Kathy Ottenabout this book: He survived the war, now his life has come down to one last self-less act.
After the Dark is a sweet, short story romance.
Months in the trenches of France have left Liam Gallagher wondering why he has survived when better men did not. His guilt intensifies when he returns home only to come down with the deadly Spanish Influenza sweeping the country. Once again Liam lives when thousands do not.
Now the only bright spot in his monotonous life is the time he spends each day walking with Rosalie Moretti. Their talks give him hope for the future, a future he hopes will include this vibrant, loving woman. Until one dark, catastrophic afternoon, when Liam realizes the reason his life was spared has come down to minutes and his ability to perform one selfless act.
After the Dark is based on a true event in Boston history. The Great Molasses Flood occurred in January of 1919 when a large molasses storage tank ruptured and devastated the North End of Boston.
