only later did she learn that this place was her family’s graveyard. Ever
since, she‘s continued to visit cemeteries – with her two closest girl friends. After a particularly eerie visit, she
began writing a story to entertain them, imagining a ghost girl, Amelia, and the living boy who can truly see
her. It became ‘Hereafter’, the haunting story of loss and first love.
