When Rachel and Aidan fell in love, they thought it was forever.
She was a brilliant, high-flying scientist. He was her loving and supportive husband.
Now she’s gone, and Aidan must carry on and raise their daughter alone.
But Rachel has left behind her life’s work, a gift of love to see them through the dark days after her death.
A gift called iRachel.
Oh The After Wife was beautiful. Simply beautiful.
You wouldn’t think a book featuring a robot could be so gorgeously emotional, but the heart of this novel has little to do with the science and everything to do with an exploration of love, loss and finding a way into an unexpected future.
Cass Hunter writes with a simple complexity, involving the reader in her character’s lives as if they were right next door, it is entirely addictively wonderful and genuinely heart breaking – if you read the restaurant scene and don’t well up just a little you must have a heart of stone.
Quirky, with truth at the centre of it, an emotionally charged finale and some unforgettable characters, The After Wife is a clever, nuanced tale of all that which makes us human.
Loved it. Highly Recommended.
