The After House by Michael Phillip Cash

My Thoughts
★★ cringing stars.
I received this book VIA NG in return for an honest review.

Lovely ending. But, I am sad to say, that is all I liked about it. Don't get me wrong, the story itself was beautiful. But the way it was written.. seemed to make the story suffer. I know the saying "I have a feeling it suffered in the translation" that's what I think of when I think of this book and it's story. The story bounced around so much I wasn't sure who was telling that point of view or who it had to do with till about half way through each swap. And honestly, I while reading, I didn't remember the characters to well. There was no bond there and I found that really sad. I think a reader should know the characters and feel like they are just drawn into the story... but I felt nothing on this.
