    Sweet, Hereafter Reviews

  •  Susan

    Having read the other titles in the trilogy, I think Sweet, Hereafter is a deft closing. This final installment is about Sweet, a young girl we meet through Marley in Heaven. Sweet is odd; she wears k...

    I heard Angela Johnson speak recently. She said this book took her five years and she didn't want to write it in the first place. Heaven was intended as a stand-alone; she got talked into The First Pa...
