Everything After book reviewEverything After by Jill Santopolo


Book Summary:

The Light We Lost mixes with a touch of Daisy Jones and the Six in this novel of first love, passion, and the power of choice–and how we cannot escape the people we are meant to be.

Two loves. Two choices. One chance to follow her dreams.

Emily has come a long way since she lost her two passions fifteen years ago: music, and Rob. She’s a psychologist at NYU who helps troubled college students like the one she once was. Together with her caring doctor husband, Ezra, she has a beautiful life. They’re happy. They hope to start a family. But when a tragic event in Emily’s present too closely echoes her past, and parts of her story that she’d hoped never to share come to light, her perfect life is suddenly upturned. Then Emily hears a song on the radio about the woman who got away. The melody and voice are hauntingly familiar. Could it be? As Emily’s past passions come roaring back into her life, she’ll find herself asking: Who is she meant to be? Who is she meant to love?

My Review:

I absolutely loved the ease of the writing style and found it a hard read to put down. The story follows the life of a married woman who gave up on her love of music after an accident many years before. Along with her love of music, she left behind her first love.

As both music and her previous relationship make their way back into her life, everything about her present-day self and marriage is questioned. I love books that include the complexities of relationships and Jill Santopolo shines with this!

Her previous novels The Light We Lost and More Than Words set the bar high and I am excited to report that this one is a winner too.

I am discussing this book over on my @bookstagram account @genthebookworm today and would love to hear your thoughts!
