Emily Gold is a psychologist at NYU. She’s married to Ezra, a compassionate pediatric oncologist. She has a good life. But something is missing preventing her from being truly happy. There’s been a new love song playing on the radio from a rising star named Austin Roberts who sings about the one who got away. It is clear to Emily that she is the one the song is about. She starts to think about her life more than a decade earlier when she was madly in love with Rob (now Austin) and was a talented musician who loved performing. They played in a band together and dreamed of being a famous duo.
In Everything After, Jill Santopolo tells the story of a woman who must decide what path her life should take. Should she remain with the man she is married to, even as they face rough times, or find her way back to the great love of her past as well as her passion for music, which she also left behind? This heartfelt story is told in the third person as well as through Emily’s journal from her past. It’s an emotional “what if?” story of love, loss and second chances. And there are tough topics presented which make this book much more than a story of a love triangle.
