The Sweet Hereafter is a fictional story about two friends in the aftermath of a life-changing tragic accident, and the way they work through their grief and come to grips with their lives. The book is filled with slow-burn and emotional suspense. Enjoy!
I needed to write a literature review about The Sweet Hereafter and Green Mansions books. I read The Sweet Hereafter with pleasure and got an A+ for my book review. Russell Banks is a wonderful writer.
