Summary

Three women: a mother, a daughter, a friend. Can they save each other from the past?

It’s been twenty-six years since the accident, but Helen still lives on autopilot, going through the motions of work and motherhood. Her one wish is for her daughter Julia to settle down with her own family - so Helen can let go.

Julia has dealt with her mother’s emotional distance by looking for love in all the wrong places. But when her latest choice drives away her best friend, Claire, Julia realises she’s on her own.

Impossibly perfect Claire is so busy caring for everyone - even her cheating ex-husband - that she’s forgotten to look after herself. Reeling from Julia’s betrayal, she doesn’t know who to trust.

As their lives unravel, these three women reconnect in unexpected ways. But with a devastating secret still hanging over them, will they ever be able to leave the past behind?

Revised edition: Previously published in South Africa as The Accident, this edition of The Aftermath includes editorial revisions.

Good Story

This book is told in four points of view, Helen, her daughter, Julia, Clare, Julia's BFF and Daniel, Clare's husband. It took me awhile to get into this book. There is a bit of drama, i love it. This book has made me angry and sad at the same time. The ending shocked me, that's why i like this book. I never saw it coming, I thought it would go one way and BAM! it all changed. It was a great ending. #TheAftermath #NetGalley
