This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “After Elise” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
“After Elise” is a novel about unexpected tragedy and how it changes the lives of a dysfunctional family while demonstrating that patience, understanding and forgiveness bring hope. Teri Berger’s car skids in the rain, killing twenty-year-old Elise and leaving Teri reeling with guilt and the rest of her family in disarray as they struggle to adjust to this new reality. Already strained family relationships are tested, and Teri’s marriage suffers, her son withdraws, and her daughter faces a heartbreaking decision. “After Elise” confronts readers with the most everyday tragedy—an accident that could happen to anyone—and its effects, changing the lives forever of everyone involved.
