"Here's what I know: Death abducts the dying, but grief steals from those left behind."
"The thing was, I knew, even then, I was saying goodbye to happiness. I felt it seeping away from me. Gone forever."
About SEEING JULIA:
Tragedy. Heartbreak. A decade of loss defines her, but an illicit connection to a stranger saves her, yet leaves her questioning her past, her life, and herself, most of all.
She's at the precipice of her life, looking over the edge and seeing nothing.
He saves her from herself.
The connection between them stirs something deep inside of her that she thought she had lost long ago. Now, she questions her ability to start over without looking back and wonders if she can move on if it means letting go of her past--a past that seemingly still defines her.
And, if she can't even see herself, how will others ever see her? She has...so many questions and holds on to so many secrets, but soon she must confront the truth about her life, about herself, in order to be set free.

"...an authentic look at grief and love. I believe anyone that has ever loved someone, lost them, and found a life and another love will devour Seeing Julia. Be forewarned: keep a box of Kleenex handy, as you will need them."

If you like dark, edgy compelling fiction with elements of love and romance, look for Katherine's other works in contemporary fiction by simply searching under NOT TO US or WHEN I SEE YOU.
This book is a combo of When I See You and The Truth and Lies books. Nothing original, so don't waste your time or money if you've read her other books. I suppose when you only write about death; you will quickly run out of original material.
Loved this book....could not put it down. A great love story with believable characters. Loved the twist and turns of the story, as it enfolded.
