    1. Talk about a heart wrencher This was my first audiobook in a hot minute, but I needed something for a solo trip to Savannah this weekend and it was the perfect length down to the minute While some parts were predictable, the characters were relatable and my heart truly went out to Levon This one was just a bit over 8 hours which made it a great length for a newbie to Audiobooks and it was one you could zone in and out and not fall behind Another great story from Rochelle I received my copy from [...]

    3. Heart wrenching, powerful, moving story Honest, realistic book.As the Kellers deal with grief so so SO much grief , we learn about these flawed but real characters Their pain is actually palpable and each page and revelation, specially the ending and every twist, will have you shedding than a couple of tears I can t not mention that Lucy Bell is such a compelling creature, that will add freshness to the plot and get you thinking about pureness and forgiveness.

    4. This is a very powerful and heart wrenching book about a family dealing with loss I loved Levon and adored Lucy Bell, who becomes a great friend to Levon The writing of this book is beautifully done I wasn t sure how I was going to feel about it while reading as it really is quite sad, but I ended up loving this book So very well done

    5. I loved this highly emotional realistic book of a family dealing with grief and the secrets surrounding the circumstances of the grief Review coming up

    6. I know of a mother who lost her child to a lingering illness Though not unexpected, she was so grief stricken she almost succumbed and lost herself Nothing can ever prepare a parent when death takes away a child, unexpected or otherwise.I like that the title, though very simple, is catchy, and so apt The story examines all the facets of the storm that a family goes through after the tragic death of a child It presents the casualties of relationships gone bad It shows the divide in time, and how [...]

    7. At first, I wasn t impressed with this book Although the title CLEARLY says, The MOURNING After for some reason I expected, the sadness to last a lot less than it did With that being said, I couldn t put the book down, I was waiting for the moment to come when their sadness was no longer there and it didn t happen till the end Rochelle Weinstein, did a great job capturing the grief of ALL the family members, while I myself have never lost a child, I believe the way the mother was portrayed to be [...]

    8. This page turner is a must read I think that everybody can relate to the characters in this book Moms with teens, married couples and so many but most importantly the family with a child who has GSD The author has done an amazing job with the emotions and feelings of each character I couldn t put this book down reading it in 48 hours It tugs at your heart strings and has left me with tears in my eyes Dr Weinstein is a brilliant doctor and Rochelle your beautifully written story facilitates the [...]

    9. This is another wonderfully sensitive treatment of grief within the family unit The family is forever changed when one member dies What if it is the oldest child the golden boy good in sports, academics and social interactions and the driver of the car is his brother who describes himself as invisible to his parents The family dynamics change, then change again when the younger son shares his secret of the night his brother died It is an excellent story well told.

    10. I am still reading this book but can say that I am thoroughly enjoying the story line and characters I love the way the book slowly peels away the secrets within the characters lives I also like the way the story moves back and forth between the first day and the present I have a hard time putting this book down Now that I ve finished this book, I m wishing the story had not yet ended and that I could continue to read it today.

    11. Great page turner Forgiveness is the theme of this novel and let s face it, we can all benefit from forgiveness The author did a great job developing the characters Everyone was relatable I would highly recommend this book.

    12. Sad story Grief effects everyone differently Grief isn t just about death Great story about family and friendship and how time can heal pain.

    13. Very goodI like a novel that teaches me something This one did Interesting, believable characters in a storyline that actually led somewhere.

    14. Not sure how I chose a seemingly YA story but this really could apply to many family dynamics Told from the point of view of Levon, the often overlooked middle child, he carries a heavy burden after a tragedy that tears his family apart In comes the new neighbor with her own secrets, which after building trust with Levon, she is able to share and really show him how to heal and stand up for himself She is a breath of fresh air for him and challenges him on every level.This was well written with [...]

    15. Kept my attentionThis book was different Characters were well developed Even sometimes it was predictable, I appreciated the honesty of the characters.It kept me interested I would recommend it.

    16. I couldn t help but love and care deeply about Levon The secret Levon was keeping was probably why I finished it at all I needed to know what it was and I needed to know he was ok.

    17. The beginning and the end were engrossing the middle dragged a bit for this reader.I was initially engrossed in the story of two parents whose eldest son died when the car driven by his younger brother hit a tree under mysterious circumstances Adding to the pathos was the rare, potentially fatal disease, afflicting the young daughter The Keller family was forever changed.Or were they David Keller, the deceased son, was the Golden Boy, the apple of his mother s eye, the boy who could do no wrong [...]

    18. After I finished reading the very last word of this book, I closed it, hugged it to my chest, and just sat there on my couch, not moving for minutes, lost in thought Wow That s all I can say right now My mind and heart are still racing from the excitement of the story Never before have I read a book that was so powerful, so meaningful I felt emotionally attached to all the characters, especially Levon and Lucy, and I found myself happy when they were, sad when they were, worried when they, too, [...]

    19. I received this book for free through First Reads After the initial look at the title and book description, it seemed to me that the book would be really sad and depressing.While it is true that the book is sad, there is a lot to be learned from it The novel takes an in depth look at family dynamics, loss of loved ones, friendships, forgiveness, honesty, and other such traits.I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to anyone seeking something a little different, fresh, and new in [...]

    20. This book far exceeded my expectations I expected to be crying through 75% of it and the sadness to be almost too much for me to handle I can t even explain how wrong I was It is an awesome book that is witty and humorous with simply a sad situation Mrs Weinstein did an amazing job of showing the main character, Levon s, transformation He was an excellent character with a lot of depth that I could imagine knowing in my own life The little sister, Chloe, was an eye opener and the perfect life mes [...]

    21. Good read but just a few notes.First, let me say that I liked this book It was well written, and the characters are likable However, I d like to mention two things 1 The grammar is incorrect in some different places For example, you re is used contraction for you are when it should have been the possessive your as in speaking about your mother not you re mother This is very irritating to me as irrational as that may be 2 At one point, GSD is explained as the opposite of diabetes This is incorrec [...]

    22. I began reading this book at night and became so ravenous to get further through this amazing, heartfelt story that I finished it before my husbands alarm went off which occurs at 4 30 in the morning This book touched my heart and spirit Not only did this amazingly talented author publish something so beautiful but she brought up awareness for a debilitating, life threatening, and obscure disease I felt the losses as this family endured them and I also lived through the disease symptoms and cons [...]

    25. Levon Keller and his brother David are in a tragic car accident that kills David His parents are devastated at losing their oldest child, and blame Levon, if not by words then by actions Levon is racked with guilt, guilt that eats away at him and has no one to turn to That is until Lucy Bell moves next door Lucy knows that Levon is keeping a secret about the accident that he tries to suppress I found Lucy a strong heroin of the story, she helps Levon deal with what he is going through, his only [...]

    26. I did not love this book actually, I couldn t wait for it to end and found myself skimming through the heavily detailed parts I think the issue is that the author tried to incorporate too many story lines 1 the death of the prodigal son, David, 2 Lucy s storyline, 3 Levon s love interest in Lucy, 4 Becky, David s girlfriend, 5 Chloe s disease 6 dad s dabblings it goes on and on She couldn t really devote ample time to any of the storylines because of how many there were.The most important storyl [...]
