After the Snow Falls... a book review

After The Snow Falls

An amazing book!

 I laughed. 

I cried.

I put myself in the character's shoes wondering how I would have handled their heartfelt issues.

Think about your life...what is your one unforgivable sin?
What is one thing someone has done to you that you just cannot forgive them?

As a young girl, Celia watched her father drive away not to return for many years.  Now as a parent herself, she watches in horror as her only son collapses on a soccer field during a shoot-out competition.  After testing in the children's hospital, she is blindsided by the diagnosis - a brain tumor.  While searching into conventional and alternative therapies, the family finds a new normal.  While facing the unknown and despair of cancer, her father returns after a 30-year absence bringing hope.  Can Celia forgive her father to embrace the hope being offered?  Will it make a difference, or is it too late?

Carey Jane Clark has written a novel so moving that I know this is the first of many more inspirational novels.  The characters become your friends and you find yourself cheering them on and praying for them as you read.  She has gently woven the gospel throughout the book, and the scriptures are ones we all need to reminded of in the midst of our own personal storms.

For more information on Carey Jane Clark and After the Snow Falls, check out her website at  For those who like to follow-up their reading with thought questions, Carey has included Book Club Questions on her website.

I received a complimentary copy of After the Snow Falls from Carey Jane Clark for my honest review.  And honestly, this is a MUST READ book for anyone having problems forgiving others... me included.
