Can there truly be love after death?

Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.

Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.

Thrilling and evocative, with moments of pure pleasure, Hereafter is a sensation you won't want to miss.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 11, 2011 – For years, Amelia has drifted in an ambiguous haze, punctuated by nightmares. She knows she is dead; no one in the living world can see her; she has encountered no other ghosts; and, from her nightmares, she knows she died by drowning. This static, anguished existence suddenly changes when a boy falls into the river, dying before her eyes. As he fades, he sees Amelia, really sees her, galvanizing him to struggle and be saved. Thus begins the romance between Amelia and Joshua (who can still see and speak with her) as they grapple with maintaining the tenuous and mysterious electricity between them. The obvious difficulties are complicated by Joshua's grandmother, who insists that it is his job to exorcise Amelia, and the appearance of another ghost, who has an entirely different fate in mind for her. Using the device of Amelia's memory loss, Hudson avoids the chunks of exposition that sometimes weigh down paranormal stories, and the narrative gradually unfolds as Amelia and Josh learn her history. It's a straightforward tale, refreshingly without too much "apparatus," and an encouraging debut for Hudson. Ages 12 up.

Customer Reviews

Completely addicting

I loved this book. It grabbed my interest from the very beginning and held it all the way through. I rarely ever purchase a book after reading the sample, but I knew in the first couple pages I would be buying this one. I couldn't put it down! In fact, if I didn't have to go to work, I would have read it all in one day!
